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.

This route kicks off with the dazzling food and art of the Basque country before traversing Navarre and Aragon and heading south to Spain’s paella capital
More Spain road trips: Málaga-Jerez and Madrid-Santiago de Compostela

San Sebastián (or Donostia in Basque) is one of the most elegant coastal towns on the Iberian peninsula. It’s also a mecca for foodies, with more Michelin-starred restaurants per capita than anywhere in the world except Kyoto. For a town with fewer than 200,000 inhabitants, it has a lot to offer. Install yourself in Hotel Niza (doubles from €85 room only) and take a walk along the seafront to the Peine del Viento (Comb of the Wind), a sculpture by local artist Eduardo Chillida. There’s an open-air sculpture park dedicated to his work in the nearby town of Hernani.Eat standing up in any of the pintxo bars in the old town – Gandarias (fish main from €14, Kalea 31 de Agosto) is especially good – or take a five-minute trip on the tiny ferry across the mouth of the river from Pasaia to San Juan and dine at Txulotxo (five courses from €35) which does superb fish and seafood with a view out to sea. The San Sebastián area also boasts some of the best surf in Europe, and you can hire everything you need along the seafront or at the resort town of Zarautz about 10km west of the city.

This route starts on the Costa del Sol and heads up into Andalucía’s mountains and white villages before hitting the tapas and flamenco bars of Jerez
More Spain road trips: San Sebastián-Valencia and Madrid-Santiago de Compostela

In Málaga enjoy arty sophistication before heading into the wilds. Of the city’s many museums and galleries, the Carmen Thyssen, the Picasso Museum and the Contemporary Art Centre cover the classics and the surprising. The Muelle Uno complex on the harbourside is a nice, glitzy place to browse white clothes and drink wine by yachts before walking east along the seafront to Playa de la Malagueta for a swim. (For those who want more serious beach time, the gorgeous coves of Nerja are just an hour’s drive away.) The modern Hotel del Pintor (doubles from €69 room-only) is a fine example of the old town’s affordable accommodation options, while La Esquinita del Chupa y Tira (Calle Victoria, 31), a tabanco – corner shop-cum-bar – below the slopes of the Gibralfaro castle, is a refreshing alternative to touristy tapas bars.

Plains, mountains, a dramatic coastline and pit stops for great food and wine punctuate this two-week route between the national and Galician capitals
More Spain road trips: San Sebastián-Valencia and Málaga-Jerez

Madrid is a dynamic city, full of gastronomic pleasures, late nights, art and music. In recent years it has added important art galleries and avant-garde restaurants – without losing its soul. It has the same rustic tavernas and unfussy bars that writers such as Ernest Hemingway fell in love with in the 1920s.

The novelist’s 32-mile stroll around Manhattan, in a day, provided a vivid portrait of NYC – but it’s the Upper East Side’s low-key highlights that excite her most

I didn’t set out thinking New York would be a central character in The Futures, my debut novel, but it is such a romantic, overwhelming and daunting place that it came to the forefront. In a city this big, you have to find your own village, and for me it’s the Upper East Side – one of New York’s unsung neighbourhoods. Routine is important in carving out a home here: I go to the same coffee shop every morning. They know me by name, and to have someone recognise you in a city this sprawling is a great feeling.

Shiva Hotels aims to raise awareness of sexual and labour exploitation among both staff and guests to mark World Day Against Trafficking in Persons

A hotel group has become the first in the UK to launch an anti-slavery programme across its hotels. Aimed at raising awareness among both guests and staff of human trafficking, the project, by Shiva Hotels, will include a training programme for 400 employees and displaying statements in lobbies and on in-room TVs.

The full extent of modern slavery in the UK hospitality industry is not known but Professor Alex Paraskevas of the University of West London, who led a two-year study into the problem called Combat, said it is estimated that there are 115,000 human trafficking victims in the hospitality sector in Europe of whom 93,500 are sexually exploited and nearly 7,000 are labour exploitation victims working in hotels. In the UK the total number of people in slavery is estimated at 11,700 but there are no official figures for individual sectors.

The talented new chef at this restaurant with rooms offers exquisite meals with molecular and new Nordic elements, but the basics are spot on, too

Providing butter at a spreadable temperature is a skill all hoteliers should have mastered. The rarity with which this simple task is accomplished, however, means that when you do come across a warm, yielding pat of butter, you sit up and pay attention. Clearly, someone is sweating the small stuff. That would be Kath and Liam Berney, owners of Cottage in the Wood (CITW), a whitewashed 16th-century restaurant with rooms in England’s only mountain forest, Whinlatter, west of Keswick.
