Vishal Jaiman represents The Indian Trip, the company which focuses on providing experiential travel to foreign tourists in India, with uncompromised service to make the travel much more memorable. 

Most of the foreign tourists coming in India would limit their travel based on the information available online and end up only exploring the famous monuments and other historical sites, since they may not be aware of other places to explore in India.

TheIndianTrip ensures that the travelers have a unique experience, they just don’t see the things around but also experience them. We can provide a guided tour wherein you just don’t listen to historical information and stories, but also experience the monuments come alive through role-plays enacted by local theatre artists. You can meet and interact with families of ex-poachers who have transformed themselves and have now established a social enterprise to create handicrafts. You can stay with a tribal family of Rajasthan experience their everyday life amidst nature and wildlife.

The proper guidance in India can help you explore this beautiful and diversified country as a traveler, and not just like a tourist.
