    Bangalore

    Pragyadagated's 3 days trip to Bangalore

    The best thing about the whole trip was ofcourse the place and our driver cum guide, Mr. Umesh. He made our trip wonderful and memorable. Keep the music and laughter continuously on for three days. The only downside was where our hotel was. It was 20 kms away from Medikeri, which made things a little cumbersome for us. All in all it was fun.

    Priyanka Pradhan

    Bangalore

    Priyanka's 5 days trip to Bangalore

    We booked a trip with Foxplore for Mysore Coorg from Bangalore. All the details of the trip were neatly coordinated. The hotel stay arranged for us was comfortable and accessible from the sightseeing points. Although the driver was not fully aware about the itinerary and created a bit of confusion, foxplore team handled it well and we had to make minimal communication throughout our tour. Sightseeing plan was well chalked out and did not tire us through the journey. Foxplore kept in touch with us via WhatsApp and calls to ensure full support during booking, post booking and travel. Foxplore executives, Shrishti and Gagan helped proactively in case of queries as much as they could. Overall a good experience in terms of tour planning and coordinations.

    Arrangements was proper made by tour agent (Murali). The driver Uday was driving safely and also took us to good restaurants and shopping markets. In all, everything was best, the tour service is worth to book. Mysore palace is amazing and botanical garden too. The coffee Plantation at Coorg is really nice, as u can get knowledge abt all spices. Ooty rose garden is really nice, worth to visit. From Madikeri u can buy banana fibre saari.
