Starting in Chennai and ending in Cochin, the Southern Spice trip is a guided cultural, religious and historic sites tour that takes 11 days. You will travel through Kerala Backwaters, Kumarakom, Madurai and 5 other destinations in India. Southern Spice is a group trip which includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

Take a sojourn to where the spices grow and the palm trees slope, under the beam of India's southern sun. We'll prance the streets of the delightfully French Pondicherry, and drift in a bamboo houseboat through the backwaters of Kerala. Temples, tea plantations and a tiger reserve - the phrase “Incredible India” must have been coined in the south.
