With all these years of work supporting Travelers in these countries, we have experimented with different work formats. It is quite clear today that this, explained below in detail, is the format that best allows us to deliver what we consider and hear from Chörten Travelers (see feedback here) to be the most important for the experiences and enjoyment of your trip:
For more than 22 years, we have accompanied in person, online, set up and taken care of hundreds of small and large groups of Brazilian travelers and more recently foreigners in India, Nepal, Bhutan e Tibet. We have the management with the most experience with tourism in these destinations (listed above) in Brazil and one of the most experienced even in these countries, Europe and North America. Professional experience combined with our studies, experiences and own trips in these regions.
In this way we know well number very great de details which need to be considered e care in setting up, preparing, organizing and monitoring your travel program so that you can make the most of your time, investment and experiences before and during your days in these countries. We have a working format that will support you at every step in a quite quiet e organized.
We have already tried numerous work formats, partnerships, etc. Today it is quite clear that taking care of your trip with our knowledge and experience, from the beginning, through the preparations, all the logistics, organization, follow-up before and during your trip in a very close way in person or online, until your return to Brazil (see: Feedbacks Travelers Chörten), makes a very big difference in the result of the service delivered, in the significant and positive experiences in your trip. So your trip will be taken care of do start ao end by who do you know very bem those countries, services and local possibilities.
For the above points to be considered and appreciated, with their numerous very positive aspects that we do not give up, a more common commercial format does not work. The type of organization that best illustrates our work, with their due differences, are centers Buddhists e ashrams. As in these places, in which we have lived for many years and have very close contact, we seek to offer the best possible motivation (within our possibilities) in the work we offer, taking care of each Traveler and Trip. It is a work extremaments professional, in the sense that we seek to deliver the best possible service, with great responsibility, and so on. At the same time, it is important to understand that it would not be in the Travelers' interest to grow, it would not work with this quality, to have a large team of employees, with different motivations and knowledge (also quite noble but different) from those we cherish and from our experiences in these regions we want to offer you. Sometimes Chörten is a company with one person, which works very well. Sometimes we have more friends with whom we identify and relate to these countries in similar ways, as part of our team.
Our structure is 100% formalized in Brazil and at the same time very mobile so that we can be as close possible de you during a US trip, traveling and living in these countries most of the time, which we understand to be the way to we support a US trip com but quality. Always close and as updated as possible with the means of transport, rules, hotels, etc. in these countries. As explained above, we are intentionally small, which is a big challenge given the demand for our services, but we will not give up until we are able to grow in the way we believe.
we travel by different regions from India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet is surely one of the best ways we can support your experiences here. Always as updated as possible with procedures, their changes (very frequent), means of transport, airports, trains, hotels, guides, restaurants, visits and activities. On the one hand, it cuts down on office work a bit. On the other hand, this balance of travelling, taking care of the Travelers' preparations, all the details of the logistics, organizing the trip and accompanying the Traveler online and/or in person, is quite clear to us as the best way to support their experiences here. So we ask for a little patience with the timing of our office-type support. The reason being: we are always looking for the best for your trip.
In the same way and for the same reasons explained above, following trips also helps us to see as are os services Both of you hotels, drivers, means de Services, assists our transfers, guides and so on for a US Program. We will accompany (1) a group at the beginning of the season in October, (2) others at the end of the season in March and April. Only (3) for approx. one week in November we participated in an important seminar at a monastery in Kathmandu, when we sought to learn a little more about the knowledge of these regions, cultures, which we try to offer in our services, to contribute to your experience here. And then (4) in the low season, monsoon season in most of these regions, we will accompany a group between July and August in the higher regions of India and Nepal.
Unlike what happens 99,99% of the time, we do not receive travel programs requested from local partners and pass them on to you. Ready programs. most of the time we will work by weeks ou months No. SCHEDULE da US trip, in every detail that we know will contribute to your experience and, as a whole, will make a significant and positive difference. In the same way, we take care of many aspects of local services during your trip, quite different from the usual, because we know the difference they make in the quality of your experiences.
One of our pillars, working in these countries sometimes with a somehow seen more caothic or different structure then travellers are used to, is the organization of our work. Thus, we dedicate ourselves a lot so that each step of the journey, each procedure, is o but organized e Management possible. Only in this way is it possible to take care of every detail in a peaceful way for everyone involved, especially you Chörten Traveler who will soon be on vacation enjoying your days here. Even so, we have not arrived at the timing of large organizations, with numerous employees. We will continue to work in this direction. At the same time, we know that other priorities that we take care of on your trip will contribute much more to your experience here. Return to the image of Buddhist centers and ashrams, with other timings (respecting a little better the possibilities and specificities of each moment), values (like the greatest possible care with the points that matter most) and priorities (end result of your experience in a perhaps broader way). We see ourselves that way a lot because we identify with these environments, qualities of human relationships and service to you.
In a way, our travel and contact with the culture of these countries begins before arriving in Delhi or Kathmandu, as explained above. We hope you enjoy it a lot. Very thank you by, de some forms, let's travel together e by consequents Learnings in these cultures.
