Yes I enjoyed seeing the Palace, but the tour was my favorite part of my trip. It's great actually hearing the history, culture and other context behind the sights. And to have the chance to ask questions about whatever you see. The guide was knowledgeable and easy to connect with. They were also able to organize a tour last minute.... More

The Mysore tour was one of the highlights during our stay. Our guide spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend one that goes to see the Markets, you can not miss the markets in Mysore!!!

I had around 24 hrs to spend in Mysore and thought it would be a good idea to go on a heritage tour by Royal Mysore Walks. Ananth, a very cheerful and interesting person took me on mine. He enlightened me on how various important world events are connected to Mysore, and little known aspects of Mysore's history that includes... More

that we had with Vinay from Royal Mysore Walks. We started at Wellington Lodge with some history stories (which brought together the Duke of Wellington, Tipu Sultan and Napoleon) and then headed to the famous Devaraja market. On the way we stopped at a streetside temple, to assist a puja ritual. Devaraja is surely one of the loveliest markets one... More

Such an excellent experience! Vinay met me on my first afternoon in Mysore and we visited several important cultural and historical sights while telling the story of the local history, the arrival of the English and the death of Tipu Sultan. Standing on the battlements of the fortress at Seringapatam in the glow of the late afternoon sun, one could... More

Wonderful way to look at some history of Mysore with Vidya, who lead the tour comprehensively. Tour was very interesting and informative. Vidya was very enthusiastic and vivacious, leading the tour gently without making any hurry though in the prime time of the city, especially while explaining about the market and its speciality. I loved the tour utmost and moreover... More

Having read the rave reviews of Royal Mysore Tours on TripAdvisor, we went in with sky high expectations. Luckily we were not disappointed. Our tour guide was Vidya and our tour was the Elements Tour (combination of history + Mysore market + food tour). The entire tour was run very professionally and moreover Vidya our tour guide was fantastic. Not... More

We took the Royal Mysore walks cycling tour. Both of us being biking enthusiasts, cycling tour was our first choice. But we liked some bits of the walking tour and wanted it included in our cycling tour. They understood what we wanted and customized a fabulous tour for us! Biking in the early hours on Mysore's empty streets, feeling the... More

I did the Royal Mysore 2 hr walking tour which I thought was absolutely fantastic. No endless boring dates or hard to follow commentary. The team have worked hard to create a 'human-interest' history tour which includes interesting side stories and trivia. My guide (who spoke perfect english) even had laminated pictures to compliment his explanations. I got so much... More

Vidya is much more than a guide. She is a fabulous storyteller! She understands what we are interested in. She is deeply proud of the culture and history of Mysore and transmits it with enthousiasm. We had a great time on our walking tour in Mysore. Great local breakfast. Thanks again. Odette (Paris) and Muriel (Montreal)
