Along with all major sightseeing, a Darjeeling package tour includes accommodation, meals, transportations, and arrangement for many adventurous activities. To buy a suitable tour package, be it the Darjeeling package tour or a holiday package for Kashmir, dealing with a reliable source is crucial.
