Tracey, Travel Journaling in India

Thank you for such a fun holiday!

It was only a small group and very much catered to our individual interests.

Nicole and her team are amazing, nothing is too much trouble from sourcing chocolate to tailoring visits to sites according to interests.

The food was everything from street food to fancy restaurants, yet it was always delicious.

Thanks again for so many memories and fantastic shopping.

Only way to see India!

I had the most amazing 3 weeks with Nicole on her India tour.

My expectation went beyond anything I could have ever dreamt of.

Nicole showed us a county in colour and culture that I had only seen in pictures before.

Her knowledge is endless and her stories will keep you laughing.

Thanks Nicole, you made my holiday so much fun and a beautiful memory I will cherish. You too will fall in love with India.
