North India or South? Do both! This 2-week tour combines the riot of Rajasthan’s colours with the calming greens of Kerala. You’ll have time to immerse yourself in regional traditions in the North and spend a night at a heritage village hotel, and time to unwind in the south—just imagine cruising the backwaters on a houseboat. Throw in the Taj Mahal, the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur and Delhi’s rich architecture and you’re left with one spicy curry of an adventure—many flavours with big impact.
