We joined the Unventured walking tour covering the Mysore palace and the colourful Devaraja market. The guides spoke perfect English and were very knowledgeable and friendly.
We had been to both the palace and the market before but having a local explain the story and history behind the places was much more inspiring and very well worth it! We were shown to a few hidden spots we otherwise wouldn’t have found, such as the old soda shop and we also got to try some delicious local sweets at the market.
Can recommend anyone coming to Mysore to take a tour with Unventured.
