- It is NOT about how far, how fast or how much you see. Instead it is about the depth of experience and your closeness to the local people and place.

Here is what people say about us
Managed to make time for holidays. Especially leaving the family behind and going on a solo-holiday was a new experience for me. And it was worth it. The experiences were simply mind-blowing and connections I made were so valuable that each person in this tour seemed like the missing person in my life. Members in the group. The spirit of service shown by every team member of MAI team. The hospitality of owners where we stayed and the amazing food. I particularly loved the backwater stay and the auto-rickshaw village tour experience. Everyone looked stunning in the Kerala attire and it felt completely different. I could not imagine a better experience than this in Kerala. Yes, I have spoken to at least 10 people about this tour and all of them are excited. The photos say so much and everyone just get excited when they listen to the tribal songs I recorded on my phone. The backwaters, the tribal songs, the home stays and the jeep safari were the highlights of the tour. The welcome kit was a surprise element and the bus travel was very comfortable. Mad About India make us Mad About India. I am inspired by the true spirit of service and genuine happiness which the Mad About India team wants to give to its customers.
Had this been bigger group or group of known people, I would have said No It was an opportunity to meet new people and make friends .Explored certain parts of interior part of Kerala, met some wonderful people. Food was highlight for me, Homely food, choice of few properties and opportunity to try something different, fishing etc Time to soak-up pleasure of activity and experience, and some leisure time.
Perfectly drafted itinerary and Authentic Kerala cuisine. Yes to all as am sure max people should experience this True Kerala flavour, Hats off to the Whispers of Kerala team for getting us in touch with Authentic Kerala Cuisine and way of life. A life time memory to cherish. Eagerly waiting for their new launches in other parts of India! WAY TO GO WHISPERS TEAM ....GOD BLESS U ALL
Locations, Eye for detail, Care for small needs, variety of local food that was provided during the stays, the 'homely' touch in food at Emerald isle and Vanilla County, When it comes to touring, there are a lot of tour operators who often sell a dream package and the experience is usually quite not the same. With Rajni's new venture MAI, his madness, passion, home-feel and his love for India is all packaged into these tours. The experience was more than my expectation. I was happy to be a part of his initial tour "Whispers of Kerala" and got to experience a tour that saved me a lot of planning [thus time], had a lot of fun and made new friends.
Inhibitions of having been to Kerala 3 times before and perception of having done similar kind of things before was the only thing that would have prevented me from buying Whispers of Kerala tour Another issue which was lingering in the mind was going for vacation with completely unknown people in a group - something that I had never done before!! A new way of looking at Kerala! Living like locals and enjoying local cuisine and music was the biggest highlight. I have already shared details with a few people around.
