    I would like to know what a tour package is as I am currently looking at Manali tour packages from Delhi.
    Getting some idea of the Manali tour package from Delhi will enable me to decide whether or not to get it.

    I need details like the duration of the package, sightseeing and accommodation.

    Overview

    Manali is a popular hill station in the state of Himachal Pradesh in the northern part of India. It has a number of temples, natural attractions and also adventure places that makes it a preferred getaway by both families and friends. Couples are especially enthusiastic to visit the hill station during winter season. But really, Manali can be visited in whatever season of the year, as it offers different landscapes for each season. A good option for those coming in from distant cities would be to take tour packages. There are plenty of tour companies offering direct tour packages, say from Delhi up to Manali. The transfer from Delhi to Manali, the sightseeing, the accommodation and transfers within Manali would all be handled by the tour company. This can make for a very comfortable and hassle-free tour, instead of doing all the planning by yourself.
