Mysuru City Tours

Welcome To Mysuru

Mysuru gets its name from Mahishasura – a mythological demon (asura) king who is believed to have ruled this region. Mahisha means buffalo, and the king had the body of a man and the head of a buffalo. Mysuru is rich in history and culture with numerous stories laced around wars, royalty and colonisation.

Mysuru is known for its architecturally beautiful palace, traditional arts and crafts, silk weaving, yoga experiences, and authentic local food.

At Unventured, we have curated a few culturally immersive tours of Mysuru. Our local guides speak fluent English and take time to understand your interests to make your experience very interactive, safe, local, and truly authentic. We believe in showing every traveller the essence of the place and go beyond the Lonely Planet or Trip Advisor recommendations. This helps us offer some unique and experiential tours that give travellers a preview to our vibrant country and more specifically to Mysuru.

  • 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 an authentic look at Mysore than other tours. 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.

  • This tour was a real treat. Our guide, Sou, was not only a lovely and positive person, but had great knowledge of the city and was a professional from start to finish. The locations were well chosen, and included all kinds of interesting local food, drink, and visiting many different kinds of craftsmen. Good vibes all the way and we even ended up with some special gifts, but I’ll say no more so as not to ruin the surprise;) Thanks again for a great evening, Sou, if I had more time in Mysore I would definitely have looked into having another tour!

  • Me and my friends participated on Market tour organized by Unvetured. I can write an essay about how incredible it was. We saw places you just can’t find if you are not a local. We listened stories you can’t find even on Google. We tried a lot of local stuff and listened the stories behind it. We could ask any questions, talked about our lives, guides lives. Comparing our worlds. We just had one of the best days in my life, honestly. I wish to have guides and tours like that in every city I go. This is totally more than highly recommended.

  • Great experience! I totally enjoyed the guided bike ride through the Mysore countryside with the farm fields, canals, historic fort, summer palace, and temple. Shruthi was an excellent guide! She set a comfortable pace and was flexible to allow us to stop and ask questions whenever we wanted. Her English was very good and she provided just the right amount of commentary and information. The food breaks were well timed and good. I will definitely be looking at going on other bike trips with Unventured.
