  • Why we love India

    • With a population of well over a billion, and the seventh largest in size of all countries, it’s no wonder India is a country of many personalities.
    • Supercharged, technicolour Delhi offers as wild and vivid a ride as any city-explorer one could wish for, while the nearby sensual delights of the Taj Mahal and Udaipur offer a soothing counterpoint
    • No trip to India is complete without a cup of Chai from a roadside stall – this is the smell and taste of India
    • In Karauli we stay in the palace Maharaja Ganesh Pal Deo Bhadur built in 1938 for himself and his guests, where his family still lives today
    • In Sri Lanka, palm-fringed beaches skirt an emerald isle of high tea plantations, uncommon hospitality and ancient Buddhist pilgrim trails
    • Time spent on Kerala’s waters makes for idyllic exploration while another watery attraction, Varanasi, offers a unique spectacle of devotion that both excites and humbles

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

    Top 5 benefits of travelling with kids

    It’s often thought that once you have children your opportunities to travel suddenly become limited to European holiday resorts with high-rise hotels and a Kids’ Club run by a sweaty man in a giant purple dolphin suit.

    I booked through Intrepid travel. I loved the tour and found all the places we visited fascinating, information from our tour guide and guides at the places visited was good. It was an amazing, hectic experience. I will definitely do another trip through Intrepid/Peregrine.

    Essence of South India

    Overall Rating

    Very diverse and interesting travels covering both east and west coasts, plus interior of south India. 'Total Holidays' and the bus transport companies were of a very professional standard,with excellent drivers.The hotels were of a varying standard but I realise that this was often due to lack of choice; however all were clean and well serviced.
