I booked the Peacock Trail walking tour in Chennai, India though Trip Advisor, with about 12 hours notice. The guide showed up on time.and provided an excellent description of what I was seeing, including extensive cultural tidbits not often heard on these programs.
Although billed as a walking tour, it is not overly so and an auto-rickshaw and significant snack enough for my lunch are included. i was also told that they offer this and other tours with Airport pick-up, for those on layover.

A real pleasure! The tour completely lived up to expectations.
From the outset Veejay our guide set a light humorous tone yet gave us excellent historical detail and charming folksy stories.
As we ambled around the area he answered many questions and explained all sorts of sights as we passed them.
We particularly liked the way he positioned himself and his family in the mix so that there was a closer attachment to the culture in front of us.
We shall use this company in Madurai if we can.
Thank you.

This was a great tour of Kapaleeswarar temple and surrounding area including a priest's traditional house, a tuk-tuk ride to St Thomas' Basilica and back, and tiffin in a local restaurant.Our guide, Vijay, was excellent in every way and provided great stories about the origin of the city Mylapore, the gods and other deities, and spiritual practices both in and out of the temples. This is a great way to see Chennai in a safe environment and I highly rate Vijay and Storytrails india.

We had the most wonderful time with our guide Mrs. Akila. She tells with lots of passion about her city. Don't expect an 'ordinary' guided tour around the main seeings of Chennai, but she will introduce you to a lot of different aspects of Indian lifestyle, religion, food etc.
MUST-DO in Chennai!!!

I flew into Chennai to attend a wedding. Because my trip was so brief, I had one free day a walking tour sounded like the perfect way to explore the city. The Peacock Walking Tour takes you to two well known places in Mylapore - Arulmigu Kapaleeswarar Temple and San Thome Basilica - but it's a great way to learn about the history and people of Chennai. Vijay was a charismatic and knowledgeable guide, and the group was small and leisurely enough to allow for plenty of Q and A. My favorite part was meeting a temple priest in his own home, a nice addition that other tours do not offer. The dosa and coffee at the end of a tour capped off a perfect afternoon.

The tour was well-organized and fun. I live in Mylapore, yet I hadn't heard a lot of the stories we were told! Our guide Vijay was professional, friendly, and keep us engaged with a lot of stories. The logistics was managed well - I was especially impressed that a line of auto rickshaws were waiting for us and we didn't have to wait around.
