We are a balanced team with innovative approach, with about 35 years of experience in the Indian tourism & hospitality industry

We are essentially an Inbound Tour Operator for India (along with some neighbouring countries like Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Srilanka, etc) with a vision and a great degree of responsibility. We believe in making you friends of India forever!

As a Tour Operator, our responsibilities include customizing & optimizing entire tour package for groups and individuals with its elements like hotel bookings, transportation, quality language speaking guides, entrances, air & train tickets, etc. This is done by every tour operator anyway, however where we excel over others is the way we offer value for the package with a lot of careful thinking and meticulous studies that go behind for you to have a memorable experience! These planning could also mean taking into consideration ongoing fairs and festivals; full moon or no moon; personal preferences; birthday; any nostalgic connection; your expectations matching with budget and a lot more…!

Our forte, apart from normal cultural tours, is to deal in different special interest tours – be it wildlife; tea garden tours; ayurveda & rejuvenation; heritage & archaeological tours; bird-watching, trekking and nature tours; farmer’s tour or tribal ones! India has them all!

The way Incentives and conferences took place earlier, are going to change now drastically. We have evolved with the current times of Corona and have some new & exciting programmes & exclusive tours.  These still have interaction with locals giving you real taste of India, yet keeping you safe & protected. Weddings in India and at neighbouring exotic destinations are the talk of time! The quality and price deal that you get for the opulent and magnificent theme evenings, array of sumptuous dishes thrown in, with the best accommodation, meeting & wedding facilities, it is hard to resist the offer! But of course we need to wait for safer times to come!

Of course you are a changed person once you have been to India, whether it is on business meeting or holidays or whether you are posted at one of the embassies – definitely enriched with `something’ that had not been a part of your life as yet!

Somehow India has not enjoyed the balanced image perception as at times, positive facets have got less exposure. However, those who have been here, have all been pleasantly surprised as to how misplaced the impressions were! India’s diversity is unique in the world. Please check out  our Incredible India section to know lots of unique facts about the country!

We are also a member of Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO) and recognised by the Department Of Tourism (Government of Goa). Such recognition ensures a strict check on the quality of services provided by its members.
