It describes services/amenities that are available under normal circumstances. However events, circumstances and factors beyond our control like traffic, bad weather, fairs, festivals, strikes, change of management/closure of hotels/restaurants, over booking of hotels/flights, cancellation/ re-routing/re-scheduling of flights, rail or roadways, closure of / restricted entry at a place of sightseeing can affect the availability of services and necessitate change of routes/ itineraries. It may even necessitate stay in hotels in alternate city/ies or away from the one mentioned on the website. While every effort is made to maintain our services and follow the itinerary mentioned on the website, in few unavoidable instances we reserve the right to alter, amend, change or modify the Tour Package, Itineraries, Tour Schedule, Travel Plan, Sightseeing etc. Where we come to know of the changes/events sufficiently in advance we will notify you during booking or prior to departure.

    SCOPE OF ACTIVITY
    The Company is a travel and holiday organizer.

We are also not responsible for delay or deficiency in services of all independent contractors/service providers that may be borne out of any act or actions of co-traveler, co-tour participant which may result in tour participant not availing some or all services on the tour as per brochure.

    HOTEL
    Hotels selected for each tour is set out on the website. As you will be outdoors most of the time sightseeing we select hotels which are comfortable whilst keeping cost down. Most hotel rooms have private bath or shower. We take extra care to select hotel locations in either the city centre or away from it depending on the tour journey. Hotels do not have air conditioner or fan due to favorable weather condition. As hotel rooms are smaller we recommend maximum 3 persons in a room for your own comfort.

    COACH/SEATING
    We use air conditioned / air cooled luxury coaches. We have found it fair to operate daily seat rotation on board our coach, so no seat numbers are allocated. Toilet stops are arranged for the journey at appropriate intervals. The coaches may be equipped with a washroom which is strictly for emergency use only, and is not a substitute for using the facilities at regular rest stops / frequent comfort stops. The emergency washroom facility must not be used while the coach is in motion. No food and drink, including alcoholic beverages, may be consumed on the vehicle. If you are carrying any high value items on the coach, we advise you not to leave them behind when you leave the coach and we will not be responsible or liable in case of theft or robbery of the said items from the coach.
