We booked the Elements Tour with Royal Mysore Walks and ended up being the only ones on this walk, hence having a very personal tour of the city which included, as announced, an historical aspect, a tour of the main market and some food testing of the Mysore specialties. Vidya has an excellent guide and we learned a lot about... More

Best way to spend a couple hours in Mysore. East 2.5 hour walk around the Royal palace and bazaar. Tidbits of history about the city, it's British rule and even how it links back the the United states was wonderful. This group are truly professional and very well educated. This is a must!

I stayed 2 weeks with my friend ( a born and raised local). She booked the walking tour as a way to show off her town. It was an easy pace and distance. It was so informative that even my friend learned things she did not know about her hometown. The guide (Vidaya) was charming, fun and well prepared. I... More

I recently went on the Best of Mysore tour run by Vishwar (same tour as the folks who ranked the tour poor, below). I thought it was a fantastic experience, Vishwar was extremely knowledgeable and gave us an informative and fun tour. We walked through the city while Vishwar gave us a rundown of the rich history of Mysore as... More

See Mysore through the eyes of folk who are not there to fleece you but are more of "People like Us"... enthusiastic young people passionate about their city with charming little anecdotes, knowledge of quaint corners and places to not just keep you entertained but make your day with delight.

We greatly enjoyed the walking tour guided by Vidya from Royal Mysore walks. We walked in the centre of the city around main historical buildings and to the market. We saw this fantastic fruit et vegetable, flowers and other items market. It is one of the best clean markets we have visited so far. This is a must visit but... More

We found our guide Vidya to be very friendly and knowledgeable. Her English is excellent and she was full of good info on the city. We did the elements tour, which covered historical sites, the people of Mysore, the market and the delicious ees. We had samosas, dosas, lassis, Mysore coffees and badam shakes, all included in the cost. We... More

This was my 6th visit to Mysore. Every time we have guests visit, we take them to see the palace, etc. This past time, we decided to try something new by doing the Royal Mysore Elements Walk. All I can say is, I realllly wish we had known about this earlier and had taken previous guests on this adventure! IT... More

My wife and I spent half a day with Vidya on the Royal Mysore Walks tour, covering on foot the city's major sites and a great deal of its history. First, Vidya was warm, welcoming and happy to adapt the agenda in the few cases where we had our own focus. Second, she engaged us by asking us questions -... More
