Journey from Kochi (more commonly known as "Cochin") and spend a day with your local guide on a tour to Kerala, a place of overwhelming greenery and diverse geography. Known for being one of the biggest jewels in the region, the Kerala backwaters in particular is a sight to be seen.

The journey is about 2.5 hours and the scenery is perfect for photography. We'll travel through the waters on a canoe, gliding through the local fishing villages. Along the way you'll learn all about the backwaters as an integral part of life in Kerala, the local village life, culture, customs, and even fruits and vegetables that grow here.

Upon arriving in Kerala, you'll be warmly welcomed into the home of a local family. You'll enjoy a traditional chai tea and a local lunch. During this time, you'll have the opportunity to converse with the local family and learn more about their lives.

Afterwards, we'll make our way back to Kochi to enjoy a traditional Ayurvedic massage to relax and refresh your body.
