Booking Process

What to expect: Please read carefully

Once you've contacted Iris at for the dates of the 14-day tour and extension;

1)  We will send you an email with a booking form for each traveler to complete. It includes a place to e-sign in acknowledgement that you have read and agree to our Terms and Conditions.

2)  In turn you will receive an invoice for your non-refundable deposit. Deposits are due UPON RECEIPT.

3)  Book your flights. Before you book air travel, think about your entire visit, including possible extensions. Economy fares range from $800 to $1400 in January, high season.

For assistance with booking flights, insurance, and visas we recommend a travel agent who knows our business well.

  • Our tour begins in Mumbai and ends in Delhi.

  • Flights usually arrive in the wee hours of the night. We will greet you at the airport and take you to the hotel.

  • Consider adding an extra night or two before the tour begins to adjust to the time difference (GMT +5:30 or EST +9:30). We can certainly help you book extra nights at our first hotel in Mumbai, the Taj Mahal Palace Tower.

4)  Once your flights are booked, we will send you a second online form to complete. We ask for information such as your flight details and emergency contacts. In turn we will provide you with important details regarding visas, packing and suggestions on some optional reading.

5)  120 days prior to departure we will send an invoice for the final balance, due within 30 days. 

Travel Insurance

We ALWAYS purchase travel insurance whenever we travel. We strongly recommend that you do, too. Your information packet will include a link to an insurance company we work with that provides a broad range of policies with competitive rates.


Before you travel to India, you will need an India visa. It’s better to wait until a few months before your trip to begin the process. You can apply for a tourist e-visa online ($100). A few months before your trip, we will provide you with detailed instructions. If you would like additional help, for a nominal fee, our tech guru Sarah Cronin will walk you through each step. Picasso Travel also offers a service to have your visa processed for an additional fee.​

Please keep in mind; it’s India, so itineraries are always being tweaked; things are always changing; nothing will ever be quite the way you expect. Which is exactly why you want to go to India.
