We had a very nice evening with our guide Srisundar and another couple. Booking and pickup from the hotel worked perfect. We tried overall around 20 different dishes that night in approx. 10 different places (both Restaurants and Street Stalls). We covered a very wide range of food and learned a lot about ingredients and preparation. Without this tour we... More

This is a 'not to be missed' tour in Madurai. Mukunthan and his brother gave us a very special night in Madurai. Firstly, it felt as if we were out on the town with our best friends. Within a few minutes you feel as if you have known them all your life. The conversation and the places they took us... More

Amazing food tour. Srisundar is a lovely host who took us to an amazing variety of sweet, pungent, salty, astringent and bitter foods at places we never would have known about or gone to. Wonderful tour

Wow. What an evening! Yes- it's expensive but it's very well worth it! If you have a hankering to try South Indian street food but are not sure what to order or feeling a bit nervous about getting sick then this is the tour for you! Praveena and Mukunthan are just lovely and they carefully guide you through the streets... More

There is not much to add that has not already been said, but to simply say that our experience was as satisfying and enjoyable as the reviews that we relied on indicated. The walking with pandian, through the night streets of Madurai, was as interesting as the food. The food was located largely in spots we would never have known... More

Although this was one of the most expensive things we did in India (1500 rupees per person), I would really recommend it. We tried at least 20 different dishes all over town and got to learn loads about the local food. We definitely tried food and ate in restaurants we'd never have found or gone into. The absolute highlight for... More

Don't miss this delicious food tour with Praveena and Mukunthan when in Madurai - in fact it's even worth visiting this city just for this fabulous food tour! The small group traveled by private car to several amazing food outlets including cafes, restaurants, sweet shops, street food vendors and many places only a local foodie would know about. The food... More

We absolutely loved our Foodies Day Out tour. We were toured around Madurai and taken to a variety of street food stalls and small restaurants to sample the signature dish at each. We were taken to places we never would have found on our own and tried food we wouldn't even have known existed. It was great to have a... More

We had a really nice tour with Pandian, besides all the good food we could try, we learned how to eat with the hand (otherwise cutlery has always been served) and how different the Indian food can be. The perfect way to learn everything about Madurai and Tamil Nadu food and to ask a lot of questions about the Indian... More
