What Our Clients Say
This is the best tour in India!!! There are not words to express what a great day it was seeing and learning about the amazing places in Bangalore and all the way to Mysore!
A fantastic tour and guide! “The name Hidden Gems describes so well the experience he gives as he shows places off the beaten path that one would never experience otherwise! I highly recommend Praveen as the one who can show you a wonderful experience of the richness and beauty of India!”
Great immersion into local history – best guided tour! I fully recommend this day tour. Praveen is a top-class guide, very kind, professional, reliable and knowledgeable. The places we visited are fabulous, but the details he shared with us and his storytelling made the experience unique.
I had an absolute wonderful experience during this tour. This was my first trip to India and the tour and Praveen left me wanting to come back for more! I have done many guided tours and this one was certainly at the top of my list. Very well organized and had an absolutely fabulous and memorable day! I highly recommend this tour…you will not regret it! 5 stars ++!
This was truly a highlight of a two week trip to India. Praveen brought Bangalore to life and really opened our eyes to the depth of history and culture that the city has to offer. His knowledge of the history of the city and its people has changed the way we look at a big Indian city and he has left us with memories that will come to the fore whenever we think of India.
We’ve been to Bangalore before but we saw many places we had not visited before. Praveen was very knowledgable and a delight. This is one of the highlights of our India trip this time. We would definitely repeat this tour or do another running tour with Praveen and we welcome him for a running tour in the New Forest in the UK.
Six friends and I from were in Bangalore for the wedding of one of our Harvard Business School classmates at the end of January. When we realized we had a half day free, I called Praveen, who I had found on TripAdvisor, and arranged a tour on extremely short notice. I’ve traveled extensively and this tour was among the very best I’ve ever been on. Praveen is not only a fountain of knowledge and wisdom but by the end of the tour, I felt like we were old friends. Absolutely not to be missed!
Parveen curated and narrated a superb tour of Cubbon Park and Malleshwaram for a group of undergraduate students from Toronto, Canada, an administrator and me, a director of Study Abroad course. The tour began in Cubbon Park and Praveen quickly contextualized the origins of Bangalore. He shared his vast knowledge and archival photos and also arranged for refreshments. I highly recommend Praveen as a way to immerse and learn about the rich history and unfolding present of Bangalore.
