explore South India and the Golden Triangle
Enjoy a gentle and relaxing introduction to the wonders and heritage of South India. Immerse yourself in the rich history of the region, from ancient temples, colonial outposts and vibrant cities to understand what remains an under-explored region of Asia. In India, relax in the French colonial town of Pondicherry and stroll on its famous ocean promenade. Explore the fabulously decorated courtyard mansions of remote Chettinad and learn the how to's of basic South Indian cuisine. Find yourself journeying into India's Golden Triangle; vibrant and colourful. Visit Delhi, Agra and the incomparable Taj Mahal before finding yourself in the 'Pink City' of Jaipur, the heart of Rajasthan's pageantry. These quiet treasures of the sub-continent promise days filled with discovery that leave much to the imagination.
Please note: The security of our travellers is of the utmost importance. Due to the recent terrorist attack in Sri Lanka, Global Affairs Canada still has a “Avoid non-essential travel” advisory on Sri Lanka. Our tour operator Worldwide Quest, has determined that the best way forward is to offer the group a full and rich India trip. The first part of the trip, November 1 – 7, will be as planned in South India. The Sri Lanka portion of the trip will be replaced by a visit to North India, so on November 8, the group will fly to Delhi and spend November 8 – 14 visiting Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. See the revised itinerary. The cost of the trip and the dates remain the same as the original trip to South India & Sri Lanka.
