Tours Tailored Just For YOU or a Group of Any Size

Let us help you get to know two of our favorite countries...


South Africa with its awesome beauty and diverse cultures.


India with its vibrant colors, beautiful people and astonishing sites!


Sometimes you just want to travel on your own, or perhaps just want to be with a few special friends or family members. We can design an itinerary, with dates and a price that meet your needs exactly. You’ll go to places few travelers ever get to see, as well as all the places you want to see.
 

No matter the size of your group, we will create an experience of a lifetime to incredible places: ranging from the Taj Mahal to off-the-beaten-track ancient Jewish sites that are very difficult to visit on your own. We always make sure to reflect your interests, as well as the diversity of India and South Africa that we know so well. Iris and Howard have traveled to these places many times. We have created unforgettable experiences for ourselves and for so many people. Let us do the same for you!

Every trip is tailored to your individual needs and interests. Don't let anything get in your way...sometimes you won’t want to walk - we can arrange for special transportation, like a tuk-tuk (auto rickshaw) or even an elephant. And sometimes you may tire of Indian food or just don't like spicy food. We like to help you with most food likes, or requirements, too.

No matter your travel style, together we will decide on the best hotels, meals, guides/escorts and how to travel within each. Whenever possible we use 5-star iconic luxury hotels we know well and really like. Occasionally we can suggest hotels that supersede even these in luxury. Or perhaps you will want some that are not so luxurious to try to keep costs down. It all depends on your budget.

We Do It All - And More

​Once you are all set with your itinerary, we can suggest and even arrange meals at our favorite restaurants – or perhaps you will want to do meals on your own. Regardless, it is the common practice in India to include scrumptious western and Indian breakfasts in the cost of your stay.


And while we don’t book international flights, if you would like help selecting your international flights, we can provide that, too. We and our clients have flown these routes many times.

The best way to decide what’s right for you is to read through our website, especially Sample Itineraries for both South Africa and India. Decide which country will be your next to visit and what you like most about them, what you would add or delete. Both are so diverse, the possibilities are endless.

Whether you're looking for ideas, information, implementation or general cheerleading...we will do it all!
