What We Do

Not everyday you get out across the world to wander about just anywhere; we get it, it is indeed a complex decision.
But for us, its been our everyday job. Let's just say we know what today's travellers really desire.
We do not consider a vacation is just going somewhere to visit some prevailing places, and doing some routine activities. We believe a trip should be memorable, should be fruitful, should be an experience by itself.

Our endeavour is to bestow you a real life experience while you travel. We attempt to connect you to the people when you go. Our venture is to reveal those hidden secrets of the place which you would find nowhere else.
And we present you India. The mysteriously addictive country. The enigma people trying to solve since centuries.

Our commitment to you also is driven by our social cause. The world is a pretty prodigious place. And we want to do our bit to keep it that way.
That's our core philosophy to adapt and practice Sustainable Tourism and Responsible Travel. We are here to affirm that sustainability and responsibility does not mean no fun; in fact fun can used to benefit the society, the world.

We welcome you to visit our Programs and Experiences to encounter a new India in an antithetic way.

Our writer and his friends recapture their youth and the joy of cycling, with a challenging trip taking in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro

Rocking my bike from side to side, I crested the final rise and the landscape opened out before me. A high-altitude meadow freckled with cows rolled down into a shallow bowl surrounded by savagely contorted, parallel slabs of limestone sticking straight up from the earth. Beyond was 2,523-metre Bobotov Kuk, the highest point in Montenegro’s wondrous Unesco-listed Durmitor national park. Behind me were yet more staggering views, across glacial lakes to rows of mountain peaks, deep river gorges and pine forests populated by wild cats, bears and wolves.

On the opposite coast to the island’s busy capital, Kingston, ‘Ochi’ is a tranquil but thriving haven with plenty to do, see and eat – and some characterful places to stay

Jessica Ogden has just finished applying a fresh lick of paint to the holiday cottage, one of two she rents out at Te Moana, close to Ocho Rios, occupying a scenic position on a cliff 30ft above the Caribbean Sea.

Unlike other luxurious and more opulent villas in the area, these cottages feel rustic, cosy and uniquely personal. That’s because they are. For Jessica, a fashion designer, they are an extension of her work, following in the footsteps of her mother, Annabella, who moved here in the 1960s. When her mother died two years ago, Jessica moved out soon afterwards to live at the family home. Although she has lived abroad for most of her adult life, her roots in Jamaica run deep. Annabella ran an art gallery here, Harmony Hall, which she opened in 1981, displaying the work of local artists – the gallery is still thriving today in a former 19th-century clergy house. Now Jessica has taken on the family business with her brother, looking after the two cottages at Te Moana, and adding a few touches of her own.

Brennivín was traditionally drunk to wash down rotting shark. Now this caraway-infused aquavit is firing up cocktails from Reykjavik to Brooklyn

Brennivín, Iceland’s signature drink, was never intended as a slow-sipping tipple. The caraway-spiced aquavit’s name translates literally as “burning wine”, and the colourless 37.5% ABV spirit looks more like vodka than a mellow aperitif. Traditionally, brennivín was shot quickly at the pagan midwinter festival Þorrablót, for the purpose of washing down hákarl – a rotting shark speciality that American Anthony Bourdain once said was the worst thing he’d ever put in his mouth.

The brand of brennivín most often seen in bars, Egill Skallagrímsson, was introduced in 1935, after Iceland ended 20 years of prohibition. To discourage consumption, the bottle featured a government-mandated matt-black label and a skull warning, earning it the nickname “black death”. That label essentially survives (though a map of Iceland has replaced the skull) and bottles are now popping up in bars outside Iceland.

The opening of a foodie theme park will further elevate Bologna’s reputation as Italy’s culinary capital but the city has plenty more to offer, including superb art, music and medieval architecture

Europe’s oldest university town (it was founded in 1088) has been a haven for intellectuals and creative types since luminaries such as Dante and Petrarch passed through in the 14th century. Cultural capitals can ossify with time, but the constant influx of young blood into Bologna has kept the city alive. In the evenings, cafes flood with Bolognesi, from high-society ladies to stylishly scruffy undergraduates arguing politics and sipping Aperol spritzes.

Piazza Verdi attracts musicians and dreadlocked punks, while bars under the arches of Piazza Santo Stefano are a lovely spot for a sundowner. At weekends the central Via Ugo Bassi and Via Rizzoli, along with perpendicular Via dell’Indipendenza, are pedestrianised and fill with shoppers and street performers. At nightfall, crowds from the student bars along Via Zamboni and the more upscale options on Via del Pratello spill into the streets.

Despite much change, the Nepalese capital’s staggering views and warm memories are as vivid as ever for the veteran mountaineer and leader of 19 Himalayan expeditions

My first sight of Kathmandu and the Himalayas was in 1960 as part of Lt Col Jimmy Roberts’s expedition – we made the first successful ascent of Annapurna II. At 7,937 metres, it’s a superb peak that’s just short of what mountaineers see as the magical height: 8,000 metres.

Arriving in Kathmandu was extraordinary. There was only one hotel, the Royal, an old palace run by a wonderful, eccentric Russian called Boris. There was also just one guesthouse, and practically no tourists.

This youthful and bohemian neighbourhood and foodie hotspot has become an open air gallery for giant, colourful murals

Cape Town’s Woodstock district has been transformed over recent years into one of the city’s most bohemian quarters, with restaurants, craft brew bars and the city’s favourite foodie address, the Saturday Neighbourgoods Market, in a former biscuit factory. But the real symbol of its renaissance is its spectacular street art, where houses are decorated with huge eye-catching murals, created by South African and international artists.
