Enquiry

  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • What meals are included on my trip? Can i request Indian / vegetarian / special cuisine on tour?

    The exact number of meals included on the trip is clearly specified on the itinerary and is different for each trip. Our vacations strive to introduce you to local authentic flavors, so you can enjoy the destination in a deeper way. Therefore, included meals are usually local or continental. Please request vegetarian meals at the time of booking, and also with the local guide and WOW Buddy on tour; this can usually not a problem when requested in advance. When meals are not included, you may choose an restaurant of your choice in the city you are touring.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
