New options for affordable luxury travel in Rajasthan

Press Release   •   Sep 14, 2010 16:39 IST

Adding to its range of experiences in the Indian state of Rajasthan, boutique travel agency Wire announces the launch of its new affordable luxury tours. The first two tours in the range have been designed to still offer a unique and stylish journey with many 'extras' already included in the price. Itineraries cover a broad spectrum of life in Rajasthan - from vibrant and bustling cities, the Thar desert, royal palaces and forts, right through to the simplicity of life in outlying areas.

Wire draws on its extensive research in to hotels, resorts and places of interest in Rajasthan, combining their knowledge to develop tours that still offer excellent value for money, without compromising on quality. The new tours named VIVID and SODA include many of the well-known sights in Rajasthan but also take travellers away from just major cities, to more remote locations and some equally impressive encounters.

The development of the tours was overseen by Wire's co-founders Gerd Dupré and Khaled Hussain - two Europeans with a passion for luxury travel and who are now based in Rajasthan. They explain their approach: "Defining affordable luxury for us simply comes down to being able to maintain a high level of quality and the overall experience we offer - but being able to trim the price by making some alternative choices. We looked for the right combination of personally tested hotels and resorts, inspiring sights and a relaxed pace to deliver a fantastic experience without significant sacrifices."

Both new tours are private guided experiences, meaning that each couple have their own guide, car and driver throughout their stay. In addition the package price includes activities, monument entrance fees and almost all meals, as well as accommodation, transfers and international flights from the UK and other European cities.

Prices for the tours start at £2445 for 10 days and have no fixed departure date thus making them extremely flexible. More information and detailed itineraries can be found on the website www.mywireindia.co.uk

Wire was set up by two Europeans based in Rajasthan, providing expert advice and tailor-made holidays and luxury tours around India;s incredible state. Providing services in both native-English and native-Dutch, the company focuses on working with a handpicked selection of luxury hotels, resorts and other hospitality brands to create truly unique and memorable experiences for couples, solo travellers or small groups of less than six people.
