Overview

Story-based walking tours and short excursions that zig-zag through the beat and the pulse of the city; from its oldest parts to its busy bazaars, through dance and art to its rural heart. Unlike sight-seeing tours, these trails focus on the everyday sights on the streets - the local customs, symbolisms and the fascinating stories behind the mundane rituals of life. Hosted by a team of articulate storytellers, these trails are an enjoyable way for visitors to appreciate the local way of life. Pick from nine different tours in Chennai.

I enjoyed the walk for the way it was conducted - leisurely pace and storytelling. I have had many questions on Hinduism beliefs and practices, and the walking tour provided answers to my questions. Overall the walk was informative and interesting.More
