An interesting way to see a city. It was more fun than your usual guided tour. Our guide was a good story teller, friendly and well informed.

Brigitte Konradt

If you love stories, history and walking you will love this tour. A wonderful relaxed blend of stories, gossip and history matched to easily walkable locations in Pondicherry White Town.


Hi, a great job all of you are doing….my son eagerly waits for the workshops….he is thoroughly enjoying it!

Poornima Shanker

We loved it! It is a 2 hour story walk through the streets of Mylapore, where you also get to see and understand how master craftsmen create the exquisite pieces that get displayed on the jewelry shop.

This was a first class tour! We have a British family history in Madras so getting to hear all the stories from the 1780s through independence was fascinating.


What an honour, and pleasure, to be guests in a Bharathanatyam dancer’s house. And see the artist dancing in front of us. And listen to an excellent story teller describing the sacred origin of the dance, the infinite nuances of the performer’s gestures, with their evident or hidden significances. I’ll keep in my memory the beauty of that experience.
