TRAVEL COMPANION SERVICES – HELPING YOU NAVIGATE INDIA BETTER
HOW IT WORKS
The concept of INDIA TRAVEL BUDDY originated basis my experience of traveling India. My love for travel started way back in school and it got wings in degree college when I started organizing excursion tours and holiday trips. However, I was not able to continue it as a carrier. But, the passion to explore India never stopped.
I always loved work assignments involving travel, and this gave me the opportunity to visit various parts of this magnificent country called India or Bharat and also known as Hindustan. I learned local culture; pampered my taste buds with local food and visited various tourist locations. On my expedition, I happened to meet my wife at Hyderabad also known as Cyberabad.
The travel-related challenges I faced during my solo voyage or while traveling with my family, parents, and grandparents encouraged me to start INDIA TRAVEL BUDDY. Know more about your INDIA TRAVEL BUDDY in the ABOUT page.
