We stayed in Stephen's B&B in Januari 2015 and went on the early morning Mysore Heritage tour. Being a part of Indian traffic was a great and special experience in itself. Just follow Stephen and you'll be fine ;-) To avoid the worst he leaves early. Stephen is a great storyteller and know's a lot about the city and Indian... More

In august 2014 we visited Mysore and decided to do a cycling tour with MyCycle (Stephen Farrell) after friends of us were really enthusiastic about it. And they were right! We cycled for about 4 hours in and around the old town of Srirangapatnam and it was lovely. With the bike you come at places you would never see by... More

Blimey, I can't believe I'm so slow in responding to reviews. Sorry! It's our quiet period now so there are no more excuses! I hope you found the photos good via the Facebook and flickr sites.

My boyfriend and I did two bicycle tours with Stephen/MyCycle, the Srirangapatnam ride and the Mysore neighborhood ride, and although not cheap, we thought they were 100% worth every penny—in fact, getting Stephen’s take on all things related to Mysore’s history and present society/culture, as well as more personal things such as his career in corporate responsibility training and being...

hey, thank you for a great review and putting it under MYcycle. Most guests put their review under Mysore bed and breakfast so guests think we don't do much at Mycycle. It cannot be further from the truth.. as you know, in our busiest periods (winter) we do tours most days.. Nuanced? from Yorkshire, some friends might dispute that ;-)... More

We did the Srirangapatna cycle tour, some km from Mysore. Stephen was the perfect guide showing us around village life, rice paddies, historical landmarks such as forts and temples, all while sharing his vast knowledge of the places with us. This was by far one of the best activities we did on our trip to South India. Mysore is definitely... More

Agreeing with everyone else reviewing this tour, it is great and mostly because Stephen makes it great. The scenary is amazing and the tour, which took about four hours, is simply awesome.

The Srirangapatna cycle tour under Stephen is one the best things that I have ever done in my life so far. The tour started of at around 9 in the morning. Stephen took us around ganjam village, got us acquainted to the the culture and lifestyle of the people in that village. Later we were shown the historical site of... More

I must admit to being a little apprehensive when you first booked to come on the cycle tour. How could I possibly entertain and keep interested a group of young, articulate intelligent guys who were Indian and probably knew more than me about the history and culture?! I needn't have worried. not because you didn't know things... you did... but... More

We stayed at Stephen's guest house in December and participated to a cycle tour with all the other guests. We were different options and we picked the Srirangaptnam Island tour. And we loved it. We started the tour on the Island, and went through villages, farms, fields, factories, riverside and also visited a fort. It was amazing to see the... More

great way to see an area that I probably would not have chanced upon otherwise! Anant was an attentive and knowledgeable guide, group size was only small- 4 of us- so we could stop, take photos, ask questions as we wanted! Definitely a highlight of my stay in Mysore.

Really enjoyed the MyCycle bicycle tour of Srirangapatnam. My guide was knowledgeable, easy going and able to make the tour fit my needs. It was a lovely day away from the noise and traffic of Mysore.
