Amazing tour
A great way to become introduced to the city!Souharda, our guide, was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He provided the history of the area, which is always so helpful. We say a ton and he pointed out a couple additional spots based on our own interests. We will be heading back to the area today to buy some silk!

Experiencing Mysore's central markets

Well-conceived walking tour of Mysore City's central urban markets, blending sensory experiences where locals shop. Highlight was making of incense, and natural aromatic oils.

Most enjoyable tour I've ever had
Dec 2019 • Friends
This tour had everything we were hoping for. Our tour guide, Nishchal was super friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable. His genuineness along with guiding us through locals shops and their workings, gave us a more authentic look at Mysore than other tours would have. The numerous drinks and snacks on the way was also a great way to try the local foods and support their business. We were also taken to plenty of beautiful sites and given the history of their creation before we got to the Palace of Mysore making this tour very worthwhile.

Overall this tour was an amazing experience and we would recommend it to anyone who wanting to explore Mysore.

A Walk to Remember
A comprehensive presentation of the areas in and around the palace with historical facts and logical explanation. Souharda- Our Narrator was a super cool and loaded with knowledge. Overall event was neatly organised and the commitment of the company - Unventured, to get the event going even if there was only one booking is commendable.

Overall a must try for ppl who wants to experience the local Mysore and curiosity to know things about Mysore

Five USA ladies learned about the Markets in Mysore
Dec 2019 • Friends
This experience was truly unique! Nischal, our guide, took us on a walking tour of the markets and small businesses in Mysore. During the tour, he explained the history of Mysore from mythical origins to modern day culture and political leaders. We stopped at several small businesses and learned from the craftsmen about their product, business, and trade. We sampled foods and drinks indigenous to Mysore - all of whom are generations-owned businesses. We then toured the market of Mysore. We stopped in many stalls and interacted with the stall owners - learning about their craft, food and flower items. Nischal was a great guide and very patient with all of questions! He is passionate about Mysore and teaching others of its beautiful history. The walking tour was a fantastic way to learn about Indian shopping and culture.

Great tour!
Nov 2019 • Family
Fun, interesting and informative tour, our guide Nishchal was great, lots of interesting stories and facts about the city. We tried some local specialities, saw artisans at work and even came away with a gift to take home. There are shopping opportunities but you don't feel pressured to buy and drinks and snacks are included, even came away with a jasmine garland for my hair. My son and I loved the market, really vibrant and beautiful. Thanks Nishchal for a great experience.

Mysore through it's markets
Nov 2019
I highly recommend this tour. Walking through the market area stopping for sweets, soda, coffee, coconut and banana was fascinating. It was a great experience with the excellent Guide Mishchal's stories and historical details giving it an extra dimension.
