    It was a great introduction to India. I think the trip would be better if run in reverse order and the option to have an upgrade, if desired, on the sleeper trains would have been a definite plus. The diversity of sights was just about perfect. The... Read more

    Very hard to book through tourradar and book with intrepid. For us it was more difficult to liase with them than previous tours we have organised and done without a company or guide. Consider going straight to intrepid

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is a single supplement available?

      The single supplement is not mandatory for this tour, as travellers can be roomed with a fellow traveller of the same sex for no additional cost. This is a great way to get to know your group and enrich your travel experience! If you would prefer a little more privacy, a single supplement can be paid (subject to availability) which will guarantee you your own room for the duration of the tour. Please contact our Travel Experts for a quote.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      Intrepid is unable to provide a hotel list as all accommodations are subject to change until 4 weeks before the departure date. That being said to give you an idea on the type of accommodation on this tour, you will be staying 3 nights on heritage property, 5 nights in hotels and 2 nights on an overnight sleeper train. An example of a hotel that Intrepid generally stays at on this tour is Hotel Perfect.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour will end in the morning on the last day of the tour at Hotel Perfect and it is now time to say farewell to Delhi! Check-out time is at 12 pm, but you are free to leave at any time. If you are departing later than 12 pm, you can arrange luggage storage at the hotel. Please be aware the hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Leslie3rd September 2018
      It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
