This was a a great way to pass a few hours, hearing more about the history and culture of Madurai. I think the tour works particularly well for people who don't know much about Madurai or the panoply of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. Discovering hidden gems in backstreets was a highlight.

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!
