Ich kann den voranstehenden positiven Eindrücken anderer Reisender voll und ganz zustimmen. Akueella I hope I wrote her name not too wrong made a very good job. Sie hat die kleine Gruppe in leicht verständlichem Englisch sehr anschaulich informiert und auf Nachfragen kompetent und humorvoll reagiert.
Ich kann eine Tour mit ihr ohne Einschränkungen empfehlen.

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.

Aquilla not sure of spelling was one of the best tour guides I have had in any country. She had a wealth of knowledge about the history of India but also stories to keep it personal and fun. Enjoyed the temple, priest's house and Thomas the Apostle church. It was a lovely 2 hours and I left feeling I knew much more about India and the culture of the South and North. Will recommend to anyone traveling to Chennai. Did not realize that Mary had such an extensive wardrobe as she does in India.

This is the best thing to do to get to know that part of the city, the Mylapore neighborhood, and the Kapaleeshwarar temple. Akeelah is a great guide who is amazing at giving you the history of the place in a great story-telling way, she'll take you around the temple and explain the traditions, tell stories about the history of the major sites and the people living there. She took me to the template, the tank, the Santhome church and didn't forget to take me a on a tuk tuk ride and treated me to a great Dosa and Smabar, she is the perfect tour/walk companion, I high recommend this tour to everyone going through chennai!

If you have limited time and you want to really understand India this is a perfect tour for you. Our guide was speaking very good English and she really had a feeling how present a story to be attractive. Beside temple we also visited priest home, took a riksha, visited St. Thomas church and take a snack with coffee in a restaurant. I really loved it.

I booked the Peacock Trail walking tour in Chennai, India though Trip Advisor, with about 12 hours notice. The guide showed up on time.and provided an excellent description of what I was seeing, including extensive cultural tidbits not often heard on these programs.
Although billed as a walking tour, it is not overly so and an auto-rickshaw and significant snack enough for my lunch are included. i was also told that they offer this and other tours with Airport pick-up, for those on layover.
