Trip does not include:
alcohol or wine (welcome to purchase yourself!)
many guests choose to stay in India longer to explore other parts and/or plan to visit the Taj Mahal together
we offer a Zoom meeting before trips for attendees to meet each other, this helps with travel anxiety!
we try our best to link solo attendees up at layover airports so you have a travel buddy arriving to Kolkata
