“Our travelers have told us time and again that they want authentic cultural experiences in exotic far-flung lands,” says president Bob Drumm, “so we’ve responded with new programs to India that will give our intimate groups a truer sense of the local life and culture.”
Travelers can save $800 per couple with pay-in-full savings on General Tours’ new trips to India and Nepal, which are limited to six to 16 guests, when they book by Dec. 31. One of the tours, the 9-day India In-Style, starts at $5,899 pp (including savings) and takes guests on a private tour to Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Udaipur with stays at Oberoi hotels. Highlights include an elephant safari in the forests of Rajasthan, a trip to the markets in Udaipur and an afternoon cruise on Lake Pichola, also in Udaipur.
Agents who are members of the complimentary rewards program, General Tours Rewards, can earn a $100 booking bonus when their clients pay in full at the time of booking.
