Narayanan from Five Senses Tours was very helpful in switching the dates of two tours, one of which was this tour, because the toy factory is closed on Sundays. (That should be in the tour description.)It took two hours to drive from my hotel to where we picked up the guide, due to traffic. Not the fault of the tour company or the tour guide or the driver - traffic in Bengaluru is ridiculous.Satish, my guide, could not have been more helpful. He stopped at a roadside stand to give me the chance to taste tender coconut (before the outer shell hardens; you drink the liquid inside). He chose very interesting foods for lunch. I appreciated his help.The silk cocoon auction house was very interesting. It is the second largest in Asia. I saw more cocoons there than I ever imagined.The toy factory was disappointing. It was small. The electric power was out, so I could not see anything being made. The workers pressured me to buy their toys.The crafts museum was better, but the docent (museum's guide, not Satish) had such a thick accent that I had difficulty understanding him.
