Lokendra always wanted to offer a unique experience to travelers by giving them insights into the day to day life in India, and after working in the service industry for six years, from five-star hotels to backpacker hostels, he couldn't see that happening. He met Mr. Anubhav Sapra, founder of Delhi Food Walks, who has gained a lot of respect in the culinary industry for pioneering the idea of food walks, and during a casual conversation, they spoke about the future possibilities. They have been working together for a couple of years now, curating unparalleled experiences for their guests.

After 12 years living in Germany, Leon has excellent communications skills in English and German. He also speaks French well. Leon is used to traveling all around Europe and now started to discover Asia. He wishes to meet somebody who will regard him as a good friend and show him the places that tourists won't be able to see. Understanding that point, he turned himself to that person in Vietnam for all other visitors. Leon usually says "When you contact me, then you are my client. When we meet then we are still strangers, but when we go on the tour then I am a friend of yours".
