What other travelers say

I honestly don’t believe I could have asked for a better taste of India and keep recommending you as the "Ultimate" guide for anyone who wants a group tour. You somehow managed to ensure we saw so much and yet found the balance for freedom and relaxation…I really cannot thank you enough for facilitating this amazing opportunity for me as I certainly would not have done it were it not for you.

It was such an amazing and positive experience! First time using a tour guide and I was glad I did. I was very impressed with how you made our trip smooth as possible and if I had planned this trip on my own, I don’t think i would have seen those places we went to…fascinating places I had never heard about before. I also loved meeting new people and connecting with everyone!

I can not say enough good things about the trip and there’s no way to express in words how grateful I am of the experience. You really paid attention to everyone's individual interests and genuinely wanted to make everyone happy. It felt so personalized. The service was concierge level! All the little details and surprises you put into the tour just made it so special… and you were able to answer everyones questions with your knowledge of the country!! The accommodations, drivers, and other guides were awesome too! I can go on forever. I only took away great memories and I look forward to doing another tour in the future!

The trip was amazing, on every level. Your experience and curiosity has created an amazing itinerary, and your willingness to accommodate the random wishes that came up was above and beyond. India is just endless fascination. The accommodations were great, and as someone that doesn’t really care about the food experience…it was great!! You are just the perfect host!!

What a wild and exciting place India is. I see why you love it so much! I really can’t thank you enough for introducing me to India in the way you did. I’m so glad I saw what I did, and for your attentiveness to our questions and requests.
Rose M.
Overall, the trip was amazing. Usually, when I go on vacation, I plan everything. There is no way I could have planned a trip of this magnitude. Your experiences and the connections that you have made in India allowed me, and I am sure the others, to have the best time. It's an overwhelming country, intense and beautiful - thank you for being a great guide to help us navigate India!
