My Background

Dear Traveler

If you share my lust for life and curiosity for culture, I invite you to explore the Indian Sub-continent, undoubtedly, one of the worlds’ most extraordinary and enriching destinations. My passion to take you off the beaten track into the heart of the destination to create lasting memories is evident in every journey I plan for you.

Why travel with me? I am originally from India and have worked in the Travel Industry for over 32 years both, in India & the US. I have my offices in San Jose, CA and in India, so you are working directly with the people who know and understand your needs and deliver the services. My first-hand knowledge of the needs of the International traveler and my objective insight into the experience these countries offer, allows me to craft an itinerary filled with adventures that are ideally suited to you.

As a professional Travel Consultant, I’ve been serving discerning clients and Travel Agents looking for personalized experiences in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. My annual visits (spanning 3-6 months) help me find off-the-beaten-path places, stay current on unique accommodations, and personally experience fine dining or hole-in-the wall restaurants which only the locals know of. These hidden gems help make your trip extraordinary. And your trip is made truly remarkable by one-of-a-kind Insider Experiences like my personalized jaunts into Old Delhi, my food tours (I’m a bit of a foodie), when you celebrate festivals of Diwali or Holi with my family & friends or perhaps attend a wedding. Clients regularly remark upon the one-on-one interactions with local people as a highlight of their trip: those unforgettable opportunities to have a glimpse of—or even join in—the everyday lives of locals. With insightful itinerary planning, on the ground expertise and far reaching local contacts your behind-the-scenes encounters will be truly exceptional.

I balance meaningful personal experiences with the unique pleasures of the destination. My success is based on knowing you, by delivering genuine personal attention and then meticulously planning a tailored itinerary to ensure that nothing is overlooked. Once the trip begins, you are well cared for by a team of experts. And if the timing is right, I will be honored to personally welcome you to New Delhi and show you around as you develop your India-legs. My guides are handpicked for their skill and expertise, and my staff closely monitors each journey from start to finish. Should you have any questions, help is only a local phone call away—24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Alternatively, you can join me on one of my personally escorted small-group journeys. Limited to a maximum of 12 like-minded travelers, when you travel with me, it’s like visiting a local friend. My journeys are guaranteed departures with as few as two guests. I believe that travel is made better by the people you meet along the way, the epicurean delights that satisfy the soul, the places you stay that pamper your spirit and the things you experience that enrich your mind. With a mix of guided excursions and free time to explore on our own, you will enjoy the best that the destinations offer.

I look forward to the privilege of crafting a journey ideally suited for you. Or joining me on a small-group journey for an authentic experience that is truly unique.
