We are planning to visit Mysore, Ooty, Kodaikanal in the last week of May'2014. We will start tour from Bangalore & will end at Chennai. We have planned like this: Day 1: Bangalore to Mysore by morning train, local sightseeing & night stay. Day 2: local sightseeing at Mysore, night stay. Day3: Mysore to Ooty & nightstay. Day 4 & 5: Local sightseeing at Ooty. Day6: ooty to Kodaikanal. Day 7 & 8 Kodaikanal sightseeing. Day 9 back to Chennai. I would like to know the below things:

1: Whether the tour plan is ok or not

2:What is the temperature level at that period of time & whether it will be a pleasant tour or not considering the temperature & other factors

3: As we have small kids & ladies in group, travel by road in bus will be difficult due to vomiting etc. Pls suggest train routes & routes where train service is not available whether Volvo service is available or not

4: Will it be cost effective if we hire a vehicle from Bangalore for total 8 days ( We have 5 persons in the group & 2 small kids under 2 yrs of age)

5: please suggest any better tour plan if we do not hire a vehicle for the entire 8 days, whether from Bangalore to ooty then to Mysore then to Kodaikanal is a better plan or not.

Will appreciate a reply from destination expert Mr. Prassanna
