Enchanting and Exotic South India

Lush tropical landscapes, neat colourful villages, world-renowned temple complexes, gorgeous heritage accommodation, and a subtle, distinctive cuisine are highlights of this tour. Gentler, more relaxing, more authentic – the south is the perfect introduction to the wonders of India. A multitude of varied experiences from the Life of Pi’s Indian Cote d’Azur in Pondicherry to the thriving technicolour temples in the power centre of Madurai, the extravagant courtyard mansions of Chettinad, and the fragrant spice gardens and tea plantations of Periyar. Cooking demonstrations, privately hosted lunches, and presentations on temple architecture, early Indian painting, Ayurveda practice, and the continuity of cultural practices. Views are extraordinarily rich, full of colour and life. Optional extension to the palm-fringed Backwaters of Kerala.
