The Nandi Hills & Lepakshi Day Tour from Bangalore was an absolute delight for me. Watching the sunrise atop Nandi Hills was a surreal experience, and the lush greenery was a welcome escape from the city. Lepakshi's Veerabhadra Temple was a marvel of architecture and history, and I was captivated by its intricate details. The tour was well-organized, with a comfortable ride and an informative guide. It's a fantastic way to explore nature and culture in a single day, and I highly recommend it to fellow travelers.

Nandi Hills was ok for me it only for the view from the top and best for Sunrise and Sunset timing. In the day time just the view nothing else. Lepakshi Temple is good I liked the place. And coming up to the cab and services provided my Trodly and Just Call cab I really recommend them for my future trip as well as others. Very nice and polite driver Mohanraj and very friendly nature. We enjoyed the trip. Experience rating based on the place, not the service provider.
