      Great tour and the best guide
      Excellent tour and top notch tour guide (Sachinn). Got to see the main tourist spots of the city and learned a lot about the history of both Pune and India from our guide.

      Long drive but worthwhile
      The driver was right on time at the hotel and ready for a 3 hour drive. We picked up the guide at Mahabaleswar and had some breathtaking views and nice visits to the old temples. The guide then made his way to the local market allowing some shopping time. When I came back to the cab, the guide was gone and the driver brought me to an overrated strawberry farm/shop. Nothing really to see or do there but it being 2pm, I had a pizza for lunch. Driver then drove me back to the hotel. I did like the elements that we visited, but a cab without a single bottle of water for a six hour drive in total surprised me and the fact that the guide just disappeared was very weird.

      Visit tour in Pune on 25th of April 2024
      The tour with Sachinn Sugndhi. He shows me a lot of different places: temples, caves, market, museum, roads, old houses... He has a very good knowledge of each place and also gives comments about religion, rituals...He propose me to taste somme dishes and Indian tea. I easily recommend him for a visit in Pune

      An informative and enlightening tour
      Excellent tour by our very knowledgable guide Sachinn. Introduced us to the colorful history of Pune via temples and forts. Also to and through the very crowded markets which are do fascinating for people watching plus history. There was the opportunity to try different street food and I did cautiously both done food and a delicious all natural cooling drink. We successfully crossed busy streets which in itself was a major achievement. I strongly recommend this tour for those who are interested in the history of Pune and India and want to experience and get immersed into the craziness which I so enjoyed.

      Local temple and ashram itinerary
      I would not call it a walking tour as the concept goes but more like a temple and ashram itinerary. There were hardly any stories about the culture or the place or food. There was some soft peddling for the products. Interesting stories, food and photos make up for most of the best part of walking tours in India. This tour did not have any of these parts. It was more like booking a local guide at 10x the prices because you have booked it on TripAdvisor. Won't recommend if you have done walking tours elsewhere in India.

      Had a great excursion on this half day tour. Sachchinn was a wealth of information and I enjoyed the morning immensely. Well worth the effort.

      Remote part of the country.
      Great little trip to a remote part of the country. Long drive from Pune, 3 hours each way, so knowing that your expectations should be set. Beautiful part of the country, lots of trees, sacred temples and great views. Strawberry farms are neat as well.

      Best Real life tour of pune.
      This was one of the most informative tours I have been on. He was great with the knowledge of the areas we visited. Gave lots of details to each temple and site we visited. He took us to try local dishes and the local market. He helped to negotiate the prices that was already marked up where we wouldn't have done it. The food tours and tea was the highlight for me . We learned about the culture and the Indian people are so nice . I would recommend this tour to everyone if you visit pune. He keep us very attentive to his conversation we were never bored or was ready to go. He was on time waiting on us to go few minutes before time. It was not a exact time to be done he went over and didn't complain we keep him longer than expected. I will recommend to my colleagues that will visit in the future.

      Insightful Intro to Pune with a Great Guide
      Very insightful trip - guide had a lot of knowledge about the visited sites and the history of Pune and was even willing to extend the walking tour as festive parades were taking place on that day. Had great answers to every question and was super-nice and helpful (we even tried some of the local food together). Very recommended if you want to ge ta good first feeling of what the older parts of Pune are all about and how the city became what it is today.

      Outstanding and learning experience!
      This tour was amazing in all senses! All the culture, history, traditions were very well illustrated by my guide, Sachinn Sugndhi. He is very well informed and was able to explain all the history and meaning behind each place we visited in a very connecting and fluid way regardless the deep and complexity of the details. i learned a lot and took so many pictures. I strongly recommend this tour if you have the time. Now I want to learn more about this beautiful and rich culture and their way to see and understand the life. Thank you! Antonio (from Mexico)

      Fascinating insight into historical places and spiritual life of Pune .
      We were led on our tour by Sanchin who was an excellent guide. Very warm and friendly person who was very well informed . The places he took us to were fascinating and gave us a great insight into the history and culture of Pune. we cannot speak highly enough of Sanchinn and also our driver . We stopped midway for snacks and drinks and Sanchinn ensured we ate at good places. Sanchinn was also very flexible and was able to alter the tour to fit in with our time schedule as the tour took much longer than 4 hrs. We highly recommend this tour
