Want to experience a road trip from Delhi to London; well the first-ever hop-on/hop-off bus service between the two distant cities in two different continents is now a reality. The bus will ferry 20 passengers on a modified luxury bus, inspired in part by the Hippie Trail buses that crisscrossed the world in the 1950s and 1960s.
The bus will drive through the roads of 18 countries in 70 days with passengers hopping off to marvel at the pagodas of Myanmar, hike the Great Wall of China and wander historic cities including Moscow and Prague. Adventures Overland, an expedition company, has introduced this bus trip. This idea sprouted 10 years ago when Tushar Agarwal did a solo drive from London to Delhi. He along with Sanjay Madan co-founded Adventures Overland.
The bus service from is expected to be operational from mid-2021 at an estimated cost of USD 20,000. To fit it into your budget, you may opt for just a part of the journey that is divided into four legs. You can also choose to start the journey from Delhi or London. Tushar Agarwal said that they have got good response with around 40,000 people booking tickets.
