Mysuru in a Nutshell (Tuk-tuk or Drive Tour)
Live through a day in the life of a Mysorean by exploring the city of Mysuru through its rich traditions, myths, legends, and fun experiences. On the Mysuru in a Nutshell tour, you can choose to be driven in the comforts of a car or choose the local way of hopping on and off a tuk-tuk. Challenge yourself as you take a hike up Chamundi hills early in the morning, followed by an introductory session of yoga, and a scrumptious breakfast at an old-timer’s joint. Be ready to soak in all things Mysuru through a market walk, visit to an artisan’s street and not to forget the grand Amba Vilas Palace.

Who can do this tour?
This tour is for anyone who wants to explore the many hues of Mysuru and get a peek into its rich history, culture, and the local way of life. Your tour host will guide you through your day with quirky anecdotes, stories, and significant events in our history.
Physically, this tour is marked as a medium intensity tour since the climb up to the top of Chamundi hills can be intensive for persons with mobility issues, so alternatively, you can also drive up to the top of the hill if you choose a car option. Just be warned of a lot of people and bustling streets. What we do promise is a fun day with a bounty of diverse experiences.

Fantastic Tour with Great Guide!
Arun, our guide, was fantastic! He showed us stuff we would have never found on our own. He was tremendously informative, pleasant, and patient. Pace was great, and the food he turned us onto was really good. He did a great job bargaining for us for a purchase from the market. Prompt pickup. All interactions with the company in terms of set up and then getting photos afterward was smooth and efficient.
