Took this Mahabalipuram tour during a short stay in Chennai, and found it to be a great excursion! Private transfer in a very clean and air conditioned vehicle, with hotel pick-up and drop-off, and private tour guide on site. Driver was great, and very cordial, and tour guide was very knowledgeable. I enjoyed visiting the temples and also witnessing the people in worship. Was even blessed by a Hindu priest! The tour company was Uvamai Niche Tourism booked through Viator. I like the convenience of booking through Viator. Thanks!

Guide was super friendly and very knowledgeable. Especially good if you don't have much time in Chennai, but want to get a taste of something other than the city itself. We are glad we did it.

I enjoyed the visit a lot and specially that the guide was so expert and he gave me lots of information about the place. It was a well organised journey to that must see place.

The tour guide was exceptional but the back end service was appalling. First , they did not contact me to reconfirm my tour although i had sent them an email to reconfirm my tour. In their reply to my email they said someone from their Chennai office will contact me and I waited until one day before tour and still no contact. I had to call Delhi long distance to confirm my tour. Slack service . The only positive was that the guide they gave us was outstanding.
