Nayantara took us around Georgetown market for over two hours and showed us around. We learned so much about both the market and Chennai as a whole. This was a great introduction into the city, and we highly recommend. Nayantara was so kind and a wonderful speaker!

We started off our trip through southern India with a walking tour of the vegetable and flower market in Georgetown. Our guide, Mrs Aquila Rana, provided our group of parents in their 50s and adult children in their 20s with a very engaging and fun walk. We loved it!
