    1. A single supplement is available on this trip. See under the Single Traveller section of your Trip Notes for more information. 2. An airport arrival transfer is included. Please provide your flight details at the time of booking. 3. Please note that due to ongoing construction works at Khujuraho airport, many airlines have reduced the number of flights into and out of this airport. As a result we have had to reroute some trips between Khujuraho and Varanasi to an overnight train rather than the flight. We will do all we can to secure seats on available flights and will let you know if we have to change your trip. Your itinerary will not change with the exception of this flight. All activities will continue to be included. 4. This trip is operated by our experienced sister company Peregrine Adventures.
