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

The service from start to finish was excellent. We booked this tour in the UK and our emails were answered promptly and everything ran smoothly. The tour involves walking and being driven to various street food and small food vendors in Madurai. The idea is that you sample the local delicacies and 'must try's' in Madurai. This is a must...

Foodies Day Out is a really fun way to spend an evening in Madurai and the chance to sample small restaurants and street stands that you'd never pick out for yourself. Although we only ate smallish amounts in each place, by the end of the evening we were very full indeed. And despite being keen foodies who have travelled a... More

We had the best fun last night in Madurai on the Foodies Day Out with Mukunthan as our guide. We did the tour with another couple from Italy. Mukunthan was wonderful and took us to 6 different food spots all over Madurai - with adjustments to the route to avoid the heavy rain. We had a mix of savoury and... More

Hard to know what to rate first, the food or the company of Mukanthan , both were excellent! Having eaten lots of South Indian food I wondered what special delights were in store, Mukanthan took us to 9 different places, small (??) servings to allow for lots of sampling. Some of the things we enjoyed were cotton seed juice from... More

We got to try loads of delicious South Indian food and it was catered really well for us as vegetarians. Our guide Mukunthan was great, really enthusiastic and a genuine foody! Anyone going through madurai who likes food should definitely do this tour!

This food tour was a standout highlight of two months in South India. It was a real treat, highly recommend! Pandian was great company and the food was fantastic.

My partner and I have just had the most fantastic fun evening sampling some of the finest south indian and in particular Madurai dishes from idly to mutton dosa to the most delicious "hand churned" icecream. Our host was a true gent! Extremely informative a pleasure to be with. What a great way to dispel the myths of what you... More

My boyfriend and I are no strangers to food tours; we believe that the best way to experience a culture is first through its cuisine. Our modus operandi: on the first day in a new place, sample as much as possible. In countries where we are unfamiliar with the language or customs, we book a tour early on (this ensures... More

Must do for anyone who wants a crash course on the best food Madurai has to offer. Pandian took the time to understand our palate preferences before his selection of food carts and restaurants for our tour. He met us at our hotel and brought us to his favourite local eateries. He introduced us to a good mix of Indian... More
