We are not a conventional travel company

 We are not a conventional travel company, we do not work like most travel agents. 

It is our understanding that travel is a very personal experience, no 2 itineraries can or should be similar, what each person or group of individuals desire from their holidays is different. 

We design our itineraries in a colaborative process with the clients, there is a lot of back and forth, we look forward to understand the aspirations of our guest and put in our experience to deliver a tailor made itinerary. 

We follow a 100% transparent pricing policy, all our costs of vendors are as per actual and you can choose to pay directly to them or through us. Our charges for consultation or curation is added separately that cost is shared with you. Our company works only on those consultation charges. We do not have any hidden costs or commission from agents. 

What we have developed over a period of 2 decades is a network of service providers that share our ethos, these are vetted travel service providers who have a good team and the local knowledge to deliver complex itineraries. 

We have very limited vendors and destinations and we do not have the resources to have itineraries all over the world, we do limited destinations and work with a group of transport providers, guides, activity and event planners, hotels and historians. 

Our strength is our knowledge of the destination we can curate experiences around Architecture, Cuisine, Political History and the Enviornment for this we rely on area experts, acclaimed academicians, historians, journalists, architects, chefs and other experts in their area. 

So when we plan an experience for you, be rest assured that all logistics turn up on time and the visits and schedules are planned with a lot of thought to bring to you an enriching experience.

Anatomy of an Architectural Tour

We have been curating and planning architectural students tours over the past 2 decades and in this time the number of Architectural colleges have grown exponentially. It will be interesting to study the size of this market in terms of tours, competitors etc. We haven't come across this specific segment level analysis but we have many other learnings over time.  In this blog we try to articulate the anatomy of an Architectural tour, its different stakeholders and the impact these have in the overall experience.  Stakeholder 1 - The students Young and energetic and eager to explore, probably stepping out of the shadows of their parents and families for the first time. Their imagination of travel to a destination is derived from popular culture and Instagram. They don't know exactly what to expect but invariably these tours remain memorable for a long time.  Stakeholder 2 - The faculties and the management A destination is picked and finalised with an agenda that adds value to th

There is only 1 Goa in India

 Goa first came on the tourist map in the 60's as a hippie haven, probably the golden era of tourism in this tiny state. The tourists were more sensitive towards local culture and the environment. They consumed less and were happy living the life of the locals.  When the benefits of liberalisation started to trickle down and when a new and ambitious middle class started travelling, Goa witnessed mass tourism in the 90's and 2000's. There was a sudden surge of investments, construction and development, the era of unplanned tourism growth. Everyone wanted to be in Goa and everyone wanted to invest here.  The result of this era is what we experience in Goa of today, the relaxed vibe gave way to environmental degradation, overcrowding and cultural commodification, everything that this sunny seaside state was not known for.  Yet there is only 1 Goa in India and tourists still come here in hordes to experience the beaches, architecture, cuisine and the Goan vibe.  When we got the
