A bit disappointing really
History, culture & wildlife of India vacation

£1,336

My stay at the Wild Mahseer in Assam was very special. Great hospitality, beautiful lodgings and interesting environmental projects. (more)Liz Mcmanus
I have told the vacation provider that they do a great job . (more)Joel Montague
The most exciting part was not on the original programme. We asked Rajat to give us somewhat more nature and less culture. He arranged for us to spend a day and two nights in a resort on the Kabini Lake, across from the Nagarhole National Park. On a boat safari at dusk, amidst myriad birds and beasts, we saw a male tiger emerging muddily from the river, slinking into the jungle. (more)Robin Fox

Northern Kerala tailor tour, tailor made
From
£1,400
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We traveled as a family and moved every couple of days so ever day brought something new and was memorable. What was exciting about this vacation was learning about other cultures and meeting people living in a variety of different ways. But as a family, the favorite experience was riding an elephant. Tips? Take plenty of hand sanitiser for when you are out and about and some toilet rolls too. Food is very cheap, eat out! Don't eat at the Sandesh Prince hotel in... (more)Gentian Bolt

There are so many great memories of the vacation, that will live long in the memory.

From
US $1,360

The vacation could not have gone any smoother and our thanks to Thomas for recommending the wonderful Graman Homestay for a break before our bird watching trip began. We more or less just sat in the garden and relaxed whilst Jos and his wife looked after us and gave us some wonderful food. Different Kerala dishes every day. (more)Christopher Wyeth
Many memorable parts - wonderful bird watching trips, cycling in the backwaters, relaxing and enjoying the Keralan food and scenery. (more)Moyra Williams
It's a highly recommendable trip. Excellent birding and other wildlife, scenic landscapes, very nice accommodation and an excellent guiding. (more)Luis Mario Arce

Excellent....By far the best food is to be had at homestays. (more)Maggie Carr
Kerala & Tamil Nadu mountain biking vacations, Western Ghats
From
US $850
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We just returned from our customized cycling tour of Kerala India. We have been on a few good cycling tours in Europe but they could not compare to this extraordinary vacation. We were treated like royalty and so respectfully from the minute we were picked up at the airport until we departed. We wanted an active adventure and that's exactly what we had. We were enchanted by Kerala. The people we met while cycling on the roads as well as those we met in the accomandations... (more)Debby Zweibach

It surpassed our expectations. The best parts were Cycling through villages, with all the children running out to greet us, and giving us "high 5's"as we passed through - Standing on top of the 2nd highest mountain in South India, having just trekked to the top. Staying for the night on a rice boat... (more)janice eastman
Brilliant! The first 10 days are very intensive - cycling and walking with lots of new experiences along the way. The last few gave us plenty of time to wind down and relax so that we have arrived home feeling completely refreshed. (more)Annette Keith
The diversity in this two week training camp was really something. From Kayaking in +30c to staying in a tent with -4c. And the intensity of the cycling. 100 km up and down. But then always guides with loads of bananas, beer and kindness. (more)Tomas Ekberg

Family holiday with volunteering in India
From
£499

Memorable parts? Seeing the enthusiasm of the children and how welcome we felt at the schools. Feeling connected to the local community and other volunteers whilst staying in the comfortable volunteers house instead of a hotel. Also the delicious authentic Indian food cooked by a lovely local lady at the house. Tips? Make time for a bit of relaxation before the project and after as the traveling is very tiring and we would have liked to have had more time to spend in India. Make... (more)Rayner McKenzie
Kerala luxury vacation, India
From
£2,039
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The homestays were particularly enjoyable, allowing us some insight into everyday life in a way that can be difficult to experience as a tourist. Our hosts were warm, genuine, entertaining and thoughtful people who put a great deal of effort into ensuring that we got the best from our trip. It felt very sad each time we had to move on! Also, Keralan food is wonderful, though 3 home cooked meals a day can have a serious impact on your waistline (perhaps we should have refused... (more)Liz Livingstone

South India vacation, small group
From
US $2,180
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Probably the meenakshi temple visit. I also thought Kerala was beautiful. Tips? I would advise other travelers to research the areas being visited because I didn't think there were enough interesting activities offered. Local benefits? Not sure. Overall rating? 2 stars. Although our tour leader was nice enough, I found her rather disorganized and not particularly communicative regarding the areas we visited (unless we asked direct questions) or the...

Memorable parts of the vacation - There were too many to mention, but floating on the backwaters at sunset, felt pretty magical. (more)Colette Cooper
