Pondicherry City Bike Tour with Breakfast

Hop a vintage-style bicycle to discover French, Tamil, and Muslim neighborhoods in the scenic, seaside city of Pondicherry. Traveling by bike isn't only a fun way to get around town—you’ll also be able to cover more sights in less time. Speed down cobblestoned streets and beachside promenades, getting a peek at colonial architecture and flower-filled public parks. A garden breakfast is included, with your choice of French or South Indian.

What to Expect
Meet up at the designated location in Pondicherry at 7:00 am for brief instructions and pike pickup. Then starts the tour at city center and discover some amazing hidden places of the city. Tour starts with the Muslim Quarter also called Green Quarter. Then, you'll continue to Tamil and French quarters with its colonial houses. While riding along the streets of Pondicherry, you will understand what makes it a multicultural place: architecture, urban city design, and of course, the people on the streets. Pondicherry combines French touch with a typical Indian taste. Once back to your departure point, you will be offered a special breakfast: Indian with idly, chutney and sambar or French with baguette, butter and homemade jam. It is served in the garden with hot drinks and fresh juice.

No you need not be very adept... Plus you could go one day earlier and check out the bicycles and try them which suits you best and use the same one the next day.
