Honestly, this is the best trip I have ever taken. I can’t thank Mariellen, Anjani, and Ujjwal enough!

“I just returned from a five-week tour of India — all planned through India for Beginners. I wanted to be in India for Holi and then visit Rishikesh and Rajasthan. I am an experienced traveler, but as a solo woman,  I felt that the trip would be richer and more hassle free with local, on-the-ground support behind me. It was the best decision I could have made. I feel that because of this planning and support, I was able to fully experience and enjoy India.”

India is far, far away but I WILL visit again, I have to.  I left a little piece of my heart there.

“India was a vacation, and it was so much more than JUST a vacation. There is a softness in India and I will miss that so much.  Mariellen and Anjani gave me an experience of a lifetime!  The tour guides and drivers they hired were professional, knowledgeable, a ton of fun, and I felt very safe. The home stays, hotel, and Ashram were wonderful.  I am so grateful to have had this unforgettable experience and I will recommend India for Beginners any day with flying colours and fanfare!
