Arjun Karthikeyan

Guide profile:

Hi, this is Arjun (that's my wife next to me). Let me start by saying that I am not the regular rehearsed tour guide. I am an avid traveller and love to meet people from across the world. My full time job is to produce content for Television and web, am into media and culture. I love hospitality and wish to start a restaurant soon!! I would love to share my city Chennai passionately with its quirky experiences, sights and sounds. The city by the beach, the colonial landmarks, its coffee, spirituality, art and culture and yummy food. Believe me Chennai has lots to offer than the usual..

If you need a guide in India, you should find Arjun! But only if you want someone warm, funny, kind, adventurous, and thoughtful. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to give you the best experience possible. From city sights to shopping to temples to monuments and even to the beach. He took us to great local food and even the coconut vendor along the coast highway! He makes you feel very comfortable and we have much gratitude for our time together.

Thank you from Jeremy and Diana!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Ms Diana and Mr Jeremy.

We meet Arjun in our last day in Chennai. We were looking to learn more about the history and places of the city. He was just perfect. He took us in his car to the best places, he listen what we were intereted in and maje plans to complish all we wanted. Even he spend more time that we planned to take us to the beach. He was kind, generous and feels like family in India. Chennai would not be the dame without him. We are very thankful and highly recommend him.

Arjun is an excellent guide. His prices are fair and he knows his stuff. He is good at organising anything that needs organising and provided me with a really good time in India. He is very flexible and always thinks positive.
