The brochure is accompanied by a range of great Travelmarvel Earlybird Offers such as free international return flights, 2-for-1 airfares, cash savings and air credits on selected tours.
Commenting on the 2018 program, Travelmarvel Executive General Manager David Cox said the Australian owned tour operator continued to offer an unrivalled combination of premium experiences in India.
“Travelmarvel’s India program allows guests to get the most out of this amazing country. Our itineraries build in the free time and flexibility that Travelmarvel guests crave, but our tour directors and local guides also ensure guests are taken care of from the moment they arrive, giving them the confidence to explore.”
“We travel in comfort, using four and five star accommodation for the entire program, and our special Insider Experiences really immerse our guests in the culture, history and natural beauty of each destination.”
Travelmarvel’s most popular India itinerary is the 16 day Colours of India, which includes Delhi, Agra (the city of the Taj Mahal), Jaipur and a seven night lower Ganges cruise from Kolkata to Farakka on the boutique RV Rajmahal.
