I developed my passion for exploring the world and different cultures during a school exchange in Senegal. It taught me that we all have aspirations and can learn from one another, if we are open minded. Born in Germany, I travelled extensively through Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Russia, Dubai, Singapore and New Caledonia. After I graduated with a bachelor’s in International Tourism, I lived and worked in England, Germany, Australia, and now Canada. I enjoy my travels most when I get close to locals and learn directly from them about their culture. My most memorable experiences are swimming with whale sharks, hot air ballooning in the Australian Outback and skydiving in New Zealand. My bucket list is long, but at the top of the list is Bhutan – the only country in the world who measures the Gross National Happiness!

I started travelling when I was young, and quickly developed a love for exploring, often daydreaming about adventure and travel. Experiencing so many different cultures made me want to know more about the world and its people, places, traditions and cultures. I began my career in the travel industry when I joined a luxury cruise line, eventually exploring six continents, 63 countries, and over 150 cities, always loving waking up in a different place each morning. My favourite part of my job is learning about our guests’ stories, their culture and their experiences. I've met amazing and inspiring people, everyone with a different, unique story. These people are the reason behind my love for travel. Travel unites us. It is the shared passion to see and explore the world.

My passion for travel goes back to my time in Iran, where I studied Molecular Biology and then started working as a travel agent. When I moved to Canada, I was lucky enough to continue to work as a travel agent, which I'm really happy enough, because I Just can't get enough of travel! 

Travel and tourism are my true passions and I love to discover exciting new cultures. So far I've visited Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai, Turkey, Thailand, the UK, the USA, and Mexico - and I hope to extend this list in the very near future. I can't wait!

My love of travel and discovering new places began when I was very young, with my parents regularly taking me abroad on family vacations. Later, as a teenager, if not off having adventures in foreign lands, I could be found reminiscing and daydreaming about travel and sharing my passion with others. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have set foot on all seven continents, to have visited over 75 countries worldwide and to have lived for extended periods in five remarkable destinations: Wales, France, Germany, Australia and Bali, Indonesia.

Now in my 19th year in the travel industry (9 of those with Indus), my passion is still there and having taken my own children out to discover the world - from snorkelling with sharks in Belize, fishing for piranha in the Amazon basin of Peru to watching orangutans in the wild in Borneo and climbing the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia: I hope that I have instilled a love of travel in them.

Helping people discover the pleasure of travel and watching them get bitten by the travel bug is what I enjoy most.

I began my career in Cultural Tourism as a lecturer for European educational groups in the Middle East. I studied architecture and graphic design but found in tourism the ideal field to fulfill my love of history, art and people. I have lived on 3 different continents and traveled extensively in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas! I can speak English, French and Farsi fluently and can get by in German, Spanish and Arabic.
I am very passionate about the cultural diversities one finds while traveling and my greatest ambition is to keep on traveling. I want to see the great architecture, the flora and fauna, taste the good food, drink the exotic wines, dance to different beats and enjoy the exciting nightlife that our world has to offer. That’s why my favorite destination is South America, it encompasses all of that and more!

I have an irresistible desire to explore the world around me, so there’s no doubt that I have a bad case of wanderlust.  Ever since I was a little girl, I have been passionate about traveling—and I’ve been working in the travel and tourism trade since I was 16-years-old.

I obtained a degree in Tourism Management at Capilano University in 2018 and I love what I do now because I have a strong belief that everyone should experience travel. Seeing other people enjoying new places and experiences brings me great happiness. I have so many places on my bucket list, but seeing the Big 5 in Africa and swimming in the atolls of the Maldives are at the very top of my list.

"Do what he must, he will always remain a traveler at heart". Somebody once said this about me. I didn’t know at the time how right they were as I have been on a lifelong journey to build connections between people, places and the environment. I have always had a passion for travel and exploration. Early on in my career I spent time exploring the Indian Himalayas as a Tour Leader however the thirst for learning about international travel trends has taken me to various corners of the world. Throughout my travels I have fostered my other great passion, photography. One of my most memorable travel moments was getting up close and personal with Komodo Dragons in Indonesia. I could have spent all day taking photos of these near-mythical creatures! Climbing an active volcano was a highlight of my time in Chile, less adrenaline inducing, but remarkable in its own way were the beaches and highlands of Cornwall, UK.

I have always been fascinated by travel, and grew up watching shows that involve travel, especially the reality show “The Amazing Race”, which inspired me to discover unfamiliar people and cultures. Once the spark was ignited, I took courses in travel and tourism, and the rest is history. Travelling is what I’m passionate about, and in my role at Indus Travels I am very fortunate to be learning new things, which gets me excited for continued new experiences.

I grew up in Jaipur, one of the most visited cities in India, so I was always surrounded by tourism. After college, I started my travel industry career leading special interest groups in North India. The tours that I put together became quite popular, so much so, that it led to royalty and celebrities taking my tours! My work in special interest tourism enabled me to develop travel programs geared to different travel sectors, such as youth tourism and lead to my working with international companies in 18 different countries. I have a love of travel, and the knowledge that travel is often a life changing experience helps me promote tours to our clients; whether private groups or individuals. My goal is to give our guests life changing experiences.

Travelling is an adventure and it’s also a healer. Meeting new people in new places fills me with curiosity about the world around me, so travel feeds my desire to learn about new cultures and increases my respect for different places. Over the years I have explored everything from idyllic countryside landscapes to dynamic cities, wild mountains, peaceful beaches and fascinating deserts. I have travelled solo, as well as with groups of some of the most amazing and passionate travellers you could hope to meet. My visit to the UAE had a major impact on me. It was a turning point in my travelling adventure and unlike anything else I’ve experienced, because it’s a somewhat artificial setting, but it’s also fascinating and full of life at the same time.

15 years ago I completed a tourism degree with a goal that I would show my mother the world as I had already been bitten by the travel bug. I learned that it is a priceless gift to create memories in different destinations. Some of my most memorable experiences are learning not to fall while surfing in Costa Rica, swimming with the sharks in Belize, walking on a pure white sand beach in the Philippines, swimming with dolphins in Jamaica, feeding kangaroos in Australia, visiting the Big Buddha in Hong Kong, enjoying the magical sites of Machu Picchu, and paragliding in Lima. The biggest bonuses in travel are recharging your batteries, leaving your worries at home, and returning to share your stories with family and friends. This has made me realise I love helping others create their own great travelling experiences.

I’ve always loved biking and I’ve been to several places in India on my bike. My most adventurous bike journey was to Ladakh—a 1,200-kilometer journey from where I live in Delhi. I’ve been working in the travel industry for six years now, and it gives me immense pleasure to serve every single customer. It’s really easy to connect with all the travellers that I assist and guide, as we all have a respect and passion for what this beautiful world has to offer. I believe in going with the flow, and no matter where my travels take me in the future, I am pretty sure that I will find my share of happiness there.

I grew up in the foothills of the great Himalayan range, so off-road adventures in the wilderness have always attracted me. While pursuing my degree in hospitality and tourism management, my desire to explore grew. I scaled the Himalayan range by road on a voyage that stretched across four states in 10 days. Travelling 1,100 kilometres across one of the highest elevations in the world rebooted all five of my senses. I’ve also had off-road adventures in the Thar Desert, the vineyards of Nashik and the Western Ghats of Goa.

Since moving to Canada, I have experienced the Northern Lights, which was one of the most breathtaking and magical moments of my life. I have also driven across three Canadian provinces and five American states. The call of the wild in Alaska is set to be answered soon!

Travel to me is the eternal satisfaction that drew me to this industry 25 years ago. Since then, my life has been dedicated to providing my clients with blissful travel experiences. I worked in Dubai for 12 years, a very multi-cultural environment, and saw how the travel industry was changing and adapting to new technologies.  Heading the operations department at Indus Travels; ensuring that schedules are in place and itineraries carefully crafted makes my role in the company often feel like that of a conductor of a grand orchestra.

Growing up in India, family holidays were always my favourite traditions, as they helped me realize my passion for travel. Trekking the globe and train journeys are some of my most memorable travel moments. I really never could give up travelling, as I covered Scotland on an epic eight-day road trip even when I was completing my master’s degree. After visiting some of the most incredible places on earth like Dubai, Sri Lanka, Seychelles, Maldives, Costa Rica, Egypt and Peru. I am currently exploring Canada, and working in the travel industry here just continues to expand my bucket list.

I realized at a young age that travel broadens the mind and creates learning opportunities, and this led me to a career at British Airways. I’m now in my 27th year in the Travel Industry, and I’m as passionate about providing outstanding travel experiences to our clients today as I was when I started out almost three decades ago. I relish the opportunity to use my skills to bring the exceptional value of Indus’ tours to our wonderful guests.

I first realized my passion for travel when I went to college, where I met many like-minded travellers. I love the opportunity to explore new cultures and how people live in different countries. I enjoy hearing about their daily lives and I learn from all of their stories. I have always been a mountain-lover, so I’ve spent some time in the major mountainous regions of India, such as Rishikesh, Manali and Dharamshala. I also enjoy the beaches of Daman and Goa. And I hope to travel more in the future, as the high I get from it is simply incredible.

When it comes to travel, my personal mantra is: 'Travel light and with an open mind'. This has served me well in my travel experiences across Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America & it's also been useful in my career, which has included travel industry roles in the Philippines and India - and now in Canada. 

I joined Indus Travel in 2009 and I've worked with many groups from across the USA and Canada, putting together some amazing trips to places like Peru, South Africa, Italy and Ireland. I really enjoy working in group travel as it helps people to gain a deep understanding of different cultures and business procedures across the world.

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but I 've lived and worked in Israel and Portugal. I made the move to Canada in 2017 and I'm very happy here. 

I moved to Israel when I was 18 and studied International Relations and Latin American and Spanish studies in Jerusalem. I worked for the Israeli Board of Tourism for more than five years, where I was promoting Israel to the South American market. I have also lived in Portugal, where I was selling incoming religious tours in Western Europe. 

Over the years I've visited 30 countries on four continents - and I speak five languages - so I think it's fair to say that travel is in my blood!

I grew up in Punjab, India. I was born into a military family, so I travelled a lot while I was growing up - and I loved it! I've always been able to recognize how pleasurable it is for people when they get the opportunity to unwind in the right place at the right time. That's one of the reasons I have such a big passion for travel. I've been living in Vancouver and working as a travel agent since 2005. I get to meet people from all over the world every day, which I really enjoy. I also like to build a truly personalised and customized itinerary. But what I love the most is being able to find great deals for my clients - deals they won't find on the internet - and helping them to fulfil their travel dreams.
