Class started at 10am. Instead of a welcoming and short introduction we suddenly were asked to enter two rickshaws that were standing in front of the building. After a short ride we got out at the local market. After the explanation of a few spices...More

I think the bicycle tour is an amazing idea and you get to cover a bigger area in Pondicherry. It’s not tiring at all as the pace is really slow (maybe a bit too much) and anyway at the end you get rewarded with a...More

Nice tour around Pondichury , very informative , though started a bit late ....safety issue , no helmets and later lots of traffic on road ...we feel that the price charged was a bit a high for the services and type of cycles

We went on the morning bike tour, and although it was an early start, it was great fun and informative. It definitely showed a side to Pondicherry we’d not have found for ourselves. The breakfast afterwards was great too!
