    Today i joined the Pune heritage walk. Sanket was my guide. He really told a lot of nice stories about the city and its temples. I really enjoyed the tour

    The tour was very well organized. Stops for tea, visits, lunch were well planned. I really appreciated Sanket's explanations on the city of Pune and on all the three sites that we visited, especially the history about Sinhagad Fort. Although we did have fresh air and beautiful views at the two dams, I was quite disappointed by the dams because there was not much to see.

    Overall, I did enjoy the whole day of visit and highly recommend this tour.

    I am not really a bird-watcher but instead just like to experience different cultures and get out of the city and into nature. The car ride is long and we stopped along the way on the side of the road for some coffee. The boat ride was great and we were able to see many species of birds, including flamingos and storks. There were not a lot of flamingos due to the time of year, so be thoughtful to that if that is the goal. After the sanctuary we went to a temple which was constructed with all hand carved stones - it was beautiful. Overall, great day - 8 hours total to and from hotel.

    I had a great day visiting Sinhagad Fort! It was convenient to have a pick-up at the hotel. Javed was my guide, and he was very nice and easy going. He told me a lot about the Fort which mad it very interesting. I could ask him all questions, and he had nice stories. It was good that we went in the morning, because later on the day it became very crowded. You have a very scenic view from the fort. It was also nice to see the Kadakwasla Lake.

    We booked the tour relatively last minute - and on our requested date we could only get a driver without a guide, as it was also a festival on that day. Obviously, having a guide as well would have been better, but it was a good tour nevertheless and we are happy the agency was still able to offer us something! The driver's English was sufficient to agree on times, places and what we do. Some of the explanations we got from the security guards on site.

    Pros:
    Private tour, so possible to stay as long as needed in every place. We made some adjustments to points of interest (skipping Vax museum and only stopping for bathroom break at Mapro). We also did a bit more walking around Bushi dam, and in our experience the nicest part was actually from the pathway to the left, exploring beautiful lush green area (not sure why anyone would want to see the actual dam?!). We didn't walk the entire way to the waterfall as it was looking like it was going to rain (and it shortly did :) ) and I would have liked to stay a bit longer another time.

    Cons:
    As mentioned above, we decided to skip some areas. Potentially the gaps in itinerary could be filled with more sites of interest then? As we felt like it would have been nice to stay at Lion's Point event later, and we did drive to the further point as well on our request afterwards.
    My Indian friends told me that price for tour perhaps could be smaller, especially since there were three of us. For us it didn't make a big difference to pay per person and not per car, but if you are on a budget, you may want to consider this.

    Beware of:
    Selfie seeking tourists. Honestly, I felt like bringing a bodyguard with me, as I was being harassed by "selfie plz" requests by both men and women. It was easily 50 people who requested this and while first 10 was ok, by the 20th we started running away from them and you cannot sit in peace for a moment, as they would sit all around us, grabbing at us, requesting more and more pictures. We have seen it in other places in India, but here #selfiewithaforeigner was a whole new level.

    What to take with:
    Wet wipes to clean your feet after caves and temples.
    Water, drink (or plan to eat in cafes, as no food is included)
    Umbrella and/or rain jacket, waterproof shoes.
    Some of the sights are very beautiful, but then there is garbage right under your feet. So I would say no open toe shoes.

    For whom this is suitable:
    If you are working in Pune, this is a nice weekend day trip.
    Fitness level moderate - not wheelchair accessible, the only climb was Karla caves, but one can take it as slow, as needed.

    This trip was recommended by Vikrant since I have mentioned to him that I have no itinerary for my 2 days here in Mumbai. We did already the 1st one and that was the Mumbai tour that I recommended to everyone. Well believe me on the spot decision of having this tour to Lonavala was never a regret to me. At first I had a doubt of taking it since no one had given a review, but I swear it turned to be a very lovely trip. I was lucky enough that two tour guides were there with me Vikrant and Sameer and of course our number driver Ram. It was comfortable being with them the whole trip for they were very open and sensitive to what my gender is. Yes, you have read it right I'm a transgender and they have accepted and respected me of what I am. So yes, for my LGBTQ families out there, they are the one's who'm you'll book your trip with, they are real and they've got lots of philosophies in life to share with for short they are very humorous that you won't feel bored. You have to consider these factors because it's a long trip and you need someone who are jolly and nice to converse with and that is totally them. It will perfectly blend with the long and winding road to Lonavala, visiting the historical tourist sights of Western India. For more details of our trip from Mumbai to Lonavala, feel free to check my page.
