Special Assignments - Case Studies
Here’s a sample of some special assignments we have handled. In most of these cases, the client had a very specific objective which we helped them achieve through a customised city-based themed tour. Contact us for special requests – you will be surprised how much Bangalore has to offer for a variety of niche, specialised interests.
Google
Google chose Bangalore to host the global Google MapMaker Conference - for its top contributors from around the world. This diverse, yet specialised, group needed a special introduction to the city and the country. We designed a customised, themed tour that explored Bangalore's cartographic history and contributions to the science of map-making.
"The conference was a success, the tour was one of the highlights. All the participants enjoyed it" " – Ajith Kumar, Program Manager, Google
British Council
The British Council was hosting a conference of its Science Innovator Network which involved scientists from across Asia & Europe. Our themed tour explored the Science City and traced the city’s important contributions to global scientific knowledge.
"A unique tour – highly appreciated" - Rajesh Parishwad, British Trade Office
LeadersQuest
LeadersQuest conducts leadership training for UK businessand givernment leaders. These Quests regularly brings British leaders to Bangalore to study India – its culture and religions. Our Living Faiths of India is an in-depth tour of India’s religiious landscape.
Right here in Bangalore.
"I llearnt more about 4 religions in one afternoon that I had in 18 years at school!" - Participant in Quest 2009
Bengaluru International Airport
Bangalore is India’s Aerospace City, and hosts the world’s 4th Largest air show. BIAL is also the first successful private airport in the country, and attracts several visotors, investors and consultants. Our themed tour – Romancing the Skies" takes visitors through the city’s aerospace history.
The fresh perspective and depth of information you bring out during the tours is truly amazing" - Marcel Hungerbuehler, CEO, Bengaluru International Airport.

The Great Arc Bikers Challenge
A bunch of crazy cross-country bikers from the UK were attempting a KanyaKumari - Hyderabad rally along the Great Arc of India – the 82E longitude based on the Trigonometric Survey of India. During their rest day in Bangalore, we created a themed tour that explored this city’s contributions to this seminal 19th century study.
Coffee Board of India
Bangalore is India’s Coffee Capital and hosts the India Internation Coffe Fair.
Executives from the world's leading coffee companies (incl Starbucks) descend on the city every two years. We had a different take and designed a special "Bangalore By 2 Coffee Tour" which took them through the history and idiosyncracies of South Indian Filter coffee at some of the city’s favourite coffee shops.
