"We fell under Vikram's spell: happily, willingly and exasperatingly! India was seen through his eyes, nose, mouth, hand and heart. Thank you Vikram. You have created life long memories for us all and I particularly admire you and your success. We experienced a small window into your Indian soul." - Nancy C., 2024 India traveller
