FAMTrips.travel and Perillo’s Learning Journeys are leading travel agents on a FAM that explores the more spiritual side of southern India.
During the 9-day Spiritual Southern India FAM, travel advisors will have the opportunity to participate in optional daily yoga sessions; learn about the spiritual life and journeys of Mata Amritanandamayi, known throughout the world as Amma; visit community service projects focusing on education and women’s empowerment; learn how to prepare Indian dishes with a local chef; visit a wildlife sanctuary, and more. Departing on Nov. 3, 2018, the Spiritual Southern India FAM begins in Cochin, also known as Kochi, where advisors will spend three nights before moving on to Thekkedy. Day six will be spent on a house boat exploring the Kerala backwaters. Advisors will stay overnight on the boat then head to Kollam the next day for a visit to Amma’s center for spirituality, inspiration, and love for humanity. The final two days of the trip will be spent at the five-star Vasundhara Sarovar Premier resort. Other highlights of the Spiritual Southern India FAM include visiting a Hindu temple and a spice plantation, riding an elephant, and witnessing a Kathkali dance show.
Pricing for this FAM starts at $1,699 pp dbl with a $650 single supplement. Travel advisors can also bring a companion for an additional $200. This price includes all meals, accommodations, entrance fees, transportation, and English-speaking guides.
