Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Do you give consideration to the age limit?

      The age limits are already pre-set by the tour operator and this is something we do not have discretion on. We can assist you in finding a similar better-suited tour.

    • Where can I get an accurate currency conversion?

      The most convenient and cheapest way to obtain local currency is via an Automated Teller Machine (ATM), which are readily available in most towns. Look for Bank of India or ICICI ATM's. Our experience has shown they are the most reliable ATM.
