Easy Tours of India
facilitates luxury travel for the most North Americans (not including large groups) to South India. We are a boutique operator with a unique perspective on what a tour of South India should be like. That is one reason why we now have over 9000 guests that are willing to be references –
Ms. Diane & Mr. George Milauskas traveled with us in Jan/Feb 2010 – “Our trip to India and Nepal with Easy Tours of India was magnificent. Easy Tours could not have done a better job. Everything was meticulously organized, and we were catered to like a king and queen. It was so much more than a tour - it was a cultural immersion and a learning experience beyond any we had ever experienced before. We found India to be a fascinating country, rich in culture, tradition, pageantry, religious beliefs, and historical wonders. Every single one of our guides was outstanding, extremely knowledgeable, proud to be showing off his city, and an expert in his academic field. We would highly recommend Easy Tours to anyone considering a trip to India.”
We have eight offices in India and our South India Head Office is in Kochi. When you contact our US Sales Office, you will talk to people who have traveled extensively in South India and are passionate about what the Deccan Plateau has to offer. They will discuss your preferences and make suggestions based on personal experience. Unlike 98% of our competition (who are middlemen that sell the whole world), we are true India Specialists and we personally facilitate your explorations.
We start with the premise that your time and your money are both very precious and neither should be wasted. Our United States offices and six India offices work together to give you an amazing experience from the day you first request information, till the day you return home from your tour of South India.
We then add World Class Service. From the moment you are greeted by an Easy Tours Visit Facilitator, you enter a world of impeccable service and hospitality. While you tour India with us, your biggest decisions are what cuisine you will want to try that evening, and what sights or events you'd like to spend your time exploring.
Tour South India as it was meant to be discovered. We can assist you in putting together a custom itinerary that is designed around your preferences, or you can select from our Collection of South India Tours and the various South India Extensions.
The Collection of South India Tours can be relished as part of our ultra small group departures (maximum of 12 guests) and they can also be enjoyed on your choice of dates as independent visits. These itineraries are meticulously planned and facilitated so as to let our guests experience the very best that South India has to offer.
The itineraries include visits to South India's main tourist attractions, as well as many opportunities to observe local color and customs. You will explore the major monuments and also get to see everyday life. You have the option to stay in South India’s finest luxury or boutique hotels and get to mix with the locals.
You can add other destinations and attractions before and/or after the small group tours. South India offers some great coastal resorts (including a few amazing islands) as well as Ayurvedic centers. If you desire something different, please call us so we can discuss your preferences, or you can visit our build your own tour page and tell us what you want to experience so we can put together a custom proposal for you.
Discover South India from where the lush Deccan plateau takes over, dominating southern India. Experience the Ghats, where the plateau descends to meet the mostly virgin beaches and warm waters of coastal Indian resorts like Goa and Kochi (Cochin).
Learn about Ayurveda or get treatments from the best Ayurvedic centers in the world. Visit Mumbai (Bombay), the bustling city that houses the largest and most prolific motion picture industry in the world.
The geography, climate, and culture of Southern India is very different from the North. The Deccan Plateau is home to lush plantations, farms, and jungles; it descends into hundreds of miles of warm and beautiful beaches. There is magnificent traditional Hindu architecture, art and handicrafts.
The awe inspiring temples let you discover Hinduism in its purest form. In a nation where religion is interwoven with almost every activity, Southerners tend to be even more pious and God-fearing. Religious festivals and events occur all through the year. Explore ornate palaces (like the Mysore Palace) that exhibit wealth rivaling the most elaborate royal palaces of Europe. There are many regional handicrafts available; as well as the opportunity to observe local color and rituals.
Kerala is advertised as God’s own country. It’s amazing scenery and friendly locals will captivate you. The 100% literacy and lack of poverty make it unique among Indian states. It has a large Christian population and you can visit churches full of architectural and cultural significance.
Kerala’s largest city Kochi has something to delight every explorer. It is know as "The Queen of the Arabian Sea", among other names, and is a scenic and lush collection of islands, capes, and mainland connected by an elaborate yet intricate system of ferries and bridges.
Although it has monuments left over from ancient cultures, the city of Chennai (Madras) as we currently know it was founded by the British in the early 17th century. In the 2nd century AD, Greek geographer Ptolemy described Mylapore (part of modern Chennai, located south of Marina Beach) as a prosperous port. The Kapaleswara temple and San Thome Cathedral are both located in this part of Chennai, and are well worth a visit. The various monuments in neighboring Mahabalipuram make a tour of Chennai very much worth the time and effort.
