“Our whole family loved the trip, it had a great variety with all the activities involved. We all came home pretty fit as the cycling was hard through the hills. We were very well looked after by our guide and driver and really enjoyed everything southern India had to offer.”

“I had an amazingly wonderful time on my World Expeditions vacation to Southern India! The itinerary was super (active, fun, fascinating), our guide, Francis, did everything possible to help us feel happy, comfortable and as though we were in good hands, the accommodation was far beyond expectations, the food was out-of-this-world, and everywhere we went we were made to feel like visiting dignitaries! This is my fourth World Expeditions trip, and every one of them has been far better than I imagined. And they seem to keep getting better!”
