« In India, we felt that Claire was not just a business relationship, but rather a member of the family!
For a long time we imagined a trip to India out of our reach for various reasons. But the call was there and we just had to go. Once we'd taken the plunge and got our plane tickets, the vertigo set in. Our first stop was planned to be at the foot of the Himalayas, to learn about yoga. What to do next? That's when we discovered India & You and had our first contact with Claire. And we immediately sensed that this was no ordinary travel agency. The program that Claire and her team had concocted for us promised some wonderful discoveries. A visit to an NGO (Vatsalya), for example, was a first for us. As soon as we arrived in Delhi, we were greeted by Claire herself and our driver Sanjay. After that, everything went according to plan, with the discovery of exceptional places and people. The scents, the colors, the palaces, the organized bazaar, the gastronomy, the people... what a wonderful country! Overall, we were lucky with the weather, despite the monsoon. The overnight stays were all magnificently well organized. Particularly the Samode Haveli, a real maharaja's palace in the middle of Jaipur. Sanjay was more of a companion than a driver for us, and we recommend him with our eyes closed. The visits and activities planned throughout our short trip enabled us to meet some beautiful people. And these people had nothing but praise for Claire! We felt that Claire was not just a business relationship, but rather a member of the family!
So a word of advice: go with your eyes closed and let Claire and her team guide you!

« Rita and Claire organized us an unforgettable trip through South India Kerala as well as Delhi in the north with the Taj Mahal. »
On April 16, 2022 we started our honeymoon, which lasted about 2.5 months. As a first destination we have chosen a very unknown country for us.
Through Rita from India & You, we were very well prepared for the upcoming trip. Rita and Claire organized us an unforgettable trip through South India Kerala as well as Delhi in the north with the Taj Mahal. Each excursion was always planned with enough time and everything always fit together perfectly. Also with the guides and drivers we did not have to struggle, because everything was perfectly planned in advance.
When we arrived in Trivandrum, we first experienced a real tropical rain. Our driver Vishnu said, this was a good omen.
Vishnu welcomed us warmly and so our adventure could finally begin. The two weeks with our guide Ajaj and the driver Vishnu were very impressive and we got to know India with all its facets. Whether it was the wonderful and beautiful hotel facilities or the real India. We got to know the local traditions and people very closely, which was very exciting for us and also very informative with all the wisdom of life.
After a wonderful experience in the south, we were travelling to North India. Our guide Umakant, an Indian who is very familiar with the German language, showed us the legendary Taj Mahal and Delhi from his point of view and with definitely very detailed historical background. A guide through and through ;-)
Thus, we were able to experience simply wonderful and unforgettable moments and are very grateful for all these impressions. We will always remember this trip with pleasure.
We would like to thank Rita and Claire for all the great support and can recommend such a trip with India & You!

« The proposal to go to Kerala for an Ayurvedic cure was immediately obvious to me. »
As I suddenly have a period of several weeks off, I contacted Rita from India & You to see what were the possibilities to go to India to recharge my batteries and take a break. Her proposal to go to Kerala for an Ayurvedic cure was immediately obvious to me.
I left at the beginning of December, just as Omicron was emerging. India & You accompanied me in the preparation of the trip, including the administrative aspects in this uncertain environment.
Once there, I had a very nice experience at Nikki's Nest: a caring and attentive service. I met beautiful people. This first step in India is an invitation to maybe go back one day and the discovery of Ayurveda: a gift.
I thank Claire and Rita for their very personalized accompaniment, very attentive to my needs. Also during the trip and also afterwards to share the experience and the memories.
