Our Guiding Principles

We seek to instill a tangible pride of our glorious past and build a responsible and culturally sensitive community through heritage travel.

Fixed Departures

Choice of place:

The choice of our location is generally offbeat but as fascinating as the more well known regions. This ensures a wider playing field for our tours. The lack of crowds ensures a leisurely viewing and spontaneous exchange of snippets from the participants opening up newer facets and greater appreciation of the location.

Cuisine:

We strive to present the authentic regional flavour made from the locally sourced ingredients to relish the time travel. Our research and extensive integration with the “ sons of the soil ” ensures that the not so popular and many a times the forgotten recipes are revived and the participants get and opportunity to savour and enjoy the same.

Activity:

We choose activities such as cookery classes, story reading, pottery making, sketching, singing etc. which help the group to gel as one happy family. Not only do these activities involve every participant but they also collectively result in effective everlasting networking and more importantly, friendship.

Transport and accommodation:

We believe that the experience of the locations visited should be devoid of physical strain and tediousness. Therefore we ensure the best possible air conditioned transport by all modes. Refreshments and snacks are always available on board.

The best available hotel, preferably heritage property is carefully chosen in order to heighten the joy of the tour. The itinerary is always crafted with sensitivity to provide ample free time to sit back and ruminate at the marvels as well as enjoy the property.

Avaiablity:

Our expert in the field along with the travel co-odrinator are always in the vicinity to ensure that both information about the sites as well as any and every concern regarding the arrangements are immediately addressed.

Heritage

Along the Sacred Ganges

From her birth in the Himalayas until she gently immerses herself in the Bay of Bengal, Ganga bonds unconsciously
with every inhabitant of India. This river creates a lifeline, nourishes it by enriching the banks and also accepts the
mortal remains thus completing the perennial cycle of life.


Dotting this sacred river we find some of the finest habitats of our great culture. These monuments present a
kaleidoscope of ancient history, the rise and fall of kingdoms and the continuing tradition of art forms and
handicrafts which unfailingly motivates the resident and captivates the visitor.

Heritage

Thanjavur

Magical to many and a mystery to some, never has any other town inspired so much of art across centuries. Thanjavur, beyond all
its treasures, is renowned for the UNESCO World Heritage monument created by Raja Raja Chola. Considered to be one of the best
specimens of South Indian temple architecture, the Brihadeeshwara temple weaves stories of not only a glorious past but also the
economics behind one of our longest empires. Reflecting the remarkable and stupendous feat of consolidating various resources
from different regions into a singular piece of wonder, this structure still stands tall after several centuries. The influence of various
dynasties from the 9 th to 20 th century can be seen in the art, architecture, music, dance and cuisine of Thanjavur.


There is more to Thanjavur than just the “Periya Koil”(Big Temple). One of India’s best kept secrets is the Sarasvati Mahal Library
which houses books since the 17 th century on diverse topics such as cuisine to water divining, astrology and architecture. Thanjavur
has had a long tradition of its rulers from Karnataka and Maharashtra and England coming in, blending in and creating a culture
that is eclectic.
