What I remember most from such holidays, are the tales and this evening, with Priya as our guide, is going to be unforgettable for this reason. We did the Once upon a Madurai walk.

Our guide S Priya was friendly and professional. She showed flexibility and sympathy to meet our special needs. The tour guide audio system used by Story Trail means you can follow the guide at your own pace and still be able to listen to the commentary. In crowded, noisy streets like Madurai it is a great asset.

What a very good way to get introduced to the city. Professional yet personal. A very different and more colourful aproach to guided tours.

Awesome & Interesting Presentation. Couldn't have enjoyed Madurai better with its fascinating history & myths. what is fascinating is that Dr.Priya has a post graduate degree in Oral pathology. I do wonder if that field has lost out on a passionate & vociferous contributor to that field. Thank you Priya for the lovely evening.

Our tour was engaging and totally fun. We learned a lot and our guide was friendly, flexible, patient and truly knowledgeable. The early morning is quiet and cooler. Just right!

Very nice way to learn about the history and myth of old Madurai. A nice walk in the early morning in the old part of town filled with interesing and funny stories. You visit places you Woud normally never visit. The storyteller speaks very good English.
