Company did a great job booking, and a great job in the field. Everything went according to plan.
I had a driver take me between locations (same driver each day, even though my trip was broken up with non-vacation days), and a guide specialized for each temple and the day seeing silk farming, manufacture, and auction. The guides were generally pretty good, but about half felt a bit hurried; the other half felt like I was being toured around with an old friend, which is my preference. The visit to see silk farming, manufacture, and auction was especially interesting because it was India's Republic Day, so many things were closed -- but the guide was still able to find great things to see including an operating factory (to convert silk worm cocoons into silk thread), the market (which wasn't doing an auction that day) and a nearby farm where they feed and raise the silk worms into cocoons. Guides at temples were good.
Watching the people taking pictures of themselves and the people participating in rituals at Chamundeshwari Temple was very interesting. All of the temples were interesting in their own right, especially seeing the architectural and design differences between temples.
Silkworm farming and silk production was interesting, even though I had seen pieces of farming and production elsewhere in my travels, this was all nearby and tangible.
Very good service and amenities at Orange County resort.
Mysore Palace is straight out of a storybook, and I saw that after seeing literally hundreds of palaces and castles all over Europe.
Less driving, which consumed too many valuable vacation hours.
