Important Glossary and On-Ground Operational Notes

Orientation Tour:These are short non-stop tours which give you a glimpse with an intent to familiarize the city, with photo stops. There are no guides in orientation tours, hence please do not expect the same
Guided Tour:Explanatory, guided tours are with escorted guides and are in depth tour of the city with longer duration of time
Group Operations: As travelling in a group is all about seeking value for money, where all passengers travel together in a coach and as a group. Below should be noted as mandatory for on-ground operations:

  • Schedule adherence is of at most importance when there are different people traveling along yourselves. Time for assembly and tours will be discussed by your tour escort
  • Hotels envisaged for the group are good 3 star+ hotels located near to the city airport area. Why we choose an airport hotel is because of the price points that we have to keep in mind to offer maximum value to our clients, as airport hotels are usually newer, offer good facilities depending upon city to city and a comfortable stay. You would notice a similar trend with all leading tour operators worldwide
  • Group tours are fast paced tours, keeping in mind the limited time that needs to be utilized to the maximum. Expecting a leisurely pace would not be an ideal scenario
  • All restaurants envisaged offer good Indian meals, which is based on a set menu. We can cater to special dietary requirements such as Jain food etc., upon prior notice. The set menu usually consists of 2 vegetarian dishes, 1 non-vegetarian dish (curry item, lamb or chicken, placed separately), 1 dal, rice, 1 dessert, nans, papad, onions, raita (or yoghurt), salads, chilies, pickles and drinking water. There may be deviation to this set menu, if deemed necessary, for operational purpose
  • Please note that a tour escort is not a guide. The person has been dedicated to supervise smooth functioning of the tour and to make sure you are given what has been promised. Expecting a tour escort to guide you through monuments and attractions should not be expected, however he/ she may do so as per his/ her knowledge
