What is City Explorer?

City Explorer is our flagship program for people who want to explore cities in a deeper and nuanced way to learn its history, its people, and the communities that thrive here. Spread over 5 weekends, this program will be run in 2 editions – one in Bangalore and the other in Mysore.

Program Overview

This program is designed to offer expertise in urban history, storytelling, research, and curating experiences through the lenses of history, culture, architecture, and cuisine.

You will be enrolling for a hybrid program with both in-person and on-line sessions. By the end of this program, you will be a pro in exploring the historical, economical, and social fabric of your city!

We have only 20 slots for each city. The program fee will be ₹7,500 in Bangalore and ₹5,500 in Mysore, inclusive of taxes.

If you need assistance with the program fee, drop us a line on explore@gully.tours. We will consider requests from deserving applicants.
