Storytrails Madurai was an amazing experience; not only because of the efficient and very professional service, but above all for the passion and humanity related to it. We were able to sea places and corners that we would have otherwise just missed, or looked at without really knowing what the great story behind them was. We really enjoyed the walk... More

Prarthana rocked this tour! She was so good, completely captivating and her story delivery was excellent. Don't expect a city tour because it's not, it's something far, far better....

it could be just another temple and market visit. but then, with all the stories of mythology & history gave totally different colors and scents. the same statues and walls started to come alive. it was hot, really hot day. still I have to say it was very worthy of sweating so much. it was an unforgettable experience!

A great insight into... More

We went on the Once Upon a Madurai trail; it started pretty early in the morning, so weather was not a problem. It was a fun, informative trail; Swarna packs... More
