Why It's a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from New York to Delhi starts from $1,256 with taxes for travel in late August (United). Add to that $202 per person, including tax, for two nights at Hilton New Delhi/Janakpuri, $154 per person for one night at Hotel Clarks Shiraz and $231 for two nights at Ramada Jaipur, and you’d be paying $1,843 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $330 less than that, this package covers the flight, six nights’ hotel accommodations, plus seven meals, all ground transportation, including round-trip airport transfers and cross-country sightseeing, plus the services of an English-speaking guide, all taxes and fees, and offers the added convenience of all-in-one booking.

More An optional tour package includes three tours—a half-day tour of Agra, a half-day tour of It-mad-ud-Daulah and Sikandra and a half-day tour to the Hawa Mhal in Jaipur, from $59 per person. Adventurous travelers can opt for a four-night extension of their trip to Nepal, from $699 per person.
