Believing that a vacation begins the moment you start planning, Shah brings travelers into the trip-development process to make them feel invested in the experience and to give them final approval of every last detail. Once her clients depart, she checks in on them personally and through ground operators to make sure each hotel, tour, and restaurant is to their liking.

Excited About: In India, where Shah maintains a second residence, she’s noticed a growing number of requests for “journeys that touch the soul,” as she puts it. That could mean attending the World Sufi Spirit Festival, in Jodhpur, or indulging in ancient ayurvedic treatments at a mountainside wellness resort.
