Thank you for making the old new again, every time. While I could travel alone, it’s better with you & the exceptional people you bring together. I highly recommend Nivana Palace, Sagar Tours & Sacred India Retreats for keeping us all at ease. Grateful the retreats are sacred & fun. Tip: never forego a chance to jump in the Ganga. It could change your life.
