Hi! I’m Amy and I’d love to share my recent tour with you.
As a photographer, the stunning scenery of South India has always appealed to me. I chose Authentic India Tours as I could create my own itinerary for Kerala to fit in with a very short timescale, and wanted an adventure with ABTA protection.
I stayed in some incredible hotels, which had generously sized rooms, great facilities and friendly welcomes. The Xandari Harbour in Fort Kochi had an amazing waterfront setting, the Amber Dale in Munnar offered spectacular mountain views, and I loved the staff at Greenwoods in Periyar. The Zuri in Kumarakom was the perfect place to unwind watching the amazing sunset.
I loved all of the activities, which included:
Visiting at the tail-end of monsoon season in late September means that everywhere is incredibly green and vibrant. This makes a great backdrop for the bright colours of buildings, fruit stalls and clothing that flash past on your travels. Kerala is so beautiful and there were many breath-taking moments
As a lover of Indian food, I was very excited about trying Keralan dishes. The layers of spicing are incredible, the ingredients are so fresh, and the range of pescetarian/vegetarian options was phenomenal. I think I tried every variety of freshly made bread available too!
