Our Story

 

23 years converting travel imaginations of our tourists into reality!

Starting in 1996 as a small ticketing agency with a team of three to being one of the most trusted brands in the tourism industry, this journey of the last 23 years has been full of ups and downs and tremendous hard work by our team. This transformation would not have been possible without the relentless trust and consistent support of our customers.

The company was founded by our founder promoter, Ms. Meeta Shah, and in all these years we have become a preferred workplace for women chasing their aspirations. As a result, Ms. Meeta Shah has been awarded “Best Female Entrepreneur of Gujarat” at the Tourism Awards Gujarat. In addition to this we have been consistently recognized by many of our industry partners like Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, OTM, Hong Kong Tourism Board for work. The year 2019 was a landmark year when for 3 years in a row, we were recognized by Gujarat Tourism as the “Best Outbound Tour Operator of Gujarat”.

Initially, we were operated as a ticketing agency and slowing moved into curating group as well as individual holidays to South East Asia. A major milestone was achieved in 2009 when we launched our first group tour to America and Europe after which there has been no looking back.

Under the guidance of our Managing Director Mr. Sanjay Shah’s vision, we have become the pioneers of the Tourism Industry in India and are committed to the goal of becoming “The Largest Tour Operator in the World”.
