What our travellers say about the virtual tours!
Virtual Tour is a Hit!
The knowledge and warmth of Aayush, our guide, made the experience worth everything. He is calm, smart, patient and a lovely person to spend time with.
Traveling from the comfort of home!
Felt as good and refreshing as one would post an actual walk around the ghats! :) This concept of conducting tours online, in a gamified format, is the closest thing to traveling that one can experience while locked down at home due to Covid19.
