My Background

Ajay comes to Civilized Adventures with travel to 27 countries under his belt and over a decade & a half of experience advising other travelers. From backpacking in Thailand & South America to teaching English in Eastern Europe and Asia, Ajay's love of travel is fueled by the desire to experience life through the eyes of others.

Highlights along his journey have been: swimming with sharks at Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, trekking Peru’s Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, working with orphanages in Indonesia, and swimming at Angel Falls in Venezuela. Especially rewarding was the time he spent teaching English to students in Russia, Ukraine, Indonesia and Turkey - for whom knowing English would mean a better life.

In Ajay's own words, “ Experiencing unusual international culinary delights, discovering out of the way hidden gems, meeting people from all over the world and having the chance to make a difference in people’s lives – this is what matters most to me. I love getting out of my comfort zone.”

Ajay is a cruise specialist and a certified Silversea Elevate member!

Ajay was a super travel agent to deal with! Ajay takes the time to understand the type of holiday you want, and the type of traveller you are. He is very organized and provides clear information & excellent suggestions. Ajay gets back to you when he says he will get back to you. He is personable, easy to deal with, and takes care to ensure your holiday goes smoothly. All of the arrangements Ajay made went off like clock-work while we were travelling. We will definitely be booking further adventures with Ajay's help.

Ajay was fabulous to work with! During the planning stage of our Hong Kong/China adventure, Ajay was efficient, excellent at following-up with us, and generated some wonderful ideas for our trip. He was tenacious about finding the best airfares possible for us. When our trip was underway, he was quickly responsive to our occasional question as we travelled. Ajay is good-humoured, patient, and has been really very fun to work with on all the trips we have booked with him so far. We highly recommend getting Ajay's help when planning a vacation!
