Heritage Cycling Tour by Darshan - 3 hours

Tour the many roads and attractions of Mysore on a cycle.

About the Experience

Darshan

Namaste, my name is Darshan and I am an engineering graduate with an interest in art and history. I have been living in Mysore from 2011 and have been an active guide at Couchsurfers ever since. I started my own tours in 2016 and have taken guests through the nooks and crannies of my city. My name 'Darshan' itself means sightseeing and there isn't a better way to describe my tours. Come, join me and experience Mysore through its narrow lanes. I speak English, Hindi and a little French.
