It was definitely wonderful experience.. He brought us on a journey through mahabalipuram.. It clearly was passionate abt the place and did his thorough research.. Wish we could have spent more time with him in mahabalipuram. We couldn't get enough of the place.. We could have easily spent the whole day there chatting with Sadhu abt hindu culture and the analysing each sculpture, discussing the history and religion.. It definitely was the highlight of our trip in Chennai.. Loved it!

I misunderstood the idea of this tour. I thought it would be a historical look at Mahabalipuram with just a guide, and was surprised to have a photographer along for the ride. However, it was a wonderful experience to have a photographer as I was not pressured to take photos and just enjoy the tour. The photos were a lovely surprise and actually added to the experience. It should be clearly stated as a tour "with a professional photographer" in which you get "to keep/cherish the best photos at the end of the tour." The whole experience could be marketed in a clearer way so you walk in knowing you get to enjoy the sites, history, and let the cameraman do all the work! Overall, it was fun way to see the best historic points of interest of Mahabalipuram with a passionate guide! A unique and recommended experience!

Sadhu is very knowledgeable but more importantly is a wonderful and enthusiastic storyteller who brings history to life. He’s also a fascinating person and we had a wonderful lunch getting to know him a little better - when his feature film goes global we will revel in having met him first.

It was indeed a very good experience. Both Sadhu and his friend were very well prepared. They know what to be done. Above all, they have so much interest on the Photography, which will obviously end up in getting beautiful pics. This experience is recommended for both locals , expats/ tourists. Capturing UNESCO world heritage monuments as a background is certainly a must things to do for any tourist-er. Sadhu and his mate are very passionate! Very all the best for them
