Dear Shali, Greetings from the Sunshine State!

I hope you are doing great. Thank you so much for letting me experience your beautiful country, I really enjoyed the trip! The itinerary looks very good and giving me better understanding of what you can offer, beside what we have already done during our fam trip. As all of our clients are FITs everything depends on lots of different factors. Most of our clients would be looking for a little shorter trips but again it all depends. Hopefully, we are going to have our clients going to India soon!

Hi Shal, my clients already told me they were very happy during their stay at Oberoi and with your company's services! They enjoyed the tours and Mumbai except they said it was very hot!! Otherwise, they are happy campers :) I truly appreciate your help during all this process and will keep you in mind for future clients. Thanks again and we'll be in touch!

I’m reaching out to let you know how grateful I am to have met Shal at the recent Waterstone Roadshow in New Canaan CT. He has been immensely helpful with a hotel reservation in India that a client asked me to book for him. The property is not Virtuoso, nor is it affiliated with any of the preferred partner programs to which I belong, so I reached out to Shal to see if he had any local connections and could provide assistance. He’s been wonderful to work with (and patient, since the client has changed his mind a few times!) and has been able to secure valuable amenities that I don’t believe I’d be able to obtain on my own. What an asset he is and I will absolutely consider him my India “go-to” DMC for client inquiries in the future.

I had a wonderful 2 week trip to Northern India on an itinerary I arranged with Shal at Platinum by TransIndia. I will absolutely book clients with them in the future! At every step, I was learning and being exposed to ideas and experiences, while staying at lovely properties. My trip included Delhi, Varanasi, Agra, Ranthambore, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, and Mumbai. Some of the "never-forget" highlights included having a private sitar concert aboard a rowboat on the Ganges at dawn, the Taj Mahal at sunrise, spotting a leopard when on safari in Ranthambore, meeting so many artisans especially in Jaipur, cooking on a farm outside of Udaipur, and watching low-tech but highly efficient local businesses in Mumbai (like the dabbawalas). Thank you to Shal and the whole team for a tremendous trip carried out with the utmost attention to what I wanted....just what I hope for my clients.

When I’m designing travel itineraries to India, Maldives, Sri Lanka…I don’t trust anyone else to assist me than Shalivahan "Shal" Singh with Platinum by Trans India. I first experienced the beauty and culture of India with Shal during a FAM trip early in my career. His knowledge and passion will connect you with the people of India Subcontinent. To this date, experiencing India with Shal has been one of my top experiences. My clients are delighted with the attention to detail, small surprises, and VIP access that only Shal can deliver.

"The tours were better than expected, and the guides were all knowledgeable and able to tailor to what we needed. We saw so much and it's making us realize how much we must have missed when we visited previously. I'm so glad you recommended the Silk Route and Channapatna! It was one of the highlights of the trip, and seeing the toys made live was incredible!

Bannerghatta was also an incredible experience, far beyond our expectations. Our guide for that day, Mr. Srinivas knew everyone and through his connections we got a private tour of the Butterfly Park and were the first jeep into the Safari. This allowed us to see the animals up close and undisturbed. It was an awesome experience, one that we'd highly recommend in Bangalore.
The Bangalore Oota Company was also a great experience, and one of the best meals we've ever had!

We had one driver (who was great!) for the activities, and separate drivers for pickup and drop off from /to the airport for the trip which worked out really well. The drivers and guides also got along well with parents, so overall, a very pleasant experience all around."

Shal - thank you to you and your team for making this such a wonderful experience for my clients. Getting emails and feedback like this makes me so happy that they were able to really fully take advantage of their time there - and I'm so grateful that your drivers & guides exceeded expectations. I will definitely be in touch the next time I have clients requesting India. Thank you again!

When I arrived in India on a tour curated by Trans India Holidays, my luggage did not. While on my flight, Trans India Holidays was already a step ahead of the issue. They found a wonderful guide who took me to find all of the necessities to make me feel at home and more. Then they found and delivered my luggage!

I had the pleasure of traveling with Rajesh Kaushik, their VP and Head of Operations. Every member of the Trans India Holidays team, from the drivers to the guides to the executives has a singular focus - their clients experience.

Trans India Holidays incorporated the rich history of India into each day, effortlessly… Their knowledge, attention to detail, and ability to read the group’s needs — and pivot the entire itinerary on a dime — was uncanny.

Whether it was a private tour of the Taj at sunrise, a last minute request for a local 12 course dinner tasting of regional cuisines, a private charter to Elephanta Island, or a reading with a local astrologist, Trans India Holidays fulfilled our needs in the most attentive way.

They created an indelible curated experience, and delivered life-long connections to the most beautiful country I have ever been to. Any client I have going to India, I entrust to Trans India Holidays.

Kudos to Trans India Holidays for my first-time trip to India. From the moment I landed, they were there for me every step of the way. The most important aspect of traveling with Trans India Holidays is that they are flexible to work with you and make last minute changes to meet your wishes. They understand that this is your personal experience and not a set schedule. Book with confidence and enjoy your Indian Subcontinent experience with the professionals at Trans India Holidays!”

When I first started in the travel industry as a Luxury Travel Advisor, I thought that the business was largely about places – the destinations people wanted to visit. In the over twelve years since I began, I have come to realize that the industry is about people and connecting them to the places through the right people. My clients trust me because I am able to trust my suppliers, who are my partners around the world. Trans India Holidays represents the best of this connection. I had the pleasure to travel with Rajesh Kaushik, their Vice President and Head of Operations on a recent trip to India, and I know that his integrity is beyond reproach. Does Trans India Holidays like many Indian DMC’s, know their destination well, cultivate knowledgeable and engaging guides, have strong relationships with hotels and insider access to sites where available? Absolutely yes. But what sets them apart is that they also are constantly striving to improve. They listen. They are committed to taking care of the people who travel with them. And I am most confidant that they will provide an incredible travel experience for your client."

Trans India Holidays planned and executed a flawless first trip to India. During our brief time there, we saw major cultural landmarks such as the Taj Mahal and the City Palace in Udaipur, experienced a thrilling tuk-tuk ride through the narrow streets, saw the rich street life of Indian cities and stayed at remarkable 5 star Taj hotels. Hotels in India are a perfect way to feel luxurious while also experiencing the culture of the country. There are several things that particularly stay in my mind - helping feed the poor at the Sikhh temple in New Delhi and seeing the abundance of love that some people show towards their fellow humans. I won't ever forget the joy that brought me. Visiting Elephanta Island and seeing the ancient stone work there was another sight that was unforgettable. We loved how flawless the logistics were and that we always got to the next place on schedule. My first trip to India with Trans India Holidays has whetted my appetite to revisit this vast and varied country."

I have had the pleasure of participating on a tour curated by Trans India Holidays. Rajesh, Shal and the rest of the Trans India Holidays team did not disappoint. We did not have to worry about a thing as all was seamless and perfectly executed. From airport pickup to tours to hotels, all was an ultimate luxury experience. Being a luxury travel agent with very discerning clients, I have the utmost confidence and trust that Trans India Holidays will curate the best of the best luxury tours.

I had the pleasure of traveling with Trans India Holidays for 10 days as we visited The Golden Triangle of India then ended our journey in Mumbai. As a travel advisor, I travel frequently to explore new destinations. My trip with Trans India Holidays was the most culturally significant journey I have ever experienced. Trans India Holidays brought the culture to life with intimate experiences in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, and Mumbai. India is a location that can nudge you outside of your comfort zone, and with the specialized guides and tours I was able to confidently experience the unique culture. I touched a cobra, watched as a community worshiped, saw the rich and poor being served meals side by side, and spent the afternoon with a brilliant young man living in the slums of Mumbai. I highly recommend Trans India Holidays to give travelers an authentic experience in India. It will change your life.

I love working with Trans India Holidays! I took a Familiarization trip to India turned out to be such a great experience with surprises around every corner. The people were wonderful. Everyone in the company is so friendly, very informative and so likable, with a great sense of humor. I felt comfortable with every single one of them. You could feel the responsibility they felt to ensure we had a great time & remained safe. The hotels were incredible & the staff was just as incredible. I can’t express completely how we felt so blessed to be in the presence of the entire team & such a beautiful country with impressive ancient history.

When I sent my clients with Trans India Holidays, they went above and beyond. First, amazing guide and driver. They truly took care of them and gave us a unique experience. Incredibly knowledgeable -- culture, religion, people, nature. Also, they had a small issue at the airport, and they handled everything with professionalism and a “can do” attitude. We love India!

I traveled with Trans India Holidays as well as I have booked them for my clients. I have been in the travel industry for over 40 yrs and can honestly say Trans India Holidays “does it right”. The attention to detail puts them among the top tier of vendors, not just in India , but worldwide. All the properties they use have the best of amenities as wellas prime locations. For example in Agra, the view of the Taj Mahal from your room is breathtaking, not to mention much more convenient than anything else in the area.

The experiences offered are varied , fun and educational all at the same time. Whether riding the local train, going to the market or a cooking class, it is all handled with care. Trans India Holidays can curate any type of experience the guest is looking for as well as being very efficient in handling such requests.
