Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was a wonderful experience. The organizing staff was responsive, thorough, detailed, and very courteous to my needs. Everything worked perfect and it was a really good day. The drivers were on time and polite. The guide in Agra was very knowledgeable and spoke both English and Spanish. I would recommend warmly. Good value and a good day.

    Our whole day was a truly memorable experience. The Kanchipuram Temple was amazing and Mahabalipuram could only happen in India. Both temples deserve many days exploration. A high light was lunch with our guide, Kannan. Not only did we get expert descriptions of the temples, their art, history and functions, we got a culinary guide through a Hindu meal. Then an added bonus of a tour of St Thomas Cathedral and St Thomas’ tomb. Our 5 senses were truly saturated…..

    Great tour. We were a group of seven, four grandparents, an 11 year old, and two adults. Some of us spoke Tamil, others did not. Kannan was able to manage our group with ease, and was an excellent tour guide. He was very informative and knowledgable. His English was excellent and easy to understand, and he understood us as well. The tour was well paced and insightful, and we learned a lot despite having visited India and Chennai multiple times before. Had an excellent lunch at the end.

    If you are lucky enough to have Preethi as your guide you will enjoy a tour with a personable, flexible, and informative guide who will answer all questions with aplomb (including many questions unrelated to the tour).

    There was only one other woman on the tour with me and Preethi interpreted our preferences and fit in a few extras like lighting candles to make a wish at the temple, and helping us buy dupattas. She was charming throughout.

    The only thing I would advise (if you are a clean freak like me and not happy to go barefoot at times) is to take a spare pair of socks.

    Our visit to Srividya's home was definitely one of my highlights on my trip to India. She is so welcoming and friendly, and takes care of every detail. It was so interesting to see how she prepares the meal, and she explained every step of the process. We had such a good time and I would highly recommend this experience to anyone traveling to Chennai.

    We enjoyed the tour. Pick up was on time, entrance fees and lunch were included in the price. Nivi and Ramesh from 5 senses were lovely. We loved all the stories and extra advice we’ve got from them. We may book other tours with them when we will be back to Chennai.

    Compact, informative tour that gives a good sense of the British rule and architecture in Chennai. Srikhrisnan is a knowledgeable and attentive guide. Recommended!

    Met our story teller Karunya at the meetup point and the wonderful story began. We walked and ate for almost 2 full hours. The sample size portions, allowed us to enjoy a lot of different varieties of food and it was all good. Karunya was great host and we really enjoyed the stories with the amazing food. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to sample South Indian small bites.

    Took a day trip from Chennai to Pondichery and then to Mahabalipuram with Vijay from Five Senses Tours. Fascinating trip to the former French colony with a side trip to the Auroville commune. Then visited the Mahabalipuram monuments on the way back to Chennai. Vijay was a fabulous tour guide and host. We had great conversation on the trip and he was quite knowledgeable. He also arranged a specialist additional guide for Mahabalipuram. All sites were interesting but I'm particularly happy that I visited Mahabalipuram with its monolithic monuments (carved from single large stone!). I highly recommend Vijay and Five Senses. I'll likely be back in Chennai in the future and will certainly use them again.
