Exploring Chennai

Filter Coffee Tours (FCT) could very well turn out to be Chennai's way of improving the tourist experience in the city. With the increase in business visitors, tourists and NRIs, there is a definite demand for professional tour operators. Lot of these visitors could look for customized tours and thats where tour operators like Filter Coffee Tours can make a mark. FCT currently offers tours covering various places in and around Chennai. They also offer tours which offer a peek into some aspects of Chennai life.

A lot has been written about the success of Bangalore Walks, a company which operates walking tours in Bangalore. Most of the other cities have some sort of walking tours, but these walks have largely been one-off events and Bangalore Walks seems to have institutionalized this business. If new companies like FCT try to integrate walking tours into their portfolio, they can win over a wider audience.

  • Interesting. I always thought heritage (or otherwise) walk tours are a wonderful ideas for many of our places. There was also a Mylapore Heritage walk tour, maybe during the Mylai festival time.

  • wow! i sure miss 'namma madras' a lot. the next time i visit, i am SURELY going to do the rounds in the city once again and rediscover it. i hope the concept takes off. but for madras to become a tourist friendly city, the auto wallahs have to be tamed and the public transportation will have to improve.
