Walk the backstreets of Delhi with a local guide, explore grand forts and palaces in Rajasthan, learn the true meaning of relaxation aboard a houseboat on Kerala's backwaters, discover a newfound obsession with South Indian cuisine with a cooking demonstration, cross cultures at a family homestay in the south and a heritage village home in the north
North India or South? Do both! This 2-week tour combines the riot of Rajasthan’s colours with the calming greens of Kerala. You'll have time to immerse yourself in regional traditions in the North and spend a night at a heritage village hotel, and time to unwind in the south—just imagine cruising the backwaters on a houseboat. Throw in the Taj Mahal, the 'Pink City' of Jaipur and Kochi's fishing markets and you're left with one spicy curry of an adventure—many flavours with big impact.
