The 'Bus to London' will be the first-ever hop-on/hop-off bus service between India and the United Kingdom. sn’t it a wonderful idea to travel halfway across the world by bus? In case you agree with this statement, we have some news for you. Unbelievable but true. Adventures Overland, an expedition company, has introduced a bus trip that will ferry passengers from Delhi to London. Around 20 passengers can travel from Delhi to London in the modified luxury bus and it will cross 18 countries over a period of 70 days. In between the journey, passengers can “hop off” the bus to explore several locations including the pagodas of Myanmar, the Great Wall of China and other cities. The idea of introducing Bus To London came from a solo drive from London to Delhi that Tushar Agarwal did in 2010. Adventures Overland was founded by entrepreneurs Tushar Agarwal and Sanjay Madan. "It is an absolutely fantastic journey," Tushar told CNN Travel. The bus service from Delhi to London is expected to begin mid-2021. As far as the cost of the trip is concerned, it amounts to 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. Describing it as a “life-changing journey”, Tushar Agarwal said that around 40,000 people have already registered for Bus To London. In fact, do you know there was a bus that used to run in the 1960s from Kolkata to London?

In this one-of-a-kind road-trip, you will get to explore thousands of pagodas in Myanmar, meet rare species of Giant Pandas in Chengdu and will get to hike the Great Wall of China. Not only all this, but you also get to unwind in historic European cities such as Moscow, Vilnius, Prague, Brussels and Frankfurt before finally concluding the biggest journey of your lives in London. Apart from this, you can visit the historic city of Bukhara, Tashkent & Samarkand in Uzbekistan and cruise on the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan.

ET NOW spoke to the founder of Adventures Overland Tushar Agarwal on this epic journey and what inspired him to start this service? "We have been organising road trips around the world for the last 8 years. In 2010, I drove from London to Delhi and in 2013-14, Sanjay Madan and I drove around the world covering 90000 km in 50 countries on a journey known as great Indian world trip. This journey also created a Guinness World Record.", said (name) adding this is where the idea was conceived.

He further added that they have been organising such trips since 2017 which comprised of 27 people, "In 2017, we organised the first road trip from India to London via 18 countries known as 'Road To London'. As part of this journey, we took a convoy of 13 cars and 27 people from all over India to UK. The same trip was repeated in 2018 and 2019 also. while doing these trips, people approached us with a desire to do an overland journey from India to UK but without driving. Hence, we came up with the idea of launching a 'Bus To London' for those who are keen on doing overland journeys but don't wish to drive themselves."

Delhi to London—World's longest bus voyage to start in 2021

 

When we quizzed him about why London specifically and not any other country in the world, Adventures Overland co-founder Tushar Agarwal said that India and UK share a long history and going to London by road sounds like a larger-than-life journey which sounds impossible to do by road.
