SUV/MUV cars: For tours of 3 to 5 people we use Maruti Ertiga and Toyota Cresta cars.

Vans: For tours of 5 to 8 people we use Tempo Traveller vans. 

 

Note: We do not charge a flat "per day" price, instead our price is based on a combination of the number of travel days and kilometers. This way we can create a travel itinerary that best meets your interests and budget.

Premium: A superior level of accommodation in upmarket hotels and former palaces. Approximately 4-5 stars. 

 

All accommodation options include free breakfast (if the hotels are booked by us).

We do not require a deposit for our Car + Driver option (unless the tour is to start from a city other than Delhi).

We require advance payment for non-refundable train and airline bookings, as well as some special arrangements.

 

Refunds: we endeavour to refund deposits where prior refundable hotels bookings are made. However some hotels in our premium package require full payment at the time of booking and do not give refunds for late cancellations.

 

We recommend all our guests take out private travel insurance in the event of unforeseen circumstances which require total cancellation.
