Remarkable East unveiled

There’s a new player in small group touring, with Melbourne-based India and Sri Lanka wholesaler India Unbound releasing a new brand called Remarkable East.

Venturing to India and Sri Lanka in groups of eight to 12, Remarkable East has five tours on offer in 2017.

Designed by the founder of India Unbound, Lincoln Harris, the itineraries feature more than just the highlights of the destinations and are based on decades of travelling, living and working in India and Sri Lanka.

“We believe small group tours should be just that — genuinely small — as it offers travellers experiences they simply can’t have in a large group,” Harris said.

“A small group tour allows us to engage with unique people and places — an intimate heritage hotel, meeting people renowned in their field or an interesting character whom we’ve known for many years.”

Itineraries range from 12-14 days in length and highlights include a stay at the Taj Mahal Palace, dining with a descendant of Rajasthan royalty and a scenic flight over central and southern Sri Lanka. The Remarkable East tours are North India Revealed, Sri Lanka in Style, Brahmaputra River Cruise, Fabulous India and Heritage Golf India.
