The heritage walk in pune was a great one. Ajit was a fantastic guide and he told us about the colourful past of the city when the Peshwas were ruling the kingdom. We saw magnificent palaces with intriguing stories, colourful temples and a quaint local bazaar. It was a memorable day indeed.

The heritage walk in Pune was a cultural extravaganza. Out guide was amazing and took us to shaniwar Wada a magnificent palace. We also enjoyed the city museum with a remarkable collection of heritage artefacts. The famous temple built by a sweetmeat maker was the highlight. Our guide explained all the rituals and we met a few local people as well. It was a remarkable day which gave me a new perspective on India and Pune. Very highly recommended for a 3 hour cultural immersion.

The communication was excellent on what our itinerary was and what time & where to meet us.

We were met by Ajit who had an outstanding knowledge of the area and the history. He had some anecdotes about each of the place we visited.

He was flexible & especially ensured my 11 year old son could understand what was being said and aimed the tour at him.

It was educational and informative but most importantly a fun experience.

The pune heritage walk was a remarkable experience. Our guide Ajit was simply fantastic. He was full of knowledge and humour. We really enjoyed how he brought a modern perspective to the ancient monuments. The unique temple if Lord Ganesh was mesmerizing and so was Shaniwarwada the Palace of Peshwas. We also had traditional chai (tea) along the way. We met and spoke to some locals and it was a memorable experience to learn about their way if life and how they manage this cusp of ancient and modern India.
This was one of the best walks I have done anywhere in the world. Very highly recommended.

Once of the best experience I had. Went to the Dagdu Sheth Halwai Temple and also the Halwai Sweet shop. Insanely sweet stuff. Bought a few to munch them down! Love it. Went to Kelkar Museum. Love it. I dig for this museum stuff. We also went to Shaniwar Wada. Oh man! I did watch the Bollywood movie Bajirao Mastani. And listening to the history, it's just mind-blowing. The only setback was that it was raining and we did not have enough opportunity to take a proper photo. I would have love to take perspective photos. And lastly, had a blast at one of the most iconic place, Aga Khan Palace!! The place of Mahatma Ganhdi himself! Our guide Nikhil has been very helpful and insightful. He bought us the best masala chai I have ever tasted and the food for lunch are simply awesome! Highly recommended!!

I booked the Pune City tour for my sister and I. It was a private tour for two and Narayanan from 5 Senses was very patient while answering my queries about the trip. Communications through the emails was very professionally written and managed.

Nice touch - reminders & details were given the day before our trip. We were picked up in a car by our tour guide Nikhil and the driver. The car was comfortable and drinks & snacks were provided.

The tour continued despite the rain. Pune had been raining non stop for the past few days. We were given umbrellas especially for the trip to Shaniwar Wada. It would have been nicer if the sun had came out.

We were into spicy and savoury food and Nikhil took us to Blue Nile restaurant for an awesome lunch. The chicken kebab was awesome and I even had extras to go. It was soooo...so good. We shared the mutton and chicken briyani and ended it with its famous custard dessert. Would totally recommend this place if you are not afraid of spicy & savoury food.

Aga Khan palace was beautiful and Nikhil arranged for a local guide to introduce its rich history to us. Through her, the story of Mahatms Gandhi's stay at the palace came alive. Good thing the sun peeked out and allowed us to explore the surrounding area without the umbrellas. It was a very enriching walk.

The highlight of our tour was to try the local Indian tea which Nikhil arranged for us. Not once...but TWICE. Definitely a must if you've never tried 'chai' before. It was the most heartwarming tea we've ever tasted, especially with the gloomy weather we had the whole day.

We took the tour unsure of what to expect as this was our first trip to India. But thanks to this 5 Senses experience, it will definitely not be the last.

Thank you 5 Senses & Nikhil for the wonderful experience and introduction to the city of Pune.

Really well organised. Booked on impulse day before. Lots of emails and WhatsApp helpful instructions. Fantastic transport and really good guide. It was 1:1 and we went to interesting temple, great old ruined fort. Then wandered market finding bargains for my wife daughters and son. Also visited the political birthplace of freedom from Britain. Guide info was just at right level of detail. Then finished with delicious vegetarian meal and beautiful in season mango puree. Hugely recommend as I felt I got a real taste and smell of India. Unforgettable experience. Thanks Abhay.
