Hello, Thank you for feedback. It is lovely to hear that you had a great walk that was all you could ask for. :D We hope to see you on more of our trails- we also run them in Mumbai, Madurai, Pondicherry or Trivandrum. Warmly, Akila

Fantastic Tour, Even Better Tour Guide

What a lovely tour, and an even better tour guide! Aquila was a wonderful storyteller with a warm personality. She showed us shades of Chennai through visits to a famous temple, a famous cathedral, and a local priest's home. Aquila mixed stories of India's past with commentary on its modern society, both of which I found so fascinating. The tour included a bonus auto ride and ended with a delicious idly and sambar snack. Highly recommend!

Karunya was an excellent guide. She shared so many stories about the temple and took us into the family home of a priest. We felt like we got an in-depth view of daily life. We also enjoyed the snack at the end (at local cafe).

Lakshmi was a delightful and knowledgable guide and really brought life to the Hindu myths and stories. She was also solicitous of our need for shade. The pick up option seemed very expensive. Viator sent our booking on through another website, so there was a delay in it being recognised.

We had a wonderful guide and despite turning up to somewhere we had never been before it was out first morning in India, our guide found us pretty quickly amongst the crowds of people arriving to visit the Temple. We had a very personal service and great introduction to India. It was all capped off with a lovely breakfast and south-Indian coffee, which I can whole-heatedly recommend. We were also given a local cafe/restaurant recommendation for a place near our hotel, Chamier, which despite not selling alcohol, is a great place to eat. Mylapore and the Temple is an amazing place, as is Chennai, and really tests our senses, both from an historical perspective, but also from the sheer number of people and the chaos that creates on the roads etc. We had a wonderful tour and happy to recommend highly.

The Mylapore tour was wonderful! We learned so much about local and Hindu culture and traditions while exploring the temple and church. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and clear. We had been to many temples and cities before but never understood as much as we did while taking this tour. Well worth it!

We had a really great tour and Lakshmi our guide was amazing. I am a native of chennai and spent 25 years in Chennai before moving to the USA and very familiar with Mylapore but decided to take the tour for our American friends instead of giving them my own home brewed version. That was the best decision that I made. The tour was very informative and structured very well. The tour of the Hindu temple priests house is a really unique experience and the tour also took us to St. Thomas church which I had never visited and did not realize that it commemorated one of the apostles. Very well narrated and organized. Will fully recommend it for tourists and natives.

The storyteller was good but this tour was not what I expected. I recommend only if you want to learn about the stories behind the Hindu symbols.
