This walking tour combined with tuk tuk ride was perfect. Our guide spoke excellent English and she was interesting and knowledgeable. We were comfortable being in areas we would not have ventured by ourselves

Just amazing! This tour gets you really close to an authentic Indian food market, colorful and chaotic. Be prepared to a unique experience. Andrew is a very good guide. You cannot leave Chennai without seeing this part of town.
