What I liked best about this tour was that it felt like it was custom made for us. We could ask any question, dig deeper into any historical fact and there were lots of interesting stories shared. And the eateries were chosen brilliantly; we would never have found them on our own. Highly recommended if you don't want a run-of-the-mill experience. Pruthvi (our guide and now friend) was fantastic!

Really enjoyed a fantastic tour with our tour guide Pruthvi. The tour started with the history and took in some great sights, including the palace, before moving to the market and beginning the food part of the tour. The history part was really well put together, not too much so that you’re overloaded, but enough to add colour the the places you’re looking at. Pruthvi was excellent at adding in little personal stories along the way which elevated it from good to very good. The food was excellent, a mix of the best street food Mysore has to offer. Never rushed, we are at our own pace and loved every bite from the different stops. The best review I can give is that when we return to Mysore, Pruthvi and Gully tours will be the first people we call.

Review of: The Palace Story
Siya, our wonderful local guide, really brought this incredible palace to life with fascinating stories, historical context and a wealth of knowledge. She was able to answer all of our questions, took some excellent photos of us and gave us good advice for places to visit in the city during the Covid pandemic. Would strongly recommend!

I took two tours with Gully Tours in Mysore and they were both excellent! I did the Best of Mysore tour with Rahul which was the perfect intro to the city. Rahul was so passionate and knowledgeable. It would be impossible not to love Mysore after this tour! We learnt about the history of the city and the incredible palace before delving into the heart of the city and visiting its amazing market. This was a real highlight as it might be harder to visit by yourself. The tour then switch to food and we sampled some of the best local specialities. What a fun and tasty way to discover a destination! The next day I did the palace tour with Siya who was also an excellent guide. She knew how to navigate the crowds and had wonderful insight into the stunning palace and its history! Thank you Gully Tours for showing me Mysore!
