Is it possible to hire a cab (Genuine one) from Mysore for one day sight seeing around mysore? What would be the tariff rates? If anybody knows a good travels? Do help me out..
You could enquire at the hotel desk where you will be staying. Fees vary- its very difficult to tell you a cost. We paid R600 for a taxi ( 9am-4pm) in Koltata last year.
If your hotel does not have a travel desk, walk into the busy market area, you will find taxi stands, where you need to bargain. The palace and brindavan gardens are must see, an Indica would charge you Rs400/ for 4 hours and 40 km and Rs700/ for 8 hours and 80km.
Travel's will charge you slightly higher than these taxi stands.
Thanks for ur reply...Iam not going to stay in mysore..iam planning for one day trip...If i can get any cabs from mysore station..it would be good for me...
You surely will get cabs at the station, you will need to bargain!
Typically from 9am to 6pm is around Rs900/ for a cab.
If you only have 1 day in Mysore and also want to take a taxi to a nearby attraction, I suggest Srirangapatnam. It's interesting and very near to Mysore.
