ABOUT PADDY SINGH

 

Justine Hardy, writer & presenter writes about Paddy :-

In a country as raw and intense as India a travel agent is not enough. You need someone who is going to explain, understand and make you laugh when the vividness of India gets too much. Paddy is unusual in so many ways but his great trump card for travelers is that he somehow manages to open every door in India. You just have to ask and he makes it happen whether you have a penchant for fleece covered hot water bottles on trek or want to have a birthday party in a Mogul garden. Paddy's India is the real India not the curry and camel variety that is so often pushed at us. He and his tem make everything possible from the high passes of the Himalayas to the hot, white beaches of the deep south.

 

Patricia Wadley, Editor abroad, UK & Australia, of the POLO Magazine, offer a 3 week tour of India writes:-

 

"Paddy's Trek & Tours offers the tourist an opportunity to experience India on a highly personal and unique level - always delivering more than the average visitor would expect. This is due to Paddy ,s comprehensive local knowledge and widely respected reputation in the Indian hospitality industry. On the spur of the moment you may find yourself invited to a private party or wedding, taking tea with the Indian royalty or watching an athletics carnival at one of India's poshest public schools 

 

Despite its vast population, India is actually a small town when it comes to 'who knows who' - and Paddy's background is a key factor in the high regard in which he is held. It's these connections which give Paddy's Company the advantage over other travel operators. Every tourist looks for an unique experience they can reflect on and boast about on their return. It's a pretty safe bet that all of paddy's client will have more to write home about."
