About South Tourism

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 to travel 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 South Tourism strongly felt the need to redefine the travel experience in India. He has been a part of this travel industry since 1983 & has a vast knowledge about all destinations in South India. With determination & positive spirit, he created 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. His experience, later, became the source of inspiration to many people who joined South Tourism to grow with it. A great workplace culture begins and ends with people. The team here believes they can do anything, they are hungry for constant improvement and constantly challenges themselves, relentlessly work to take the company to the next level of journey in offering travel care.
