  We both were a bit nervous at the thought of dealing with India direct but all was very well planned, Mohit saw us through the hole tour and it was faultless, the palaces were fantastic colonial throw backs in time, we had a fantastic time, thanks to our guide who never left us in any position that we felt uncomfortable.an unforgeable time was had by both of us, thank you.   Graham Leslie
  I planned a South India tour from Chennai to Kochi. I asked from many different travel companies but I got the best and cheapest offer by 'Way to India'. That was two weeks travel plan. We visited so many wonderful places and we got enough time for some individual program too. In the first week we visited the historical places like temples, museums and some beaches. In the second week we visited amazing natural attraction. All happened at exactly fixed itinerary. We traveled with a comfortable panoramic mini bus and the bus driver (Mr. Ram) was very kind and talented who could manage a good restaurant for dinner and lunch every day. The recommended hotels were correct and better than the chosen category. The connecting with 'Way to India' was a great experience for us and Mr Mohit was very pleasant and flexible for our request. All in all believe that this was the best choice for traveling. I'm sure we'll go back in India again because we found many kind friends at there and we would like to organize travel again by 'way to India'. thanks for all you have done for us thank you so much

  I am so delighted and grateful that I found Way to India. I was nervous about doing a trip by myself, as a young woman, in the Himalayas and it was important for me to find a trusted company to arrange my trip. I searched long and hard but once I spoke with Mohit at Way to India, I knew I found the perfect company. Every question I had or issue I needed help with was handled immediately, proficiently, with excellent service that really went above and beyond. All of the people connected with the company that I met or spoke with are extremely helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The itinerary created was just perfectly tailored for what I wanted and was done with a lot of thought and care. They stayed connected with me through the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. Really, I did not have to worry or think about anything. I will use them every time I come back to India! I highly recommend to all my friends and family and to anyone who wants a memorable visit to India.   Aditi Banerjee
  Thanks to Waytoindia for 10 day in Rajasthan- Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Mount Abu and Ahmedabad. Everything from pickup from Jaipur airport to drop at Ahmedabad airport was very smooth. The hotels booked in Jaipur and Udaipur were amazing. In Jaisalmer the camel ride and Jeep safari though a bit expensive was a good experience. The car and the driver for the entire 10 days was very good. Thanks to the driver Mahesh, who drove the 2 ladies for the entire 10 days safely and dropped us in time for the return flight to Bangalore.

    Travel Tips For North Kerala Tour

    • Summers (March-May) are hot, though not much humid. Monsoons (June-September) may bring moderate to heavy rainfall and perfect for rejuvenating Ayurveda treatments and lush greenery. Winters (October-February) are the best time for North Kerala tour due to extremely balmy weather.
    • Bekal Beach is not safe for swimming, but you can visit the nearby Kanvatheertha Beach where a huge pool within the sea offers amazing swimming fun.
    • An interesting attraction of the only lake temple in Kerala, Ananthapura Temple, near Bekal Fort, is Babiya, a vegetarian crocodile, believed to be the temple’s guard for more than 60 years.
    • Muzhappilangad Beach, acclaimed as one of the world’s top 6 beaches for driving, is ideal for swimming, paragliding, parasailing, quad biking, catarman rides and several other adventures.
    • Sun usually gets strong in the noon. It is better to access beaches and beach attractions before 11 a.m. or after 4 p.m. during North Kerala tour. Or, you must carry along enough water and juices to prevent dehydration.
    • If you carry plastic bottle on trek to the plastic-free zone of Chembra Peak, Edakkal Caves and other attractions, you must deposit around INR 20 as security which would be refunded if you show the bottle on return. Plastic bottles and other plastic items are prohibited at Kuruva Island.
    • Beware of monkeys, while climbing to the Edakkal Caves.
    • Camping, smoking and drinking are strictly prohibited on Chembra trek.
    • If you visit Soochipara or other falls in monsoons, it is advised not to get too close to the fall due to heavy water flow and invisible whirlpools.
    • Mosquito/insect repellents for beaches and forests, especially during and post-monsoons are almost essential.
    • Don’t miss on North Kerala tour the scrumptious Malabar cuisine, especially the preparations like Malabar biryani, pathiri, thoran, kadukka, muttamala and kozhi curry.
