Dhanabalan Is an awesome tour guide!! He knows a lot of the Madurai history. The tour was very entertaining. We went to the main temple in Madurai, to a palast and to the market. We also went to have some of the most famous beverage in Madurai. He got a very good photos of me and the landscape :). Thank you Dhanabalan for being my tour guide and making me enjoy this beautiful city!

I totally recommend you all to have this tour if you are in Madurai!

Meenakshi temple was always a dream for me and I was able to fulfill it today. But this visit to the temple would not have been as fulfilling and informative had I not signed up for the free walking tour with Dhanabalan!!!

Mr Dhanabalan took me and my husband for a evening ritual tour at the temple. We were simply amazed by his knowledge of even the minutest details. We were also impressed by his eagerness to explain any doubts we had. He was super informative and extremely humble. He went out of his way to ensure we got to see the ceremony from the most vintage point and I can't thank him enough for going above and beyond his job requirements to make sure we go back with the best experience .

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dhanabalan. I will surely recommend anyone reading this review to do temple tour only with Dhanabalan.
