    Amazing tour and you must book this one! Local guide and he me for a traditional breakfast of rice cake, lentil donut with amazing dipping sauces. Putti and medu vada I think are the traditional names. Next we went to the Mysore Palace and a local guide took over. Saw the delights of the royal palace and the amazing architecture and materials used. Next to the silk worm factory (other destination had Muslim protests so we had to avoid) where we had a tour of how the silk is extracted and spun into glorious fabrics. Very noisy and busy and amazing to see. Next stop a traditional lunch on banana leaf. I copied my guide to eat the local way. Food was incredible and not something I would have tasted without a local person taking me there. My guide chatted throughout the journey about the history of India and the areas, different cultures (additional to the main tour description). Although the tour was more expensive than others in India it is worth every penny! 10/10!

Seeing the Taj Mahal in Agra for just one day from Bangalore is a very, very long journey. 18h travel and 3h on site. Recommend to invest 2 days for it. But it was still worth it!
