Such a great adventure! My girlfriend and I went on the tour to ease into a longer trip in India and were blown away. Really organised, super knowledgable and helpful leader and so much fun

It was a great trip and a great way to see India. I would go again with Geckos and I meet a lot of great people on the tour. The best way to get around was the tuk tuks - they were an eye opener

In the south it’s all about the go-slow. There are Kerala’s canals to cruise, Goa’s beaches to go all beach-y on and enough coconuts to build a coconut building out of.
