India is a big country and there are some long travel days on this departure. Use these as an opportunity to relax, witness everyday life from the window of your vehicle and to get to know your fellow travellers.
This trip travels by overnight train from Udaipur to Mumbai. While the overnight train can seem a little daunting, it is a very efficient way to travel long distances and maximising time in each place. Note that long distance and overnight trains can often be delayed and occasionally cancelled due to heavy fog between Dec-Feb.
This trip stays in a mix of accommodation to experience a variety of Indian life. Standards can vary though – there will be hot water in most but not all hotels.
The climate in India can vary in the different states – be prepared for hot sticky days and cooler evenings. Layers are the best way to tackle this disparity in weather.
Old Delhi can be very busy and crowded. While it’s an exciting place to see local life moving around you, be aware that on the walking tour you’ll need to navigate through people, tight spaces and walkways.
This itinerary is valid for departures from 01 January 2017 to 31 December 2017. View the itinerary for departures between 01 January 2018 - 31 December 2018

Our Real Food Adventure - India trips score an average of 4.81 out of 5 based on 219 reviews in the last year.
Be prepared for long travel days which impacts the amount of time you get in some amazing places. You will get to meet some great people and learn some new cooking skills and taste some amazing food. I would have liked minimal time in Delhi and longer in Karauli and Bijaipur and Udaipur and I would take Goa off as the travel required for Goa uses up too much time. Overall it was a great experience and the few downsides did not detract from us having a fabulous time.

The Real Food Adventure was an excellent trip, it is fast paced and filled with great experiences. I was tired at the end, but it was worth it.
