India Walking Tours

Experience India

The extraordinary diversity of Southern India is truly distinctive from the rest of India. Where the North has great forts, the South has temples. Where northern cuisine is emphasized by substantial meat dishes and influenced by its desert conditions, southern cuisine is light but fiery and influenced by the sea. You’ll experience the enchanting backwaters of Alleppey, the grand temples of Mysore, watch classical Indian dance in Cochin and dine on freshly caught fish along the coastal beaches of Goa.

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
