This small group tour, led by a local expert, will give you the perfect introduction to India and its three most famous attractions, the iconic Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur, discovering the fascinating contrasts, gaining insights into Indian culture and its religions, delving into its past as you explore the rich heritage of its forts and palaces, and browsing through the colourful bazaars.
Team Select's Amy has experienced this tour as her own personal holiday and had an amazing time. You can read all about her experiences on her blog, although she will be happy to share her experiences with you.
"I had the time of my life discovering India's iconic Golden Triangle with Intrepid. The group was full with twelve travellers, but it was the perfect size, and a nice mix of people from the UK, US and Australia, and a range of ages. It's also ideal for solo travellers (and there were several in our group), because you get to mix in with like-minded people, and if you want a room of your own the single room supplement is very reasonable. Our tour guide Kush was fantastic - his local knowledge really helped us make the most of the trip, and things were organised so smoothly. The tour had a perfect mix of tourist must-do attractions and off-the-beaten-track, authentic experiences. I really want to go back to India to explore more with Intrepid!'

*No single supplement - based on sharing accommodation with a member of the same sex. However if you require or prefer a room of your own, please note that a small surcharge will apply
**Please note that from April 2017, the Taj Mahal's main dome will undergo mud pack therapy, making it likely the dome will be obscured by iron scaffolding, and portions of the white marble facade will be covered in mud and plastic sheets during the cleaning process. The restorations will be carried out in sections, and the work is expected to last one year.
