Intra World Travel and Tours
Family Owned and Operated
Established in 1985 by former Air India executive Dial V. Gidwani, Intra World Travel and Tours (IWTT) is a family owned and operated business specializing in customized international travel services for both business and recreational travelers.
Before IWTT, Dial worked and lived in India, Japan, Hong Kong, France and Spain, where he opened Air India’s first offices. Today he and his family reside in the near north suburbs of Chicago.
Having lived on three continents, Dial certainly knows his way around the world. And so does his son, Ajay, who runs the business today. From decades of personal and professional experience, they know all the ins and outs of international travel and can tailor the perfect travel experience for you.
