              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... Show more

              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... Show more

              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!

              the north and south are so diverse - this is an amazing way to get a taste of both and really get the most out of your trip! :)

              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.

            Frequently asked questions

            • Is the flight from Delhi to Trivandrum included?

              The tour price does not include any flights, whether domestic or international or any airport transfers, as we have travellers from all over the world. You will need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed.

              As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. We recommend that you do not book your flights until your place on the tour has been confirmed. Check out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner to book your flight - https://flights.tourradar.com

            • Can you help us process our visas if needed?

              Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.
