The Travel Planners, a leading tour operator based in Kerala, India, has released two new holiday packages for tourist groups visiting India and new itineraries for their existing tour packages for 2015-17.

The two new group-tour packages are namely ‘Kerala Cultural Tour’ which spans 11 days/10 nights and ‘South Indian Tour’ which has a duration of 14 days/13 nights. The former package focuses solely on the state of Kerala, also known as ‘God’s own Country’, whereas the latter covers various destinations across the southern-most Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and the Union Territory/erstwhile French Colony of Pondicherry.

The highlights of the ‘Kerala Cultural Tour’ are a Walking Tour of the famed Fort Cochin region, Cooking experience and Dinner with a local family to flavor the local living experience, visit to a women empowerment centre, auto-rickshaw ride (a common form of mass transport in India), Yoga sessions, Nature Walks, Jungle Treks, Houseboat ride through the famous backwaters of Kumarakom/Alleppey, and multiple-beach visits among others. The package comprises of 5-star level accommodation facilities across destinations like Cochin, Munnar, Thekkady, Kumarakom, and Marari. Detailed information and itinerary can be found here

The salient features of the ‘South Indian Tour’ package are visits to the famed Hindu temples of Tamil Nadu, Plantation Walks through the spice destinations of Kerala (where world-famous spices such as cardamom, black pepper, etc. are grown in abundance), houseboat ride though the backwaters and canals of Kumarakom, wildlife sanctuary visits, and multiple beach visits, among others. The major destinations covered are Chennai, Mahabalipuram, Pondicherry, Kumbakonam, Tanjore, Madurai, Periyar, Kumarakom and Cochin. The package includes premium accommodation facilities as well.

Along with the launch of these new packages and itineraries, The Travel Planners have also launched their Budget Expeditions into Kerala, a first-time initiative in the tourist circle of Kerala. These group tours, designed exclusively for the age group of 18-35, are low-cost alternatives to the packages offered, with itineraries almost similar except for the inclusion of budget accommodation facilities in lieu of premium ones.

“We have spent the last few months taking a look at what an ideal travel experience for our guests could be and found that we could make many changes to improve the packages and make them experiences of a lifetime, for them. The success of a series of new group tours launched this time last year, all of which gave us great response in terms of customer satisfaction, is the reason to renew our style. All our new packages have been tailor-made and existing itineraries revamped, keeping in mind the ultimate tourism experience for the guests,” says Anish Kumar, CEO of The Travel Planners.

The Travel Planners is a recipient of the ‘Best Tour Operator’ Award from the Ministry of Tourism Government of India, and various other recognition's. The company has offices in Trivandrum, Cochin, and Canada. The Travel Planners also owns two boutique resorts in Kerala- SpiceTree Resort, Munnar and The Villa Romantica, Cochin.
