We spent a fabulous afternoon with Akila of Storytrails visiting a village just outside Madurai that we would never have discovered by ourselves. The next morning, we met with Akila and her associate Vandana who led us on a fascinating tour of Madurai itself. We started very early which meant that the sites we visited were almost deserted. Akila and Vandana told us tales of the gods, of Madurai, of history. Subsequently, as we made our way around southern India after our time in Madurai, things we had learned from Akila and Vandana all fell into place and we were very glad to have the background they gave us. After the tour was over, Akila was kind enough to take us to other places in Madurai just for the fun of it and we appreciated that. It was a pleasure to spend time with people who are so informed about Madurai and who are so pleasant and welcoming.

I attended this trail with my wife in Jan 13.They started at 7am in the morning ,took us walking around all the hidden places in madurai which would be otherwise very very crowded.The Guide was explaining everything in english.The guide had excellent information about each temple and statue which they took us around.They charged me Rs.500 for a 3 hour trip,i felt it was reasonable for the information they shared about madurai.Especially because this was my first visit to madurai.

We had a really interesting time @ story trail, dicovering sights and mythsical tales formerly unknown tho' I've lived im madurai during my childhood years.
The refreshing tender coconut break and the quaint rickshaw ride was fun.
We enjoyed Akila's humourous narrations.
Hope we have more new trails to come.
All the best, Rishwanth and Shuba!
