We spent a great day in Mangalore with Anil. He was a great guide making the day fun as well as informative. You can tell he loves mangalore and wants you to feel the same. We left out ship key and credit card in the car and when we got in touch with him he immediately delivered it to the ship. He saved the day for us as well
