Additional Notes 

Group is travelling in October/November during Pushkar Fair and Deepavali festival is the peak period for tourism in India.  

India is a country of over 1000 million people and there is an emerging traffic of domestic travellers. Therefore late and last minute bookings may place us in long waiting lists – especially on domestic flights/ trains – and the reservation may not confirm at all. So we request for reservations well in advance to enable us to confirm the reservations.

If there are delays and cancellations on domestic flights / trains in India we will do all possible to look for the best available alternative / solution but will not accept any responsibility

If you require any clarification or further information, please call/email Basker
