TransIndus was founded in 1989 and the aim at the outset was simple: to provide tours to India of the highest possible quality, at reasonable prices, for discerning travellers.
Itineraries were devised that threaded together both the must-see sights and off-track gems where clients could gain an authentic taste of rural as well as urban India, beyond the reach of more conventional tourist trails. The holidays had to be both comfortable and relaxing, and culturally stimulating. So as well as landmark five-stars, we started to hunt out heritage and boutique properties with great character, and journeys on quirkier modes of transport, from river boats to elephants. The formula proved a great success.
Two-and-a-half decades on, the business has grown considerably. TransIndus now ranks among the UK’s largest operator of tailor-made and group tours to Asia. We now operate in twenty different countries, and have bagged some prestigious awards, including Silver for ‘Best Tour Operator to South Asia’ at the British Travel Awards 2010, and placement among the Guardian & Observer’s ‘Top Three Specialist Tour Operators’ on two consecutive years.
Our commitment to quality, however, remains as firm as ever. Drawn from diverse backgrounds, TransIndus team members have all lived and worked both in the UK and India, or other Asian countries featured in our tours. Having this dual perspective gives us, we believe, a unique edge when it comes to matching your dreams with what is possible on the ground – and ensuring the tour we devise for you runs smoothly from start to finish.
It also explains why, year after year, our company enjoys satisfaction ratings of 99%. Well over half of the people that travel with us are repeat clients, or else have been referred by family, friends or colleagues.
At TransIndus, we pride ourselves on being able to offer expertly devised journeys at restrained prices, taking into account our clients’ individual needs. Personal service is at the heart of what we do. Whether you’re looking for an escorted group tour or bespoke, tailor-made holiday, you’ll find us passionate about our destinations and committed to quality – at every step of your journey.
