“No matter how many books you read to prepare yourself for a tour of India, the cultural shock and awe can be overwhelming. You need a tour expert like Loretta Pinto to help make your visit exceptional. Loretta provides unique adventures, comfortable living spaces and courteous, dependable service throughout the entire trip. Each tour has exceeded the expectations of our multigenerational groups.”


Ranjanaa Devi, Director for Asian Arts & Culture Programs, University of Massachusetts

“As the owner of a California-based travel company specializing in textile and festival tours, I wouldn't have anyone but Loretta Pinto organize my India trips! She has so far developed and coordinated four fascinating tours of India for my groups. Drawing upon her long and varied experience in the business, Loretta is able to combine my parameters for travel with my clients' interests and demands into the best possible exotic experiences. She replies quickly to my questions and is very thorough in making sure I'm satisfied with the final itineraries and costs. Because of her empathetic and enthusiastic personality, I believe she genuinely cares about me and my success in the tour business and is willing to work tirelessly to ensure that. Thank you, Loretta!”


Cynthia LeCount Samake, Behind the Scenes Adventures

“Loretta, in all the trips I have taken to India, and there are many, the recent tour you arranged for me and my clients is one I will remember for a long time. As we traveled through northern and southern India, not only to meet with various suppliers and factories, but also to see the many landmarks of India, this customized, personal tour for me and my associates was the perfect way to conduct business with them. I look forward to working with you on future tours."


Berk Fernandez, Managing Director, UNA Worldwide

“Please accept our congratulations for the excellent organization of all tours, the punctuality of the dispatch on each day, the fast action to solve the challenges, the prompt communication prior and during the tours. The guide's performance was very good and much appreciated. The presence of one local escort per bus and plenty of coordinators checking each key point during every tour was absolutely helpful to keep the operation under control. We really thank you for the attention and the care paid towards our guests and the great cooperation with the ship's staff. Guests returning from the Taj Mahal tour were very impressed with the organization of the tour, the beautiful hotel's accommodations, the adventure on the train and on the rickshaw. The guides and the escorts did a great job handling such a large group of guests. Please thank all your personnel on our behalf for the great job done and the kind assistance."
