Sarah "I love Intrepid and the food tours are the best of all. Our guide Charles was a wealth of knowledge, fun and cool unusual experiences. The variety of food was amazing as was the accommodation - even staying in a royal palace! Lots of cooking experiences with locals and eating at the kind of places you would never find on your own. Best of al this was a trip all about eating in India and not on..."

    Pancham was a friendly, helpful and experienced guide who expertly tried to accomodate the needs of every group member. The tour was well organised and managed. The only grievance is that, for a food tour, too many of the meals were inauthentic/at hotels.

    I gave this score because I enjoyed almost every experience offered and mainly because of how wonderful Pancham was. He really made my trip wonderful and made sure I did everything I wanted to.

    I thought there would be more hands on cooking on this trip. I thought the cooking lessons/demos were better in the south portion Having said that, I did enjoy the trip a lot.

      The prices were very competitive and what I really liked was that it was in my local currency. When I booked the confirmation came back in good time. Since then I have received more correspondence regarding the trip, which is good to see and very informative.
