    "On "Jordan Discovery" tour. Learn about the culture before you go and learn at least a few useful words in Arabic. People appreciate when you dress respectfully and at least make an attempt to speak to them in their own language. The Jordanian people were some of the most hospitable people I've ever met."

    "I had an amazing tour. This awe is due to our fantastic tour leader, Bagirath Purohit. He was the best. Each day he modestly promised to surpass the previous day experience which he did so well. I couldn't name one highlight in particular as there were just so many; and each day I just opened my eyes to a new and wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this tour to my friends and family as it catered to a wide range of ages. I look forward to more Intrepid adventures and this trip will be the bench mark and it has been set very high. Thank you Baghi!!"

    "Classic Rajasthan was an amazing tour. Incredible tour leader Bhagi was so good in every regard. Accommodation was beautiful as we stayed in forts and palaces as well as clean hotels. Our transport was a mixture of bus and local trains, etc. I felt relaxed and enjoyed every minute of my holiday. I highly recommend this trip!"
