This study tour has been a once in a life time experience for sure! You really get to experience the heart of South India and gain a valuable perspective on business in another country. From the Tea-laden mountains of Ooty to the vast backwaters of Kerala, to the jam-packed mega-cities of Bangalore and Chennai, you get to experience the real South India. And from all the friendly and personable people you meet, you get to experience South India's heart. A good balance of getting the tourist experience (visiting all the incredible sights) and the local experience (attending festivals, visiting homes, getting a good glimpse into India, behind-the-scenes). The businesses you visit for the supply chain tour are a wide variety of industries. Some are very traditional whilst others are very modern, all providing a varied, interesting and valuable learning experience. Can't speak highly enough of the guest quarters - five star service, five star facilities. You are in very safe, friendly and knowledgeable hands with Giles Brooker Education and BIT. Lots of laughter, lots of learning.
