      Storytrails - great tour guides
      I do not post many reviews but I really wanted to say how incredible the Storytrails team are. I had a tour in Chennai and one in Madurai with separate guides and both were briliant. Knowledgeable, interesting and infinitely patient (I asked a LOT of questions) the guides made the tours both fun and informative. I really cannot recommend them highly enough. Nick

      Fun facts and informed insight!
      We can't speak highly enough of this tour. Lakshmi is an engaging, knowledgeable and highly skilled guide; she imparts her knowledge in a fun and accessible way. We learned so much about the market, it's people and history and the goods on sale without feeling lectured. Stories are a brilliant way of immersing you in a culture, and by the end of the tour we felt we had properly experienced a little bit of India thanks to this delightful guide and excellent itinerary.

      Eat Your Way thrrough the Sowcarpet Market
      My guide was knowledgeable and engaging. We visited eateries with a long history of operation in Sowcarpet Market and tasted the signature offering of each. My guide had warm relationships with the owners of each place we stopped to enjoy snacks. She also knew many shopkeepers along the way and introduced me to a variety of interesting shops. She was expert at negotiating the heavy pedestrian and wheeled traffic as we made our way from one stop to the next.

      One of the highlights of our travels in India
      We undertook both the food trail and the Peacock trail with Lakshmi and had a wonderful time. Storytelling is such a fabulous way to learn about a culture - and fabulous stories they were too. We would recommend BOTH tours.

      Hindu Temple and priest's home
      We toured the Hindu temple and visited in a priest's home. Lakshmi knew everyone and made the visit very personal. Gave us a deep understanding of Hindu relition and the role of the temple and priests

      Wonderful and enlightening
      Lakshmi was an engaging and talented storyteller who weaved her magical anecdotes throughout the tour. She was wonderful at sharing her knowledge and answering questions throughout the Mylapore tour. I loved that we were able to experience the early morning devotee rituals without being intrusive to the rituals and practices and she was excellent at explaining the intricacies of Hinduism through her own experiences and wonderful humour.

      Awesome cultural experience
      Our guide, Lakshmi, was very gracious and patient as we walked through the market. Always ready to adjust the schedule or food choices if requested. She told great stories along the way that really helped to make the experience come to life. My son & I will forever remember the great time in Chennai. I would definitely recommend it, and do it again.

      Great tour of the market in George Town!
      Great informative tour, we learn a lot on the history of Chennai, indian food (especially feom the south), customs, etc. Our guide Lakshmi was really good and professional. Her explanations were clear, her English was excellent and she provided always just the right level of information. Communication with the company was also excellent. Would totally recommend to people visiting Chennai.

      Fabulous tour with Storytrails
      Had a food tour in Chennai around George Town with Storytrails. The tour guide Lakshmi was so interesting and knowledgeable - about the food, culture and answering all our questions too! The food was delicious and overall it was simply great fun. One of our highlights visiting Chennai. Definitely recommend to others.

      Excellent Storytelling and Service
      Our host, Lakshimi pays great attention to her guests and makes sure everyone is comfortable. All details are cared for, and she is very aware of the details in the temples and churches and able to show them to the tourists.

      Thanks again !!
      We just got back from a visit to Georgetown and really had a great time. Lots of clear detailed information about everything and it was really funny. I definitely recommend it if you want to discover a typical Chennai neighborhood and really immerse yourself in Indian culture. Thanks again Lakshmi!

    I've taken this tour 3 times over the last 5 years during various business trips to Chennai and I loved everyone of them! Lakshmi is a fantastic story teller, delivering an engaging history of the temples and surrounding area of Mylapor. If all of the tours they offer are like this one, you can expect an engaging experience.

    We went with a big group on the peacock trail with our guide A/Equilla (names are quite difficult).

    We had a great time. The headsets are soooo useful! The guide had great stories and we talked not just about all the temples but also living in India and Chennai in general.

    All the transport and food was very well arranged (which in India is an amazing job based on all my other experiences during our 3 weeks there).

    Would recommend to everybody, also her English was very easy to understand.

    Dear Wouter, Akila is fascinated by your spelling of her name - in fact, she is quite tempted to change it to Equilla! Thank you very much for your kind words - we're delighted to hear you enjoyed the Peacock Trail, the temple, and the tales of life in Chennai. We hope to see you on more trails too! Thanks, Storytrails

    Lakshmi is so charming and knowledgeable! We learned all about the the bazaar, the many amazing spices and vegetables, the buildings and met many people along the way.. She took great care of us so we didn't slip in the street or get trampled by the astounding traffic - we are old hands at the honking and the aggressive driving, but Lakshmi helped keep us safe.

    When my wife booked the “Peacock Trail” tour, I went along, expecting it to be one of those many walking tours, that we have taken in the past.But nothing prepared me for what followed. Lakshmi our Tour Advisor, met us punctually at the appointed time and explained the programme. We were all very impressed by her friendly and pleasant demeanour and quite taken up by the way she took us through the tour. Her deft storytelling , recounting of fascinating facts and trivia, interspersed with interesting anecdotes, had us all hanging on to her every word !!! She answered all our queries patiently and clearly and cleared the air on many aspects and practices, that we were not aware of, or just followed, without really realising the true significance. In short Lakshmi was a treasure trove of information !!! Our 10 year old granddaughter who was with us simply couldn’t stop talking about the tour, much after it finished. There are many interesting places on this planet, that we might have visited, but what makes them that much more interesting and memorable, are those dedicated Tour Advisors, who take us there and guide us through, recounting the tales and trivia with such passion and pride !!! For us the Mylapore and San Thome walking tour was a one of a kind experience and we have Lakshmi to thank, for making it that much more special and unforgettable. Thank you Story Trails and keep it up!!!

    Lakshmi was an excellent tour guide - knowledgeable, friendly, and catered the material well to our specific group. Our family walked away feeling like we had a newfound appreciation and understanding of key places in Chennai, despite all of us being Tamilians ourselves who have visited the city many times! We would recommend this tour to anyone, either a local who wants a fresh perspective on new places, or someone new looking to learn about Chennai for the first time.
