This tour will show you the true kaleidoscope of India. Visit three of India's most iconic regions in one tour and enjoy some of the country's greatest architectural triumphs as well as tropical paradise. Rajasthan, or 'the country of kings' is known as the 'real India' whereas Kerala, or 'God's own country' is famous for its beaches, food and ayurvedic massage. Tamil Nadu will astound you with incredible temples and architecture. This tour will show you the true kaleidoscope that is India.
The tour begins with a visit to the Taj Mahal, the most iconic tribute to true love. You will also visit other beautiful architectural triumphs, including Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace), Amber Palace, Jantar Mantar (astronomy observatory), the 15th Century marble temple of Ranakpur, and the Lake cities of Udaipur and Jodphur.
In Rajasthan you will stay and relax in ancient forts and palaces which have now been renovated as into hotels. The architecture here harks back to times of opulence, royalty and a love for all things decadent. In the evenings, when the snake charmers, musicians and dancers perform, you will truly feel as though you have stepped back to the time of Kings.
The Malabar Coast, in the South, is blessed with natural beauty. Enjoy cruising down the canals of Alleppey or backwaters, which stretch for more than 1000 kilometers. Sail on a traditional Keralite houseboat and discover the daily activities of the friendly people. Explore the city of Kochi (Cochin) where the palace, synagogue, churches and the daily lives of the fishermen will fascinate you. An intriguing array of temples dating from the 7th to 18th Century in the Coromandel region will stun you with their luxurious decoration and the finest craftsmanship.
