TORONTO — Contiki will be hosting an open-age trade fam to India from Nov. 5-11 to showcase its 12-day ‘Eternal India’ product.
Condensed to six nights, the fam will start in Delhi and end in Jaipur before heading back to Delhi for the flight home. In Delhi, they’ll hop in rickshaws and visit the legendary Humayun’s Tomb. At the Taj Mahal, agents will receive an entry ticket so they can explore at their own pace, then head out to a DIY dinner, Agra style. Other highlights include a stay at Ranthambore National Park and a visit to the Pink City of Jaipur, where guests can opt to visit Amber Fort. They’ll also visit the Dhonk Craft Centre, a cooperative that employs those who would otherwise only find income from tiger poaching.
“We couldn’t be more excited to host agents in India à la Contiki this November,” says Sheralyn Berry, Vice President of Sales for Contiki Canada. “This India fam will be a great way to not only allow agents to experience this product for themselves, but it will also allow many of them to check this dream destination off their bucket lists!”
Agents much complete the mandatory training modules on its Contiki U E-learning Training courses in order to apply. International airfare is not included, however twin-share hotel accommodation, meals including daily breakfast and some dinners, sightseeing of all major cities and select ME Time activities will be part of the trip.
