It is a day tour to Belur Halebidu Shravanabelagola. The bus is an AC Deluxe bus, very comfortable, polite driver and cleaner. The kstdc hotels that they have stopped for breakfast and lunch are very good and affordable. But, all this good experience had been overridden by our return journey. We finished our Halebdidu visit and started back to bangalore... More

The guide, Raghu was very knowledgeable and friendly. We visited a number of temples and palaces. He explained what was acceptable,... More

Good Service for people wanted to finish sight seeing in one day. But visit to crowded places (2 temples on itenary) is just from outside. Comfortable bus, good guide, good place to eat, good time spent in Mysore palace & tipu memorials. But i did not like the trip since the company/guide does not have a tie up that allows... More
