Review of Storytrails

Storytrails
Ranked #1 of 36 Tours in Chennai (Madras)
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Story-based walking tours and short excursions that zig-zag through the beat and the pulse of the city; from its oldest parts to its busy bazaars, through dance and art to its rural heart. Unlike sight-seeing tours, these trails focus on the everyday sights on the streets - the local customs, symbolisms and the fascinating stories behind the mundane rituals of life. Hosted by a team of articulate storytellers, these trails are an enjoyable way for visitors to appreciate the local way of life. Pick from nine different tours in Chennai.

Thanks Lakshmi for helping me understand so much more about Hindu customs and revealing so much of the rich Mylepore history. LOVED your tour!

I have lived in Chennai for a decade and have heard that Parrys is an area where you cant even think of stepping in...with Storytrails' expedition, we gathered courage to witness the busiest wholesale market of Chennai...and we cannot go wrong when are with Ms. Lakshmi - one of the best hosts known to us...It was a 200% amazing and enriching experience for us...with loads of stories beautifully woven and delivered....interesting products at incredibly low prices....vintage houses...lovely smiles of people in the bazaar...welcoming attitude and pride in demonstrating their businesses running from several generations...the bazaar demonstrating varied colors, people with different walks of life...some sad stories yet eye-opening ones...kudos to the Storytrails team for the beautiful experience!

For the past few years, Storytrails has been helping our school Discover India week, showing students the various cultures and customs of Chennai. Together, we explored the bustling bazaar, farms and country roads, we've sautéed spices, and sen the architectural blueprints of the city. Storytrails always presents history and culture through engaging narrative, teaching both students and teachers the wonders of Chennai and Tamil life. We are always grateful for all they do and eagerly looking forward to the next time.

If you want real local, cultural and historical perspective of Mylapore then this is time and money very well spent.
