Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Kana Ram Nehra and I am the Managing Director of India Authentic Tours. I was born in a small village in Rajasthan in 1981. I have spent many years working in the travel industry as a driver and during that time I have travelled around India many times with diverse people, e.g. backpacking students, families, couples of diverse ages and single travelers. Some people visited India for its religious and spiritual values whilst others have based their tour on enjoying India’s vibrant culture and culinary specialties, alongside fulfilling their dream of being treat like royalty enjoying the many temples and palaces.
We are Teresa Bastian and Michele Folmer the European Coordinators of India Authentic Tours and the grounders of the “A hand to give” community. After traveling India with Kana on several occasions we became dear friends and after a while we realized that we had similar visions when it came to ethical travel and travel education. As a result of this we sat down one day together and decided that with our diverse life experiences, ethical beliefs and vision, we should start a tour company, a tour company like no other, and that’s what we believe we have done.
Michele apart from working together with us on our diverse projects, is the one checking out the hotels and making sure that your stay not only accommodates all your needs, but also that every accommodation is comfortable and stress free, whereas Teresa concentrates on the european clients, new tours itineraries and the volunteer program. Both of us work in the Luxembourgish social sector and donate our spare time and energy to India Authentic Tours and the diverse projects surrounding it.
About the company:
Like most tour companies our services offers diverse set tours along side custom made tours to fit every budget. We use top listed hotels in each category, 3*, 4* and 5*. Our services always offer a private chauffeur and air condition transport, unless the customer wishes to travel by train and or plane.
We at India Authentic Tours are specialist in making your dreams become reality, whether you choose one of our set tours or you a customized tour that fits your personal requirements, remember "everything is possible in India". India offers many diverse majestic, cultural and spiritual experiences; there are many beautiful temples, landscapes, wildlife, beaches and monuments to visit, along side diverse art, craft, clothing, spice and local markets. Although all the hotels used offer good food, there is nothing like enjoying a good meal and a masala chai at one of the many authentic local restaurants to get that real India feeling. A local massage parlor should also not be missed. Our drivers are all highly knowledgeable when it comes to the hidden gems.
At India Authentic Tours our customer are paramount. Whether you are a young un experienced traveler, a single lady, a family with young children or an elderly couple, we will do all in our power to make sure your tour is a tour to remember, in the positive sense.
What makes us different:
- We at India Authentic Tours have very high ethical values. We will never offer or include an elephant ride or any other unethical animal related activity in any of our tours or day trips. What we do offer is educational trips and voluntary work with diverse animal related charities.
- None of our drivers will force you in to “Uncles” Bazar, we will if you choose take you to some local crafts people, but the decision is totally yours to take.
- We at India Authentic Tours also run a social welfare and educational project called “A hand to give”. This project is our way of giving back to society by helping where we can. At the moment we are helping finance some children’s educational needs along side doing what we can to help India’s elephants. Please click on to our pages “A hand to give” to find out more details.
- At India Authentic Tours live under the motto “if its ethical, its possible"
