TAILOR-MADE TRAVEL




Ever since we started this business in 1985, we have considered our customers as individuals, almost "INDIAviduals", by making tailor-made itineraries for rail travel in India using a rail pass. That has continued through the years till date. The whole idea is to cut & paste aspects of one itinerary and attach it to others. For example take an car & driver itinerary and then attach it to an independent rail/hotel itinerary and then add other aspects such as wildlife or adventure tourism. The possibilities are endless depending on how creative you are. We are happy to aid you in this regard. This can be done for any of the countries that we deal with like Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand & China with the exception of Bhutan which has set itineraries.
Examples in Nepal are as below:-
Kathmandu - Nagarkot - Dhulikel - Kathmandu - Pokhara.
Kathmandu - Trishuli river point for rafting - Pokhara - Kathmandu.
Examples for Sri Lanka are:- Colombo - Pinnewala - Kandy (by Road). Then start the rail to Polonnoruwa - Anuradhapura - Colomobo - Galle.
In Thailand you may wish to stay in the North and visit Chinag Mai and then go on a hill tribe trek.
In China you may prefer to just concentrate on a couple of cities (i.e Shanghai & Guilin). In which case you can fly into Shanghai and out of Hong Kong. Train from Shanghai - Guilin - Guangzhou. Then ferry to Hong Kong.

Note: The rates have not been updated since 2016 season, as there has been a violent change in the exchange rates ever since the Brexit Vote. We have left the rates as per 2015 - 16 season to give you something of an idea. For current rates, pl email your requests with dates & number of passengers. We can then get back to you on the same.


Note: All products in the website are being reviewed in view of the current pandemic on account of the coronavirus. At this point (i.e. when the website was being updated in late Dec 2020 / early Jan 2021), we regret that we are unable to recommend travel from the UK to the majority of the countries in Asia that we deal with. We are hoping that the situation will improve (not only for the anxiously waiting travellers and the tour operators in the UK but also for the thousands of people connected with the travel trade who are more than just associates for us.). When and how quickly travel is likely to resume is unknown to us with the earliest time likely to be in the autumn of 2021. Many of the products may need to be changed at the early stages for the safety of the travellers and the locals at these countries.
