Tour Details

India is beautiful and amazing at the same time, a place where sacred cows stand on heavenly beaches next to modern Hotels and ancient temples. Brilliant trains drive through rural areas where nothing has changed for hundreds of years.

One-sixth of the world’s population lives in this vast and unforgettable country. Lively, colourful towns and villages alternate with beautiful pine forests, orchards, fields and sparkling streams. From the most exotic spices to cereals and citrus everything has its place!

Let yourself be carried away to a country and a culture that has nothing in common with ours and yet is similar in a certain way.

Anyone who seeks words to describe India soon lands with the Indian Proverb “Everything is possible – nothing is easy!”

After a visit to the Regional Research Center for farming and lunch on a farm continue to Patiala. Enjoy an overnight stay in Bardari Palace. The building was built in 1876 in Mughal style and has served as a backdrop for several Indian films.

A day full of highlights awaits you. In the morning, visit two production companies for agricultural machinery. The production methods of these two companies couldn’t be more different. In the afternoon, visit the private farm of Imaan Singh Mann, the son of a well-known Indian politician. In the evening arrival in Chandigarh.

Train ride from Chandigarh to New Dehli. The following visit to the largest vegetable market in Asia in “Old Dehli” will inspire you. At the end of the day we will take you on a rickshaw ride through the small winding streets of the old town and enjoy the “smell of India” on the spice market.

From New Dehli the path leads you directly to the “Heart of India”, to Agra, where you visit the impressive Red Fort in the afternoon. The craftsmanship should not be neglected. See the marble artists of Agra over their shoulders and admire the filigree work.

Nobody should have visited India without seeing the Taj Mahal. Let yourself be enchanted by the sight of this 17th-century building and enjoy the unique atmosphere at sunrise. Then drive to Jaipur, also known as pink city.

By jeep you will climb the hill to the Amber Fort. A stunning building from the 16th century. Enjoy the fantastic view over lunch at Restaurant 1135AD.

Transfer to the airport of Jaipur. Domestic flight via New Delhi to Kochin (South India). Transfer to Kumarakom. Your hotel is located in the well-known backwaters of Kerala.

Explore the area by motorboat. Enjoy the drive through the world famous backwaters of Kerala and its rice fields. Lunch at an Indian family on their farm. The rest of the day is at leisure. Do you just want to relax or do you want to try an ayurvedic massage?

On the way to Dewalokam you are expected by Sebastian and Olamedayal. With traditional agriculture in a small space and the processing of palm leaves, the two earn their livelihood. Around noon you reach Dewalokam an incredibly idyllic place in the midst of spice and rubber plantations.

During a tour of the rubber factory you will learn everything worth knowing about the processing of this “white gold”. The afternoon is at leisure before you end your trip with a cooking demonstration of South Indian delicacies and dinner in the evening.
