    Just back from a wonderful tour of Meenakshi Temple & Thirumalai Nayak Palace with our guide Mutha. Mutha was punctual, well organised, knowledgeable and friendly. We were picked up from our hotel in an A/C taxi at 8am taken on a well planned and informative tour of Meenakshi Temple. Mutha arranged for safekeeping of our valuables such as phone & smart watches during our visit as they are not permitted inside the temple. From there we went to the Palace. Again Mutha was knowledgeable about the history. Next we visited the Gandhi Museum (housed in a temporary building during renovation) and purchased Gandhi's autobiography for rs. 80. The stop at the market selling bananas was enjoyable, tasty & great photo opps. After that we ate a thali for lunch at Amman restaurant which was delicious and patiently explained to us by Muthu. The staff were efficient and polite and the restaurant & washroom were clean.
    After lunch we drove out to the pottery village about 7 km outside of Madurai. We heard from some of the women working there and found it interesting. Overall I would totally recommend this immersive cultural tour.

    We had the pleasure of embarking on a temple tour guided by mr Dhana Balan from start to finish, the experience was nothing short of enlightenment.Balan demonstrated an impressive depth of knowledge about each temple we visited. The history, architecture, spiritual significance added tremendous value to our tour. Balan ensured that ever aspect of our tour both educational and enjoyable. Balan expertise, passion and genuine warmth made this journey one that we will cherish for years to come

    The guide was very friendly and informative. We walked around several interesting market streets on the way from the palace to Sri Meenakshi temple that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. He is a fountain of information about the Sri Meenakshi temple, so you will learn a great deal about it with him.

    A comfortable car, driven by a good person, who arrived at the appointed time & was more than willing to assist us anytime during the tour. Had a good experience with Jamal in Rameshwaram and Dhanushkodi.

    Prakash is a knowledgeable and gracious guide. He is generous with his time and obviously has a deep understanding of the history and mythology of Madurai. His access to the inner areas of the Meenakshi Amman temple was the highlight of the tour. It was a simply fabulous evening

    We did an early morning walk in the lanes around the temple learning about the history, mythologies and religion. Swarna was a fascinating guide and took us at just the right pace, explaining everything clearly and with humour. Many memorable moments and little details that brought it all to life. Highly recommended.
