Tourism or travelling is a way through which people break out of their daily monotonous life to rejuvenate and enjoy themselves. But a trip is best enjoyed if it suits your tastes, preferences and style, when it is according to what you want instead of how the travel guide plans it for you. Such a tour where you decide the places to visit, timing of stay and departure etc. and the add-ons is called a Customized Tour. A customized tour allows you the freedom to ‘Customize’ your own trip with your travel agent based on what you like, how you like it and when you like it, that is, why it is called a ‘Customized Tour’.
The major benefit is that your tour is not guided by the group put together by your tour guide but by you. You have the luxury to create your own private group of 7-8 people and travel the way you want. Such tours are gaining popularity with tourists around the world as people seek all-round enjoyment from their trips. There are few elements to custom tours which can be broadly categorized into three, namely, Adventure, Spiritual and Cultural.
The three elements of Customized Tours are:-
Adventure is a type of tourism which has become immensely popular in recent times due to the activities in which it gets the tourists involved and the thrill it gives to them. Customizing your tour to add the element of adventure into it can enhance your satisfaction level as such tours require you to get out of your comfort zone and take some amount of risk (real and perceived) to the extent of putting your safety on the line. Adventure tourism involves wide range of activities such as bungee-jumping, paragliding, dangerous treks, rafting, rock climbing etc. some other obscure forms of it include jungle tourism, ghetto tourism and urban exploration. In India adventure tourism has great scope in its mountainous regions like the Himalayas, Western Ghats and in the beach fronts of Goa for water sports like speed boating, surfing etc.
Cultural tourism India refers to the movement of persons to cultural attractions away from their normal place of residence, with the intention to learn and experience to satisfy their cultural needs. When we travel into some foreign land one thing that we bring back from that place is its culture and it is also the first thing we notice about the place. Customizing your trip to visit the culturally important places of your destination will give you a lot of pleasure. In India you can explore the local museum to know about the history of the place or visit theater houses which give a good peek into its culture. Another way is to visit the historical sites like Delhi, Jaipur, Khajurao etc. and the rural areas which help you to look into the past and the daily life of the people of the country. You can also enjoy its traditional heritage of dance and music by planning to watch a dance or musical concert.
When you travel to a country like India you can expect to see thousands of religious places like temples, churches, mosques and gurudwaras. Spiritual tourism helps you to gain the inner peace you long so much; it can help you rejuvenate yourself and your faith. There is no better place to do it then India with its Vedas, Yoga and ashrams where you can gain the meaning of life and your purpose through the sages who sit in these very ashrams to spread the knowledge about spirituality. Customizing your tour to visit such religious places like Haridwar, Rishikesh, Vrindavan or the Golden temple you can not only relax your physical self but also your soul. What you ultimately gain is complete state of happiness of the body, mind and the soul.
