Take this tour! Great food, great company, so many sights to enjoy. This is such a great way to visit a city that is NOT about monuments, but about daily life and food. We had far ranging discussions with Praveena as we walked - from food sourcing to education, to jobs, to marriage, meanwhile sampling all sorts of different goodies.... More

We had fantastic evening trying such a variety of dishes. We went home absolutely satiated and keen to find more. The tour unveils some of the hidden gems of Indian street and fast food. A must do!

If someone had told me that I would be eating street food in India, I would have said "No way!" But that's exactly what we did on our foodie tour. Four of us followed our leader, the founder of the company, through the frenetic streets of Madurai, tasting many yummy things, some new, some old. I had the most delicious... More

While planning our trip to India, one of our targets was to know more about Indian food, and with this tour we have achieved it. Although we had been in Tamil Nadu for a few days already, and we had experienced food in local places, this tour showed us new dishes, tastes and cultural tips about how and what to... More

Three cheers for Pandian of Foodies Day Out of Madurai, India and the fabulous tour of all the small restaurants, food stalls, food carts and otherwise, where the locals know they serve the best food in town. He was an informed and delightful tour guide, who's love of the food of his home city is definitely obvious. Throw away all... More

India in general (and Tamil Nadu in particular) lends itself very well to cheap eats. As a foreigner, the problem is always finding the best spots. This tour solves that problem and does much more than that. Beyond the actual food, Praveena took us through dimly-lit alleyways, crowded city streets and to hundred-year-old dosai restaurants. And it wasn't just your... More

I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Absolutely worth the price. Our friendly guide, Praveena, had impressive familiarity with the food culture of Madurai. She took us to spots that we would never have discovered on our own, and ordered dishes that we might not have thought to try. Definitely come hungry, and pace yourself. There's more good food than... More

we spent last night with Pandian and enjoyed it a lot. he took us to so many different places that we would have never discovered ourselves. it is a great way to get to know the city from a different perspective. even if you might think it is a little expensive - go for it, you won't regret it!

This tour took me into places I would never have ventured into on my own, providing real insight into the food and culture of Madurai. The variety was fantastic and the guide was a great conversationalist as well!

We had a wonderful (and delicious) time with our host Srisundar on our Foodies Day Out tour this month. We sampled a wide assortment of "street" food, from actual street stalls to small local restaurants that serve "quick bites." It was a great opportunity to eat local, away from the usual westernized tourist traps and inflated prices. Sri was an... More
