The best thing we did in Mysore! The elements tour with Vidya as our guide was the best way to experience the history (palace and Kings), the Mysore Devaraja market, and the traditional culinary delights of Mysore. Vidya was our friendly, very knowledgeable guide for the elements tour. My kids were awed by the Mysore Market. They had never seen... More

Book it! But if you want to know why read below. We did the Elements Tour and it was such great mix of history, local life and food. Our tour guide Vidya was friendly and informative. The tour is very well thought-out; it was the perfect pace and just the right amount of time to walk around. I loved all... More

Most foreigners to Mysore come to do the yoga-thing (massive generalisation) and this includes myself. With much free time to spare and as a stickler for culture and history I wanted to get to know the city a little better as well. Royal Mysore Walks ranked highly on Trip Advisor so I gave it a go. It was my first... More

Our guide was first class and he spent time answering all our questions. The tour was first class. Later the same day with did the walking tour through the... More

We went on the Royal Mysore Walk with Vidya and enjoyed every second of it. The walk included stories about the history of Mysore and how some seemingly unrelated events in history were actually related! Mysore has a colourful history and luckily for us, we had a nice opportunity to learn a bit about it. A highly recommended activity! Thanks... More

A little context before I go into the review: For my girl friend and I this was our first time in a city in India and for us novice travelers it was intense! We initially saw many of the popular sites such as Mysore Palace, Chamundi Hill, Brindaven Gardens, and Mysore's market but after this whirl wind of sight seeing... More

We went on the Elements Tour with Vidya and the cycling Vintage Mysore Tour with Ananth on the following morning, and were lucky enough to be the only two people being shown around. Both guides were very helpful and knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. This is a very good way of learning about the city and finding your... More

We booked the 'Elements' tour at short nice and it was great; very interesting, well paced and a good variety of delicious street food (more than enough for dinner!).

I had a great time with Ananth and a lovely couple for the Best of Mysore Walk. It was great timing (morning) so it was not too hot walking around, and Ananth was a great guide, well prepared, personable and provided many tidbits that the general visitor/foreigner to Mysore would not know. Going to the market with him was wonderful... More

it was lovely to be shown round Mysore in such a friendly and informative way. We would never have seen half as much if we had been on our own. A great way to get an overall impression of the city, it's customs and history and to see modern life! Best of all was the fantastic market.
