KSTDC Tour Packages

October 1, 2007 – 3:44 pm

One of the most carefree ways to see some of the most beautiful places in Karnataka is to go for the KSTDC tour packages. One can book for these guided tours in advance from the KSTDC offices or franchises. Also, you can book over the phone. Most of them are good weekend tours. I can tell from my experience that they are one of the best ways to bust your stress and monotony. KSTDC have a wide range of tours but many had been abandoned due to poor response. I know KSTDC and Karnataka tourism department is doing good promotion of tourism in the state but I feel they can increase volume from within the state also. Many people are new and may not know, some not sure what to do, some may be shortage of time etc. So some aggresive marketing strategy like visiting companies once in a week or setting up a desk in companies with the companies staff itself(they may sweeten this by offereing some discount), visting residential homes once in a while etc can do wonders for it. Here I will try to give a list of the operational KSTDC package tours:

    This information is very useful. I was confused about organising Mysore-Ooty trip for my parents and online reservation of KSTDC came very handy and convenient.
