We had a great time! We saw a temple, some local homes, and the remains of st. thomas. I got so much more out of hearing the background of the sites. Our guide has such a gift for providing amusing anecdotes in such a way which blended theology which the things we are seeing.

It is lovely to know that you got so much out of the trail. :) We do try to give people a context for what they're seeing, and we're glad to know that it helped make your visit richer.

We went with a big group on the peacock trail with our guide A/Equilla (names are quite difficult). We had a great time. The headsets are soooo useful! The guide had great stories and we talked not just about all the temples but also living in India and Chennai in general.

Dear Wouter, Akila is fascinated by your spelling of her name - in fact, she is quite tempted to change it to Equilla! Thank you very much for your kind words - we're delighted to hear you enjoyed the Peacock Trail, the temple, and the tales of life in Chennai. We hope to see you on more trails too! Thanks, Storytrails
