It was easy to coordinate w/ Mani, he picked me on time from my hotel. As a multi-generational Pondycherrite, he knows his city and loves to share that cultural history and connection on his tour. A courteous, knowledgeable person with a very comfortable suv, ability to customize itinerary and super reasonable price == a great guide and tour… and that’s exactly what I got!! So 2 thumbs, way upppp…

The guide Mani was knowledgeable about the history of Pondicherry and he painstakingly explained it to me during our visit. I think it is a lot to pack in one day but we made the most of it. The weather was hot, could have been more pleasant in better weather.

The heat & humidity makes it seem like too much is getting covered in one day but Mr. Mani knows his Pondicherry very well. The car & his perspective make the effort worth one's while. The tour was conducted professionally.

It is always refreshing to have a guided tour with a guide who combines knowledge and a pleasant personality. Mani our guide had both. His descriptions of the highly complex iconography and history of the hindu religion was enlightening. Fully recommended to people interested in the real India of the past and present.

Mani has considerable in depth knowledge about interesting locations in Puducherry. We had a pleasant / comfortable tour and covered most of the planned locations. Still remember the coffee at KBS outlet. Would happily recommend this tour to anyone interested in Puducherry and it's history.

I was picked up at my hotel on-time. I received a detailed, guided tour of all the main sites in Pondicherry and also Auroville. We visited Serenity Beach as well which was the highlight for me. I would recommend this experience to any first time travelers to Pondicherry.

This was my first visit to Pondicherry and after much research, I decided to avail the guided city tour since there is so much to cover! To say that the trip was very enriching and delightful would be an understatement!! We covered so much and with Mr. Manikandan’s expert knowledge as a local and guide was invaluable! Religion, culture, cuisine, monuments, he was very knowledgable… the best part was that he was very flexible and patient since I was traveling with kids… he kept engaging with them and drawing them into conversations so they would also feel included. Overall a great experience and I would undoubtably recommend Avtar Tours and travels for your sight seeing needs! I have already shared their details with friends and family who were so ecstatic to see pictures of the off beat places!!!

Traveling is my passion. I feel happy while traveling. Now-a-days I travel with my friend Dr. L N Bhat. We both like each other’s company and traveling makes both of us happy. We planned Pondicherry Trip. After searching on the net, we managed to contact Mr. Manikandan - proprietor of Avatar Tours and Travels. We just gave him the time of our arrival and departure. He planned our itinerary from 8th October to 11th October 2022. We arrived at Pondicherry on 8th 10.15 in the morning. Karthik, the driver sent by Manikandan picked us from the Railway Station, and from then onwards till the date of our departure, that is 11th afternoon, and dropping us at Chennai Central Railway station was Manikandan’s responsibility and he didn’t leaving any chance for us to complaint. We have visited almost all tourist spots in Pondicherry, Tiruvannamalai and Kanchipuram. Manikandan also took us to one or two extra places which were not included in the itinerary. Preparing Itinerary, arranging conveyance and hotel booking - everything was done perfectly by Manikandan, and he did it so professionally that we felt very comfortable and happy. The package he offered was very reasonable for the quality of stay and Travels that he had arranged. He is such a gem of a person that I am compelled to write this review. He treated us like good old friends. His cab drivers also took good care and made our trip a memorable one. Anyone who wants to travel to Pondicherry may contact Avatar Tour and Travels for the kind of experience that we had. Manikandan is a kind hearted person, and makes your trip enjoyable and also a memorable one. That is for sure.
