Intrepid india or go it alone ?

Jump to last reply

I have been trying to put together a Northern india itinerary for a 28 day trip but have been getting bogged down in all the details and logistics. Train timetables, places to go, guesthouses etc.

I am an experienced traveller, 47 years old and have backpacked on numerous occasions but wonder if i am getting to the point where taking some of the stress out of travel would be a good thing.

i normally hate being tied to a timetable and being pushed from place to place, normally preferring to relax and get to know a place a little better. adapt my schedule according to likes and dislikes. I am a photographer and can spend hours attempting to get that ideal sunrise or special moment.

However i have still been considering an Intrepid tour and then a week on my own in a chosen favourite location. i was considering one of Intrepid's 22 day Rajestan tours and then take a week to explore Varanasi in depth.

So Intrepid ? How are they ? It seems you pay a lot more to take the hassle out of the trip. Comments and opinions on organised group travel please.

Thanks , Phillip
