For a gentler introduction to India than the bustle of Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu holidays introduce you to a wealth of fantastic temples and archeological treasures that celebrate Hinduism in all its splendour. The 'land of many temples' (more than 30,000 in total) is often referred to as the cradle of Dravidian civilisation, very much in evidence in the shape of fantastic temples with towering rainbow coloured gopurams (gateway towers) and incredible intricate rock carvings. For cultural centres that double as staggering architectural wonders, plan visits to the magnificent Meenakshi temple in Madurai
and the beautiful Brihadisvara Temple in Thanjavur. For a complete contrast, head to the city of Pondicherry, where you will still find vestiges of the French colonial era, venture up into the hills of Kodaikanal, among the picturesque Western Ghats, to see one of Tamil Nadu’s finest hill stations, or relax on the beaches on the Coromandel Coast.

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.
