what our guests say
Combines unparalleled access with social responsibility and cultural sensitivity to achieve everything one could hope for in a specialty group tour: a creatively curated itinerary, meticulous planning, flawless execution and wonderful travel companions.
Definitely delivers above and beyond a traditional tour. Shila does extensive research and planning, as well as scouts out locations, prior to embarking on a group tour. Over time she has acquired a following of world travellers who sign up repeatedly for her tours.
My only concern is that I reserve my spot before it gets full.
The itinerary was well thought out, especially since we were in areas that had been recently opened up to tourists.
Shila 's expertise and high attention to detail were evident in the almost seamless shifts between accommodation, transportation, and sightseeing. I have nothing but praise for her company.
