Southern India tour, temples & nature
The most memorable part was Orange county - feeling like a queen and wonderful safari. (more)Alex Silver
Excellent! (more)Jan Baker
Five stars! We had an incredible adventure for our honeymoon, and hope to go back. Southern India is breathtaking, and we had nothing but good experiences with all of the people and companies we traveled with. (more)Robyn Nadolny
From 494 excluding flights
South India holiday
Stay as long as you can, it will be too short. We had three weeks and wished it was longer. (more)Judith Myers
The holiday was completely wonderful in every way. The whole holiday was memorable beyond expectation but if I have to chose one element that was most memorable it's the organiser Ravi Kumar and his wonderful family at Aakriti who treated me like a loved family member (more)Nelson Jeannette
It was fascinating to experience a little part of this remarkable mixture. The visit to the backwaters - which included 24 hours on our boat - was particularly worthwhile. This is an area of lakes, rivers and small canals quite unlike any other we have visited. (more)John Burley
From 1851 excluding flights
South India by rail holiday
We very much enjoyed this holiday, completely met and often exceeded our expectations. (more)Carole Noble
An amazing way to get an insight into the many sides of India. Trains are a brilliant way to see the countryside and talk to Indian people. The tour company was the most helpful travel company I have ever dealt with and I highly recommend using them. (more)David Jelley
The most memorable part of the holiday was staying in some fabulous homestays. Arriving at the first one, Nelpura, Moncompu in a canoe felt like royalty. (more)Clair Butler
From 1760 excluding flights
History, culture & wildlife of India holiday
The most exciting part was not on the original programme. We asked Rajat to give us somewhat more nature and less culture. He arranged for us to spend a day and two nights in a resort on the Kabini Lake, across from the Nagarhole National Park. On a boat safari at dusk, amidst myriad birds and beasts, we saw a male tiger emerging muddily from the river, slinking into the jungle. (more)Robin Fox
Excellent, we enjoyed it all. The two home stays were an amazing part of our trip. Take the plunge and travel on an overnight train with shared accommodation. It's a great experience. (more)Caroline Powell
The most memorable parts were staying at the home of the Kumars, visiting Golden Temple at Amritsar and WildFlower Hall...Outstanding. (more)Andrew Hollas
From 1336 excluding flights
South India small group tour
The most memorable were - Staying on the houseboat on the Kerala backwaters, the rickshaw ride through Madurai, dipping my feet in the Indian Ocean at the southern most tip of India, eating curry with my fingers off a banana leaf and the cookery lesson at Peryar. (more)Sylvia Wilson
Best bits: Mysore, Madurai, Chennai Government Museum, Mahabalipuram, Kerala Backwaters (houseboat trip), Pondicherry Market, Martial Arts at Kumily (more)Charles Moberly
It was to see at last places that were high on my bucket list. My trip was South India Explored. (more)Diane Norman
From 1999 - 2899 including UK flights
