Discover tranquil South India and Kerala, characterised by coconut palm-fringed backwaters, tea plantations and sleepy fishing villages.
A tour of South India is a true feast for the senses! Travellers to this lush, green region will discover charming colonial towns, flamboyant temples, beautiful beaches, meandering rivers and exotic spices, grown on rural estates and infused in the local cuisine.
With its palm-fringed beaches, gentle green hills, emerald rice paddies and warm, spice laden air, our South India and Kerala tours offer a fascinating contrast to India’s north. Cruise by houseboat on the tranquil lagoons of Kerala, or relax at a world-class Ayurveda retreat. Discover the massive, flamboyant Hindu temples of Tamil Nadu, including the colourful Meenakshi Temple at Madurai, or the intricate temples at Kanchipuram. Nature lovers can enjoy wildlife safari in the region’s wonderful national parks. For a completely unique experience, consider taking the luxury ‘Golden Chariot’ train to South India’s many sights. Alternatively, choose a “Secret Hideaway” like the lavish Taj Falakhuma Palace at Hyderabad or the tranquil Purity at Lake Vembanad in Kerala.
