    I really enjoyed the tour. It was a long time in the road, 37 days, and we covered many of the must see place in India. I was glad that I saw the south as well as it is really beautiful there. Some of my feedback (I am not sure on the next pages... Read more

    2.0 - Rather poor

    37 days on India is too long especially during off season. The north was really hot, the south was cooler but not as lively due to monsoon season. As a basic trip nothing us included but transportation and hotel. The hotels don't all have AC or wifi and... Read more

    Intrepid Travel commented on this review
    Dear Tina, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. We were disappointed to read that your Iconic India trip did not meet your expectations. Our Basix trips are designed with budget travellers in mind, meaning we use local transport, stay in simple (but clean and central) accommodation, and include plenty of free time, with lots of optional activities, to allow passengers to spend their money as they like. This style of travel is not for everyone and we are very sorry to hear that you found it wasn’t for you. We would love an opportunity to more fully understand your experience as feedback from our passengers is essential towards improving all that we do. Please feel free to contact our Customer Relations team who will be happy to further address your concerns: Thanks again and we look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Intrepid Travel

    Travellers from HRC trip were indifferent to new people joining. I\'m not sure if this was just a one-time case or an issue that needs to be looked into.

    The india unplugged is an amazing trip and very well organised. The trip exceeded my expectations. The itinerary provided the right amount of time to feel satisfied.

    Great trip but I think on the first night the tour leader should stay withthe group and help everyone to get to know each other, he left us to fend for ourselves after giving directions. Other then this he was a very efficient tour leader.

    the trip (both in the north and south) was amazing - i couldn\'t have seen as much if i had travelled alone or met as many wonderful people or experienced the real india in the way that this trip allowed! thank you!

    4.0 - Good

    I found the local payment for this trip very expensive for a country like India where most things are very cheap. I think the money would have been better spent on more expensive hotels with A/C as there are so many power cuts, especially in the south.
