The tour guide was well informed and presented the information in an interesting manner. All the people in the group seem to have enjoyed the tour. I do have one comment. Though the tour was interesting I felt that the cost was a little high though for me that was not a factor.

Priya was a wonderful guide and storyteller! I learned from the entertaining way she told the different stories and the information stayed with me longer and became more ingrained because I heard it in story form. I would highly recommend Priya to guide your Chennai group!

We took the afternoon tour. From the moment the tour began, Swarna opened up an enthralling world of stories, that wove together history and legends both ancient and modern, as we heard stories about temple life, deities, bustling markets, kings and regents, poets and stone masons, weavers and more. These stories brought alive the iconography we were seeing on the... More

Our guide, Swaraprada Palaniswamy, was enchanting and kept us all enthralled with fascinating stories about each place, god, and structure we saw. She was also very thoughtful, as I was recovering from illness and she made sure I always had a place to sit. I highly recommend Storytrails - the stories will enhance your appreciation of India's cultural heritage.

This tour is a great way to gain a different appreciation for the city of Madurai. Although this town can seem a bit charmless outside of the temple, our time with Priya really helped bring out more local character, and also gave wonderful new insight into the key deities worshipped at Meenakshi Temple. It would get a 5/5 from me... More

Thank you very much for a great tour. Our guide crafted the tour to find examples of ancient history, as well as relevant contemporary issues (during our visit to Tamil Nadu the Jallikattu issue was going on). Our guide related to us very well, and I felt we developed a good rapport. Perceptively she located refreshments for us at just... More

As usual Storytrails do not disappoint and a very good introduction to Madurai through storytelling ! Weaving our way through the busy streets near the temple, Priya was able to captivate my attention with her tales ! If there were any way to spend just a short time inside the Menakshi temple (i realize that not all parts of the... More
