One of the few must visit places at Port Blair. Need to take a ferry to go across to the Island, which was originally a British garrison, captured by the Japanese during WW2. It is a lovely place to explore nature (in the form of very old trees and also deer peacock etc), as well as history- latter reflected in the ruins of the garrison and its church etc. The best part of the visit could be the lighthouse and the statue of the unknown soldier at the far end of the island. While motorized buggy is the popular mode to a conducted tour around the island, I would strongly recommend walking down from the marina to the lighthouse. Wear a hat since the sun is strong.

I and my Brother undertook a self planned, three day trip to Andamans covering Port Blair, Ross Island and Baratang Island in Dec 21.
Mr. Gopal from Sadai Tours and Travels played a very important part in making the trip a success. From the time we contacted him, until we returned home, it was Mr. Gopal all the way guiding us, arranging things and taking care of us wonderfully.
He picked us up from the Airport, made ferry arrangement to Ross Island (despite us informing him last minute), offered backup arrangements for our stay and activities at Havelock. Also, our day tour to Baratang (along with related permits) was fully organised by him at a single day's notice.
I am extremely thankful to Mr. Gopal who made sure that we enjoy our stay in Andamans thoroughly and leave all the tense part of planning and execution to him.
I take pleasure in recommending his services to any one visiting Andamans, for I am sure he will be of help to them as he has been to me.
Call or text him on : +91-9933202151

Must visit place in Port Blair.Its a beautiful island with British Ruins...but the ferry guy allows us for an hour which is too less to explore this island..it has numerous insta pic worthy buildings n spots..When we decided to visit Andaman, we thought to go through some travel agent. But then the itenery didn’t suit us and we decided to go on our own.
That’s when we noticed some review about Mr. Gopal on trip advisor.

From the time we contacted him, until we returned home, it was Mr. Gopal all the way guiding us, arranging things and taking care of us wonderfully.
He took care of everything from Airport pick-up and drop, ferry tickets to and from havelock island, boat arrangements to Ross Island and Elephanta beach, tickets for cellular jail etc. We never had to stand in a queue anywhere except for the mandatory covid test for children while going to Baratang mangroves and lime caves.

Looks can deceive, here is Mr. Gopal who looks very simple, but is extremely friendly, adjusting, accommodative and just makes us to focus only on enjoying the trip and leave everything else to him.

Kudos to him., our Andaman trip was thoroughly enjoyable. It will be undoubtedly Mr. Gopal ( 095319 18600 ) whenever we decide to visit Andaman again.

Historical Capital of Andaman. It's in ruins now with Deers, Peacocks and Rabbits. Boats leave from Rajiv gandhi sports complex area- it's short-20min ride. There's a ticket of 30/- pp that is not covered in boat-fare. Battery-based buggy guides charge 80/- per person and take you around for 1hour ride.. however beware that each-buggy is re-circulated- one buggy will take you Up at top-most point & will bring down another group. Without a buggy- it's an uphill walk that could take much more time. Once you reach top-most point- there's a staircase path to go-other side of hill towards light-house, picture point. Breezy area. climbing back the stairs to top-is a 'task' as buggy back will meet you at that point only !! No other water-activity there. It's a beautiful picture point amongst Nature's best.

Did a day trip to Ross Island as light and sound show was not happening at the time I visited. Lot of deer and peacock can be seen along with the ruins of administrative building of British time. You can also see the Light House.

Although I couldn't spend much time here, I loved my visit to Port Blair. My short stay was worth it as I got the best recommendations. I owe my experience to Gopal bhaiya who runs his own small travel agency (Sadai Tours and Travels). He knows everything about the islands: where you should visit, what's a good place to eat at, where to stay, and how best to fill your day! His enthusiasm kept me on my feet. If you're looking for a good, eventful, budget-friendly trip with the best informal guide, Gopal bhaiya is the man.

He also helps you book your ferry tickets, stay, visitors tickets, two-wheeler renting, etc. Just leave your trip in his hands and you won't have a thing to worry about. He's polite, happy, hard-working, and very very helpful. Best travel agent ever for a custom-made trip.

Call him as soon as you land in PB, and he's there to take care of you. Call him on +91 9531918600 or +91 9933202151.
