Our Story

I am accompanying Bob and Esther to the Shiva temple in Kanchipuram. Bob removes his footwear, steps into the Mandapa. “This vibration!!  One cannot experience it through visuals”, he remarks, as he takes in the smells and sounds around him.

Lisa is travelling with us in Kutch to attend a day long embroidery workshop.  Her instructor is a smiling Rebari lady. Both of them don’t know each other’s language, but succeed in communicating well enough to make the day productive. So much laughter & camaraderie during the learning process .

Shakti Holidays has arranged several of our family vacations. Extremely professional, courteous and transparent!! All of our family and extended family vacations have been thoroughly enjoyable.. highly recommended !!!

Prasanna, Chennai

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. 

Vanita, Sydney

We really appreciated the time and effort you put in to planning our trip. It was very kind of you to check in with us as we moved from place to place. Your services will be enthusiastically  recommended to all our friends who are planning to come your way.
