Good audible presentation with lovely touches of humor. A fine care of safety and also positioning to get back views and audibility when traffic was noisy.

A fantastic introduction to Indian culture. The informative nature of the tour is greatly appreciated!

The bazaar tour was amazing! So many interesting sights, sounds, smells and a fascinating glimpse into Chennai life. The food descriptions were perfect. The piece about the Armenian Church immigrants was also fascinating. Thank you!

Gave us insight into the city’s backstreets and into food/meals we would not otherwise have been confident to experience.

These guides know everything! Don’t miss the Bazaar Tour. People and color and every imaginable form of food and garment.

Andrew Sleath

It was great. We have seen streets where I would not gone myself at the time. And even I would I wouldn’t have been aware of the special products and the stories behind it. This tour has really added value to visiting Chennai. Thanks!

“Very interesting walk. Lots of information and spices to look at, taste and learn about their origin. Things we use daily but never bother knowing about!”
