India & Sri Lanka food tours

Discover the spice-filled splendour of Indian and Sri Lankan food

Inspired by dozens of ethnic subcultures, the flavours of Indian and Sri Lankan cuisine are as rich as the histories that have influenced them. From the dizzying streets of Delhi to the majestic palaces of Udaipur, and the lush countryside of Kandy to the sandy shores of Mirissa, our itineraries are packed with authentic experiences that will delight and surprise even the most seasoned tastebuds. Taste fresh aloo paratha, tamarind chutney, chaat from roadside snack vendors, home-cooked Rajasthan curry and Sri Lankan tea picked straight from the plantation. You’ll never look at curry in the same way again.

Explore the flavours of India. Be Open. Be Intrepid.

India & Sri Lanka food highlights

Why choose us

Real, authentic experiences

We love the highlights, but for us, the real magic is found off the tourist trails. Our trips combine iconic sites with hidden gems that you’ll only discover with Intrepid. We’re talking mornings exploring the Taj Mahal, followed by a Mughlai cooking class with a passionate home cook.

Local expertise

Whether you’re perusing markets, hunting down the best street food bites or learning how to cook centuries-old family recipes at a homestay, there’s no better way to get the inside scoop on a destination – and its culinary traditions – than with an expert local leader by your side.

Small groups

Big coaches and flag-toting tour guides don’t cut it for us. With a maximum group size of 12, our groups blend in with the locals and have plenty of opportunities to interact with chefs, street food vendors and group leaders. It also means you can really connect with your fellow foodies.

Amazing food, accommodation, scenery and people! My first group tour in over 20 years exceeded all my expectations. Prageeth was an exceptional guide and the food was out of this world. Just wish I'd packed my goggles every hotel has a pool!!

Sri Lanka is a fantastic country with so much to offer - I can’t recommend enough. Intrepid, with their excellent and passionate guides will give you a truly authentic experience and often of the beaten track and away from other foreign tourists. I highly recommend and am now inspired to visit other parts of the island, not included in this trip!

Our leader Pragee was excellent and he went over and above his job with any request . I would recommend this tour if you love food and the cultural experiences . Well worth it !
