Your day starts with morning pickup at the port in Mangalore by your private guide.
Ride in comfort in a private air-conditioned vehicle to your first destination, a cashew factory, a signature industry of Mangalore, which is the largest cashew producer and exporter in India. Take a factory tour to learn about the process of preparing the cashews from sorting to cooking and packing.
After 30 minutes at the cashew factory, proceed to the hills of Kadri to see Kadri Manjunath Temple, a popular Hindu temple that dates to the 10th or 11th century. Your guide shows you around the ponds, gardens, and ornate buildings of the temple complex.
Continue to Sri Gokarnanatheshwara Temple (Gokarnath Temple), which is devoted to Lord Shiva, and decked out with white marble floors, gold paint, and extensive murals depicting Hindu gods and goddesses.
After two hours of temple hopping, take a break for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense), then head to the Central Market to experience the colorful bustle of local people shopping for fruits, vegetables, and other household items. Next up, go up Lighthouse hill to visit St. Aloysius Chapel, which is know for superb frescos painted in the late 1800s by the Italian artist Brother Moscheni.
Your tour ends with drop-off at your cruise ship port or hotel in the late afternoon.

Good but could have been better
, Apr 2019
Overall we enjoyed the excursion. However there were a few disappointing aspects. We had exchanged messages beforehand with the manager of the excursion provider including a late request for a change to the programme. However there was no response to that and the request had not been passed on to our guide. The guide was a very nice young student doing the job part time as he prepared for his exams. He was reasonably knowledgeable but not at the level of all the other guides we had during our shore excursions. There was no visit to the cashew factory as it was a Sunday BUT we were not informed in advance that this would be the case.
Best tour we ever had!!

The guide was an amazing, fantastic young educated lady. The places she took us were unexpectedly wonderful. She explained and showed us places that were perfect for the amount of time and walking. We were very lucky to have this guide. Her education was superb, and she understood exactly what we like. We were very impressed with this guide that made the visit to Mangalore the best visit!

The whole tour is filled with highlights, but the ones that especially stood out were the visit to the cashew nut factory, the St Aloysius Chapel and Kadri Majunantha Temple. The tour guide, Gaywain Lasrado and our driver were fantastic, willing and flexible to show us many more of Mangalore's treasures, e.g. fish market and Tannirubavi Beach.

The private tour was amazing. Viator has never disappointed us for value promptness and reliability. We were met right outside cruise port gate by guide in native dress with private car parked in a few feet away. Great private tour with much personal attention. Thanks again
Excellent tour with a fun guide...

Excellent tour with a fun guide! Enjoyed the lunch and the 3 litre Kingfisher jugs! The market was fun with all,the different produce and the heat and noise. Had a pair of shoes lifted at the Hindu temple but didn't spoil the day at all. The cashew factory was amazing.
