Excellent
We had a great walk with Prajwal! He showed us around, had some very interesting historical facts to share about Mysore, it gave us a chance to see and experiment the market and taste some of the best food from local vendors. We realized we could not have done the same (learning experimenting, finding these places) on our own. We are glad we took the tour and the guide was cheerful and helpful! M + J from Canada
We, a group of 10 people went to have a different day rather than our working days and this is the second time we are going for a team outing. Jaladhama just made our day with the water sports and games.
