A culture and foodie’s delight
This is a great company with guides who take you on a journey through the streets of India. We did foodie tours and history tours in Chennai, Pondicherry and Madurai with Story Trails. All were great. We tasted some great food in Chennai and felt very confident with our host’s choices. A great insight to culture and food.
