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.
