Bangalore Walking Tours – 3 Self Guided Exciting Options!

Written by Poorna & Brinda

Walking tour of a city is always fun and interesting. It helps you understand a city and its neighbourhoods better. Walking along and exploring a city brings you close to the people, heritage and culture of the place. Self guided Bangalore walking tours are easy to do and not strenuous.

We always love to explore the place we go to on foot. We normally take a walking tour with a guide for lack of information for a self guided walking tour. A self-guided walking tour also allows you to spend your time leisurely and absorb the essence of the place.

We were mulling on this idea of “Self-guided walking tours” for Bangalore.  These self-guided walking tours are easy to do. We have made sure the walking tour covers around 5 KMs and can be done in 4-5 hours. With adequate breaks, it helps explore neighbourhoods by walking around leisurely.

Bangalore walking tours are good way to explore the city. The city of Bangalore has many things which can be seen and experienced on foot. We continue to build on this list of walking tours to cover different parts of the city.

Put on your shoe and keep walking. And exploring!

Have you visited Tipu Sultan Palace in Bangalore? Did you know that Bangalore has a Tipu Sultan Palace? Yes, it does and is in good condition! Though smaller than what it used to be. Tipu Sultan Palace and Bangalore Fort was the centre point of the Bangalore city in 17th century. It was around the palace and fort that the city developed.

The Bangalore fort area which was later administered by Maharaja of Mysore saw lot of development and many elegant public buildings were built. This walking tour will help you explore Tipu Sultan palace, lovely buildings, a temple and a church.

We are Brinda and Poorna from Bengaluru, the “Silicon city” or “Garden city” of India.

We travel together. We caught the travel bug 20 years back. On our honey moon, we traveled over the sea, in the train, by bus and in an aircraft! Our adventures probably started in that year. It continues, ever since.
