It is a good tour if you are travelling solo or with friends... You pay for the bus trip and have to shell out for food and the entrance fee for the attractions along the way. I had my reservations about the trip - the bus, safety, timeliness, food... but overall I was happy with the tour and it is... More

Was researching on how to go Mysore on a one day trip from Bangalore. One of the options explored was getting a car and driver, but the cost ranges from INR 3000 to 8000. While googling other alternative, stumble across the Karnataka State Government Operated tour which costs only INR 750. The package was worth it and the guide will... More

The bus was clean, the AC was working and more importantly the staff including the tour guide is very friendly. The tour line up was good, however the time allocated for the zoo was insufficient . I think... More

We took the "New Bangalore Sight Seeing Tour" aka the Bangalore Full Day Tour (BFD). It was not a good experience. We booked the tour in person at the KSTDC office in Bangalore and were told the tour would run from 7:15am until 8:00pm and would cover 9 sites in and around Bangalore, plus lunch. 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. Boy, am I glad I went ! What an excellent service offered the the state tourism department! The registration process was fairly easy (the website has... More

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.
