Ray "The trip is as good as the other reviewers describe. I was lucky to have such a great group of people to travel with and a wonderful guide 'Happy'. Be aware that this is the 'basic' version. The hotels are generally in good condition however some rooms are better than other. Internet availability varies.

    They basic tour itself was fine, accommodation was clean, pretty standard. Having all transportation organising was great for a first timer to India, overnight train we're good, buses too. The tour guide kush, was very horrific. His walking tours were of poor quality and always a rush to get back to the hotel, asking questions resulted in him rabling off on topics that were not relevant or talking in circles. He was quite rude and narrow minded toward conversation about other cultures, and at times disrespectful to us. When we were taken to "intrepid freindly shops" to buy items, we were clearly being told prices that were for tourist, when we'd try bargain for a reasonable price, kush would step in, tell us that it's the off season, that these are the prices and at times was very aggressive toward the female members of the tour. Then can the tipping kitty; He over charged us from what the intrepid guide had quoted, and was noticed being too generous with was was group money to his "friends". When he was asked to provide the itemised list he, quoted that he had been paying for the transfer to and from bus station and train stations ( which are included in the tour), tipping bag boys, that didn't carry any bags, and paying for thing that clearly don't charge as much as he'd noted. When questioned in private about these charges he got very defensive and aggressive, and had to be repeatedly told to calm down and to let others speak. Then the following day, he singled out the people that questioned him and twisted everything around, producing a new "revised list", saying that we were miss informed etc. Overall, It felt like they just hired a random guy with no knowledge or worldly personal experience and he saw us as white tourist that were made of money for him to exploit. The intrepid tour I'd probably recommend, but if that's the guide you're in for the worst tip of your life.

    Overall this was a great tour. The accommodations were very basic as expected. The hotel we stayed in Jalsamair was exceptional due to the location high up at the top of the fort. Most of the transportation was adequate. The train ride from Agra to Varanasi was delayed numerous times making it a 24 hour journey.. apparently this is known to happen frequently with this train as our guide mentioned delays before we even left. It was a miserable ride using up a lot of our precious time in Varanasi. Many of us talked about flying back to delhi. I would gladly have payed a little more to have flown instead of this train. Our guide was a great person. She was very personable and fun. She is very young and new to being a guide. I think with a little more experience she will be a great guide. I do feel we missed out on a few things because of lack of information. It would have been nice to have a little more history and information. It also would have been good to do the orientation walks as soon as we got to a new city. We ended up doing a lot of initial exploring when we first got there and then it was repeated on the orientation walk.

    I was in India for 3 months in total and the Intrepid tour was the perfect way to finish off my India journey! The tour itinerary was really well thought out and the accomodation was gorgeous! From camping in the desert in Jaisalmer, to the lush land and lakes of Udaipur, to the hustle and bustle of Jaipur and Delhi, this tour has it all! I loved how the tour was so flexible as well, we had lots of free time to do our own thing and explore outside of the tour itinerary but the option of other activities was always offered to us too which was really nice. Also a special mention in here for our tour leader Anant! He already knows this but he was incredible! He really went that extra mile to ensure everyone was comfortable and always enjoying themselves throughout our trip. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone thinking of travelling to India! You will love it!

    I Didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. It was an amazing adventure!! The accommodation was good considering it was a budget tour, we stayed at some really nice places. Our tour guide Makendra was amazing , it was a well organised tour , he made seamless. We did most of the optional tours ... loved the experience. Food was good around $5-7AU dollars , activities were around $5-10 Au dollars .. very affordable. Love the camel ride and sleeping under the stars . All in all highly recommend this tour.

    • James12th May 2018
      I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
