We took the "New Bangalore Sight Seeing Tour" aka the Bangalore Full Day Tour (BFD). It was not a good experience.

The website also lists these... More

The overnight tour was well organised and my experience was a pleasant one. The tour departed on time, reached the destinations on time, the bus was clean and tidy, the air conditioning was comfortable. The staff were well informed and friendly and the while experience was a memorable one.

Given the bias several locals have against government-operated agencies and organizations, I was initially skeptical about what to expect when I signed up for the day trip from Bangalore to Shravanabelagola, Belur and Halebid.

There is a small fee to use your.. camera but that is just pennies!...The journey is rough as the roads are unmade so not idea for people with back problems,... More

I have been a great believer in the Government Tourism Corporations and have always taken oportunities to explore the conducted tour packages offered by them. Having had a pleasant experience with the earlier conducted tours with KSTDC, we booked for the One day sightseeing tour covering Srirangapatna & Mysore. The members included my parents, wife, kids (6 and 4 years)... More

This is a fantastic day trip organized by KSTDC. My wife and I took this in 2007 and it was a delightful experience. it covered a lot of places like Belur, Halebid and Shravanabelagola. The bus journey was comfortable and there was good enough time to visit each of the places.

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... More
