Our endeavour is to bring India’s built legacy and resources closer to its due recognition amongst the youth and the global citizens, beyond the purview of the past.

The Festival is stronghold with our flagship brands such as ICW®, IHW™, IWL®, ICD® under CEPL® that are an extension to the host communities. The INDIA CITY WALKS FESTIVAL is a cultural festival where we focus on heritage, monuments, history, tradition and city sightseeing destinations for walks, storytelling sessions, events, and experiences both on-ground and virtually. The Festival focuses on engaging the locals/residents of the region.
The INDIA CITY WALKS FESTIVAL (ICWF) is curated and structured in a way that it supports domestic tourism revival in the mid/post COVID-19 scenario. Our objective is to create a pool of locals and ensuring opportunities/employment for citizen engagements around heritage & culture.
This Festival has been structured to make every effort to protect our cultural heritage, share stories and enjoy local neighborhoods. Our focus is on encouraging both young and old to experience the heritage of India. Our nation has a new story to share at each step and through INDIA CITY WALKS FESTIVAL™ (ICWF™) we support ‘Vocal for Local’ and ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’ mission of our Hon’ble Prime Minister.
We want heritage to be more widely recognised as a vital contributor to the economy, social cohesion, better places and individual wellbeing.

Our years of working in the field of tourism have ensured various innovative mechanisms to sustain and prosper in the competitive world.
