Jitendra N. Shah, from the traditional Gujrati Trading Community, Shri Prabhulal
R. Joshi, from the Brahmin community of Menar, in Rajasthan and Shree Manoj N Shah.
They all had strong business acumen, and the later had extensive experience, in
the tourism and catering industry. Together they floated Nextrip Tours & Travels,
in Vile Parle, Mumbai, and started operating from a rented office of just 75 sq.
Ft. They started by operating fixed departure tours to the Bangalore-Mysore-Ooty
sector, with a unique feature of an accompanying vegetarian, catering team.

their foot print, to cover all the major tourist circuits in India. To their credit

group tours, exclusively for Honeymooners. These special Honeymoon packages, meticulously
planned and perfectly executed, were a unique proposition. of aromatic atmosphere,
