Nsundaresan's 5 days trip to KarnatakaThe hotel booked in Murudeshwar and Mangalore was not upto the mark. Places that were mentioned to be visited were not completely covered. Could have been a better one.
Chiragksarvaiya's 6 days trip to KarnatakaThe only problem we faced was a proper plan should have been arranged from the travel agent side and not left on us to decide which places should be seen when. Due to this lacking of coordination between driver and Syed we were not able to see Bandipur National Park or Mudumalai National park, we were in the impressions that we would get a chance to see any one of the place, overall good experience, good hotel @ Mysore, and Ooty was average and good resort at Coorg. Driver Inayat was not that decent, sometimes he even drove rash, we clearly told him that we had a kid with us but he didnt listen to that and drove as per his convenience. He was not cleaning the cab on daily basis, we had to remind him for that.
