Dhavan's 6 days trip to MysoreThe places are good but the itinerary given from the travel agent was very wrong and due to which we have to face problems.
Chandaneneha's 5 days trip to MysoreArrangements 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.

Vyshnavi's 3 days trip to MysoreHello Team, 1. So when we have reached there we had to wait for 20mins for driver to receive us. 2. Then 40mins to know the status of hotel booking and in that process we could not go and visit few places in the list. 3. Hotel accommodation provided in coorg isn't good. How can one provide accommodation in front of reception ? We were expecting a 3 star hotel. Other than these everything else went fine. Thanks, Vyshnavi Digala 1. Mandalpatti roadtrip was terrific. 2. Mysore Palace.
