Traveling is about making memories. Though traveling around and exploring new places is one of the best things you can do for yourself, it is always important to explore places and meet people who may share the same philosophy yet live up to different sets of values.

Having born in India, it’s great to share the inside secrets of I have learnt along the way. I also wanted to get a taste of what has made India unique and different in many ways. My experiences give me the chance to encourage people to visit India because it’s an awesome destination in itself. I really enjoy being able to transmit and help others to plan their journeys using what I have seen and experienced. It feels like I am a part of their trip. It’s not the end yet, I found India is just awesome.

“Traveling will make you learn how to appreciate, adjust, not to complain, to be less judgmental and be at peace mentally; how beautiful the people are in a country full of contrasts"

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started as an Area Franchise manager in Cosmetic division of an organization, but felt passionless about my work. What always shone through for me was travel, though, so I began taking short trips and discovered a world I never knew existed—one where I could think outside the box and truly become me.

Travelling has given me a taste of the kind of travel that I made it a part of my career. I found the perfect balance for me at Active India Holidays where I get chance to work on multilingual products. We offer some of the best products and programs for adventure, culture and families Tours.

'India will change you forever’, you would hear this over and over again until unless you would travel to the subcontinent.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Goa is one of the most attractive places to visit in India. This small state is famous for its beautiful beaches and has many other tourist attractions like forts, spice plantations, and museums. I added a day along with New Year's long weekend with my friends which gave me 4 days to explore Goa. I have been to Goa many times, but this time I wanted to make it different. Wanted to spend a whole week there and explore the places I haven’t seen before.. Here the bike ride also gave us joy. First day we visited Dona Paula beach and the shooting location where part of the shooting of the film "Singham" took place.

On the very same day, we enjoyed the water sports and related rides at Calangute beach. The rides were full of excitement and it was first in a lifetime experience. Goa is so peaceful. I LOVE GOA. It's hard to believe we've only been on the trip for four days. The distance we've already travelled and the amount we've seen is overwhelming. Without a doubt it stands alone as the most incredible, travel experience of my life."

Tiger safari, India - Nov 5 - Nov 9, 2017

Traveler: Marsha M. - Local specialist: Priya Dikshit

All of our guides were amazing! Our Delhi guide was excellent! He spent a great deal of time waiting with us for late trains and delayed flights! The person who overlooked our stay in Ranthambore was very continentious and checked on us daily! Our safari guide was great too!
The hotel was not the greatest! The staff, except in reception were awesome and so friendly! Hotel needs some updating! Wi go only in lobby, no hairdryers or irons! Did see a tiger 🐅 due to great guide. They all spoke good English!
Thank you! We would use Kim Kim again!!

We loved Elephant Pass yoga retreat! The yoga, people, food were incredible. Wonderful adventure. Samon was excellent tour guide in Kerala/Cochin. He was always on time, spoke English well and took us to a beautiful shop. We met many kind people on the houseboat. Everything was perfect, making for a great first impression of India. Thank you.
