If it’s your first time to India, Bealby can hook you up with reservations at grand palace hotels and tickets to popular tourist events like the Saffron Festival in Kashmir. But if it’s a more authentic cultural experience that you seek, the former journalist can give you a taste of the country’s more hidden side. Want to wind down at a private-house hotel? Befriend local artisans? Partake in a cooking class? Bealby can make arrangements for these experiences, and many more. And once you’ve visited the country’s more popular destinations — Agra, Jaipur, Delhi, and Mumbai — allow him to introduce you to under-the-radar locales, like the Andaman Islands and the Nubra Valley, a remote region with rugged mountains and piedmont glaciers. Pakistan is another one of Bealby’s specialties, if you’re considering exploring even further afield.
