In the month of December 2019, after being 4 months in India for studying reasons, my parents decide to come and visit me. My worries were really huge: how to make them enjoy this amazing country I fall in love with? How to let them see India in an authentic way, avoiding touristic traps but at the same time make them comfortable?
Here comes Deepa with Shakti Holidays!
She helped me to organize the perfect travel! We met for chance and from this meeting just came out a beautiful friendship and sharing relation thanks to which I really learn a lot about Indian culture, life and habits. My parents were so enthusiast about everything that now they are looking forward to the next travel to India. We spend 10 days in the south, starting from the amazing nature of Kerala then we move to Karnataka to feel the vibes of the ancient culture visiting the archeological sites of Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal and then to the woderful and magic city of Hampi. As final destination we went to the French colony of Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu and here we tasted real India, wore sarees, cooked indian food, enjoyed the colours, parfumes and sounds. We all fall in love with every place we visited and this is mainly due to the perfect organization of Deepa that take care of us not only as costumers but as friends.
She has deep knowledge of places, local history, culture and she can count on a high qualified staff of guides and drivers that made us enjoy every single moment..

Dear Anna, It was a real privilege to organise your family exploration of South India, especially because of your interest in all the day to day things that we locals take for granted. I had a lot of fun in sharing all the India experiences, especially those in Pondicherry where you had passers-by stop to compliment you on your Kanchipuram silk saree and jasmine flowers - perfectly blended:) Would love to host your family again and again...

I got introduced to Ms Deepa from Shakti Holidays through a common friend back in 2017. Since then she has arranged all our family vacations. Her personal touch in each of my vacations is commendable.

She has not just done trips within India (Kerala, Pondicherry) but did an awesome job in arranging a few tours abroad (Sri Lanka, Thailand, etc). Her local knowledge of all these places is a huge added advantage, She would give us a ton of recommendations right from hotels, restaurants, places to visit, things to do and so on. And then she would arrange the trip flawlessly

So far have had excellent experience with each of my trips arranged by Shakti Holidays. She is always available to check during the trip if there are any inconveniences faced and if there is slightest problem, she would jump in and solve them. I would recommend Shakti Holidays any day over many of the highly advertised ones out there ...

The ruins of Hampi have been in our bucket list for long. As travels opened up, contacted Ms Deepa as usual to arrange the trip. She has been extremely kind to arrange all my vacations (abroad and in India) for last 5 years.

I have 2 kids under 10. Ms Deepa knows us and our preferences very well by now. Her suggestions come with several options based on our liking & budget and that has been helpful for us to decide the itinerary. Her own cultural and historical knowledge of the places is very helpful too.

Hampi trip was wonderful right from booking everything in advance to executing the 3-day itinerary on the ground. She is always there for any quick queries during the trip. Thanks to the personal touch of Ms Deepa, me and my family look forward to planning more vacations with Shakti Holidays in future.

In February myself and my husband had the most amazing experience of India thanks to Shakti Holidays. We had many flights, road trips, boat journeys and hotels as we travelled from Delhi to Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodpur, Udaipur, Mumbai and Kerala. Every aspect of this journey went like clockwork, thanks to Deepa's attention to detail and constant contact throughout our holiday. The guides and drivers she provided were meticulous in ensuring that we had access to the real India in all its diversity and that our every request was seen to. We fully appreciated our experience of India as being unique and will always treasure our memories thanks to Shakti Holidays!

Deepa of Shakti Tours was instrumental is planning and organising a fantastic tour for me and 10 others family members to Delhi Agra Ranthambore and Jaipur. We had been planning this right from July 2022 and Deepa made every little detail possible. I use to liaise with her on WhatsApp. I would recommend her services one of the best in terms of honesty, sincerity reliability.

My husband and I took a once of a lifetime trip to Delhi, India. Deepa planned our perfect trip, securing a fantastic driver and great tour guide. She was interested in what we wanted to see, tailoring the itinerary to our needs. We saw beautiful historic sites and learned so much about Indian culture from our driver and guide. We’re thankful for Deepa’s help to make our trip unforgettable!

Admiring the beauty and learning the history behind the various temples and palaces. The colour and fine detail of these structures was truly mesmerising to look at.
Future travellers should be wary of the cold temperatures during early morning and late night in January, so thermal clothing is strongly advised.

My family used Shakti Holidays for an approximately 2 week trip to various temples in Tamil Nadu. We were recommended by a friend to go with Shakti Holidays. It turned out to be the best advice we got.

Right from the first phone call, it was clear that Deepa was highly experienced and also very detail oriented. She was able to take our itinerary, make suggestions for change for both locations to visit as well as for places to stay. Once we went through this process, Deepa communicated clearly and promptly about the trip details.

The trip itself was flawless. Deepa had made all reservations at hotels, and we had an easy time going from place to place. The advance planning meant that we kept to the schedule, and were able to visit all destinations.

I strongly recommend Shakti Holidays. Deepa is a professional and is a pleasure to work with!

Amazing experience! I was visiting India after a few years, and I didn’t know where to start. Deepa and Preethi created an itinerary for me and customised it to suit my interests. They checked in with me regularly during the trip and they made sure I had a great experience. They were very responsive and approachable, and all their recommendations were amazing. Highly recommend Shakti Holidays for their personal touch and professionalism.

Shakti Holidays organised this amazing bespoke tour especially for quilters including workshops, tours of o cultural monuments, guides, amazing hotels, food and so much more. It was a completely immersive tour, all we need to do was be present. I highly recommend them if you want to enjoy a special experience and not your average run of the mill tour. They will make your holiday truly special. Deepa is a gem!
