What to Expect on this South India Tour Package

India is far more than the tourist belt of the Golden Triangle. This carefully curated South India tour itinerary showcases the very best this part of the country has to offer.

During the trip, we visit the majestic cities of Pondicherry and Madurai as well as lesser-known places like Hampi and Marari.

You can witness the pious proceedings at Meenalakshmi Temple, create the world-famous Chettinad pepper chicken, and roam Pondicherry’s beautiful French Quarter.

This 15-day South India group travel package delves into history, traditions, and secrets. It digs beneath the mystique of an overlooked but fascinating region.

An authentic South Indian experience awaits you! And as part of our regenerative travel revolution, you can give back to your host communities, helping them grow and flourish in a sustainable way.

For adventures in the north of the country over a similar timescale, consider the Colours of India: Northern Discovery to Goan Beaches tour.

If you have more time and want to travel the length of the country, let us introduce you to our incredible 30-day tour: India Encompassed: Northern Discovery and Southern Adventure.
