Outstanding insite into cultural traditions and way of life in Southern India. Opportunity to take photos of activities which would be overlooked by the casual visitor. Thoroughly recommend this.

We learned, tasted and observed so much just by walking around in the streets of the old city at the sunrise with our great tour guide Leena. A mosaic of the tamil and indian daily life and traditions, new to the eyes of a foreigner.

Really lovely walking tour with an interesting and informative guide, Leena. Visited the back streets and local markets. Finished off with a south Indian breakfast which was rather nice. Pity the tour was only 2 hours long though as this made it a little rushed.
