Tour from Bangalore was a mesmerizing adventure. Exploring the intricately carved Lepakshi temple was a journey back in time, while Gandikota's grand canyon left me in awe of nature's wonders. The underground marvels of Belum Caves were a unique experience. The tour was well-planned, and our driver was informative. It's a captivating journey that beautifully combines history, nature, and adventure, making it a must-try for those seeking an enriching two-day escape from Bangalore.
