Travel and Fashion Photo Tour With Aman Chotani – Pushkar Camel Fair
The Kunzum Travel Café opened its doors to the world on June 12, 2010 – it has since become synonymous with the idea of a traveller community.
As Brand Kunzum, established earlier in 2007, completes a decade, we have introduced an idea that promises to be another game changer – we call it the Kunzum Travel Truck. Very simply, it is recreating the café on wheels. People would no longer just talk travel, but head out together too.
On journeys curated by experts. In vans that make travel fun and engaging – comfortable push back seats, unlimited bar, WiFi on board, funky interiors, LED screens, music systems and more. Trips have been scheduled every week taking you to places you may not have considered on your own. With service standards that will delight you.
In other words, the Kunzum Travel Truck would be the destination in itself. Where you will make new friends too. Hop aboard – book a journey at http://kunzum.com.
Want to book a truck for your family, friends, alumni and office colleagues?
We all like to head out with our private groups – why not do it in style in a Kunzum Travel Truck? We can suggest itineraries and you can express your preferences. Leave the rest to us – we will handle all research, curation, bookings and organisation of the trip.
