A Passage To India...Discounted

This may be the first time I've mentioned the company Friendly Planet on this blog. Which is an oversight I'm happy to correct, because the staff here often comes up with some of the best deals in travel.

Fatehpur Sikri's magnificent architecture..and goats
Like their current promotional sale to India, which is offering tours of that country, including airfare, starting at just $1499. That price includes lift from New York City (add $150 from Chicago), six nights' hotel, and tours of Delhi, Agra (home to the Taj Mahal) and Fatepuhr Sikri (a personal favorite of mine, the town was the capital of India for a little more than a dozen years in the 1600's and has some magnificent  buildings as a result). Taxes and fees are included in this price so there are no surprises.

Could one do this itinerary more cheaply if traveling independently? No doubt.

But for a tour, and with the quality of the hotels used by Friendly Planet, this is quite a good value.

For full details, click on the link above. But do it fast, bookings at this price until Jan 24 only (for travel on departures in May and September).
