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 December and February.
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. Layered clothing is 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 trip aims to give you an exciting, diverse and well-rounded experience of India's cuisine. India is a great place to travel for vegetarians and vegans - offering lots of choice and great quality fare. If you have dietary requirements, simply contact your agent at the time of booking for further information on how this may impact on your ability to take part in included activities and meals. Come with an open mind and open mouth, and you won’t be disappointed!

This trip through Northern India was a real treat! The food was amazing from street food, to cooking demonstrations to High Tea at the Taj in Mumbai. The trip was a food sensation! Spices everywhere you went! The local people we met along the way made this trip an incredible adventure. Book it, you definitely won't regret it and you will leave with a lifetime of memories. This was my second trip to India with Intrepid for a month and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It won't be my last trip there with Intrepid!

A fantastic tour that covers all the highlights (plus more) of India, with the added layer of food. Enjoy cooking demonstrations, trips to markets, and share in the cuisine with likeminded travellers. Christmas/New Year was a great time to travel as it wasn't hot. Dec/Jan is cold at night but lovely and warm in the day. Pack light by making a capsule wardrobe and do your laundry at the hotels during 2 night stays. Pack only what you need, you don't need much. You will be carrying your luggage to/on the train. Our group didn't get Delhi belly so don't stress and simply practice common sense. There were ATMs readily available so prepare to shop!! Carpets/rugs, custom clothing at tailors, jewellery from a specialist, hot air balloon was AMAZING. Bring a good camera/phone and a sense of adventure. If possible, request Chetan as your guide. I will be booking my South India adventure as soon as I'm able.
