You have never truly experienced a place unless you have done so in context of its people, culture, society and history. Realindia brings all these on a technology platform to make your travel a richer, deeply involved one. By allowing you to stay with ordinary folk and letting you experience their places through them, we give a holiday that is more than a few destinations but a collage of stories and experiences that will remain with you as strong memories.
In an impersonal world of buttons, machine talk and apps we have consciously tried to bring in the human touch and relationships into every facet of our business. It is said that ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they come together. We hope to prove that adage.
