    Just returned from this tour with Abi as a private guided walk. Loved it. I only had the afternoon in Chennai, and so chose this very informative, engaging and diverse tour as my priority. It was a hit. Wonderful to visit 4 different religious places of worship and the people of Chennai engaged, as well as walk past the Mosque. Such rich history and spiritual diversity packed into Mylapore. Highly recommended

    Harresh Ramachandran and the driver were pleasant, maintained a friendly and caring atmosphere throughout the tour. The trip was planned well giving sufficient time to see and go between places. They came on time to pick me up at the hotel and coordinated well. Communication and follow-ups were timely. I highly recommend 5Senses for tours. Thanks to Narayanan too. Kudos

    Wow! Amazing hospitality, We learned recipes and got to do hands-on supervised cooking on three dishes. And, we could elect the level of chile we cooked with, from USA our tourist heat tolerance is milder than South India's love of chile. The many other spices layered under the heat are wonderful.

    On arrival, our host took us on a car tour of a local shrine, the beach front, and a bustling outside vegetable market identifying unfamiliar fruits, vegetables, spices, and lentils.

    Back home, we were greeted by a friendly yellow lab! We visited, then adjourned to the kitchen, making three dishes. What fun. We learned a lot!

    Highly recommend this experience.

    Srividya and her family welcomed us into their condo-home for a cooking lesson.  A highlight of our Chennai visit.

    If you are curious, TRAVELING SPOON offers opportunities in many world cities. Cross-listed in Viator and TripAdvisor.

    We helped cook, mostly watched. We were served a beautiful meal and ate from a banana leaf "plate" with our right- hand fingers. What fun!

    The dishes prepared with us were:

    Keerai Kuzhambu (spinach steamed with tomato then finished with spices, dal in coconut oil and curry leaves)

    Kovakkai Perattal (a vegetable, steamed, then finished with spices, ground peanuts, and fresh grated coconut)

    Kuzhi Paniyaram (tiny round dumplings made with fermented dosa batter, served with chutneys and pickled mango)

    We gained some confidence that we might try to experience cooking these at home.  We took photos of the recipe progressions.

    A wonderful adventure! The home is in central Chennai near GRT Grand Chennai Hotel and the Hyatt. Uber works well for transport.

    Our group of New Zealand cricket fans had such a special time with Sundari and Krishna. We learned heaps about Indian food and Chennai life and had a wonderful delicious meal. Sundari and Krishna were super welcoming and it was very easy to coordinate with them, and we came away with a set of new recipes to try at home! It was a real highlight - highly recommended!
