About
Chennai, formerly known as Madras, was the capital of the Southern British India. Many great monuments were built during the British rule and several of them continue to dominate the skyline of Chennai even today. In this walking tour, we will visit some of the prominent landmarks of Chennai, which were built during the British era in an architectural style blending British as well as Indian elements. We will start at the Central Railway Station and walk to Ripon Building, Southern Railway Headquarters, Victory Memorial, Fort St George, Naper Bridge and finish at Madras University building.

Great sights in Chennai
We arranged a private tour with a car through 5senses which picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. Kalpana was our guide and she met us on time. We enjoyed seeing the architecture and information about each one. The first stop does involve walking without shade and even in the morning it did get quite warm. She took us inside the train station which we also enjoyed seeing.

We then went to fort st George and spent some time there seeing the museum and church. We then stopped off at the university to see the senate building (I think it’s called that) which pretty impressive to see. Finally we stopped for some refreshments and then headed to our hotel

Kalpana took pictures throughout for us at each building and extremely pleasant during our tour. We look forward to receiving those photos from her.

We would certainly book again through them based on this experience!

A good walk around Chennai with a wonderful guide
May 2018 • Business
I had a wonderful walking tour around the colonial buildings of Chennai. My guide Vijay was a real sport. It was terribly hot and humid the morning of our tour, but he was cheerful and accommodating throughout, staying longer in places I was more interested in.

The best part was that 5 Senses did not cancel the walk although the 2 other people who were supposed to join did not turn up. So I had a private/solo tour and it was absolutely lovely to go at my own pace. Vijay narrated important dates and histories behind the buildings and about the area we were in. It was fun to walk past the 'zero' point of Chennai! The walking tour was a great way to take in the scenes of city. Highly recommend it, but would suggest doing it when the weather is more pleasant.
