    This was a full auditory, visual and especially culinary experience. Don’t eat in advance as there is plenty of delicious food. Lakshmi expertly, attentively and with real passion introduced us to local food from over a half a dozen specialist sources. The food was delicious

    Hello, Thank you for your review. We loved having you on the Food trail, and were more than happy to introduce you to the scrumptious street food in Sowcarpet. Bondas are a favourite amongst our team here as well. :) We also do food trails in Pondicherry and Madurai. So do check them out if you're ever visiting. Apart from that, we do several other trails around local culture, customs, and history in Chennai, Pondicherry, Trivandrum and Madurai. And we'll be launching trails in Mumbai and Cochin soon. Cheers, The Storytrails Team
