Arun is the man I turn to for independent travel arrangements in Asia. Through him I've had 5 trips to India in the past 4 years that included Sikkim, 2 trips to northern India visiting Dharamshala, Ladakh, and Srinagar, and 2 visits to Delhi. He also got my wife and I into Tibet for a 9 day trip at a time when other foreigners were being turned away. I just let Arun know what I want to do, and everything is easily arranged at a reasonable cost. It never matters to him whether the trip is long or short. His network of guides and agents in Asia are always friendly and competent, and some have become like personal friends. Since Arun is always ready to help, I'm already planning my next trip.
