It can be difficult to appreciate Mysore’s rich cultural heritage on limited time. Tick off the city’s highlights on a walking tour that includes historic buildings, bustling markets, and top dining spots, with dinner included in the price. Enjoy an intimate perspective of the city as you explore by foot, and forget the guidebook with insights provided by your local guide.

What to Expect
If there is just one tour that you have to pick while in Mysore, this would be the one!!

Join us on our most popular tour, a combination of our Royal Walk + Food Tour, the Best of Mysore tour. Experience the best the city has to offer. You start the tour at 5pm with the Royal Walk and continue the food tour right after.

Royal Walk

Join us on a guided tour in the heart of the city, as we walk by some grand old structures and unfold the story of Mysore. Learn about the opulent lives of the Maharajas and how one of the richest men on the planet lived. Explore a century old market and immerse yourself in the vibrancy and colours.

Food Tour

Mysore Pak, Mysore Masala Dosa, Mysore Churumuri the list goes on with gastronomical delights from the city. If you are a foodie then Mysore spoils you with its wide variety options. Now who doesn’t enjoy some good food especially when there is so much out there to choose from. And mind you, we take all matters related to food quite seriously!!

We viewed the palace from outside the gates and heard about its history. However, we did not enter the palace on this tour.
