This is India. Driving times in parentheses are not guaranteed and do not include lunch, tea, photography or bathroom breaks.

Meals and entrance fees to attractions (except where noted) are not included in package price. Entrance fees can range from a few rupees to US$10. The Taj Mahal is currently about US$20. Dual pricing is common at attractions and monuments, which means foreigners pay more than Indian citizens, sorry.

Your driver can help with restaurant selections. A good Indian meal can be had for $8.00. You would be hard pressed to spend more than $10 at the fanciest restaurant unless you are in a five star hotel. Alcohol is available in all cities enroute except for Pushkar.

We only offer AC cars. Air-conditioning may not be absolutely necessary October through February, but it is always nice to be able to roll your windows up against dust or pollution.

It is customary to tip your driver 10% for his eighteen days of continual service, more if you feel it is deserved.

Communication prior to confirmed services is done via email. All guests with confirmed services have our complete contact instructions, including home, business and mobile numbers.
