India's Tropical South

Very different from India's North and a very pleasant experience. As expected from Exodus the trip was well organised and enhanced by the competence and flexibility of the guide. An ideal way to explore the sights of Kerala and Tamilnadu at an easy pace. Nice to explore tea plantations, temples and wildlife though lacking a bit of momentum towards the end due to makeup of schedule. Sufficient spare time for shopping opportunities if desired.

The Tropical South

A brilliant two weeks! There were so many fantastic experiences and such a variety of places that it felt like a month rather than two weeks. Great mixture of culture, wildlife, scenery and a perfect beach stay at the end. A lovely group of fellow travellers and perfect weather too. Our first experience of India and of Exodus, would recommend both!

Fascinating trip and introduction to India

An interesting trip that gives a real flavour of Southern India and its wonderfully warm people and culture, but be prepared for several very long travelling days.

THE TROPICAL SOUTH

A fantastic introduction to India and Exodus. Having been recommended to travel with Exodus by a friend, I chose the "Tropical South" - a two week tour of the most southern States in India: Kerala and Tamil Nadu.  It was the best holiday decision I have made.

THE TROPICAL SOUTH

A remarkable trip. So much to see and do.After each day my head was buzzing from all the experiences I had encountered. There was also many contrasts of landscape, from the coast at Fort Kochi, the mountains of Munnar to the plains of Madurai.

THE TROPICAL SOUTH

A wonderful colourful crazy frenzy of a trip. A good introduction to India if you've never been.

THE TROPICAL SOUTH

This was a wonderful trip. The tour included a wide range of experiences and the group really jelled well. Our leader Charls wanted us to love Kerala and Tamil Nadu and added all sorts of little touches to the advertised programme. Who'd have thought how much we'd love visiting a laundry, for example. The food was wonderful particularly if you like vegetables and fish!

Needs more time in Western Ghats.

Having spoken to people who have previously been on this trip, we were left feeling disappointed for most of this experience. I think the review recently submitted by David is spot on and to write a diatribe would be just revisiting his content. With the exception of birds the only wildlife we saw was an elephant working and walking down a duel carriageway.

Exodus Response

We were very disappointed to read that Deb and David (review below) were left underwhelmed by their trip. Deb and David’s tour leader has explained that due to high demand there was no availability in the early morning walk in Periyar National Park, but further to their experience our local operator will be booking tickets for this walk further in advance to help avoid disappointment going forward. We have taken feedback from this group on board and will now be giving this leader further training on the level of information we expect our clients to be provided with during the course of a trip and we have arranged for packed breakfasts to be provided so we can get to the houseboats earlier in order to help maximize the time on the Keralan backwaters.
