Holidays in Kerala
The small state of Kerala is considered to be one of India’s most beautiful so it is not surprising that holidays in Kerala are becoming ever more popular among tourists. Kerala is a very rural state with most of the population living in villages and is culturally and scenically diverse. Kerala has two national parks, ten wildlife sanctuaries and two bird sanctuaries. The state has a strong culture, a wealth of religious festivals and delicious cuisine and offers palm fringed beaches, backwater cruises and mountain scenery and this means that holidays in Kerala have a lot to offer the visitor. There is also a wide range of accommodation available including boutique hotels, delightful resorts, houseboats, tree houses and homestays offering the visitor real variety. If you’ve never visited India before, Kerala is a wonderful introduction. If you have visited other parts of India and liked it then we are sure you will love one of our tailor-made holidays in Kerala.

Holidays in Tamil Nadu
Tamil Nadu is a large state in the far south of India including the very tip of the sub-continent. Tamil Nadu is considered to be the cradle of Dravidian civilization and is thought to be one of the oldest continuous cultures in the world. Holidays in Tamil Nadu are popular because it has a lot to offer the visitor. If you like beaches then there is a long eastern coast and beach hotels can be found from south of Chennai to Pondicherry. There are wildlife sanctuaries and hill stations in the Western Ghat Mountains. The main attraction of Tamil Nadu for most people is the cultural heritage. For culture and plenty of temples we recommend you consider one of our tailor-made holidays in Tamil Nadu.

Holidays in Karnataka
Karnataka is a very large state with many interesting places on offer. Most people who chose to take their holidays in Karnataka come to visit the abundance of ancient sites. They are mostly located in two areas; one to the north and one to the south. The capital, Bangalore, is a modern city with an international airport. Karnataka is scenically diverse containing sections of both the Deccan plateau and the Western Ghat Mountains. Holidays in Karnataka are ideal for people who like wildlife and culture because Karnataka has five National Parks and a number of wildlife sanctuaries as well as a number of heritage sites (including Hampi). If you like diversity then one of our tailor-made holidays in Karnataka will suit you.

Holidays in the Western Ghats
The Western Ghat mountains stretch from Mumbai almost to the tip of the subcontinent and are considered to be one of just 25 bio-diversity ‘hotspots’ in the world so offer fantastic opportunities for wildlife enthusiasts. The mountains also offer adventure opportunities including trekking and mountain biking. If you like wildlife sanctuaries, national parks and want to see a wide range of animals (birds, elephants and maybe even a tiger) then a holiday in the scenic Western Ghats is for you.
