Sorry! There are no remaining departures for "South India - Kerala Dreaming" (AHIS),but here are some similar trips.

Compared to the North, southern India is a different place working on a different pace. But you don't need to devote a month to get here; this compact trip offers a healthy taste of Kerala's stunning tropical beauty. Luxuriate on the beach and watch the sunset, explore the backwaters along quiet canals, and savour that last smidgen of flavour as you scrape your banana leaf plate clean. After only one night in the tropical south, you may never want to leave.
