Would it possible to do a half-day tour? More people may be interested in a half-day tour... Many of us have flexible work schedules, and it is *usually* possible to catch up with half a day's work.
hi guys I 'm interested in joining kindly let me know the date and time

Guys, Just got a mail from Vovlo-


Dear Himanshu,

Was awaiting a response from you on a new date you prefer. (But now, as I re-read my mail, I note that its possible you were waiting for me to reply?)

Either way, hope you are ok to visit on a weekday. Our factory is closed on weekends. Also, we have to ensure a few people’s availability so that you have a relevant person(s) to talk to. I have checked with my colleagues and we can have them for us on anyone of the dates – June 18th to 20th. Is that ok with you?

The visit can be for around 3 hours. About 30 to 60 minutes, of presentation, Q&A and getting to know each other. Following which we take a walk around of the factory and other facilities. Typically, as a policy, you cannot drive the trucks/buses if you do not have an HCV license. Earlier we used to allow, but we had a ‘near incident’ some time back and have changed the policy. I know there is nothing like driving the trucks oneself and it’s a real good experience and I will try to see if I can find a way out, but cannot promise. Of course you will be taken around as a co-driver for sure.

I assume that your group (10 people max) includes members who do not belong to our immediate industry

Awaiting your response.

With best regards

Sohanjeet

in case you guys are OK with June 18th to 20th let me know and I will inform Volvo. I will be out of bangalore after June 15th- am relocating to another city for work, so unfortunately I will not be able to be a part of the group.
