      The tour was OK
      The guide just lacked a little enthusiasm. The Fort St. George Museum was a little tricky. First, the guide said we couldn’t go that day because some people were making a petition to the governor. Maybe, things changed later. We did go in and everything was OK.

      Education break from the busy city
      Excellent trip with a knowledgeable guide would recommend it as a relaxing way to leave the very busy city in an air conditioned car

      The best views of Chennai are a bit off the beaten path.
      This is a great tour. Highly recommended if you have a day in Chennai. You'll visit some of the most interesting and unique temples we've seen in India so far. Our guide, Rajesh, did a great job explaining the history and religion of the sites we visited. If you go there late December or early January be prepared to spend a bit more time in the car as traffic is worse than usual because of the pilgrims coming to some of the temples you'll visit. But, on the bright side, you'll have an incredible time getting to experience the ceremonies with the people all dressed in red and yellow.

      Amazing insight and incredible history
      Interesting tour of the 6th/7th century monuments of Mahabalipuram. Would have liked a bit more time to explore the beach and the beach rock temple as well as the shore temple. The lunch was delicious and Rajesh and Basha were both very nice and able to provide knowledgeable insights.

    This is a fun, well-organized tour, bringing you to all kinds of places in Sowcarpet serving authentic (street) food. Other than some other tours, this one really goes to some actual food stalls out on the street as well, so there is great variety! Friendly guide too, and the walk down Mint street is a great exercise in moving through Indian traffic should you not be accustomed to it yet. Make sure to come on the tour a bit hungry ;) Recommended!

    Amazing! The food was great, I was super full at the end of it. Our guide was informed about the food, the regions where they belong and the ingredients. We went to places that we would have definitely not have gone without him. I recommend it this tour a 100% , worth every penny.

    This was a five-star tour and is highly recommended for a western tourist to experience when visiting Chennai. The food was excellent and items were well chosen to represent diverse cultures in Chennai. There was even a real sketchy-looking pan puri, which my Indian wife had looked in horror and refused to taste. I consider it to be a very authentic experience and I would love to do it again. I have a couple of suggestions for the guide. It may be better to leave sweet stuff to later rather than very beginning. After having a lassy (excellent, by the way), I could not eat pretty much anything else and could only barely taste the food because I got too full from the lassi. Overall, I enjoyed the food and going to a fancier place the next day was not as much fun as experiencing the street food during the tour. Thank you so much for doing these tours.
