This was my first scuba diving experience, and it was just awesome. I have no words to express my happiness here.

I had my best experience. I will definitely do this again here.
"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.
