Causer has spent the past decade designing trips to the Indian subcontinent. When working with food lovers, Causer can pack an itinerary with both market meals and fine dining, while walking enthusiasts might combine a few days exploring the city of Kolkata before embarking on a four-night village-to-village trek in the Sikkim region of the Himalayan foothills.

"I recently planned a unique walking experience in Sikkim, operated by Shakti Village Walks. The walking tour itself was four nights through the Pelling region, north of Darjeeling. Here the guests can enjoy sublime scenery of the Himalayans as they traverse from Hatti Dunga to Rhadu Kandu villages. The stays are within Sikkimese traditional houses," Causer says. "I recommend combining this journey with the superb Calcutta (Kolkata) Walks programs discovering the hustle and bustle of the city. You can then conclude your stay at the Glenburn Tea Estate in Darjeeling for rest, relaxation, and a quintessential colonial era hill station experience. This is the ultimate way to truly discover India's northeast!"

Still, he can design a classic India itinerary — for one couple's blowout celebration, he planned an epic 39-day journey that took in Mumbai, Rajasthan, Bangalore, and Goa, with stays in the best hotels, like the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, in Mumbai, and Amanbagh, in Rajasthan.

"Niall Causer organized our trip to Southern India and we were beyond thrilled with the amazing itinerary he put together. We talked in advance with him about our interests which include archaeology, architecture, and wildlife—and his itinerary was superb. He booked us into the best rooms in some of the best hotels.

Beyond the sheer luxury of staying at fabulous places and having our own driver, Niall really knows India. He planned side trips and adventures. For example, we took an old steam train from the hill station of Ooty down to the hot plains, which was a real journey into the colonial past of India, and Nialla also arranged for us to meet an Indigenous tribal family. At another point, he worked the Nagarhole National Park into our trip, where we loved the ecologically senstivite accomodations—and we saw not one, but two tigers! I highly recommend Niall Causer to any clients looking for thoughtful, carefully planned, luxury travel that is sensitive to the cultural traditions of India." - Karen N.
