What people are saying about Mysore
Amazing tour and you must book this one! Local guide and he me for a traditional breakfast of rice cake, lentil donut with amazing dipping sauces. Putti and medu vada I think are the traditional names. Next we went to the Mysore Palace and a local guide took over. Saw the delights of the royal palace and the amazing architecture and materials used. Next to the silk worm factory (other destination had Muslim protests so we had to avoid) where we had a tour of how the silk is extracted and spun into glorious fabrics. Very noisy and busy and amazing to see. Next stop a traditional lunch on banana leaf. I copied my guide to eat the local way. Food was incredible and not something I would have tasted without a local person taking me there. My guide chatted throughout the journey about the history of India and the areas, different cultures (additional to the main tour description). Although the tour was more expensive than others in India it is worth every penny! 10/10!
I had a great time touring the Mysore area with Vishnu as my guide. He did an outstanding job helping me to not only know about what I was looking at, but also to truly appreciate the historical and cultural significance of each location. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in expanding outside of the Bangalore area!
We had an excellent guide & all aspects were taken care of: transport, lunch, breaks, tickets even dealing with pushy sales people.
Overall very good experience! Initially slightly late departure but made up by the good guide, different sites and visits!
