Details

Choose between the comfort of a SUV OR the thrill of a Motorbike ride.

Bike & its commuting:
1. We can help you in arranging a reliable logistics services company (GATI KWE) to pick up your motorbike from anywhere in India and delivering it to your doorstep safely.

2. If you want a motorbike on rent from Guwahati then please inform us separately, we will help you in arranging a good quality reliable motorbike from one of our trusted vendors.

3. If you have your own motorbike then it’s recommended to courier it to Guwahati (address will be provided) using the logistics services company (GATI KWE), they take about 12 - 15 days to ship to Bagdogra from almost anywhere in India.

You can either ride single or have your partner as pillion. She also has a choice to hop on/ off between your motorbike and the SUV for added comfort.

We mostly run mixed tours – SUV’s and motorbikers go together.
