We have moved!

India Travel Plan has a new home. We have combined all of our existing travel plan destinations on to our brand new mobile friendly Rickshaw Travel Website.

Why did we do this? To make it easier to find an independent, meaningful holiday experience that is right for you. And if you're feeling brave why not visit more than one country in your trip! 

See you there! The Rickshaw team.

South India Tours

If you're eager for the exotic, our tropical South India tour packages could be the answer. South India has beaches, backwaters, tea estates, temples, spice plantations, palaces, wildlife and plenty of sunshine. The food is as hot as the weather, with local dishes including incredible seafood curries and fish tandoori. If you're looking for a few days at a relaxed pace during your holiday in South India, you can head to the emerald backwaters of Kerala to float by on your very own romantic houseboat. Tamil Nadu, a region scattered with temples, is perfect for the culture-keen. Alternatively, if you want to get away from it all on your India holiday, try a Kerala silk tour for some retail therapy or relax on a quiet Ayurvedic Keralan beach resort.

If you'd like to build your own India trip, take a look at our bite-sized India tours, or alternatively, you can choose from one of our suggested holidays to India. Need some more advice or inspiration? Have a chat with one of our India travel specialists on 01273 322044.

Green, lush and tropical, Kerala is perhaps the most exotic region of India and a great place to visit on one of our South India tour packages. During this trip to India, you'll glide through the palm-fringed backwaters in your traditional houseboat, as you lie back and watch the world go by. Amongst all the tropical greenery you can observe the slow-paced daily activity of the locals; children waving as you float by and women in brightly-coloured saris washing clothes by the water's edge. After your taste of life in the Kerala backwaters, you'll head into the hills to the jungle of Periyar National Park in search of a different landscape where wild elephants live. In keeping with the small-scale, local accommodation used in each of our South India tour packages, you'll stay on a traditional houseboat and in a friendly guesthouse.
