Have questions? Sweet! We’ve got answers.
In India, Tour Guide is also referred as Cultural Ambassador of the nation. If any traveller wishes to experience the city in true sense then he tries to understand everything he could possible know, its historical importance, its culture & Values, lifestyle and contemporary status. And who could be the better person than cultural ambassadors himself i.e. “Tour Guide” who are professionally skilled and have required knowledge to provide the memorable tour experience in great story telling ways.
The question we will love to answer.
Touritor is based out of India and have very close relationship with each of the tour guide and will be in a better position than its counterparts to review and conduct the background checks efficiently so when we say you get the Verified Tour Guide, we mean it.
Our primary objective is to provide ‘only’ Certified Tour Guide and not to offer any Tour packages by any travel agents or just locals under the wraps. The intention is very clear that we would like you to experience the City and have a feel of it by experts. Selling Tour packages would take away the focus away from this. It feels good to say that there is no company/website currently exist who provides ‘only’ certified tour guides.
Our Cancellation Policy is customer friendly and your initial deposit would also be refunded if cancellations are done 15 days prior to Tour commences. You will surprise to know that no one currently offers this flexibility. Please read our Cancellation Policy here.
When you book with Touritor, indirectly you are also contributing towards Social work as Touritor promises to give some part of its profit earned from company to NGOs. Please contact us if you would like to know more about this.
