The trip out to Mysore was great. Plenty to see along the way. Our driver was very gracious and pointed out many interesting things along the way. My wife even saw monkeys along the trip resting in trees. The old fort, river area, summer home were fun and fascinating. The Mysore palace was great. We were lucky enough to see it later all lit up. Our guide also fit in a trip up to the granite bull temple above Mysore. All in all a great way to see the areas around Karnataka. Thanks!!!
A great trip, good communications prior to the trip, the driver arrived at our hotel nice and early. Took us to Mysore where we picked up the guide who was a local man and knew everywhere, every shortcut and loads of people. Lunch was great. The company called us personally part way through the day to make sure we were OK and were enjoying the trip. Really good service.
We were taken on the trip in a spacious and new car, which made it a comfortable ride in the 4-hour one-way journey. Both the driver and guide were professional, friendly and made us feel very welcomed. Halfway in the trip, the company even called us to check that all was going well. The 2 places we visited were beautiful for their socio-historical cultural sites being on this tour took care of the logistics, leaving us to enjoy the sights.
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.
excellent guide I had and made me feel the history of the place.He was so neat in telling me in details about this place.

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.
