Wonderful glimpse of the city. Our drive , Nagesh was pleasant and capable. Our tour guide, Vinay, was knowledgeable and informative. Enjoyed the botanical gardens, Tipu Sultan's palace, Bangalore Fort and Bangalore Palace. It was a government holiday, so we were only able to view the Vidhana Soudha building from outside. Instead we stopped at Bull Temple and a silk shop. Great day, I would highly recommend this tour.
Great day! Our driver, Raghu, was pleasant, capable and informative. We had several hours with him on our drive from Bangalore to Mysore. He pointed out things if interest along the way, the drive was very enjoyable and informative. Our tour guide, also named Raghu, was knowledgeable, informative and funny. Mysore Palace was breathtaking! The palace alone could be an all day adventure. We enjoyed the architecture and art at both Mysore Palace and Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace. Very long but enjoyable day. If time permits, take two days to see Mysore and surrounding areas.
Great tour, especially if you're pressed for time. A leisurely ~4-5 hours with knowledgeable tour guides.

Great full day tour to these impressive historic sites. Tour guide and driver were very accommodating to my request not to shop - thank you very much! Both were well versed in not only the historic buildings and culture but to the plants, trees and other natural sites.
Worth doing if you are in a bind(as was my case). It's really very taxing to do that much driving in one day. I still had a very good day and the tour guide was very informative. It was my first proper trip in India and it was certainly an eye opener and the temples + palace was very interesting.
In relation to the price - once you get to India, the price was very expensive. The initial offering said from 100US but ended up being 350dollars- I was happy with that and I booked at very late notice.
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback! We wanted to help clarify the cost for this tour. Private Tours are generally priced by the car (instead of by the person) but due to system limitations, all of our tours are listed with per person prices. The "From USD" rates listed on the front page of any of our tours are the lowest possible price for that tour. However, in cases of Private Tours, if you're not completely filling the vehicle they offer, you may end up paying a higher per person rate. We always recommend putting in your information as though you were booking your tour to get the most accurate quote. You will be given your total before you're asked to enter your credit card number.
We hope this information helps, and hope you had an excellent time on holiday!
