Over the years, Art of Living has curated many and varied, handcrafted and special interest journeys for individuals and small groups –
study tours for textile conservators from the MET, New York; a weekend of lavish parties for 120 international guests coming together in Jaipur to celebrate a joint 60thbirthday; a romantic 30th anniversary celebration through Rajasthan; an Indian itinerary for couples travelling in their own private jet; a special program for buyers stocking their store; a gentle trekking program for clients with a keen passion for travelling off the well beaten tracks; a family program where parents are wishing to introduce to their children a world where not everyone is as privileged as them….
We love this work and pride ourselves on being able to specifically interpret each client’s particular interests and needs. These are never cookie-cutter programs. Rather, we create itineraries that are original, imaginative, well-paced, and meticulously detailed – based on our intimate experience, connections, and many years of research that we constantly update.
Whenever feasible, we like to start the design process with a conversation so as best to understand expectations, budgets, time-frames, personal passions and style of travel. We urge clients to commence their planning well in advance, but have also been known to pull together last minute arrangements in high season in under a few weeks.
Pricing will vary widely depending on your time of travel and particular preferences. (Prices for our escorted tours are in no way indicative of the cost of a private tour, as the former are laden with many extra inclusions).
We provide unstintingly generous and very personalised service that includes comprehensive travel notes for your trip preparation, descriptive itineraries, curated and annotated sightseeing, shopping and dining suggestions, 24/7 assistance on the ground, as well as useful bibliographies for travellers keen to read up on their chosen destination.
For DIY travellers, we provide a concierge service by phone or email that is charged at an hourly rate, so you can incorporate our expert advice into a self-designed program.
