Have just returned from the 14 day Spice Trails of Kerala tour with Exodus. Having travelled with Exodus before, we were familiar with the format and this trip certainly did not disappoint. Accommodation was good, the programme was varied and interesting and the support was excelellent.

Spice Trails of Kerala

Essentially two holidays in one, an energetic trek in the hills, sleeping under canvas, followed by a more leisurely period of sightseeing in towns, on a houseboat, and in the Periyar wildlife sanctuary, sleeping in beds, the whole admirably organised and led, partly in Kerala and partly in Tamil Nadu.   Good food throughout and no problems with hygiene.

Magical highlights of Southern India

The 'Spice Trail' gave us a wonderful opportunity to see the best parts of the Kerala and Tamil Nadu mountains. Our days of trekking were not too long and we were rewarded by the finest Keralan cuisine by Santosh's 'crew'. We have not had better food since we left the hills. Whilst we climbed 100m to 2630m over a few days the pace was slow and deliberate and none of the group found it at all difficult. Whilst we spotted tiger, leopard, deer and elephant prints and pooh we were not blessed with sightings! In Thekkady the Periyar tiger sanctuary guide was outstanding as was Abraham in his spice garden and Mr Sheril showed us how to cook up a feast at his Bar-B-Que cooking school. Back to the bigger cities was a bit of a shock from the quiet of the forests and tea plantations, however we thoroughly enjoyed the touristy bit of the holiday with temple visits and interesting highlights of life in Kerala. The trip took in all aspects of travel here with the tented camps, a houseboat stay, a beach side homestay and several very nice hotels. Overall the trip has given us a great feel for this part of India and a thirst for a return - perhaps to the North next time. Oh please don't let the leeches put you off - nothing that 'leech socks' and a handful of salt or snuff couldn't fix!!

A good introduction to trekking. Good that it was followed with a range other ativities in the second week, which made it feel longer that a 14 day holiday. Call me fussy but a hotel with a pool would have been good at some point - it was hot!

We had a delightful time in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, an extremely competent and enjoyable local leader, very good accommodation, food and transport. Our itinerary was changed due to adverse weather conditions with the complete agreement of the group and excellent management of the leader. We found, however, that the hiking paths were not well formed and not "moderate", but rather steeper than expected and less through spice growing areas than through tea growing areas, but breath taking anyway.

Spice Trails of Kerala - Nov 2014

A superb itinerary - well thought out & executed. Never a dull moment. The food provided throughout the trip was fantastic - you need to be a fan of curry though! The local communities are genuinely friendly and welcoming. The trip allowed for personal preference to be taken into consideration.

This  trip was  excellent, my highlight was the 5 day walking in  the Western Ghats and  camping. We were looked after extremely well with good tasty food and snacks. The atmosphere sitting around the campfire was fun. the walking was not too strenuous  and  there were loads of  flowers.the rest of the trip was brilliantly  coordinated by our guide Santosh Kumar  who could not have done more  to help us.
