Off the beaten track (OTBT) was set up in the mid 90’s to enable friends and acquaintances who were keen on independent travel to Kerala / South India (long before it became a top notch destination in travel magazines and guides) to get a true feel for the region, experience the culture, customs and traditional food whilst gaining a unique perspective that comes through the interaction with local people and families of good standing, by residing with them.
We featured homestays as the main focus combining it with heritage hotels and beach resorts. Our pioneering homestay tailormade tours to the region have now become a mainstay in most tailormade and independent tours to Kerala and South India and much sought after by the discerning traveller because of its memorable experiences and suitability for couples, families and retired folks who have more time to spare.
Linking up with our partners in the region, we were able to take discerning & independent travellers to the heart and soul of Kerala and South India and were not constrained by the geographical location of resorts or hotels.
Most visitors went as 'curious' guests but have come back having made good, firm friendships and stayed in touch.
Referrals by satisfied clients has been the mainstay of our business .
We don’t aim to be the largest nor the biggest so that prospective clients don’t become a serial or tour number ruining the personalised nature of our unique tour.
