Join Professor Scott Pearson on the ultimate exploration of the subcontinent; a Grand Tour encompassing India’s many highlights. 

Southern accent. Admire the colorful gods and monsters that adorn the Dravidian Hindu temples of the southern state of Tamil Nadu and the sculptural and pictorial Buddhist art of Maharashtra’s Ajanta and Ellora caves. Northern lights. Cruise the Ganges in chaotic Varanasi, explore the castle-forts of Rajasthan and contemplate the power of the Mughal Empire at the incomparable Taj Mahal. But wait, there’s more! Kick off the Grand Tour with a pre-trip extension to Kochi. Visit the Dutch Palace and Pardesi Synagogue and float through the tropical lagoons of the Kerala backwaters on a houseboat.
