Detailed Ovrview

Mysore (now called Mysuru) is 140 kilometers from Bangalore and takes 2–3 hours to reach. Although the distance is not much, actual travel time may be higher on long weekends due to traffic. This erstwhile capital of the Kingdom of Mysore, or Karnataka, is a must-visit destination on a trip to Bangalore or South India.

This day trip is a perfect package tour if you want to visit Mysore and come back to Bangalore the same day. A little hectic trip, which is best done in a car and bus sightseeing day tour package, can become quite tiring. Booking is online and hassle-free.

We were picked up on time by the driver, who commendably arrived early. He took us to the listed sites which were spectacular. The highlight for us was the Mysore Palace a go-to destination for us ever since we have been travelling to south India.

My Mysore Sightseeing Day Tour from Bangalore was an incredible adventure. The journey itself was scenic, with lush countryside and charming villages along the way. In Mysore, the grandeur of the Mysore Palace was jaw-dropping. The intricate architecture and rich history were awe-inspiring. The Chamundi Hill visit provided breathtaking panoramic views of the city. The Brindavan Gardens with its musical fountain show was enchanting, and I couldn't help but be captivated by the vibrant flowers and serene atmosphere. Lastly, the St. Philomena's Church was a masterpiece of architecture. Overall, the day was packed with cultural and natural wonders, making it an unforgettable introduction to Mysore. I can't wait to return and explore more of this beautiful city.
