My husband and I signed up for the Marina Beach Walk with pickup and drop off included. Kannan, our guide, promptly met us in our hotel lobby and took us to a comfortably air conditioned vehicle with driver.
Upon learning that we had not been able to visit many sites in Chennai due to a family emergency, Kannan said he would alter the tour to include some additional sites on the way to Marina Beach. We spent the next few hours seeing Kapaleeshwar Temple, Ramakrishna Mutt, Santhome Basilica, Vivekananda House/Ice House, and Marina Beach and Light House.
It was amazing, and Kannan was very knowledgeable about each location, giving us a thorough history. We really appreciated his thoughtfulness in adjusting this private tour for us.
I highly recommend this tour, and I will seek out other Tripadvisor tours in the future.
