My friend and I had a wonderful time on the Peacock Trail with our guide Akila. It was just us two and her, which was really nice, as we were able to get to know each other a bit. She was incredibly knowledgeable, and a wonderful storyteller. Her sense of humour was fantastic! We went to a temple dedicated to Shiva, and explored it and the surrounding streets (including into an old style house that the priest of the temple lives in and gave permission for us to have a look - this style of house is really uncommon in the city now that it's all being built up). We also went to the cathedral that is supposedly built over the grave of St Thomas. Akila brought all these stories to life in a totally memorable way. I would recommend her and Storytrails to anyone in a heartbeat!

We booked two tours with Storytrails. Both guides were fantastic. Not only did we see the sites we were hoping for but we learned so much about culture. Both the Bazaar and temples (peacock) were places where locals go. When I shared what I learned anout Chennai culture with Indian colleagues they were impressed that it was fair and accurate. This is not reciting a script - it is a deep understanding on how to share your own culture which can be surprisingly difficult. Both women made sure everyone found a safe return trip (which can be overwhelming). They were fantastic over phone and email. Highest ratings!

Lakshmi made our trip to India very colorful. She told wonderful insightful stories and was really accommodating all through out. After the tour, whenever we go around, it's hard not to recall the stories and meanings behind what used to be random symbols, markings, traditions that you blatantly see on the streets. India has too rich of a culture to miss this tour. I don't think any other tour company would do the same justice.
