We started our interactive virtual experiences in June last year, in the middle of the lockdown with the objective to keep the keep the spirit of travel alive. To quench our client’s thirst for wanderlust. To discover our world virtually and maybe add a destination or two to our clients bucket list when travel resumes. We conducted close to 50 virtual experiences in six months which was only possible thanks to the encouraging support and positive feedback from our clients. Click here to read what our clients have to say.

It has been quite a journey for us, more so in these tough times. We have learned so much, met some wonderful new people and most importantly connected with our clients who have actively participated in our virtual experiences and encouraged us along this journey of discovery. Click here to see the list of virtual experiences that we conducted from June to December 2020.

The vaccination programme in India has started in January 2021 so there is light at the end of the tunnel but we are still a few months away from ticking off items in our travel bucket list. To continue to keep our wanderlust alive, we bring you a fresh set of virtual experiences in 2021. Remember our experiences are privately guided by experts, conducted LIVE, they are informative & interactive and they’re from across the world, curated by our team of experts just for you.
