    This guided tour takes you to a zoo, an urban national park, and a reptile farm. While the city location means the animals are in captivity, one of the things you will learn from each location is that India is working to preserve it's wildlife heritage.

    My personal favorite was the reptile facility. Watching the workers there handle live cobras and extract venom for making antivenom was hair raising. The snakes are returned to the wild after a few draws. Meanwhile the lizard collection is unlike anything I have seen, and it was noted on one enclosure that some of these lizards are placed in the wild to help replenish endangered populations.

    My guide Raj was highly fluent in English, quite friendly, and took us to a restaurant that served a very tasty South Indian lunch. A day well spent.

    Booked this trip as its itinerary contained what I wanted + the English guide.
    Pickup from hotel was in time, and I was surprised to be the only participant. At the end I had three guys at my service: driver, tour lead and local guide.
    This worked out well.
    I got good intro to all the locations plus two extra as the trip went so smoothly.
    A very interesting place, especially with the guides.
    Quite hot in late April, a good idea to start as early as possible, even if that makes the lunch timing a challenge.

    Four stars as all so fine but no luxury.

    Could use the same team again.

    We had taken a day off in Chennai and enrolled for the St Thomas tour. It was a fantastic experience, full of learning and interesting churches and stories. Our guide Kannan was amazing and told us all about how the apostle Thomas came to chennai 2000 years ago. He showed us his handprints in a cave. The basilica of St Thomas was outstanding. Kannan was kind enough to show us some relics of St Thomas as well. This is highly recommended for anyone who wants to know more about the ancient history of Chennai

    We had a the best day - our guide was amazing, so kind and gracious and had our comfort and enjoyment in mind the whole day. All of the details were taken care of an all we had to do was show up and enjoy. The tour guides at the various stops were amazing, the lunch was incredible and all of the sights and history we discovered that day was really amazing. Our host and driver were great.

    I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again!

    Our guide Kannan led us on an unforgettable day to the holiest Christian sites in all of India. I recommend this tour for all believers and anyone interested in the amazing history of Christianity in India.

    I had a blast touring the bustling Sowcarpet Market in Chennai with Rajesh. I'm a vlogger so Rajesh had to take extra time to allow me to properly film the shots that I wanted to capture, which he did. He also explained the important facts of the market and the food so that I could get myself situated in this maze of history and food. All in all, an awesome experience. I highly recommend you book this tour!

    Loved this tour! I went in the evening as I couldn't make it in the am and was the only person on the tour...I literally had my own private tour...it was wonderful.

    The tour guide is very knowledgeable about the history of Chennai and the areas he took me too. He was extremely flexible as well and patiently answered all my questions. Great tour ... thank you!!

    Took a day trip from Chennai to Pondichery and then to Mahabalipuram with Vijay from Five Senses Tours. Fascinating trip to the former French colony with a side trip to the Auroville commune. Then visited the Mahabalipuram monuments on the way back to Chennai. Vijay was a fabulous tour guide and host. We had great conversation on the trip and he was quite knowledgeable. He also arranged a specialist additional guide for Mahabalipuram. All sites were interesting but I'm particularly happy that I visited Mahabalipuram with its monolithic monuments (carved from single large stone!). I highly recommend Vijay and Five Senses. I'll likely be back in Chennai in the future and will certainly use them again.

    Good sightseeing if you are interested in old monument, i will not suggest to take a dip in water as water quality seems to be bad. ASI need to maintain the original nature of many temples and educate the people about the purpose of temples and not just the characters of building.

    I booked a cab from Chennai Airport to Pondicherry and on the way visited Mahabalipuram and Auroville. Rajesh from Wonder Tours helped me with different itineraries but I wasn't very keen on travelling a lot and wanted something that fit my budget. Hence they worked out a day trip with pickup from Chennai airport, visited the Various monuments in Mahabalipuram and Also Auroville. Though for a single passenger, the amount did feel a lot but if then it's based on the car and driver - in which you can seat more than one person and upto 3-4 people. It would've been perfect for a family to pay that much but then I'll also say that I got every penny's worth. The car was clean, the driver was polite and professional and all throughout rajesh helped me with the booking. It was a worry-free, hassle free travel with everything going as planned.

    Unexplored Indian History. The legend of Kudimiyanmalai was woven into a brilliant play by Girish Karnad (Flowers). Sittanavassal is a marvel of Jain culture. The real wonder is that it is not one of the wonders of the world.
