How different is Solo/Friends to Couple to Family to Bachelors?
Solo/Friends is specifically meant for young people who want and are ready to travel with Freedom. See things on their terms, feel cities as per their wish, live the way they would have thought to live. You will be living in Hostels and at very few places, Hotels. One needs to understand Hostels are costlier than Hotels but we would still pursue you to stay in Hostels because that is what you are going to remember all along. We have chosen the best of Hostels for you.

Couples have both the options of Solo/Friends as well as the Couple option. If the couple is going for adventure and fun, they can choose the Solo/Friends option itself but if they are going on Honeymoon or a leisure tour, they can choose from the Couple option. The couple option is a bit more sophisticated in terms of Hotels, Transfers and everything. We will be avoiding Night transfers at as many places as possible.

Family will have the most sophistication of all. A proper 2Adults + 1-2 Children room. If the family is 2+2 Adults, two rooms will be provided or a Two-Bedroom Family suite will be looked into. Night transfers will be very very less. Add-on Services will play a major part for the Families and they will be explained properly by our Operations team.

Couple and Family have 3 types of Options to choose the Tour from:
  1. Standard
  2. Premium
  3. Luxury
  • Standard will involve a small amount of trouble here and there.
    For ex: Night transfers by Bus once or twice at max, 2-3 star Hotels (Believe us, they will be way way better than what you would have just thought of. To provide you a measure, 4 star hotels in India are equivalent of 2/3 star hotels there).
  • Premium will involve 4 star hotels, almost none Night transfers, Train and Flight transfers.
  • Luxury will involve 5 star hotels, 1st Class Train Transfers or Flight transfers, Intra-city transfers and even Guide services for the places they will be visiting.

    BACHELORS itineraries are friends going on the final last tour before one of them becomes a Couple. A highly exclusive service is provided in this case and so we have kept things open. They can simply call +91-8447449093 and ask about the enquiry. With our customize feature (launching it soon), you will be able to book things by yourself.
