Tea isn't just the most popular drink India, the milk infused, spice laden, sweet - Chai is the perfect example India’s incredible ability to absorb cultures & cuisines from around the world and make it quintessentially India.

The story of how India was introduced to Tea has all the elements of a Bollywood Action Blockbuster - wars, revolutions and a big serving of drug trade with a colonial empire on which the sun never sets at the centre of it all.

We Care

A part of the proceeds will go to support the local guide community in each of the destinations we operate in.

The virus has changed travel as we know it, at least for the visible future. Travel, as a sector accounts for 10% of global GDP. It was one of the first to get affected and probably amongst the last to bounce back. Our team being tech savvy, has the options of doing these virtual tours, but for a majority of tourism professionals in India this ain’t the case. So, to help in a small way, we wish to contribute a part of our proceeds to the local guide community.

How can you help? Spread the word on these virtual tours. Together we can make a difference!
