“We have checked every single route in each country to ensure a smooth journey, so participants can board the bus knowing they are in good hands,” said one of the company’s owners, Tushar Agarwal. He added that providing passengers with comfort is an absolute priority.
“We take care of all the documents, paperwork, visas and permits so participants can focus on the journey,” added Agarwal, who founded the company with his colleague Sanjay Mandan in 2012.
