My partner and I traveled to Madurai in Dec 2015. Foodies day out was a lovely eve with three other guests from Austria and the US. We covered quite a few number of places in 3.5 hours. We were advised to skip lunch in the anticipation of the eve and were therefore quite hungry! The portions ordered were moderate, which... More

Foodies day out is simply fun! If you enjoy tasting new food and are curious about what is being sold by street vendors and local restaurants this is for you.

Just imagine you are friends with a local who picks you and takes you around town to sample the best street food and little restaurants cooking their number one dish. Let me introduce you to Pandian and his Foodies Tour of Madurai. You must do this tour, cancel whatever else you were planning.

First of all I would like to recommend, not to have a big breakfast/lunch before doing this tour. Otherwise you will regret it! This tour is a must for every traveller who loves food. You will explore many different tastes. Some of the dishes are only available in Madurai and nowhere else! And don't worry about your health. The foodie... More

An experience that is a must for every traveler to Madurai. The endless variety of food that is simply mouth watering and never being heard of. Be it the local restaurants or street food, the hygiene level is totally taken care of keeping the international travelers in mind. You connect yourself with the local people as well as the savouries....... More

The idea is very attractive but it's too expensive and not well-organized. We had to pay 2000INR each (group of six). Im sure we should not have to pay more than 500INR - 600INR each.

Dear JaviGSant, We are sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. However we have to remind you that the unexpected and nonseasonal rain played spoiled sport that evening. We have already deployed 4 umbrellas permanently in the tour car. Regarding the price, we run the cheapest food tour in the country. Normally we take you to at-least... More

Operated by Pandian his wife and two friends as a passion for sharing Madurai's food treats with visitors, this tour was such a great way to try so many of Madurai's specialties and have lots of fun while doing it as Pandian zipped us around in his little car stopping roadside to jump out and taste some new dish including...

Had a nice evening out with a good guide. If you havn't tried south-indian food before and dont know what to eat, do the tour if you can afford it. Otherwise use the tour cost on the food yourself!
