          When Doubting Thomas to Chennai!
          The tour is a very well organised one and we started at the magnificent San Thome Basilica. The architecture is mind-blowing. We next moved to Little Mount Cave. This is where St Thomas lived for a while and you can see his hand prints. The final destination is St Thomas Mount with its magnificent church. The tour was led by Kannan and it was an amazing one. I would recommend this.

        The tour undertaken with our guide Nivethitha was excellent. While I had visited the basilica in 2006, there was much that I had not appreciated about the whole history of the work and persecution of st Thomas here in Chennai. Not only did I enjoy visiting both the mount and the tomb where he lived, but was grateful for the narrative given by Nivethitha. We were especially fortunate to also arrive at the basilica to hear the Sunday sermon given in English. Throughout the trip she was also very sensitive to my need for quiet reflection at each of the places visited. Thank you for a truly lovely experience

        Very informative tour of St Thomas Apostle’s time in India during first century AD.
        So much to see, the Christianity here is in full flow with numerous churches and schools.
        The basilica of St Thomas is a stunning church with his relics underneath in the crypt.
        The other sites offer a great insight into St Thomas’s presence here and offer stunning views of Chennai itself.
        The guide Kannan was top class and very knowledgeable about the subject matter.
        He took me for a stunning lunch showcasing the best of South Indian cuisine.
        All in all, a highly recommended tour.

        I really enjoyed 'Following the footsteps of Saint Thomas ' tour . The tour guide Kanan was exceptional. He was very patient throughout the tour . He was very knowledgeable and allowed me time to pray at each church which I really appreciated. I felt very relaxed during the tour . Kanan made the tour memorable. I must acknowledge the driver as well Vignesh who was always waiting with the AC car when we were ready.

        The st Thomas trial was a revelation. It was a fascinating story of how St Thomas came to Chennai 2000 years ago and introduced Christianity to this part of the world. Our guide Kannan was amazing and even showed us the 2000 year old handprints of the apostle. He regaled us with stories of St Thomas and the history of the city . Very highly recommended

        Very interesting and fascinating guided tour to the places connected to the time that the apostle St Thomas spent in Chennai: we visited the beautiful St Thomas basilica ( one of the 3 churches in the world built on a tomb of a Saint); the Little mount (the cave where St Thomas tried to hide for few years) and the third place on the hill where he was killed. Thank you for the great tour to my private guide Kannan (very knowledgeable and attentive). Thanks to the company 5 senses who organised the transfer to the airport right after the tour.

        All three of the Saint Thomas sites are well worth visiting. Our guide, Kansan,did an excellent job introducing the significance of the sirs and the story of St. Thomas. Beyond this, however, we also visited Marina Beach (and could have done the lighthouse had it been open). He also took us to a Hindu shrine and explained its importance. For lunch, we were introduced to South Indian rhalis (meals) and leaned the correct way to go about mixing the sauces and eating it. It was a great experience, especially since I would never have done this alone. Kennan was very personable and helped to make it a great half day (more actually). I highly recommend this tour.

        Kannan kindly extended our experience in Chennai with a visit to St Thomas cathedral and St Thomas’ tomb. His knowledge, patience and determination to show us the best of Chennai is admirable and much appreciated. An excellent excursion.

        A really great tour, especially if you have just a few hours to see Chennai as well as get a glimpse into some pretty interesting Christian history! The tour guide, Satish was professional and very knowledgeable; he along with our driver ensured an exceptional experience! Highly recommend this tour!
