A perfect blend of North and South, a mix of awe and inspiration with relaxation and rejuvenation. While the trip in the North India  will introduce you to the Forts, Palaces, temples, world heritage sites, historical monuments, shopping and old bazaars, the Southern state of Kerala will  encompass serene and beautiful landscapes, be it backwaters or tea gardens or the beaches. While the north boasts of the fervor of Rajasthan, the South part of the trip  is laden with laidback  atmosphere of Kerala with an opportunity to bask in the  goodness of Ayurveda and other massages. This trip will allow you to experience the difference in two parts of the country – from people to food to culture and living.
This one is one of our other favorites for a first time India traveler.
