    Good but could have been better

    Overall we enjoyed the excursion. However there were a few disappointing aspects. We had exchanged messages beforehand with the manager of the excursion provider including a late request for a change to the programme. However there was no response to that and the request had not been passed on to our guide. The guide was a very nice young student doing the job part time as he prepared for his exams. He was reasonably knowledgeable but not at the level of all the other guides we had during our shore excursions. There was no visit to the cashew factory as it was a Sunday BUT we were not informed in advance that this would be the case.

    The guide was an amazing, fantastic young educated lady. The places she took us were unexpectedly wonderful. She explained and showed us places that were perfect for the amount of time and walking. We were very lucky to have this guide. Her education was superb, and she understood exactly what we like. We were very impressed with this guide that made the visit to Mangalore the best visit!

    The whole tour is filled with highlights, but the ones that especially stood out were the visit to the cashew nut factory, the St Aloysius Chapel and Kadri Majunantha Temple. The tour guide, Gaywain Lasrado and our driver were fantastic, willing and flexible to show us many more of Mangalore's treasures, e.g. fish market and Tannirubavi Beach.

    The private tour was amazing. Viator has never disappointed us for value promptness and reliability. We were met right outside cruise port gate by guide in native dress with private car parked in a few feet away. Great private tour with much personal attention. Thanks again

    Excellent tour with a fun guide! Enjoyed the lunch and the 3 litre Kingfisher jugs! The market was fun with all,the different produce and the heat and noise. Had a pair of shoes lifted at the Hindu temple but didn't spoil the day at all. The cashew factory was amazing.
