South Indian food tour, Kerala

Cook South Indian food as it is cooked at home. Kerala is the home of Muslims, Hindus and Syrians Christians, each offering a distinct cuisine. You can go to the market to buy the produce, catch the local fish and end up cooking a feast. One example of this is the Spice Plantation homestay. The farm and forest gardens are managed using traditional organic farming methods. Plants and spices grown on the farm supply the vegetarian cuisine prepared for the homestay - coconut, pineapple, bananas, different types of yam, tapioca, spices such as pepper, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, vanilla and other tropical fruit trees and medicinal herbs. Here you will pick the vegetables for the day ... Read more >

Rajasthan tailormade holiday

Rajasthan, the Desert State of India is patchwork of culture, history, languages, lifestyles and cuisine. Dialects change every 35 kilomentres and the cultures every 5! There’s a well trodden tourist route in Rajasthan – and it’s one we have attempted to avoid with this exotic tour, with exception of the Taj Mahal of course! We are able to arrange extentions to the itinerary. For example, Ranthambore, a former hunting preserve of the Maharajas of Jaipur. The reserve, with ravines and forests overlooked by an impressive eleventh-century fortress, is popular with tourists hoping to see tigers! Other options would be Bundi, is a small, friendly, elegant and filled with history - palaces, ... Read more >

Kerala backwaters tailor made holiday

If you're yearning authenticity, this is the tour for you. From the city of Kochi, to the mountains, backwaters and beaches, you’ll stay in home stays – such as Mundakkal home stay, Emerald Isle and Arakkal – that are extensions of peoples' homes and farms. In such places the whole family – and many of the villagers - are involved in preparing home cooked food made specifically for you, or taking you on walks, boat rides, swimming, or village shopping expeditions. It's not luxury – the beaches at the fishing village of Arakkal homestay are far from private or pristine. But you are immersed in the lives of Kerala fishermen and their families, and if you sleep under the porch at night, you ... Read more >

Indian Himalayas village homestay holiday

If you have ever wanted to live in, work and support an Indian village, here is your chance. In the green midranges of the Himalayas with a stunning backdrop of towering snow capped peaks lies the village of Samthar, tucked in a remote part of the mountains. The village stretches across 12 kms, with scattered homesteads loosely grouped into hamlets, adjacent to terraced farmland. The valley then plunges down steeply to the Samthar Khola (river). The people who live in Samthar are a blend of ethnic groups - Lepchas, Sherpas and Nepali - and have adopted Nepali as a link language, yet maintained their diverse cultural identity. We will collect you from Bagdogra airport and take you to ... Read more >
