Who are our tours for?

by Nicole Farrell

We are a small Australian, female owned company that attracts guests from all over the world. Travel is about connecting with people from other countries and cultures and we do this on tour with the friends we make and in the country through experiences.

We welcome travellers who have an open mind, go with the flow attitude and willingness to experience new things. There is no age bracket but we generally attract women over 50. We welcome husbands and partners as well as solo travellers. As a solo traveller,  enjoy the company of like-minded ladies and feel safe and relaxed knowing everything is taken care of. We offer a single supplement if you'd prefer a room on your own, or we can help connect you with other ladies travelling solo and you can discuss sharing a room.

Anne and Judy travelling like locals in India. Most of our tour is done in a private bus but you can't travel to India and not experience a tuk-tuk! We have a team of trusted drivers who will take care of you.

  

Our small groups allow for flexibility and spontaneity. One of the unique experiences on our recent Royal Rajasthan tour was a behind the scenes glimpse at a Bollywood movie set in Mandawa. The lead actor was staying in our havelli so we were able to meet him and get photos!

   

We love a spontaneous stop such as feeding cows in India or meeting a family on their farm in the Thar desert of Rajasthan.

  

On our walking tour of Jaipur, the pink city, we were warmly welcomed into a saree shop encouraged to try a saree with no pressure to purchase. The hospitality of India is incredible and this was a memorable, fun experience.

 Mandawa is off the tourist trail and is one of my favourite stops on our Royal Rajasthan tour. Mandawa was on the silk road and wealthy merchants build extravagant mansions (havelis) with amazing hand-painted frescos. Here our group can be seen in the courtyard of the haveli.  

We like to shop in markets and meet locals like this friendly father and son duo. The shopping in Marrakesh can be overwhelming at first but we'll be with you to advise how to bargain. (8 years living in Asia means I have fine tuned my negotiating skills!)

When in India, you'll often be asked for photos and selfies. It's part of the experience and a great way to chat to locals who are often exploring their country.

If these experiences appeal to you, contact Nicole to discuss a tour. Make 2020 a year for travel memories!
