South India is a beautiful part of the country which offers similarly colorful cultural experiences that North India does, but at a more relaxed pace which we found more ideal for traveling with children. We were impressed with the natural beauty of South India’s forests, backwaters, spice plantations, and safari opportunities in wild life sanctuaries! We offer customized tours for families or groups to South India, similar to our recent exploration in two of South India’s states, Kerala and Karnataka. Custom Trip and dates.
