A Recent Review of this tour

Carl is an excellent person, I'll recommend for any person who ask me when visit Bangalore. A very caring person, friendly and provided me an great view of city. The visit was exactly how I was planning. I visited the Bangalore Castle, passed on some temples, parks and also had time to visit the marked on the city centre. Thanks Carl for all your support and for the excellent tour.
