I am booked with my mum to go on the Mogul Highlights tour early January, and we are both very excited for this.
However, I have been keeping up to date with the Australian government's travel adviseries, and today I read a frightening update about India. I will quote here what I read on the website:
"We have received reports that terrorists may be planning attacks against the Hotel Maharani Palace and Hotel Maurya Palace in Jaipur. Attacks against other hotels in Jaipur cannot be ruled out. "
I understand that pretty much anywhere in the world is "unsafe" these days, but in terms of warnings like this, how seriously does Imaginative-Traveller take them? If there is a significant threat like this to a city or hotel that is part of one of the tours, is the itinery changed? This might be a stupid question, but does Imaginative-Traveller and its tour guides keep up to date with government information like this and act accordingly to ensure our safety?
