In it’s ten years of existence our company has grown at a rate of almost 100% every year. The first major challenge of establishing the brand and position in the market has been achieved. We are thankful and grateful to our more than five thousand traveler friends who not only used our services once but repeatedly and also referred us to friends and family. As per last year’s figures our repeat and referral travelers stand at a staggering 40%. This has been achieved because of our committed and disciplined team members who bring in a combined experience of over 100 years to the company.
1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
Our company was founded by Mr. Durjay Sengupta in August 2000, started at home. He wanted to help individual and independent travelers see India in an unobtrusive and leisurely way for the right price. The idea to start a travel company germinated out of Mr. Sengupta’s own travel experiences and vexations. He realized that everyone had the right to travel their way at their pace. Thus, circa 2000, the company was founded with a handful of young travel enthusiasts. We shared a common passion, TRAVEL. We also realized we loved a little pampering. Blame it on our imperial blood.

Mr. Durjay Sengupta. As a hotel professional who has worked on the initial days of "branding" Howard Johnson Hotels and Motels in India to the present entrepreneur designing and marketing exclusive tours to the INDIAN SUBCONTINENT for the demanding and extremely service conscious world travelers, I consider myself a merchant who knows how to market to the modern day consumer.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
Best of North India with Rajasthan: The Best of North India Tour of India is a delightful journey of magnificent Rajasthan, splendid heritage forts and palaces, pilgrimage places of North India and is also a fascinating visit to Taj Mahal. The tour starts with sightseeing of Delhi, peeps into the boat cruise and mesmerizing evening prayer ceremony at the River Ganges in Varanasi to The Exotic temples of Khajuraho, further to Gwalior and from there takes you into the gardens of Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri of Agra, Amber fort of Jaipur and ends at the city of beautiful lakes & palaces. This trail of India is also filled with excitements that range from visiting Palaces and culture to involvement in shopping at every destination.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
"As our family has just departed from the holidays, we wanted to take this opportunity to first thank you for the lovely complimentary meal that was arranged for us at the Estate hotel and the thoughtful gifts given to us, the beautiful scarf and the Genisha for good luck. The dinner at the Estate, we felt, was the best of our trip".
