 I was born in India and have lived here my whole life. Showcasing the highlights and less explored sites and experiences of the Indian sub-continent to our guests is something that I am truly passionate about.

Favourites from the agency
  • I am a wildlife photographer by hobby and have visited most of India's national parks. My favourites: Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Nagarhole and Ranthambore.
  • The backwaters of Kerala and the hills of Munnar should definitely be on your travel radar when you visit India!
  • There's no image more iconic of India than that of the spectacular Taj Mahal. Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Jaisalmer are also unforgettable places to visit.
  • A great place to visit in India is Goa, Kerala, where you'll find some of the world's most beautiful beaches.

Local village in India

Our agency proposes optional village tours like the Kachpura Heritage Walk in Agra and a few parts of Rajasthan, where guests visit the village and the revenue from the tour is put towards community work. We also organise a range of slum tours in Delhi and Mumbai that help spread revenue to communities that don't usually benefit from tourism in India, therefore supporting and contributing to local well-being. Something we additionally offer our guests is an optional visit to a restaurant run by women who are victims of acid attacks. See more

    Best parts:
    The beautiful places we visited. The quality of the hotels and the restaurants. The contacts with the local population. The whole tour planned by our agency. The courtesy and excellent service from most guides and drivers. The fluidity of the transfers. Jay's patience and efficiency during the preparation stages. I had so many questions, and he always answered very quickly.
    Worst parts:
    We were a bit disappointed because we didn't see any tiger in the Sundarbans, but we still enjoyed our visit to this peaceful place, even if the level of comfort was not so high. In Kolkata, one of the guide was not as good as the others (spoke little) and took us to a store without asking us first.
    Summary:
    I made this 16 days trip in November 2019 with a friend for my 40th birthday. We had a wonderful trip overall.

We had a wonderful trip overall. We loved the diversity of the places we visited (Delhi, Agra, Darjeeling, Kolkata, Sundarbans and Varanasi). We visited essentials, but also more unknown places. I wanted to experience a total change of scenery, while maintaining a good level of comfort, and I was served!See more
