Bengaluru Pete City Market Half-Day Walking Tour

We are eager to show you a side of our city that is not often mentioned in the guide book but holds a special place for us locals. The heart of our city Bengaluru lies in its markets, locally called “Pete”. Around this epicentre are a magnificent palace, a beautiful temple and small units of silk weavers, goldsmiths, artisans and some delightful quaint hole in the wall cafe. Our walk through this region will connect the dots between all of the spaces you will visit transporting you seamlessly between the then and now of Bengaluru.

This is a guided experience and includes a hearty brunch.

Note: Some of the tour attractions cannot be experienced on Sundays as they would be closed. Alternatively, we will replace the visit to the silk weaving and Jewellery unit with a walk about the jewellery market and the fine fabric market.
