HOW DID WE START?
It all started in November 2013, when 4 young professionals in Jaipur, India – Honey, Vinny, Vics and Charlie who happened to be old friends were hanging out at a pub after a while. All of them are very fond of touring and travelling. They were just trying to catch up, sharing their recent traveling experiences, criticizing the services they received while on the tours and pondering on the possibilities of how their traveling experiences could had been better. Vinny, who was already a setup entrepreneur having co-founded and successfully heading a web & mobile apps development and online marketing firm – Dark Bear Web Solutions; he came up with an idea of founding a new tourism company which will start from where all other tourism companies had left. Vics had a huge touring experience, not only in India, but around the world too. Honey was very good at liaisons and dealing with the locals. Charlie was a dreamer and a writer. They all wanted to give the tourists around the world what they themselves wanted – a tour experience with one of the most humble, admired and world renowned Indian tradition of “Atithi Devo Bhava” (means “Guest is God”) combined with quick, intense and repetitive shots of pleasure. From here came the name “Bout India”. The word “bout” literally means “a short period of intense activity of a specified kind”, and that’s what they intended to give to their customers. In their case, the specific kind of activity would be “just fun”. So they teamed up together to found this new tourism company “BOUT INDIA”.
Indian hospitality is world renowned and considered one of the best around the world. Our mission is to let the world experience the BEST of the Indian hospitality. We plan to take the Indian hospitality to an even higher level altogether, so that Bout India becomes an identity and the face of India and its proud hostmanship.
“Atithi Devo Bhava” meaning “Guest is God”. It’s ages old tradition of India, which became our core philosophy. Our second philosophy is – If you have intense fun during a short period of time, that period stretches longer than it actually is and leaves indelible marks in your memory to stay for the lifetime.
Almost every tourist wishes a tour of India to be a golden opportunity to learn not only about its culture and history but also to experience the delights of the Indian food and delicacies, comfortable transportation, relaxing stay and other amenities to ensure a completely stress-free holiday. Our personalized tours with Bout India are designed to make those wishes come true! We go that extra mile for you so you would end up praising Indian hospitality and hostmanship for your lifetime. Although we specialize in arranging individual tailor-made tours, we continue to offer a wide range of escorted group tours designed for customers who prefer to travel with a group of like-minded people.
There is something else in India to come for. It’s a wild and crazy place – “crazy” not in lunatic sense but “crazy” as in uniquely and pleasantly different. Feeling lost in the crowd is something which you experience in the best way only in India. Because, it’s not just you; everyone else is lost in that crowd. There’s lot more to India than what just appears. We show world the true essence and the best of Indian Culture and Terrains.
