Risa "The Indian Getaway was everything I had hoped for and more. The accommodations fit our needs perfectly and the transportation to and from were well arranged. The activities were plentiful, and there were many (optional) activities to do if you’re like me and don’t need much of a break in between things. I think we lucked out and got Intrepid’s best group leader (in my opinion) Guarang who went out..."

    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

    I haven't been able to go on this tour because each time I have tried it has been 'on request' and the tour has either 'gone up in price' once I reserved my space or has no space left but is still featured on a number of websites for that date. We have moved our whole trip around 3 times and had to wait for a rejection before rearranging our trip. Don't be disappointing like I have been and miss out on your holiday because you relied on tourradar or intrepid. If its on request, look elsewhere.

    I had no expectation and we had an amazing guide, the accommodation was ok, hotels were cold and hot water was an issue, train delay was 10 hours and then another 10 extra on the train due to weather and being delayed, we lost two days of the tour due to train delay, the sites we saw were amazing

    The trip was good and what I expected, except for some big train delays. The tour guide, Yaddo, was excellent.

    I loved this trip! The tour guide Jetu was wonderful...he was knowledgeable, (introduced us to places, people and experiences we would probably not have seen/done with a "non-insider") I always felt safe with him even in the midsts of the madness of Delhi, he resolved the (small) problems I had quickly and efficiently, he was patient, friendly and professional.i loved the "local" experiences we had with him (the temple lunch and visit to village "in the sticks") and also liked being able to buy a few things from craftsmen but with him at our side which meant I didn't feel hassled and knew we were being treated well. The only reason I put "good" and not "excellent" was due to the accomodation which for India was FINE (you can't expect to much!) But can't be described as "excellent". I did however feel warm (I was there in December) and safe and the service was good.some were noisy, but India IS noisy - but nothing a good pair of earplugs couldn't resolve! The bed linen and toilets/rooms were clean, the windows always dirty - I don't know why! The group of people I travelled with were really nice too - but I guess that is luck of the draw. I feel very satisfied and am happy I chose Intrepid, will be travelling with them again in the future.

    Fabulous tour ! great accommodation especially for a basix tour. loved every minute of it especially overnight stay in Tordi Garth ! Could not ask for better, the others in the group and guide made the tour. Danesh really went above and beyond for everyone on the tour to make sure everyone had a memorable time. He provided lots of information, history and guidance and organised activities specific to our needs. Danesh is the best !

The activities were plentiful, and there were many (optional) activities to do if you’re like me and don’t need much of a break in between things. I think we lucked out and got Intrepid’s best group leader (in my opinion) Guarang who went out of his way to make sure we were always safe and comfortable (literally jumped out in crazy Indian traffic so we can cross the street safely). Overall 10/10 would definitely do it again!

    Transportation and accommodation being set up made the tour worth it, but everything else was extremely average. The "optional" activities weren't very optional and many included activities felt very rushed. I don't have other group tours to compare it to, but I don't think I would do another one based on my experience.
