What's Included and Cost of Tour

The tour begins at Newark Liberty Airport on Sunday evening, November 4th, and concludes at Newark Liberty Airport on Thursday, November 15th, very early in the morning.   You will need to arrange for, and pay for, your own transportation to and from Newark, NJ to your home or origination point.

Other than traveling time in the air, the tour is made up of 9 nights of lodging, and 9 full days of enjoying the history, culture, foods, and shopping of the Golden Triangle of India.

The total PER PERSON cost, including round trip airfare from Newark, NJ to New Delhi, India, is $3,485.00 (double occ).

The “Single Supplement” additional price is $500.00, added to the tour price above. This is strictly for the cost of lodging one person in a room, rather than two.   If you request it, we can make every effort to match up two singles of the same gender to share a room.

The “Land” portion of this cost is finalized, and not expected to change.   United Airlines has provided us with a “guaranteed” cost for air travel, but United Airlines reserves the right to increase the total airfare cost for unexpected increases in fuel or tax increases.   If such an increase is charged by the airline to our tickets, you will be notified. An increase in an amount of up to $100 will be automatically charged to you.   If the airline increases ticket prices in excess of $100, you will be notified in advance and you may either cancel, or pay the increased fuel surcharge and tax amount.   We hope that if there is any increase, it would be modest.

This is an exceptional price for a 9 day / 9 night tour that includes all lodging, two meals per day, ground transportation for 9 days, admission fees to monuments, guided tours each day, AND non-stop air travel.

Here’s what is included in our tour:
