Chandan was really fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, and shared so much valuable and interesting information, which he wove into a narrative that was so easy to understand. He was flexible and adjusted our plan during the day as was necessary. He was also very polite and respectful, and I enjoyed his company immensely. The day was so enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend this guide and this tour, especially to first-time visitors to India, like myself.

Throughly enjoyed our day with Chandan. My wife and I were fortunate enough to have hired Chandan for our day tour in Chennai while traveling on the Queen Mary 2. We found Chandan to be very professional, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. My wife had a few particular shopping requests, and Chandan went out of his way to ensure that this was accomplished. We would definitely recommend Chandan; he definitely made our visit to Chennai and most memorable one! Thank you, Chandan!

I thoroughly enjoyed my days outing with Chandan. He is a very scholarly, erudite young man who knows his history. He took me to Fort St George and his passion and interesting slant on the history of India was very infectious. He brought history alive for me and has made me dash off and uncover all sorts of resource books and documentaries. He balances seriousness with charming idiosyncratic visits which spice up your day. We had such a lovely time and I would highly recommend

My wife and I enjoyed a terrific one day tour of Chennai with Chandan. It was very hot and he made sure to keep us hydrated with some of the local tender coconuts and sweet lime juice! Chandan is extremely knowledgeable about not only the history of the city but India at large as well. We learned a lot about the evolution of Indian culture and society, art and religion. It was a motor tour and his ability to navigate the traffic and streets was truly impressive. Fluent in English and tremendous guide.

Chandan gave myself and my wife a wonderful tour of Chennai. He is a tremendously knowledgeable guide and I can heartily recommend him to anyone looking for a top-notch, insightful and thoroughly entertaining day tour experience. Chandan knows all the best spots to visit in Chennai, while having an encyclopaedic grasp of the history of India as a whole stretching back through the millennia, along with a great sense of humour. We only wish we had a few more days here to take another splendid tour with him.

We spent last Sunday 19th March in Chennai which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our guide was knowledgeable and informative. The mix of places visited were varied and interesting. We particularly found the Museum exhibit of Chola bronzes fascinating and beautiful. We will recommend tours by locals to friends and will use them again when we travel. Dennis and Christine Anthony

Sorry for taking so long in writing this review. WE had the pleasure of Chandan and his father Ben's company in Chennai in November of 2016. Thanks to you and your father (Ben) we discovered so much about every aspect of not only Chennai.But also the religion and life of that part of India. Despite the chaos caused by the currency restrictions being imposed at that time you and Ben (a retired professor) showed us so much that we have to come back, this time to visit Pondicherry.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Stephen, thank you very much for the kind review, and asking after me. I have completely recovered, and am back on track in all ways! I do hope I see you guys again very very soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour by Chandan and were very impressed with both his knowledge and his cheerfully and thoughtfully answering of all of our many questions. After hearing of our interest in education, religion, and political science, Chandan kept us fascinated and riveted with interesting stories that gave us a window into the local and national scene. We felt very lucky to have him as our guide. Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed my tour of Chennai with Chandan. He's a great guide, really informative and interesting to talk to. I think i got much more out of my day in Chennai on this tour than I would have just sightseeing on my own.

Chandon was a superb tour guide. He took me to all the places I requested, was great at explaining this history and culture, and we ate awesome dishes. I would highly recommend Chandon.

Great day out and I learned a lot. Day developed well with a few choice sites while he figured out my needs which was to get in amongst those who live in Chennai. The bronze works and stone works in the museum must be seen but mostly I really enjoyed the market and the traditional linen store - a real throwback to the 1930's and possibly before - four people to check me out, all sitting beside each other in a row - brilliant. A very professional yet personal day with someone who cares about where he lives

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: There was a misunderstanding with the customer regarding transport cost for this 2 week tour. To set things right, the customer was refunded the entire sum - to not leave a bad taste. Unfortunately it still seems to have.
