South India holiday
The holiday was fantastic. There isn't anything we could fault, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the company to anyone. The organisation, attentiveness and flexibility to suit our preferences was second to none. (more)Peter Stimpson
Kerala was incredible from start to finish. As we came to each destination the only word that fit was ' paradise' (more)Samantha Smith
A holiday to suit a wide age range. Safe, friendly and we were able to learn so much about the culture of Kerala. One of the best holidays. 10/10 (more)Joanna Allman
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
I have told the holiday provider that they do a great job . (more)Joel Montague
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
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
