I loved every single second of it. In the company of Balwan and his team throughout the trip we never felt isolated. From five star,high end accommodations to the wonderful International yoga festival, great food, fantastic day trips and brilliant group of people, this exceeded all my expectations. I went on my own so a bit nervous of what to expect but from my arrival to my departure, it couldn’t have been more welcoming and peaceful. Since coming home I have recommended this place to all of my friends so really do encourage you to go for it. Fantastic! India was tranquil, beautiful and inspirational.

We had a splendid time! I would like to thank you for the fantastic, enjoyable and epic time we had in India. The Itinerary was perfect,all the locations that were chosen were scenic, historic and had a breathtaking beauty of their own. From the Elephant ride at Amber fort to the great Tonga ride at Taj, each activity and day was a unique experience in itself. The elephant ride was thrilling as it was a first-time experience for most of us. The hills of Rajasthan gave us a breath of clear mountain air. Our trip ended beautifully with perfect relaxation, yoga and mediations in yoga festival next to mother Ganga river.
This trip was an excellent value for the price. I felt safe knowing we were in good hands with Balwan and his team.From the moment, we were picked by the staff of YogaTalk at Delhi International Airport, we felt already that we were in completely capable hands and could relax and enjoy the fantastic sights – even the anarchic traffic of India. The hotels in all cities were five star and were fantastic – each one having its own different appeal and character. You can tell that we had a truly wonderful time in India with so many happy memories of the colors, the people, palaces, forts and temples that will stay with us.
