Manoj started Rayna Tours in 2006. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Rayna Tours?
Manoj: It’s surprising to note that both Kamlesh and I ventured into the business with substantial experience however in totally different areas. My first job with Safeer Group of Companies (as a marketing executive) landed me in Dubai from Ajmer, Rajasthan. This was soon after my completion of graduation in commerce stream from Bombay University in 1999. Later, I worked with the Time Machine Group of Companies. I truly enjoyed my job and each day of a little less than a decade of my career with both these companies was exceptionally rewarding, so it was somewhat a gut feeling to call my successful job quits and start Rayna Tours with Kamlesh in 2006. I began the new innings in my professional life with nothing but just driven by my love for travel and passion to meet new people.
Don’t let people discourage or doubt your capabilities. Believe in yourself and always be willing to listen to the unique demands of your customers.
Kamlesh: Manoj and I worked together in the Safeer Group of Companies where we discovered our significant passion for travel and entrepreneurship. We always knew that we’ll start our own business someday but just didn’t know what this would be. Speaking of my work experiences, before moving to Dubai in 1998, I had worked in different roles in my hometown (Rajasthan), including employment in an ISD (International Subscriber Dialing) / STD (Subscriber Trunk Dialing) PCO and a brief experience as a tour organizer. Later, I found myself drawn to the idea of training people. I think being exposed to diverse jobs and interests actually gave me the confidence to think bigger and re-invent the travel industry by launching Rayna Tours.
