What people are saying about Bangalore

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!

Our guide was wonderful!

We did not realize it would be a 3.5-4 hour drive to Mysore from Bangalore. We thought we would spend more time touring. We have since learned there were many other things we could have visited along the journey. During our time in Mysore our guide was wonderful. We highly recommend this experience.

the palace was outstanding, an absolute must see if you are in India. Tour ended a early then expected however so not sure if we missed something. Tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
