The guide Mani was knowledgeable about the history of Pondicherry and he painstakingly explained it to me during our visit. I think it is a lot to pack in one day but we made the most of it. The weather was hot, could have been more pleasant in better weather.

It is always refreshing to have a guided tour with a guide who combines knowledge and a pleasant personality. Mani our guide had both. His descriptions of the highly complex iconography and history of the hindu religion was enlightening. Fully recommended to people interested in the real India of the past and present.

I was picked up at my hotel on-time. I received a detailed, guided tour of all the main sites in Pondicherry and also Auroville. We visited Serenity Beach as well which was the highlight for me. I would recommend this experience to any first time travelers to Pondicherry.

Mr Manikandan (the owner of the company) is a very friendly and knowledgeable person and made my Pondichery & Auroville Tour very wonderful!! He shown me a lot of attractions and told me a lot of interesting things about the Indian culture during the tour. I liked this day very much and I can only recommend this trip!
I would always book a tour with Avatar Tours & Travels! Thanks a lot!
