"Really nice and complete tourist tour of Pondichéry. \n\nWe booked for 2 just the night before! The service is very reactive. The car was comfy and with A/C. The driver was on time and flexible. He shared some knowledge about different places while driving. \n\nWe strongly recommend this tour as its price is definitely worth it.

Full Day Sightseeing Tour Of Pondicherry The experience was average. Firstly the driver was professional and punctual. However, he took us to places where much time got consumed especially on lunch etc. We missed Paradise Beach and he started giving pretexts about it like traffic congestion, closure of the boat house since the start of the tour. And when compared to the local rates of hiring the same quality vehicle i.e. AC Etios semi-sedan, Thrillophilia charge way too much which was way beyond their advertised rate of Rs. 490/ per head. Also there was a fear of paying Rs. 200 per extra hour beyond the scheduled 8 hours right from the beginning. The driver killed time and wanted to impose extra charges on us for visiting Paradise Beach,a trick which we could avoid.
