Custom Travel Programs
Custom packages allow travelers to personalize the details of their trip to fit within a style or budget. Sodha Travel serves a diversified clientele and our destination specialists enjoy sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for South Asia. Unlike many other agencies, we do not require a deposit or fee for creating a customized package proposal. There is no pressure and no obligation.
Prior to departure, you will receive our comprehensive guide that highlights frequently asked questions about your trip, including weather, social etiquette, gratuities, and currency. Additionally, if you are traveling with a group of 6 or more, we provide a complimentary conference call with a destination expert to discuss the details and answer questions about your specific group itinerary.
