In the early morning at 6:15 am, your chauffeur will pick you up from your Bangalore hotel. Upon arrival in Mysore, meet and greet with your local guide. Mysore is known as the city of palaces. Visit the Mysore Royal Palace in the heart of the city. It is also known as Amba Vilas Palace and was the residence of Wodeyer Maharajah of Mysore. A fine example of Indo-Saracen style of architecture, the palace has been converted into a museum displaying souvenirs, paintings, royal costumes, and other items once possessed by the Wodeyars. After the visit with a fixed menu, lunch in a local restaurant. After lunch drive to Chamundeshwari Temple. It is at the top of the Chamundi Hills about eight miles from the palace city of Mysore. The temple has a seven-story tall gopura decorated with intricate carvings. The deity of the goddess said to be made of gold and the temple doors of silver. The temple was named after Chamundeshwari or Durga, the fierce form of Shakti, a protective deity held in awe by Mysore Maharajas centuries ago. After this visit go back to Mysore and don't forget to see the Mysore city view from Chamundi Hill. While on the way visit Philomena Church back to Bangalore. The Cathedral of St. Philomena on Ashoka Street Mysore is a Roman Catholic church and is the most imposing and attractive structure. After this visit you will be driven back to Bangalore.

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.

Guide très bon. Véhicule moyen. Trop de commerces

Le guide is excellent. Mais à l'instar de ses pairs, il a la désagréable habitude de nous conduire dans des boutiques pour touristes qui ne vendent rien d'intéressant, et à des prix prohibitifs. Une seule boutique est déjà lassant. Mais deux boutiques sont beaucoup trop. Par ailleurs, le véhicule est loin d'être assez confortable pour supporter 300 km de routes indiennes. Ceci étant, la visite de Mysore est absolute magnifique et vaut le déplacement.

Excellent

Very informative. Didn't like the shopping aspect of the tour as we were taken to a store that is quite expensive.
