Our thinking is quite simple: offer the best journey – an experience beyond the usual. With 20 years in the industry and as many years of travelling through the most sought-after and the lesser travelled places, we understand it’s all about being in the right place, at the right time, with the right people. The best experiences can sometimes be a simple meal with a local family, an unexpected encounter during a game drive, a canoe ride through the intricate narrow canals, a walk through the never-ending paddy fields, a real bargain at the local fish market after your host asks you to buy fish for the day’s lunch, or witnessing the evening ceremony at a temple.
We are pure specialists of South India, well equipped to handle incoming tours to Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and the islands of Lakshwadeep and Andaman and Nicobar. The accommodation options we suggest are the best in that category, from top-notch luxury to midrange, simple boutique resorts, home stay and value-for-money budget hotels. The activities we conduct include some of the best living experiences, involving local communities, far from touristic. At times, you get a chance to participate in what they do. The chauffeurs we recommend are a bunch of best experienced people, who over the years have mastered the art of client handling.
