    Nikita's 5 days trip to Mysore

    We had a great experience over all. A few issues with hotel like things were shutting fast and the conduct at coorg hotel was little mean. Rest was all okay. Hotel at Wayanad was great. Both hotels were clean. N the driver and car were good and comfortable. Nothing to complain there. It was a great
    trip right from the booking till the end. Thank you !!! There were many. But frequent visits to the market and drive through the fog and karaoke

    Sneha's 3 days trip to Mysore

    The trip to Coorg was amazing but due to heavy rain we couldn’t visit 3 places like tala kaveri mandalpatti & Elephant Dubbare. So felt that the money spent on the trip was not fully utilised for visiting the places. The hotel stay was good but the food wasn’t great.

    Suresh Rathod

    Suresh's 3 days trip to Mysore

    Tala cauvery couldn't be visited due to misinformation given by the driver that the road was closed. In the evening we came to know that the road was open and some traffic jam was there. The driver was unconcerned. There is no word 'Aap' in his hindi dictionary and liberally uses 'tum', tumare ko et
    c. The ride to Mandalpatty was the best part of the journey. The monsoon view of the surroundings and the play of the clouds, are worth the rickety drive uphill.
