Getting around India whilst on holiday

 

Road Travel: Airport transfers and road travel at each port of call will be in our own chauffeur driven, private air-conditioned vehicles of modern European standard.

 

Air Travel: We recommend covering large distances by internal flights which are normally on scheduled services with local airlines.

 

Train Travel: This is a convenient, time-cutting and comfortable way to travel on long distances where the roads are more difficult to navigate.

 

Living it Local: Like accommodation India also covers the full spectrum when it comes to travelling around. Aside of the trains, planes and automobiles we offer some of our excursions in true authentic Indian style such as rickshaws, horse and carts, camel safaris, small motorised boats and even rides on elephant back. 4x4 jeeps will be used in the National Parks when going in search of the elusive tiger.

 

Pricing Guidelines for a Tailor-made Holiday in India

 

Prices can vary considerably for tailor-made travel as the quality of hotels, places visited and time of travel is entirely up to you. In addition, you may choose to have a private guide to escort your right through your holiday in India, or simply have the services of local Indian guides at each port of call.

 

Prices also vary dependent upon the number of people in your travelling party, as fixed costs like transportation and guiding are shared across each group.

 

For an indication of the sorts of prices to expect for a private holiday in India please have a look at some of the Private Journeys featured on our website. These are based on two people travelling, sharing a twin/double room.

 

Our group tours can be done on a private basis too, and this option will typically be less expensive than a 100% tailor-made holiday. So depending on your budget, a private group tour or one of our featured private itineraries might be worth consideration.
