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!
I had a half day after business meetings and prior to my flight departing Bangalore airport. My driver arrived on time and then we met with the guide soon after. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. I have been to Bangalore previously and appreciated the flexibility on our destinations and the amount of time spent at various sights.
Friendly and helpful guide and driver. Places visited all very interesting. I asked for a stop in a market and was able to see Gandhi Bazaar with fruits, flowers etc (probably worth the KR market). Typical Indian lunch. I recommend without hesitation!
The city tour is interesting, the parks are beautiful, but it is better to leave early in the morning if you have a hotel outside the city! The traffic is intense but this allows you to chat with the guide and the driver!
Guide was very knowledgeable about local sites and customs. Excellent driver
