It was a fun activity to do with our 7 year old who also rode along with us. It is a nice way to see the city of pondicherry instead of just driving to and fro places. The morning tour in the month of september was alright weather wise, but i can imagine that an evening tour would cover a lot of the hustle and bustle of the city, but with more traffic. We were a small group, so we went at a leisurely pace and also found that information provided was enough to get you started in understanding the place. Manisha and Lakshmi were gracious and warm.

Wonderful and insightful tour with a very warm hearted tour guide - Manisha. Cycled through beautiful historic landmarks of Pondicherry. Delicious breakfast, both Indian and French!

Manisha is the best. We came with 3 small kids and she thought us how to make samosa and cupcakes. The kids did almost everything. All the staff are so nice and welcoming.

-There was barely any historical information passed on -We were told that at each stop, there would be a reasonable pause for information and photography. Both of which were absent. -The knowledge of the tour guide wasn't up to the mark and we didn't learn anything new. -On the whole VERY DISAPPOINTING. wouldn't recommend.

Dear Mahalakshmi, We are sorry that you did not enjoy the ride. This was one of the best tour liked by almost 99% of the people who did this ride. If we stop everywhere for photos, then you will not be able to finish the ride in 2 hours.

Relaxed and packed with info! Manisha was a darling, taking care of the entire group as we cycled through little alleys and traversed all local quarters. She's happy to share all information she has to satiate your curiosity. From architecture and demographics, to little nuances about life in Pondicherry, the bicycle tour is a great way explore the Franco-Indian territory. The vintage cycles are done up so cutely, it's worth a picture and memory! I'd highly recommend reaching at least 15mins before time - helps them seamlessly execute the tour for you. They run two slots at the moment - one in the morning, other in the evening. Roughly 2-2.5 hrs. It's a breezy and relaxed pace, allowing you to take in the sights and sounds at leisure. Laxmi at SITA was equally helpful, providing details, schedules, and taking care of other nitty-gritties of breakfast. The meal I chose was traditional south-Indian, with a steaming cup of tea. Absolutely fresh and delightful, especially after our morning ride. You can always opt for the French breakfast as well (croissant with jam, butter and some juice at the side). Definitely recommend the tour.
