Great tour guide, very friendly and knowledgeable highly recommended.
I highly recommend this neighborhood walking tour with Divya, a terrific host, kind and enthusiastic that introduces you to India from the back door. I'm not tours fan, I always prefer do it by myself but Chennai is a bit chaotic and I hadn't too much time. This tour is not about history or architecture, this is about people, rituals, believes and traditions that doesn't appear in your guide, the true heart of India. I enjoyed a wonderful time that it finished with a delicious traditional South Indian breakfast in the Hotel Saravana Bhavan, a famous Chennai's vegetarian chain, now extended over the world, where I wanted to go anyway, just perfect.
After confirming the tour a week in advance, I was disappointed that the driver was not at the hotel to pick us up at 9 a.m., the pre-arranged meeting time. The hotel was wonderful and called the number that had been provided, only to find out that the number belonged to someone in New Delhi. That person gave the hotel another number to call that was based in Chennai, and contacted them to inform them that we were waiting on our driver. The driver then showed up an hour after the initially agreed upon time at 10 a.m.
We went to the Government Museum and our tour guide was terrific although based on her comments it was evident that the tour was put together at the last minute. She was extremely knowledgeable and made the day very enjoyable. Unfortunately, it seemed that neither the driver nor the guide knew the itinerary. After the Government Museum, we went to the Kapaleeshwar Temple, and then to Fort St. George, followed by a late lunch. We were dropped back at the hotel by 3:30 p.m. which was a much shorter day than we had anticipated and paid for. We missed out on the experiences of visiting the Madras High Court, the Ripon Building, and the flower market that had been promised.
I was so disappointed, as this was our only day in Chennai for sightseeing and given my previous experiences with Viator, failed to meet my expectations.
Very interesting tour with Akila, the best guide that told us so many things about India and its people. I could have listen to her stories for hours!
This tour was excellent. Both guide and driver were very knowledgeable, spoke good English and made sure we had seen everything on the itinerary and some! Lunch was a great experience with good local vegetarian ingredients. Would recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Chennai.
Very knowledgeable guides. I enjoyed the storytelling style of the walk. BTW there is notice walking involved. 95 percent of the time is spent on religious sights. I would have preferred a little less of this and more of the day to day people and stories of the area. Despite this still highly recomm
The guide did an excellent job and told me in details what the fort,the peacock temple and the museum about.
Exceeded expectations. Guide really knew the detail history and his English was great.
Such an enriching experience, very well-put together! The stories provided much needed context to the sights and sounds of enchanting Mylapore. Many thanks to our story teller, she made it an thoroughly amazing walk.
Guide excellent, tour very informative, great value for money
