I am living in Bangalore for sometime. I wanted to visit close by places at first. So I along with some colleagues planned to visit Mysore by KSTDC's (Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation) one day tour on "Mysore Sight Seeing"!
We went to Badami House (near city corporation office) to buy tickets on Saturday. KSTDC operates the tour everyday, but we were late to buy tickets and we get seats at the back! You can get the tickets early. KSTDC has online ticket facility also.
Timings 6.30 AM to 11.00 PM
Fare: Rs 750 (Volvo AC), The tour fair doesn't include and food or entry fees.
Places covered in the tour:
Channapatna (Toys factory showroom visit)
Daria Daulat Bagh, Gumbaz, Fort
Sri. Ranganatha Swamy Temple
St. Philomena's Church, Mysore
Shopping at Mysore Silk Shops
Chamundi Temple, Mysore
Zoological Garden of Mysore was also included in the tour, but all of the members in the bus agreed not to visit that place, rather wanted to visit Brindavan Gardens with more time in hand.
The bus provided was very good and the driver was driving very safely. The guide was very friendly, but his pronunciation was sometimes very hard to follow.
Actually, when i asked some other friends, no body suggested to visit by any travel agency, but we found this trip very nice. The service provided by KSTDC was excellent.
