South India Tours & Holidays

Join us on a spice, temple and dosa-filled journey into the soul of South India. 

From the palm-lined beaches of Goa to the sleepy backwaters of Kerala and the temple-strewn Hampi, South India is packed with cultural and culinary adventures. While iconic landmarks like Maharaja's Palace and Sri Meenakshi Temple are bound to wow you, the real magic for us lies in sharing a biriyani with a local family, learning about Ayurveda as you sniff your way around a herb garden or tracking tiger footprints with a village guide. If you want to discover India beyond the Golden Triangle's big-ticket attractions, a South India trip could be on the cards.

Premium South India

This was our 6th trip with Intrepid, and came after doing the fantastic Intrepid India North trip. Disappointed this time, poor program, way too expensive, and leader not up to the standards. Real pitty.

A disappointing second half to a brilliant first, north India, trip. Premier prices but alround second class. Intrepid need to do some work on their southern India staff, itinerary and accommodation. I would definitely not recommend this holiday .

I loved all of this trip. It showed me a calm and relaxed side of India I never imagined I would find here. I loved the balance between ancient temples and modern adventures. Chandler was an outstanding guide and a wonderful person.

Southern India

Wendy · Traveled April 2024
For first timers to India like myself this is an excellent tour , India is so much more than the crowds and squalor we sometimes expect . The mountains the national parks Kerala back waters , beautiful scenery and lovely people , I felt quiet safe as single female traveller . Also we saw tigers, elephants and leopard in the National park which was amazing . Our guide Chandra was very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with he made sure any requests we had were met.
