Vishal D.

Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India

I provide Authentic India Tours with a unique and memorable holiday experience for you.

I am happy to work out tailor-made itineraries with clients. Generally, I like to discuss plans with clients and can make suggestions about special places to visit depending on our clients' interests, and available time. I run trips for all age groups and I am delighted to have children of any age too. Whether you are looking for a vacation for the individual traveler, a private group or a family holiday, I am sure that I will be able to meet your style and budget, provide inside knowledge, and deliver a first class high quality, personalized service with every journey. I am able to be flexible for the convenience and comfort of my clients.

I particularly enjoy working with clients who are interested in meeting local people and finding out about their lifestyle and cultural traditions and are ready to appreciate the beauty of rural India, as well as the history and background of the magnificent architectural heritage of India in the urban centers. Most important of all is that I ensure that the local communities benefit directly from your visit, so it is helpful to them to have you visit.

I have over 16 years experience of tourism and guiding in all different parts of India and my clients come from all parts of the world and I helps them to discover those aspects of the country which you have heard or read about but never seen.

Every day on your holiday you will not just travel through the country by luxury chauffeur-driven cars/ jeep, but you will meet local people, have a cup of tea with them and share your thoughts with them, and listen to them. Your vacations are designed to offer you flexibility so you can travel when you want and at your own pace. There is plenty of free time so you can experience each destination in your way. You will really experience life as it is lived in rural India, and see and hear about the traditions and culture of the people living in these remote villages. You may wish to explore the local area or have a look at local crafts and shops in the area of the hotel, before dinner in the hotel or a local restaurant. Where possible I will arrange for live music or dancing in the evenings, so that clients can experience our national culture.

I arrange conveniently located and specially selected hotels, guest houses; home stays with local communities, or luxury camping for travellers - all of which provide something a little different from the mainstream of chain hotels, whilst maintaining comfort. I show you culture, tell you about local traditions, share my views on Indian marriage system, the role of women in society, caste system, religious beliefs, and stories. I also offer cooking classes during the tour, when you stay in a homestay with local families.

I believe that travel should be a break from daily grind, the daily routine and daily hassles. That is why I take care of everything for you - including all reservations, all transportation being met and taken back to the airport, and all other details. So we truly allow travellers to experience destinations in a deeper, more memorable and hassle-free way.

The safety and well-being of our clients is of paramount importance to me. My job is to ensure that you are safe and comfortable. I am also very concerned about food hygiene and do my best to ensure that food is well cooked and will not cause stomach upsets. I also provide neat and clean accommodations, suitable transport and equipment.
