Our principal mode of communication is e-mail. All e-mails will be answered on the same day or within a few working hours. We operate 24x7 to serve clients across all geographies and our endeavor is to answer the mails as soon as possible. Our emails are short and crisp and have attachments only if required.

We completely appreciate the privacy of the clients and the trust that clients entrust upon us. So as a matter of our contact management policy, under no circumstances will the contact details be divulged to anyone

Emails would be sent as a form of communication for a particular tour only. No unnecessary emails will be sent to you in the form of newsletters. We though will keep you updated on the promotions/ offers/ seasons destinations only if you wish. If you have concerns regarding receiving such promotional emails then we will discontinue sending the same to you.

We have selected the hotels that have a certain charm and value for a certain segment of guests. We have selected the hotels on the basis of reviews from our partners and have personally visited most of them. We follow a highly sophisticated model to select the hotels (The parameters that are taken into consideration for selecting a hotel are service, cost, cleanliness, location, food and additional value-adds.)

We expressly exclude all hotel options that have suspect management practices, absurdly high tariffs, inappropriate location and not have a very conducive hotel atmosphere

The guides and tour managers have been handpicked by us and all of them are government approved. These guides have expert knowledge about local culture and history. The transport options have been selected and are best in the industry. Each of the vehicles meets the transport safety standards, and is in top condition. The chauffeurs speak good English and are government approved as well.

1) 9% on Hotel reservations,
