    I am from Bangalore and have three days off in which I would like to go to Ooty with my wife and kids. There are some places we would like to go to and things we would like to do.
    Before making any final bookings, I am interested in finding out about some 3 days package tours from Bangalore to Ooty.

    I would like to find out what the packages offer, and whether a package would be suitable and cheaper or a trip where I would plan things myself.

    Hello, @Nikey, welcome to the forum!

    Bangalore-Ooty-tour-package.

    Overview

    Ooty, also known as Udagamandalam, is perhaps Tamil Nadu's most popular hill station. With its tea estates, various picturesque lakes and beautiful gardens, Ooty has long been a favourite amongst locals and foreigners as a summer getaway. Even honeymoon couples find some solace and serenity during the cold winter months in Ooty. Because of its popularity, many tour agencies and companies provide for tour packages from different cities in India to Ooty. Such tour packages are all-inclusive, meaning you get everything from transfer, to accommodation and to sightseeing already. Whether they can save you some money in the end, is a question only you can answer, since budget varies from person to person. However, if you want a hassle-free and relaxing vacation, tour packages can provide you such features since the planning and execution of the tour would all be handled by the agency itself.
