* A traveler said: "This was a great tour. Even though I was the only person booked in it still ran. This tour provided an opportunity to visit a larger area than you would normally see when walking around. The guide also provided interesting background information to the history of the area. It is advisable to find the tour meeting spot if possible the day before, as it is a few streets away from the main Pondicherry area."
