Trip Info

Enjoy exploring the region on this cultural immersion tour. Beginning our journey in fascinating Panjim, the quaint and charming capital of Goa with its fascinating Portuguese heritage, we travel east to explore the ruins of the Vijayanagar Empire in Hampi.

Heading south, we spend time in charming Mysore the old capital of the Wodeyar Dynasty where we witness the spectacular Mysore Palace lights and the colorful Devaraja markets before heading into Kerala, God’s own country.

This extraordinarily beautiful part of India offers extreme diversity. Enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful backwaters, beaches, tea, coffee and spice plantations and wildlife reserves. Watch fishermen in Cochin pull in the nets as they have done for centuries. Experience life along the tranquil islands of the backwaters. Trek through a wildlife park and maybe catch a glimpse of wild elephants, deer, giant squirrels or wild boar.

Moving on to Tamil Nadu, considered to be the last bastion of traditional Hindu culture in India, we visit ancient monuments and temple towns before finishing our tour in Mahabalipuram resplendent with World Heritage rock cut temples and charming beach resort

Incredible Indian Tours

Since 2006, we have been operating small group tours, aiming to provide a unique and personalized experience, offering a more local touch, yet from a western perspective. Our Incredible group tours now cover India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Burma. Some of our tours are for women only, however most trips are for mixed groups. We take only very small groups ranging from a minimum of four to a maximum of 10 and all of our group tours have an Australian tour guide living in India. In addition we use local guides in each location.

    Debbie Kindness is an expert and very pleasant tour guide and trip planner. We thoroughly enjoyed the South Indian Odyssey in February 2019. The Odyssey, as the name suggests, visited a wide range of experiences and wonderful places. Debbie worked hard make it all fit together and to minimize the train and bus trips between stops. She made travel seamless for tour participants, adjusting to the needs and capabilities of the group. We especially appreciated the Theyyam ritual in Kannur, the stunning beauty of the tea plantations in Munnar, the houseboat and homestay in the Kerala backwaters, the temples and carvings in Mahabalipuram, and the expert guides she arranged at temples, ruins and villages. Debbie knows a great deal about India and its people, the Hindu religion, the best restaurants, and the best shopping. Highly recommended!

    This was the most amazing tour! From day one in Goa til the end in Mahaballipuram, I enjoyed every minute. In fact, I stayed a few extra days once the tour was over. Debbie Kindness has so much experience with traveling India, she understands every little nuance. The truly immersive nature of her tours gives you the feeling that you’ve seen the real India, with awe-inspiring memories to last a lifetime. There were so many highlights, such as swimming in the Indian ocean off the Malabar Coast and also across the country in the Bay of Bengal, magnificent houseboat tour in the backwaters of Kerala, the absolute “Frenchness” of Pondicherry, but my ultimate favorite was seeing wild elephants in Periyar National Park. South India is completely different to the North. It seems much more laid back, and there’s a rhythm to this tour that makes it quite relaxing. There is so much more, it’s impossible to write it all down in a review! This was my second trip with Incredible Indian tours. The first one was Essence of India – Women’s Tour. I will definitely join them on other tours they offer.
