"Atithi Devo Bhava" is a Sanskrit term which means "guest is God". In India we treat our guests like God. I've been working as a German translator in multinational companies for the last 9 years, but my dream has always been to work in the travel industry. Travelling is my passion and I'm glad I'm part of this industry now. I focus on my clients' travel by keeping only one thing in the mind, how I would like to be treated in another country. I make sure my clients feel safe and comfortable in a new country and can enjoy their trip to the fullest. I plan your trip where you can have a close look at Indian culture, food and nature and also meet local people.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"The best experiences I have had in my life are:
1) I stayed in an igloo in Himachal Pradesh and fulfilled my childhood dreams.
2) I lived in a 12th century fort in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. I've always wanted to experience the luxury and historical atmosphere you get in places like this, it's hard to put into words.
3) I visited India's most beautiful island Havelock and took a day trip to Barren Island to see India's only active volcano."

India's Golden Triangle
Feb 18 - Feb 28, 2019
We had a fabulous trip to India with a fantastic driver Vikram. However our whole experience has been marred by our guides need to feed us to the lions at every opportunity. We felt like they thought we were walking ATMs to be fleeced at every opportunity. Our first day we were talking to a store, our guide told us he just wanted to show us something.
