tourHQ partners with Makemytrip and Goibibo to curate India-specific online travel experiences

tourHQ, the global marketplace connecting travellers with tour guides, has partnered with Makemytrip and Goibibo to bring online travel experiences to the Indian market. These experiences have been specially curated for the Indian clientele and will allow them to get the “Travel Wali Feeling” from the comfort of their home.

The online experiences are varied and seek to recreate the buzz that people get from their travels – detailed tours of city attractions, introduction to local culture, breath-taking views and interaction with locals. What’s unique is that these tours are live streamed via video call, where the hosts do the tour in real time and are extremely interactive in nature, tourHQ said.

For the Indian market, all international group online experiences have been priced at less than Rs 800 per screen. Each experience will allow a limited number of screens to ensure that participants can enjoy personalized interaction with the tour guide. These tours are available on the Makemytrip mobile app and also on for “private bookings,” in case a client would like to book them to be enjoyed privately with family and friends from around the world.

Vandana Om Kumar, the co-founder of tourHQ says, “A large number of bookings are from extended families who are spread across borders. These online tours give our travellers an excellent way for family and friends to connect with each other over a shared experience even under lockdown.”

These tours cover all continents and a range of different types of experiences – from wildlife safaris to historical tours to even cooking or music lessons.
