With over 25 years of experience in the Travel and Tourism industry with my focus area being culture and nature, I and my experience will surely be a worthwhile addition to your tour. I joined the travel industry in late 1980s, even before tourism was thought to be an industry itself in Kerala without the reach and scope it enjoys now. My exposure helped my travel extensively across various states of South India giving me, over a period of time, the excellent knowledge about various tourist locations and the roads and paths that lead to them.
My academic and empirical knowledge in the field of travel and tourism helped me get employed as a Lecturer for Travel and Tourism in the Govt. Vocational Higher Secondary School, Kumarakom. After a few years, I quit the job to work with the tour division of Kerala Tourism Development Corporation, Kochi. After this professional stint, I decided to follow my true calling and chose to embrace my passion to work as a freelance tour guide helping various tour groups and teams that come to explore the natural beauty of South India from across the world.
On the personal front, apart from helping the tour groups, I believe, travelling with different groups gives me a trove of unique experiences to understand each place differently. I am of the opinion that any tour destination has more to it than just meets the eye. As it gives me more personal satisfaction to be with the nature, I consider this profession to be more rewarding than any other job I have ever carried out in the past.
I am also often, due to his experience and academic exposure, assigned with several in-bound tourist groups from American and European countries. At times, I also support various out-bound travel packages to familiar tourist destinations in the European continent.
With a valid license from the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India for the states of South India, there is no doubt that I can definitely add a great sense of excitement, thrill and professional experience to the group and the tour.
