Stuart and Margaret Miller were – until recently – Tour Operators. Our company, Gateway to India & Asia, specialised in independent and tailor-made tours to India and other Asian countries. During our years as Travel Operators we gained a great deal of knowledge and respect regarding traveller’s needs and aspirations. We now use our expertise to provide a Travel Consultancy Service for independent travellers. We provide a personal, efficient, high standard of service that is also guaranteed by our associate companies in the various countries. We DO NOT purchase International Flights as, in a very competitive market, you, the client, can ‘shop around’ and have more choice. We provide a high quality and personal service to independent travellers both in this country and in the country of their choice. Based on our experience we suggest itineraries and provide
quotations for tours, hotels and sightseeing. When you are happy with the proposed arrangements and accept the quotation, an Acceptance Payment that is also a deposit, is payable to us. We design and make arrangements for your tour with the tour operator in your chosen country and your contract will be with that operator. The local tour operator will make the arrangements and your contract will be with that operator. For your financial protection, payment for the tour will be in two instalments directly to the operator who is bonded in that country. The first payment will be by bank transfer or credit card a minimum of eight weeks before departure. The second will be on arrival at your destination by credit card or cash. Using the same contacts we used as Operators we arrange tours directly with a Tour Operator in the country concerned. This enables the tour to be sold at a greatly reduced price. We quote you the best price negotiated with the operator for the tour. An Acceptance Payment/ Deposit (£200.00 per person) is the ONLY additional cost.
We provide full advice, based on personal experience, and Tour Itineraries with Quotations for the following countries: India, Pakistan, Nepal, Himalayas, Tibet, Sri Lanka, China, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam Philippines Malaysia and Indonesia. We are proud of our achievements in providing excellent service to all our clients. This high standard of service is reflected by our associate companies in each country. All clients will contract directly with the Tour Operator (who is Bonded) in the country concerned and will obtain their own International Flights. In this way we can reduce costs for you but also ensure that you obtain the holiday you desire using a reputable operator, with the highest standards, in a country of your choice.
