Why choose Authentic South India


Thirumurugan, or to make it easier : Thiru, the manager, Indian, Hinu and lives in Tanjore. He is our correspondent, the boss. He insures we have professional guides who love their work and who perfect knowledge of the land. They speak english of course, but they also speak Tamil, the language of South India, precious for their relations with the local population.

Arrange a car and a driver who knows the roads, knows to read the signs when there are some and can communicate with the aboriginal people is the best way to be able to go when you want. It is you who gives the driver your rhythm. You can admire the country side and have new experiences without feeling any anxiety : your driver will advise you on uses and prices. You can also venture into remote corners, the beaten tracks and discover the often hidden faces of the true South India.

Thiru equally ensures we have a safe vehicle, a Tempo Travaller, type mini van.

The vehicles are perfectly maintained. They are insured and hold a valid licence issued by the Indian Government. All vehicles are air conditioned. The air-conditioning is useful for the comfort of the passenger but also to ensure a better quality of air when travelling through cities. 


Authentic South India is driven by locals without intermediaries. 

The structure is established in Chennay.
We all share the same vision :

  • logo nandi Activity at a fair price. An activity driven by locals, without intermediaries.
  • logo nandi An activity from which the local economy profits. The structure of Authentic South India has been established in Chennai and almost all charges and earnings are spent directly and reinvested in the country.
  • logo nandi An activity which benefits a large number of people. Driving Authentic South India customers to a more remote and unspoiled South India, the expenses for on-site visits, meals, shopping for craftsand other more beneficial to those who need it most and not just intermediaries. Authentic South India is also keen to develop partnerships with the communities, local organizations or families for certain trips or activities.
  • logo nandi The opportunity to escape mass tourism. Moving away from holidays offered by travel agencies or the assistance of a guide, you escape the quick visits, stops "restoration" and "shopping". You learn real life, real traders,the real kitchen... India in a genuine atmosphere of security and conviviality.

India is one of the worlds that one can definitely not forget ...
Some come here for sun, sand and sea ; others feed on more specific projects : pilmigrages, meditation in the ashram, treasures and historic ruins, royal holiday and life palace ... 

Whatever the reason, the trip to South India will bring you much more than what you imagined.
Visiting the temples of Tamil Nadu, vibrating with a fervent devotion, communicates a sense of the ascred and is a kind of spiritual experience.
Walk the beautiful tea plantations of Munnar, meet the village going up the wood they used to cook, relax on the beaches of Kerala, at dusk, watching the banks of the backwaters... Not to mention the local bazaars crowded, the delightfully sentimental music of Indian films, fragrance of spices, the colours of saris.

All this and many other experiences await you. All those moments are unforgettable magic.
