The tour was well planned out, Good two night stops so everyone could have a break when needed. Very organised. Chetan is a excellent tour leader. His knowledge and charisma just shines. His explanations and organisation skills are more than exceptional and was always very social and I loved his enthusiasm and he is always smiling. He is an absoloute credit to Intrepid and was always approachable for any questions or queries I had. He was always making sure everyone on the group was comfortable and had a great lustre for his home country.

Without a doubt Anand is an exceptionally skilled and competent tour guide. He is the best tour guide that I have ever experienced with any company, and the best tour guide on any Intrepid trip I have taken. He is an asset to your company. Not only did he constantly go above and beyond what was required to make the trip exciting and memorable, but also went out of his way to facilitate extra activities for myself and all of the guests on the tour, who all had very different ages and interests. He arranged henna, fireworks, dancers, group dinners, etc. all incredible experiences not included in the itinerary but suggested and arranged by him for the group's benefit. Not only did he make all the extra work he was doing behind the scenes look easy, but also managed to make the trip itself an incredibly fun experience and one which truly captured the culture of India for travels. India can be incredibly chaotic but Anand co-ordinated everything so smoothly that every single thing on the trip went perfectly. If there was ever little problems like a bad traffic or a long time on a train without food, he would arrange things for all the guests so that everyone would be comfortable, but really, he so effectively organised everything that we didn't even notice. To top it all off, Anand himself has a great, positive, friendly personality that connected with everyone on the tour, bringing everyone together with his warmth and funny stories. I am just writing this review because I believ
