This holiday winds its way through some of the most spectacular sights that Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala have to offer and is designed for travellers who really want to immerse themselves in one region, taking the time to do it properly.
There's a pleasing balance to this itinerary: take in some culture, in places like Tanjore and Chennai; enjoy wildlife in Nagarhole; slow things right down on a stunning, remote backwaters cruise in northern Kerala; relax on a beach in rarely visited Neeleshwar and experience rural homestays in Kolukkumalai and Sethumadai. Travel is mostly by train and with your private chauffeur.
- Rocking around on a scenic train ride from Chennai into Kumbakonam; one of the oldest towns in Tamil Nadu
