India Tours & Vacations

There’s probably no other country on the planet that blazes its way into your memory like India.

Years later, you can still hear the morning calls of the chai wallahs; see smoke curling over the Ganges during a golden Varanasi sunrise, and smell the rich aromas of simmering curry. A lot of India tours rush from highlight to highlight, ticking them off in a blur of temples and tikka. But not us. Our India holidays are more about spotting Bengal tigers in Ranthambhore or Panna National Park, hanging with nomads in Jaisalmer, meeting the holy men of Pushkar, or hunting down the best street eats. This isn’t just the India you see on postcards. This is India as it is. Raw, bizarre and totally addictive.

India's Golden Triangle

Sue · Traveled March 2024
I did a 7 day Intrepid tour of the Golden Triangle in India. Doing more than a day tour hasn’t really been my thing over many years of travelling but I am absolutely glad I did this tour. The tour leader, itinerary, transport and accommodation were terrific and the group itself was great fun. We could never have covered so much ground or enjoyed ourselves as much had we done the itinerary independently.

Classic South India

Elizabeth · Traveled March 2024
The Classic South India tour was an excellent trip but very hot in March. The humidity was extreme. Dec/Feb would be a much better choice. Only 11 on our trip, mostly Aussies and 2 English ladies and all were great company. Our tour leader Afshar was brilliant and there was a great variety of activities including a nature walk (no elephant or tiger sightings) and Kerala backwater cruise which was an extra cost of 3500 INR. Hotels at the comfort level were very nice overall and great service from all staff. Our driver Vinot and his assistant Barty were lovely and always looked out for us and greeted us with the biggest smiles. Overall a fantastic 2 weeks was had by all. I can't recommend Intrepid enough for a worry free trip.
