 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.

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

The most and special thanks to Jay, our India Travel Advisor. The coordination of the entire trip was very good. We enjoyed to our fullest. And we must say and rather we would thank Jay, for making our India tour worth remembering. Our journey was very smooth. We would like to express our warmest thanks for the wonderful organization of our recent India trip. The local guides, all knowledgeable and speaking very good English introduced us to your country in a very agreeable way. If you ask me, what you can do better, I cannot give you any hint. You provided us a new, always clean car with a very friendly, punctual, experienced and secure driver- Sanjay. A very special thank also to him - he was amazing, a world class chauffeur, tour guide and gentleman and we would definitely request him again, if needed. He has a gifted personality for this job and such a wonderful disposition. We found the service and response of this travel agency to be excellent. Easily 5-stars. My emails were promptly responded to by Jay. We will heartily recommend the local agency and most important Jay. It was an amazing 11 days trip, custom-made to suit our interests. And it was! Hence why we didn’t want to go home. Our driver and guides were consistently on time, well-informed, eager to please and great ambassadors for their respective regions. Our hotels were lovely, most with fabulous views and all with every amenity one could wish for. We explored major cities (New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur) and smaller towns (Ranthambore, Mandawa). Everything was well planned and the itinerary was outlined well with easy to understand instructions. There are so many wonderful sites and things to do there. The people are friendly and willing to help. We were given a modem for WiFi access which was great! We would highly recommend that. It certainly was a trip we will never forget and we will definitely recommend your tour company to anyone we come in contact with. Thank you for a wonderful experience!See more
