Amazing tour of Pune
Mar 2020
We explored the city of Pune with Five senses tours. It was a great day which began at a famous temple of Elephant God. Our guide Vishal told us about the interesting story behind building of this temple by a sweetmeat maker. We next visited a remarkable museum which gave us a good idea of the heritage of this great city. Vishal brought us to a magnificent but haunted palace! We also visited the Agha khan palace which was outstanding and Vishal told us how it played a great role in the Indian independence movement. Vishal was very knowledgeable and ensured we were well taken care of. It was easily one of the best heritage tours of any city I have ever taken anywhere in the world.

Pune city tour
The full day tour of Pune was an amazing experience. My guide vikas was fantastic and very patient as well. We visited a quirky temple dedicated to an elephant God and then a haunted fort, a local bazaar and then a palace. The local food arranged for lunch was mouth watering. I learnt a lot about Pune and its people in this tour. The entire tour was very pleasant, informative, enjoyable and I felt safe with this team. Highly recommended

Fantastic Experience
Apr 2019 • Solo
On a recent work trip I had a weekend to myself in Chakan near Pune and wanted to get out and about to see the local area. I was able to book 2 private tours for a Saturday and Sunday at very short notice and customize the content to meet my interests.
On the 1st day, my guide, Vikas, and the driver arrive just before 9:30 and we managed to see everything on tour schedule as intended. He was able to answer my questions about the different locations and guide me through the bustle of down town Pune in what was a very relaxing day despite the intense heat. The included lunch was fantastic, I enjoyed very much getting to eat the proper local food, as opposed to the westernized version I get back home. Yumm.
Sunday's guide Abhay was very professional through the the day taking care of my needs, answering questions and encouraging participation with the local people. We had many warm and welcoming encounters throughout the day as we toured the temples to the South of Pune.
I will defiantly be looking you these guys up when I am next an India.

All in, the organization and execution was fantastic. The pick up details along with name, phone number and photo of the guide made things very easy to get things underway.

Culture walk in Pune
May 2018 • Friends
The culture walk in pune was a great experience. Abhay took me on this tour and I had an enjoyable time. He is a local and a very passionate one. It was great to taste the local food, especially the Maharashtrian thali. The haunted fort of shaniwarwada was spooky! I also enjoyed the bazaar walk and the amazing ganesh temple built bus a sweet maker.

A story of a palace, a dargah & 2 temples
May 2018 • Friends
We made this tour because we wanted to visit historical site but also to be in touch with local people, and experiencing their devotion, and we found what we were lloking for. The tour was very good, our guide Vikas was very much available to assist us and to explain everything. The driver also was very good despite the tremendous traffic in Pune on Saturday! We have spent a nice day, seen wonderful places, been in touch with the real people and learnt a lot about their culture. Everything was right.

Amazing day with all the cultural experience and a fabulous guide (Vikas)
Apr 2018 • Solo
I had a great day with Vikas and his driver. They took care of everything. From guiding, to purchasing, to managing other problems druing the trip or even weeks after the trip.

The cultural experience was also great:
From Caps driving, visiting the tempel, going to the castel, driving Tuk Tuk ( I just can not remeber the Indian names), going to museum and to the palace and having lots of food and drinks. I really loved this tour

Great personalized tour of Pune
Dec 2017 • Friends
Vishal was a wonderful, warmhearted tour guide. My brother and I had very little time to spend in Pune and only had time in the morning before our flight for a tour. They customized an abbreviated tour for us the morning of our flight, even picking us up from the hotel.

Vishal showed us a combination of religious sites (temples), historical sites (the Peshwa fort), and food sites (sweet shop), traveling by car, foot, and auto-rickshaw.

My brother and I are Indian by heritage but have lived in America our whole lives and only visited India once before (when we were children). There was much we didn’t know about etiquette and history but Vishal explained to us very thoroughly and inclusively (despite our lack of knowledge).

Vishal treated us as friends even more so than patrons, and even bought us sweets to take home. He was very warm to us and took joy in sharing his city. I would highly recommend their service.
