We four friends would like to visit Odisha in October first week (Durga Puja Days).
Kindly see the tentative plan.
Day 1 : Reach Bhubaneshwar by flight at 6.30 evening. Transfer to Hotel in Bhubaneshwar
Day 2: Take the conducted sightseeing tour of OTDC (Tour No 2 from Bhubaneshwar in OTDC website - Pipli-Konark-Puri). Instead of returning to Bhubaneswar, we stay back at Hotel in Puri at night for and spending time at Puri beach.
Day 3: Take OTDC Conducted Tour from Puri (Tour No 2 from Puri Panthabhavan - Chilka Satapada trip 6.30 am to 7 pm).
Leave for Bhubaneshwar at night itself via bus. Back to the hotel in Bhubaneshwar.
Day 4: Taking Tour No 5 of OTDC Conducted Tour (Bhubaneshwar-Ratnagiri-Udaygiri-Lalitgiri, 8.00 am to 6.30 pm, Rs 700 per head in their website).
Day 5: Sightseeing in and around Bhubaneshwar.
Day 6: Leave for Airport at 8.00 pm morning
a) If we need to make changes in the package)
b) If we have to completely change the plan?
c) Whether it would be better if our four member group get some other mode of transportation like taxi or any other travel package other than OTDC?
(We thought of daily trips by OTDC conducted tours, just due to the fact that it may have a guide along with the package and may cover the sights in time bound manner)
d) Oct 2 and 3 are Mahanavami, Vijayadashami days. Does it make in difficulties in the trip like too much rush etc?
e) Kindly provide alternative suggestions if the above plan needs revamped.
