The tour starts in Kochi, one the oldest ports in India and known for its blend of Chinese, European and Indian cultures. Crumbling spice warehouses line its narrow streets, spider-like Chinese fishing nets loom over the shoreline and bustling markets boast curiosities from centuries past. You'll be taken on a guided tour of the city in an air-conditioned vehicle, then have a traditional Keralan cooking lesson from a local TV personality.

On day three, you'll drive to Munnar, the largest tea-growing region in southern India. You'll call in at a traditional tea plantation, cloaked in low-hanging clouds in the foothills of the Western Ghats, where you'll have a tea-tasting session before departing for the town centre for a 2-night stay.

You'll then continue to the hills of Thekkady, where you'll spend two nights near the 140-square-mile nature park at Periyar. This leg includes a wildlife-spotting boat cruise in the Periyar Tiger Reserve, as well as traditional Kathakali dance and martial arts performances.

Next, you'll have two days aboard a traditional houseboat to discover the region's glistening backwaters. Locally called a kettuvallam and held together entirely by coconut ropes, these vessels give a real insight into Keralan life.

The trip finishes with a 3-night stay in Kovalam, a fishing village with pristine beaches. Hotel Samutra KDC has ocean views from every room and a spa centre offering traditional Ayurvedic treatments.
