I am working on a project with a friend, to introduce keenly interested travellers to the past and present of Hoysala Kings and the dynasty. The idea is to take people on a guided tour to lesser known monuments in and around Belur and Halebeedu, not just limiting to those two well known places but to many more hidden but equally beautiful architectural wonders. The participants will get to know about how the kingdom evolved and flourished as they visit each of this location, and will hear stories, legends and historical facts related to the kingdom.
While trying to get travellers interested in history and help people know lesser known details of the kingdom, we are also trying to help people travel in some comfort, trying to accommodate participants in mid to lower mid-range home stays or resorts. We would like to get people of all travel-preferences to be able to come on the tour, while ensuring that the budget doesn’t go over the roof. I was wondering what is an ideal budget for a weekend trip. Typically the following elements would define the tour: Duration – 2 days and 1 night, leaving on Saturday morning from Bangalore and returning on Sunday night; Stay – mid-range to lower mid-range homestays or resort; Journey – Qualis or A/C tempo traveller for 6-10 people(nearly 600km round trip); Guided tour with extensive information and interesting stories covering 6 to 8 places in and around Belur and Halebeedu including those two. Even visits to Belur and Halebeedu will involve getting to know much more than what the ASI guides can tell you.
Please participate in the poll and let us know your price preference. It will help us plan the tour better. It would be great to hear your comments and feedback too. Thank you.
The poll is now closed. Thank you for your participation and interest evinced. You will hear more details in next two weeks. Thanks.
