This was my first scuba diving experience, and it was just awesome. I have no words to express my happiness here. All credits goes to the instructor Mike and Khushboo and other team members, they very calm composed and teaching all the important things we have to take care during the dive. 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. He shared some knowledge about different places while driving. \n\nWe strongly recommend this tour as its price is definitely worth it. Check the different places that you'll visit to plan and make the most out of this great 8 hours."
