    5.0 - Excellent

    fantastic trip with Intrepid, brilliant, resourceful, friendly guides on both parts of tour North and South - felt very safe and looked after but we also had scope for adventures and exploration beyond the organised programme. The whole trip gave a great insight into how India is many countries - rich and poor, urban and rural, traditional and modern ( and believe me 4 weeks is only scratching the surface!) We got to experience a little bit of how real Indians live and work and the challenges they face in such a fast changing world. Thanks Intrepid - I'll be back and will be recommending to everyone

    A very nice trip which gave us a variety of experiences in South India. It allowed us a chance to appreciate the differences from the north in both culture and cuisine.

    5.0 - Excellent

    The 2 halves of this trip were excellent. The join in the middle was an expensive, stressful mess. I would advise against a combined trip in India as Delhi airport can\'t cope.

    Mountains and Mystics Tour with G.A.P. (Great Adventure People). Places visited: Delhi, Shimla, Mandi, Dharamsala, Dalhousie, Chamba Valley and Amristsar. AWESOME!!! Highlights: Meeting The Dalhi Lama in Dharamsala, Trekking through the Chamba Valley and seeing Bear footprints, Indian Cusine. Taking local buses. Being chased by huge monkeys. Tips: Eat where the locals do and not at pricey restaurants where there are Westerners as Indian people use fresh produce and are not use to cooking from a fridge or freezer which are found at expensive hotels.

    Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
