Covering some of the most inspiring and delightful sights of the southern-most states of India, our Southern Explorer tour starts with the atmospheric town of Bangalore. In the Nandi Hills of Karnataka, relish the strong fruity notes of top-quality wines at a beautiful vineyard.

After a spectacular stop at the fort town of Srirangapatnam, drive to Mysore to see another magnificent site, Mysore Palace. Drive through Bandipur National Park in search of tigers before crossing over to Coonoor on board a UNESCO World Heritage train.

Take a traditional houseboat along the captivating backwaters to final stop Kovalam and spend an evening under a soul-stirring sunset, in a cruise boat, on the picturesque backwaters of Poovar Island.
