About Us


At Green Foot Prints we believe that by creating incredible travel experiences which are environmentally sound and truly beneficial to local people, we are providing a service which is fundamentally different from conventional tourism. Green Foot Prints, in association with Green Palm Homes, Kerala has become a well trusted name amongst travellers throughout the world.


Mathew Zacharia (founder of Green Foot Prints) and his family have been hosting foreign visitors into their Keralan backwaters homestay for 25 years. Their philosophy has always been to support the local community and traditions by providing guests with authentic learning experiences of the local culture, natural surroundings and traditional way of life.


Mathew also worked as a tour guide for large travel companies in India for 5 years. His experience of leading foreign visitors on guided tours around India, running an Indian homestay and following his family's philosophy on responsible tourism, placed him in the ideal position to create Green Foot Prints.

Mathew's passions are Indian wildlife (especially birds), nature, culture and discovering unknown parts of India on his motorbike. He uses these passions to create unique and unforgettable travel experiences for you in India.
