Why you'll love this trip
  • India is bursting with colour, alive with people, dripping with the powerful smells of spice and incense. Immerse yourself with the sights and smells as you walk through the markets and bazaars.
  • Nothing compares to seeing the Taj Mahal it in person in the glowing morning light. It will definitely make sense why this 17th century masterpiece has attracted worldwide acclaim.
  • Explore through the depths of the Ranthambhore National Park – it’s like the Jungle Book has been brought to life! Keep your eyes peeled for gazelle, antelopes and the stealthy Bengal tiger.
  • Discover the traditional and vibrant city of Jaipur, full of colourful ornate buildings, and understand why its known as the Pink City.
  • Experience a special stay in a 17th-century palace in Alsisar – with its grand courtyards and colourful arcades, you (and your kids!) will feel like royalty.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Positive Change for Marine Life. Donations help them to nurture ocean health with community-led conservation initiatives that inspire coastal restoration, sustainable fishing practices and waste-management.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip involves some long bus and train rides, which can be tiresome but offer a quintessential experience of the Indian landscape and people.
  • Sleeper trains are clean and air-conditioned and a great way to travel long distances while still getting maximum time in each place. Beds are padded berths with sheets, pillow and blanket provided (although some families prefer to bring their own sleeping sheet).
  • We visit a number of temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes that cover the arms and pants/skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

My 7 year old daughter absolutely loved this trip. The friends she had to play with, the safari, animals we saw along the way and fed, stay at a Mahal, and Chandra our guide made this trip very very special. It was a truly authentic Indian experience that I think she will always remember.

When my mum said we were going to India, I didn't know what to expect. But as soon as we arrived I knew it was going to be a place like nowhere else. This trip let us experience incredible sights and culture. Highly recommend it. Our guide and driver were also incredible.

The collision of magic and mayhem, the bonkers and the beautiful, the intensity and charm, made India an extraordinary destination for my daughters and I. This trip was a remarkable introduction to a remarkable country - it's a packed itinerary, to be sure, but well balanced in terms of sites and activities. We were truly blessed with an exceptional and knowledgeable (and fun!) guide in Mahaveer, and our driver Kishan deserves a huge amount of credit for safely getting us to each destination on the controlled chaos that is Indian roads. I'm normally an independent traveller but I was very happy to have chosen Intrepid for this trip. It was meaningful and memorable, and I highly recommend it.

Excellent trip, very well organized. We were a bit worried about food safety, but everything turned out to be great.
