Our journey was tailored to us in a way that was beyond considerate and allowed us to see South India in a way few people get to. With local guides teaching us about the culture and able to answer all questions that we had, the trip became far more than a sightseeing tour but an immersive cultural experience. It took us from bustling cities to deserted beaches, tea plantations and tiger reserves, dense jungles to the backwaters of Kerala on a sunset boat ride. It was so sensational even with leeches getting through Dunja's leech proof socks and a trip to the hospital for Bryony with a tooth infection. No questions were left unanswered and no experience failed to leave a lasting impact.
