Willy Henriet - We booked this tour through online, immediate response with booking confirmation. We know that this is a real value for the money. Our tour started from Cochin, chauffeur is a friendly and knowledgable guide. My husband and I enjoyed the different landscapes, forest, trading centres and their history very much. The hotel we stayed everywhere was upto our likings and overall we had a wounderful experience.

Cornelja Anna Maria - One can not miss Kerala, we really loved the activities and time spent at Thekkady and Munnar. Hotels were excellent, some were fair, some were good so overall. The highlight of our trip is staying in the Ricebarge in Alleppey. We definitely recommend your tours in my friends circle.

Hi, I am Ivon your friend from India. As I was growing up I was impressed by people who were dedicated to travel and who were always looking for new and fascinating experiences. Learning about famous travellers set me on the path of findingmy own travel adventures with friends and it became one of my passions. Having traveled extensively through India, I've gained an in-depth knowledge of India's rich culture, much of which remains undiscovered by the average traveler. And it's great to be able to share my love of India with a friend like you.
