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.

We did two Storytrails tours in Chennai: British Blueprints and the Bazaar trail. Both were excellent, with delightful and knowledgeable guides. The British Blueprints ended up being mainly in the car, apart from walking around Fort St. George, because of the crowds that weekend. The Bazaar tour was on foot and very hot and sticky, but fascinating nonetheless, and the individual headsets meant that you didn't miss a word of what the guide was saying. I would definietly recommend these tours and I am sure that the others are equally good - may thanks to both Lakshmi and Akila for giving us such a great introduction to Chennai.
