Tamil Nadu is one place in India where the elaborate architecture and brilliant sculptures of its ancient temples leave all its tourists spellbound with their awe-inspiring beauty. No wonder it is known as the Temple City of India. With almost all the temples built during ancient and medieval times, a visit to these sites gives you a deep insight into the brilliant architectural, sculptural and artistic skills of the engineers, architects and artisans of the bygone era.

These temples also showcase the opulent and lavish tastes of the erstwhile royal kings, be it Cholas, Pallavas or Nayakas. Standing tall as the backbone of the Tamil culture, these temples are today, India’s precious jewels adding to its rich history and heritage.

This short trip is a compact yet comprehensive experience of the magnificent temples of Tamil Nadu. With a mix of 4 and 5 star hotels, this seven-day tour is specially designed keeping in mind a comfortable and hassle-free stay. A spacious SUV (Toyota Innova) with chauffeur at your disposal will add to the comfort level. There will be private English-speaking guides to inform you of the the inside stories and history of the wonderful temples.

“A private tour organised by a very well organised Company. We covered a fairly large area without being rushed & saw lots of Palaces, Forts, Havelis & lots of wildlife in National Parks. The hotels we stayed in were excellent,some were Palaces or Havelis & other high class brands of hotels. Everyday was a new experience & an exciting one as the itinerary put together was perfect, giving us plenty of time to meet the local people & see their way of life. At one place we stayed in a local village where there was no other tourists & learnt how they live & go to school & work their farms. Overall a very good & well put together tour that I would highly recommend to anyone travelling to India but to ensure a great tour you should go through Bout India Tours who will ensure your trip great,well organised with a lot of nice personal touches.”

“We planned out a custom three week tour of India with Bout India and we had a fantastic time! Our drivers and guides were professionals and we really experienced India, meeting and talking with locals and taking a cooking class. We felt that we really experienced the cities and areas that we visited.”

“From the moment we met our driver in Delhi until we returned to Delhi we were expertly guided through a region that would have been impossible to do without their help. You cannot rent a car to visit these areas. Safety on the sometimes treacherous roads through the mountains was a priority. The guide arranged to have our needed travel permits into this restricted area secured by having a local representative wait for several hours at the government office so that we didn't have to. We had almost daily telephone contact with Himanshu, the travel coordinator for Bout India. He was always available by cell-phone for problems that might arise. He routinely checked in to inquire about our well-being and experiences. Wherever we were we stayed at the nicest facilities available for that locale.”
