This luxury private tour features a range of experiences in southern India and Sri Lanka, as well as the finest accommodation in each location. It includes private city touring in Mumbai, a luxury cruise through the Backwaters of Kerala, private cultural touring in Galle, a wildlife safari in Yala National Park, a private cooking lesson and ample leisure time at the two best luxury resorts in Sri Lanka.

Begin in exciting Mumbai (Bombay), India’s economic capital and the home of the Bollywood film industry. During private touring, visit the city’s most interesting cultural attractions, bazaars and neighborhoods.

Next, fly to Cochin (Kochi), an evocative harbor town stretched across islands and peninsulas on the Malabar Coast. With your private guide, experience the city's rich heritage and the influence of Portuguese, British, Dutch, Chinese and Jewish traders in places such as a 500-year-old church, a 16th-century synagogue and a royal palace. Browse for antiques, and perhaps indulge in a traditional Ayurvedic spa treatment, a specialty of southern India.

Board a luxury cruise for a three-day exploration of the scenic Backwaters of Kerala, a vast network of lagoons, canals and lakes. Listen for birdsong drifting out of the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, and observe daily life along the waterways. Enjoy gourmet south Indian specialty dishes, and watch performances of traditional Keralan dances. Learn about traditional snakeboat building, and visit the home of a local family.

Then, fly to Sri Lanka, and transfer to Galle, an ancient fortified port and UNESCO site with a colonial-era atmosphere and unique mix of cultures. Stay in the heart of the Galle Fort historic district at Amangalla, one of the finest and most romantic luxury resorts in Sri Lanka. During private touring, visit local museums, explore evocative backstreets, walk on the sea walls to the lighthouse, look for reminders of the Dutch and British colonial years, observe daily life, and browse local shops, some of the best in Sri Lanka. During leisure time, relax at your resort, indulge in spa treatments or swim in the beautiful pool. Alternatively, enjoy optional private excursions to regional highlights such as a sea turtle hatchery, a traditional mask workshop and the private country estate of Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka’s most acclaimed modern architect.

Finish your tour at Amanwella, an exclusive ultra-luxury resort overlooking a palm tree-shaded beach on the southern coast of Sri Lanka outside Tangalle. Visit attractions that illuminate regional history, such as a Dutch colonial fort, a lace-making workshop and a folk museum dedicated to preserving Sri Lanka’s traditions. One morning, take a private market tour and cooking lesson to learn to prepare traditional Sri Lankan curry and rice. Another day, enjoy a private wildlife safari in Yala National Park or another nearby game reserve to look for wild elephants, colorful birds and elusive leopards. During leisure time, swim in your private plunge pool, the infinity-edge main pool or the sparkling water of the Indian Ocean. Or, enjoy optional activities such as whale watching, nature walks, private surfing lessons, and excursions to Buddhist cave temples and other cultural sites.

This tour can easily be extended with time in other popular destinations in India and Sri Lanka.
