Want to come to India but don't know quite where to start?

India is a massive country with so much to see. You want to see the popular places, the off-beat ones too and don't want to miss anything. But you only have limited days to spend there. The internet is bursting with so much information about each destination and it's all so tempting and confusing. What to see and what to give a miss is a dilemma that travelers face all the time, and you don't want to regret any decisions later.

This where Jasmine Trails helps you decide exactly where to go and what to see in India. As an India travel consultant I specialize in customizing your travels based on what YOU want your holiday to be like. Heritage, wildlife, adventure, wellness, spirituality, festivals...there is so much that India offers. I will work with you to shortlist places to see and things to do so you can get the most value for your time in India.

This means you get to EXPERIENCE India, not just see it. I recommend and offer authentic experiences that will bring you closer to India, its people, its cuisines, its daily life and ofcourse its history and sights. So, no more uncertainty, only fantastic unforgettable memories.

You can depend on my expert advice and first-hand experience to offer you personalized service!

Why travel to India with me

Hi, I am Bindu Lall. I am a travel consultant and tour guide for foreign travelers to India and have recently founded Jasmine Trails. With industry experience of 20 years in tour operations, sales and guiding, it was a natural progression for me to offer personalized consultancy to travelers who wanted to come to India but were unsure of whom to go to get the best advice. Word of mouth references from guests led many more travelers to me for assistance in designing and booking their tours through India. So many have returned to India again and again and have built a lifelong bond with me and India.

Years of traveling the length and breath of the country means I can offer tried and tested experiences with confidence. Every trip is custom-designed to suit your needs, comfort, budget and interests. I love ensuring that your experience of India is perfect from the day you start planning your trip and not just when you arrive here. I can say with pride and confidence that when you travel with me you will not feel like a tourist but like a personal guest.

Jasmine Trails is not a tour operator but a personalized travel consultancy. So while Jasmine Trails works with you to design a tour perfectly suited for you, we will book it through one of the few top tour operators based in Delhi, with whom we collaborate and work closely. In this way you get the best of advice and on-ground support during your trip. However, this does NOT mean you pay more for anything. We assure you competitive prices, best services and value for money.

From the beginning to the end of your journey, Jasmine Trails remains your trusted one-point contact.

Jasmine Trails specializes in designing and booking tours in India that are especially customized for each traveler. I believe that every single day that you spend in India should be special, doing what is of interest to you and not a “one size fits all” itinerary that travel agents often prescribe.

I also recommend off-beat destinations and experiences so that India can be more than just monuments and popular tourist circuits.

Whether you are a solo traveler, a couple on honeymoon, a family with kids or a small group of friends Jasmine Trails promises you a journey of a lifetime.

Jasmine Trails Travel Management and Guide Services

The best planned tours can go downhill in the company of a less-than-adequate guide or trip leader. That is why Jasmine Trails engages the best trip leaders/tour guides in India. As an experienced trip leader and guide, I know how critical it is for travelers to get correct information, honest guidance and the sense of security. A great personality and sense of humour make it even better.

Destination weddings

Ride in on elephants with pomp and splendour and marry like royalty in the palaces of erstwhile Maharajas.  Or perhaps a romantic ceremony under a starry night sky in the desert is more your style. Go spiritual with a wedding on the banks of the holy Ganges with the chanting of mantras that invite well-being and happiness. There are many unique themes and locations to have a memorable special day, not just for you both but for your guests too.
