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 isn’t the case. So, to help in a small way, we wish to contribute a part of our proceeds to the local guide community.
