What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Mysore Palace and Srirangapatna Day Trip from Bangalore

Private Mysore Day Trip from Bangalore

Your private driver and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Bangalore hotel at approximately 6:15 am. Your all-day tour will kick off with a 4-hour journey to Mysore—known as the ‘City of Palaces’—in the comfort of your own private, air-conditioned vehicle. 

Along the way, stop in the famed city of Srirangapatna. Located about 8 miles (14 km) from Mysore, this former state capital is home to the incredible Dariya Daulat Palace. Stretch your legs and explore the well-kept gardens of Daria Daulat Bagh, which surround this much-loved summer palace. Built in 1784, this beautiful and historically significant structure houses a museum dedicated to the sultan that’s filled with Persian manuscripts, European paintings and other rare artifacts. Your professional guide will explain the architectural features of this impressive space, which include pillars made of teakwood, frescoes of battle scenes and wide-open corridors that are perfect for 
exploring.

After working up an appetite, enjoy a typical Indian lunch at a local restaurant before arriving in Mysore for more exploring. 

Start your tour at Mysore Palace (Amba Vilas Palace). This impressive museum showcases royal costumes and paintings that were previously owned by the Wodeyars—a family that once called this iconic residence home. Learn about royalty who ruled Mysore for seven centuries from your local guide as you meander through the halls and galleries.. 

Wander the 3-story granite palace and marvel at its impressive pink marble domes and beautiful arches. Get an up close look at the rosewood doorway inlayed with ivory that leads to the Ambavilasa hall. Marvel at the ornate mosaic floor and glass ceilings and check out the Indian ceremonial objects and European sculptures that are on display here. Listen as your guide explains the significance of the marriage hall (Kalyana Mantapa) where peacock motifs and geometric patterns decorate the eight-sided room. Your guide will point out unique the unique features of this Indo-Sacacenic architectural masterpiece, which blends elements of Hindu, Raiput, Muslim and gothic styles into a thing of beauty. 

Relax and unwind in air-conditioned comfort on the 4-hour return trip to your Bangalore hotel. Your guide and driver can stop for dinner (at own expense) if hungry strikes on the way home.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

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 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.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2013

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.
