    • 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.

      The tour price includes 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, 2 dinners.

      Unfortunately, TourRadar is unable to give vaccine advice due to the vast number of destinations which our customers visit, and the fact that things are always changing. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.
