Dr. Sachin Bansal, Chief Explorer, Founder, India City Walks, notes the growing interest among travellers
to experience a place first-hand by foot in an interview with Irene Susan Eapen.

India City Walks is a unique city centric travel initiative that aims to explore a destination on foot. It seeks to highlight a city’s distinct culture, history and heritage through first-hand travel experiences over an innate understanding of the traveller’s preferences.

Dr. Sachin Bansal, Chief Explorer & Founder of India City Walks, introduced its popular trails. “Our popular themes are India Food Trails, Old Delhi heritage walk, 1857 Mutiny Tour and Dastan-e-Delhi.

We also provide customized Old Delhi Rickshaw tours, exploring the historical monuments of Delhi like Feroz Shah Kotla, Old Fort, Red Fort and Qutb Complex. Our specialties also include tours of heritages sites like Nizamuddin, Hauz Khas and
Lodhi Garden and a host of cultural experiences which comprise a range of specialized itineraries for tourists to indulge in genuine cultural experiences and appreciate Indian festivities like Holi and Ramzan. We also have specialized offside travel
experiences and bespoke travels for corporates.”

“We have noticed that Indian travellers are better informed and travelled and have an exploration streak in them. People want to witness, explore and feel an emotive connect with the diversified beauty that is in India and its different cities, each having a different culture and history of its own.”

“Travellers ranging from a 20-year old travel newbie who wants to experience the cultural and culinary diversities of a city to the 60-year old traveller who wants to relive the experience of an era gone by form an innate part of our tour groups. We focus on experiential tourism and thematic heritage walks of heritage sites, historical monuments, city tours, food trails and also provide specialized tour itineraries for people wanting to experience the varied festivals and customs of India. Our themes are centered on heritage, spiritual trips, festivals, food, nightlife, bazaar, photography and rickshaw tours.”

City Tours

“Bespoke city-based tours have been a hit with the tourists. In 2016 and 2017, the specialized city tours have been a much sought-after tour category with people and we have seen tourist numbers growing substantially. There has been an overwhelming response to our tour packages and the young and the old alike have evinced interest in discovering city heritage and history. We expect the market to grow by leaps and bounds in 2018,” he concluded.

Keeping the pulse on the Indian travel industry for over a decade!
