Travel from cities packed with impressive monuments to the welcoming and simple surrounds of rural villages and the wildlife-filled countryside beyond. Hop aboard the moving town that is an Indian train and watch the colourful landscape fly by as the chai wallah walks down the aisle singing about his tea.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Everyone’s seen a photo of the Taj Mahal, but nothing compares to seeing it in person in the glowing morning light – you and your family will understand what beauty really is.
  • Feel the excitement build as you visit Ranthambhore National Park to hopefully catch a glimpse of a Bengal tiger stalking through the jungle.
  • Experience the moving town that is an Indian train – watch the colourful landscape fly by as the chai wallah walks down the aisle singing about his tea
  • India is bursting with colour, alive with people, dripping with the powerful smells of spice and incense – you and your family will never forget what you smell, taste and see as you walk through the markets and bazaars
  • Enjoy classic, historical accommodation and a softer landing in this chaotic country on this comfort trip
  • 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.

Intrepid India Family Comfort with 2 other families was just plain fun! India for 9 days was only a taste of the fascinating place that it is. The variety Intrepid can jam into an itinerary is amazing and our holiday was truly that - stress free. Can’t recommend it enough

Our India trip was just fantastic. Good pace, so much ground covered in only 10 days, but it didn’t feel rushed. We were also lucky to have Chandra, our guide who was the ultime professional in tour guides. He made small amendments to the trip to suit the the group’s wishes when required and made sure everyone was happy! We all loved it!

Wow! What an amazing adventure our family of 5 had. Our kids 12, 10 and 7 coped really well in such a different culture. Ravi our tour leader was sensational and made our trip so fulfilling and educational. Seeing 2 tigers in the wild on safari at Ranthambore was a highlight and the Taj Mahal words can’t describe. Just a brilliant experience with lifetime memories created.

His passion and excitement shone through in his story telling as he painted a masterpiece in our minds of the true India....it's culture, it's people and it's cultural and artistic highlights. This trip left an indelible mark in our hearts and minds that can never be erased. Thankyou Ravi and thankyou Intrepid for a true real life experience!
