Why can't we do these trips on our own and (presumably) save money?

You can definitely do our tours on your own, provided you have large quantities of time, patience & money (to find suitable transport or buying air/rail tickets from local agents etc.) and willing to forego some safety measures.


Why should we choose your company? Is the company really reliable?
We suggest you to click on the link Why us before you send us a request. Our post-tour reports (along with comments, suggestions etc.) of various satisfied tourists can be read in Your own column, which will give you a brief idea of our services and reliability.


How can I book a tour to India? Is there a list of tours I can choose from?
First we recommend you to click Tours section of our website, which include various tours (which cater special interests of our guests- e.g. cultural/ adventure/ wildlife/ rejuvenation tours etc.); we have designed after an intensive research. We keep on refining these tours constantly according to your invaluable suggestions & requirements. You can book these tours on, as it is basis.

If however you feel that these tours need to be fine-tuned to coincide with your flight schedule, and if you need to add or reduce a night in any city, we request you to please send us your request and our travel consultants will get back to you shortly with necessary changes and the amended tour cost.


I do not want to stay in the suggested hotels, mentioned in the proposed tours. What should I do?
Absolutely no problem! We will be pleased to suggest you many options (for each city) with all the details & revised cost, enabling you to choose the one which best suits your requirements.

However, in our proposed tours we have tried our best to include variety of hotels to offer you different tastes. For example, we have included in our tours Palaces of Maharajas & Old Havelis (Mansions), where a guest finds the luxuries only a Maharaja (King) could boast of. According to the demand of the itinerary Jungle Resorts, Dak Bungalows, Guest Houses in natural surroundings, Tenting accommodations etc. have also been included to give you the real taste of that particular place. Needless to mention about modern hotels, which are certainly a part of these tours. The selection of these hotels is solely based on facilities and comfort, quality of service and the character of the property.


I do not like any of the tours listed on the site. Can Eternal Glories tailor-make a tour for me?
Yes, of course!
Kindly advise us your requirements (e.g. duration of the tour, number of people traveling together, approximate dates, the city of your arrival and departure along with the places of your interest, Travel Budget etc.) thru My Itinerary section of our website. Further we request you to please inform us, if you have any special interest. These details are very important tools for tailor-making an itinerary.

Our team of experts takes every minute into account, while designing customized packages. During designing process several feasible options are also suggested to our guests to make the tour more enjoyable. We keep on refining the itinerary till you get fully satisfied and make the final arrangements of your tour only after getting your approval for the same.


How can I book a tour for someone else? Can I also gift a holiday to my near & dear ones?
It is the same procedure as you book holiday for yourself. The only difference is that you have to simply type the name of the person, for whom you are making reservation, in your/passenger's name column of our Reservations section. Your own profile information (e.g. name, address, phone number, etc.) will be used for all the communications with you related to the booked tour. However, you may type over the appropriate fields and replace them with the actual traveler's information. (In this case all the related communication will be made with the actual traveler).

In the same manner you can gift a holiday to you near & dear ones. For this purpose we request you to write your true feelings towards the person, whom you are going to gift a holiday, in special message column of Gift a holiday section. After, all the arrangements of the tour are finalized, we will send you a gift voucher along with your special message for the person close to your heart, at your address. We promise you to keep a strict secrecy till you gift it to your dear one.

We will provide the services to your dear one against the above mentioned Gift voucher.


I want to travel with a group. Do you organize group tours?
Yes, some of our regular tour itineraries (please see our Tours section) are very popular, for which we organize group tours as well. These group tours depart on particular dates of every month. As we do not believe in big groups, the maximum strength of the group is limited to 10 passengers only, which in turn gives you a an golden opportunity to know other members of the group in a better manner.

As tour proceeds, every member of the group feels that they are an integral part of a lovely family. In other words we can say that every member of the group comes to India as an individual, but goes back with a family.

One can book a group tour from our Reservations section, specifying the tour name with departure date along with rest of the general entries (e.g. Name, Address etc.).


What are my rooming options if I travel alone?
Normally tour prices are based on double or twin occupancy. If you are traveling alone and opt for a group tour, we will try to find a suitable group member who could share the room with you. Sharing a room with a partner will definitely cut short the cost of the accommodation. However, we will do this only if you are interested for the same. If there is no group member with whom you can share a room, you will be given a room (single occupancy), for which you will have to pay a supplement.


I am not interested in a full package. All I want is hotels & transportation. Can I book just these?
Yes, you can book just a part of a particular tour as well. Please mail us your exact requirements at info@eternalglories.com and our travel consultants will send you a breakup of what you have asked for along with the cost.


Can I book only the accommodation since I am coming on business?
If you are only looking at accommodation options and not a full-fledged tour or a holiday, simply mail us at info@eternalglories.com. We will be more than happy to revert to you at once with relevant details.


If I book a holiday package that specifies meals, how many do I get?
Good question!
Please check the meal plan, your package includes. There are four types of meal plans as mentioned below -
EP (European Plan): No meals are included in tour package (Room only basis)
CP (Continental Plan): Breakfast + Room basis.
MAP (Modified American Plan): Breakfast + One meal (either lunch or dinner) + Room basis.

Can you book International Air tickets for me?
We suggest that you should book your international air tickets directly from the airlines office or thru some travel agent in your country.

We can also book your international air tickets from India as well, however the same would cost much more than the cost of the tickets, if booked in your country.

Except your international air tickets from your country to India & back, we will be highly pleased to offer you all kinds of travel arrangements like domestic flights, train tickets, hotels, transfers & tours and all other travel related services in India, Nepal & Bhutan.

Discounted Air tickets: To book Youth/Child or Infant fare air-tickets.
