    Ankita Raut

    Mumbai

    Ankita's 6 days trip to Bangalore

    The overall trip experience was good. Everything went as per plan. But as a first time visitor I have a few suggestions that can be looked into. 1. It would be great if you can include timings to visit places in itinerary. We missed a few places just because they were closed when we went there. Like temple in mysore - we went there at 1 and we couldn't visit it as we did not know that temple remains closed from 12 noon to 4 pm. We couldn't wait also as we had many other places to visit. We couldn't visit dubare elephant camp in coorg due to same reason. 2.Also it would be great if as a travel planner you could suggest the nearest airport or railway station so that people can consider it while booking tickets. Like in my case I did not know that Coimbatore is the nearest airport from ooty. I booked return tickets from Banglore Airport which is 300kms away from ooty and ended up traveling almost for whole day. 3. This is something specific to hotels booked in mysore n ooty. The hotel given in mysore was good but it was away from market area in industrial area. It would be good if you can provide review of these kind to customers so that we can think of changing the hotel or telling you to book something near the market area as per our convenience. Also the berry hill resort in ooty was on top of a hill where the roads were in bad condition , the care taker could not speak/understand hindi, lights were not working, door bell connections were not there. Badly maintained resort it is! The only positive point about it is the location. So before suggesting it to someone else please give a thought on it. All the places are beautiful and well maintained. In mysore the mysore palace and Vrindavan garden is wonderful. In coorg the tebatian monetary is amazing to visit. Ooty is such a scenic place that u can't take your eye off. Everything you see is beautiful. Especially doddabetta peak and pykara boat house i liked the most
