Our People

Years ago, holiday trips to other countries were not that easy to organize as it sounds. Most of the people were doing research via the internet into travelling to India. Perhaps people were not sure whether everything promised in the website itineraries will be delivered when they arrive in India. They were hesitant about receiving top quality, reliable service when they reach India for their richly deserved holiday. Though trips were affordable and within their reach, credibility among the Tour Operators remained a question mark in their minds.

Pandian, the Founder Chairman of Cholan Tours strongly felt the need to reassure and redefine the travel experience in India to all travelers. He has been in this travel industry since 1983 & has gained vast knowledge about India. He wanted to create his own travel company that provides solution to all the inconveniences faced by travelers rather complaining of lack of credibility among the Tour Operators in the industry. With all his determination & positive spirit, he started a small travel solutions company in South India in the name of South Tourism with 2 staff members. He shared his vision and knowledge along with his personal experience to his people who are now the asset of the company and have taken the company to the next level in offering travel care.

Today infrastructure at Cholan Tours & its wide network of offices backed by the best travel professionals, gives holiday a new meaning.
