    About Me

    • I'm very interested in people and places, and I care for both.
    • I speak fluent French, English, Hindi and Punjabi.
    • I run an eco Bed & Breakfast homestay in New Delhi's green suburbs, not far from New Delhi International Airport (IGIA)
    • Unlike most guides, I do not work on a commission basis. Therefore I will not make you waste your money or time
    • I'm a published travel writer-photographer-researcher
    . My passion for my country and my people is what I attempt to convey to my clients through tour guiding, and that is the sentiment I wish for them, too, to return home with.
    • I have a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in History, and qualifications in translation-interpretation (English -French), and in tourism
    • I worked at Government of India Tourist Office in Paris as Information Officer.
    • I provide authentic insight into the local culture, and safety too
    • I have several years' experience in the travel and tourism industry
    • My focus areas are historical places, culture, ecotourism, rural tourism, slow travel for women, seniors and nature-lovers

    . I recently upgraded my tourguiding skills by qualifying as a First Aid Worker and Basic Life-saver/Healthcare Worker

    • I have my own car to drive tourists around in. If they prefer to further cut down on costs, I am prepared to use public transport with them
    • I am able to handle groups of up to 8 persons
    • My English and French are much better than that of most guides in my area.
    • I take personal interest in ensuring my clients' interests, pace of travel and safety are met. I am also attentive to their moods and physical state of health on a day to day basis.
    • I am mature and understanding, and a good trouble-shooter.
    • I am aware that while working through an organization such as Synotrip, it is not only my own reputation as a Tour Guide that I need to preserve but also that of Synotrip and its other agents I might be working with.
    • I have traveled very widely both within India and abroad, and have a penchant for off-beat places and activities.
    • I am familiar with foreign cultures, lifestyles and expectations.
    • I am adept at creating customized itineraries.
    • I am particular about hygiene and health, and take care to minimize my clients' exposure to germs.
    • I ensure all my clients return home with very happy memories of their India Holiday, and thirst for more!
