The marina beach walk is a fun walk in Chennai where we start at the beach. Our guide kannan was outstanding and helped us understand the history and culture of Chennai and Tamil people. Over 3 hours we discussed and experienced various customs in temples , statues on the beach with a history and met interesting people. This is probably the best way to learn about the people of Chennai and appreciate the amazingly rich cultural heritage of this part of India. I would suggest this to anyone coming to Chennai as a good way to get your bearings in Chennai!

Today's tour, though different from advertised, went beyond expectation. Our guide, Dhana was so personable and willing to share about life in India and the Hindu religion. Our group was four women and the learning we did about women was a true bonus. Dhana took into consideration other things we will do in Chennai and we'll adapted our tour to augment those things and made for a wonderful experience.

This was a wonderful tour. Kannan, my guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. He learned this was my first time to Chennai and I hadn't had a chance to explore anything yet, so he went above and beyond, adding a few additional stops. I was able to see and experience so much. I really enjoyed learning about the history, culture, and people of the city.

I highly recommend this to anyone.

not worth visiting it at all.. unless you have never seen a beach. super local, thousands of local people roaming around.. its dirty, hot and nothing to do. As foreigners not worth the time. you can can not lay there and relax on your swimming suit, nothing to eat, suitable for foreigners.

Hello. This is a review of the Marina beach in general and not for our walking tour as you have not taken the tour with us. Kindly post this under the generic marina beach attraction. This listing is specifically for review of our 3 hour guided walking tour of the Marina and surrounding monuments which we do. So request please remove this review from here and post it under the general Marina beach attraction you will see in TripAdvisor. Thank you for your understanding.

This walk starts at the light House on Marina and then proceeds to the main beach. It's a lovely heritage walk. Kannan is an amazing guide and he told us so much about the history and culture of Chennai. We visited a beautiful Temple and kannan told us all about the rituals and customs. This is a great way to discover the real India. I would strongly recommend.

This was a memorable walk in Chennai. we learnt so much about the culture and people of Chennai from our guide. The festivities in the beach were very welcoming and we enjoyed the colours and vibart sights. we also visited an ancient temple and watched the devotees with curiosity! Our guide patiently explained the significance of the prayers and it all made perfect sense. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Chennai.

The guide Kannan started by asking what I had already seen in Chennai and whether I had any other tours booked. He was then able to make a personalised tour, to make the most of my limited time in the city. That is very impressive customer service. I got so much out of it that I would like to return to Chennai, and indeed India, for a longer time. His passion for the history and the culture and knowledge of two religions really added depth to the tour. I would only have enjoyed it more if the tour had been all day.
