Looking to travel imaginatively?
Welcome to EYHO Tours!
We excel in special interest group and custom travel.
The most precious commodity is your leisure time. With that core understanding, I listen, conceptualise, plan, and organise every detail until it’s perfect for you. I go directly to trusted connections for an enriched trip at surprising value.
To ensure smooth passage, I personally escort groups. I lavish the same care on custom vacations. Sure, you’ll do the sights, but why not also take in street food in Hanoi, a meal with locals in Jaipur, visit a grassroots community in Tanzania, mingle with royals in Udaipur, make friends on a Deccan train, explore tribal textiles in Kutch, cook with Maharajas in a 17th century fort, dance at vibrant festivals…and much, much more.
Unpackage your travels! Where will you go next??
Call today. If you’re in the Toronto area, drop in… I’d love to hear your ideas over a cup of chai.

“My recent textile tour to India with EYHO was nothing like I expected. . . It was a decision I will always be pleased that I made. I was welcomed from the onset by a beautiful woman, Shila Desai, company owner, tour organizer and guide extraordinaire. Her intimate knowledge of the people, culture, textiles,food and regions made the experience seamless . . . Time and financing permitting, I would travel with EYHOtours again.” — Tina Hoffer, Colorado
“The Cooking with Maharajas tour was a wonderful and accessible way to see India again after thirty years. For me, the highlights were travelling through the vibrantly coloured Rajasthan during Holi, the Ajanta and Ellora Caves, the wonderful meals, the spectacularly beautiful and peaceful Fort Ahilya, and our very knowledgeable tour guides. I would go again in a heartbeat.” - Alison C.
“Shila, your boundless energy and commitment doesn’t go unnoticed . . . thanks for arranging and organizing us to have such awesome lifelong memories. I will always treasure my time in India and will always remember who the true “heart” in EYHO was!” – Dunja K.
“I certainly find comparable university alumni tours to be hugely expensive. I get a LOT of brochures from them, so they must be a lucrative operation – and at their prices, that’s not surprising. You’re still my Preferred Supplier, Shila!” – John G.
