Tour Overview

Southern India is a destination going from strength to strength in popularity and to participate on this incredible adventure is to understand why. The southern states offer a rich heritage ethnically and culturally distinct from that of northern India. Palm-fringed seashores, fertile rice fields, upland tropical forests, intricately carved temples and calm ocean lagoons complete the picture. A two-night houseboat journey along the picturesque backwaters of Kerala, the best in Indian temple art at Mahabalipuram, and the spectacular Maharaja's Palace in Mysore are just some of the highlights of our this trip.

Everything was new for me and I enjoyed every single thing that we did. My very favourite excursion was the elephant ride and of course I loved the resort at Mameallapuram. I also enjoyed the surprise harbour cruise in Cochin

Delores F. (Salinas, CA, US)

Jonathan is the best tour leader we ever had in all our years of travel. We would seek out any tours he might be leading in the future. He is even-tempered, never visibility stressed, so friendly and humorous. His knowledge of India is great

Sara Vida May G. (Hampton. ON, CA)

I had an overall amazing trip that was truly a trip of a life time. My eyes have been opened and I place India in an entirely new categorize - India is an unbelievably gorgeous country geographically, culturally, religiously and most off all it is the people that make it beautiful!
