  • Not sure that I would do this tour again. This is not because of the guide but the sight. There is nothing spectacular about Auroville except the dome which we had to view from a distance. The rest of the tour of the city was good. Again, there was a problem with communication between the local office, Delhi and the guide regarding what was included in the tour. This took some time to be sorted out.

  • Very good driver on some seriously crazy roads. He even pulled over so we could take pictures of the salt farm. A guide joined us in Pondicherry for the time there and in Auroville. It was great to have a local guide with extensive knowledge of the area. The restaurant for lunch was excellent no problems even for my Western tummy. We had a wonderful time!
