Forget Rajasthan - if you want a microcosm of India in one state, Karnataka is the place to head. Various ancient Indian empires have called Karnataka home, leaving this state in southwestern India extraordinarily rich in cultural and religious treasures. Here, you’ll find temples - such as Belur and Halebid - which are as exuberant as they are refined. Also not to be missed is the ruined city of Hampi, a vast archaeological site with vestiges of the Vjayanagar civilization. Karnataka holidays take you to stunning and varied landscapes, too: coconut palms and rice paddies in Karavali on the coast;
thick forest and mountains in the Malnad; and arid plateaus in the Maidan region. Karnataka holidays also offer the chance to visit two polar opposite cities: Bangalore and Mysore.

Frances listened, adapted and put together an amazing trip to India. She couldn't have been any better. The Concierge was also great, he was always one step ahead of us. Organised, efficient and helpful. Very impressive. There were too many memorable moments to list out but safe to say the trip exceeded all expectations. Frances is a complete star and deserves all the plaudits for a truly amazing holiday. Thank you.
