“Tour was excellent. Really informative with lots of insights, stories and anecdotes. Kannan, my guide, was very passionate about everything we were seeing. The tour gave me a real feel for life in Chennai. Starting at 8am was perfect as it meant that it wasn’t too hot when walking and the 3 hours flew by. My one bit of advice would be to follow the example of locals and wear sandles as you need to take your shoes off when inside the temples. This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour with a fabulous guide. I would definitely recommend it.”
“It was an amazing tour where Dhanalakshmi told us amazing stories of the numerous gods and goddesses and what they can do for the devotees. It was a fantastic experience to listen to the legends simplified for us. The Dosa and coffee were mind-blowing!”
