This was announced on August 15 and we hope that the first bus to London will be flagged off in May 2021. We have not started the registrations due to the coronavirus spread. The registrations will start after taking stock of the coronavirus situation in all the countries.” Adventures Overland co-founder Tushar Agarwal told IANS.
He further said that arrangements for passengers’ stay will be made in 4-star or 5-star hotels, and the passengers will be provided Indian food in all countries.
