Born in India, Tara Gupta was great! She arranged all sorts of special things for me. I especially enjoyed meeting her cousin Veena who took me shopping and to dinner. We had a great time!

If you want a real insider’s view on India, you should absolutely sign up with a tour with India by Design. As you travel to each destination, you learn so much about India’s culture, history, and customs which make you understand so much more what this country is all about.  Tara, the business owner, will set up unique experiences that are difficult to come by when you travel with a larger group.  She has excellent tour guides at each destination who are very knowledgeable about the sights that they are sharing with you. She also knows which restaurants that are safe to patronize so that no one falls ill. I have fantastic memories of my journey to India and I would not hesitate to recommend any of their tours.

India by Design and Tara took a large group of us throughout India (Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi). Despite the complexity of the trip and unpredictable nature of India everything went extremely well. Tara and her team are professional, detailed orientated, knowledgeable and also fun. I would highly recommend using India by Design for your travel needs.

India by Design and Tara Gupta are absolutely the best! Tara guided my husband and I on a 15 day tour through amazing spots not only in India but Bhutan as well. Tara is an extremely knowledgeable tour guide and is able to describe in great detail the customs, culture and history behind the sites we saw. She also surrounded herself with expert staff and guides that made our trip exceptional. And I need to mention that she is fun to be around and has an excellent sense of humor. We got along fantastically well over this time and we were sad to have to say goodbye. it is important to mention that my husband and I are both Deaf, so we required a little extra time and effort to make sure we understood everything. Tara did this without hesitation and always with a smile. If you are considering a trip with her team, you have our full 100% approval!

Tara helped our company with a last-minute party that we put together for partners in Agra – and the event was terrific. Given our location in the US and our lack of familiarity with the area, we couldn’t have done it without Tara! She was very professional and followed-up throughout every stage of the event. I’d definitely recommend Tara!

India by Design did a phenomenal job with my trip to Northern India. The office employees, drivers and guides took all worries away and were very professional, hands-on, attentive and caring. My entire trip was flawless proving that with the right company a trip to India (a country where anything can happen) can be fun, fascinating, safe and enjoyable. Congrats Tara and India by Design, you’ve got my business.

My sincere thanks to Tara Gupta and her India-By-Design (IDB) team for a tremendous adventure in India and Bhutan.

I started my adventure in late October in Delhi for several days, and then went on to Agra.  The local IBD guides in both cities were amazing with their depth of knowledge and patience with me (I asked a LOT of questions).  Lalit, my driver in India, was incredible; nerves of steel and totally unflappable in traffic like I’ve never seen anywhere else in the world.  And, with Tara participating in much of my sightseeing in Delhi, I know I got an “insider’s” view of her hometown.

It was then on to Bhutan for twelve days of festivals and spectacular sightseeing.  Our guide, Tsring, shared her passion and exceptional knowledge of her country and the Buddhist religion.  And, our driver, Tsongay, was terrific.

I knew from the beginning and throughout the entire three weeks I traveled with Tara and the rest of her team that I was in excellent hands, that all details had been checked and double-checked, and that I had absolutely nothing to worry about other than to enjoy all the wonders they showed me in both countries.

I whole-heartedly endorse Tara Gupta and India-By-Design as the go-to source for expertly planned, personalized, knowledgeable, friendly, travel services of exceptional value.

I was privileged to accompany Tara Gupta; India by Design; on her trip to explore Gujarat.  It was truly a memorable experience and one I hope to be able to repeat in the future. One of the things I was impressed with was how painstakingly Tara prepares her clients for their adventure; she wants everyone prepared so they are able enjoy all aspects of the experience that is India. In our case this included the culture, history, some politics and the crafts we would be seeing-since this was a trip to explore the artists who are keeping the generations old traditions of painting, embroidery, silversmith and textiles alive.
I arrived in Delhi a day before my travel companions. Tara arranged a private transfer to my hotel. And after I was settled, she then picked me up to go shopping at one of the many markets in the city. The next day was my private tour of Delhi  (what a hoot to see elephants, camels and water buffalo on the streets of a major world capital), The following day was spent in Agra for the required day trip to the Taj Mahal because, let’s face it, if you are within striking distance of this famous site you owe it to yourself to go.
Before departing for Gujarat, we all enjoyed a private appointment with Tara’s tailor (where else does the tailor come to you) to order some custom clothes made.
Tara was with us throughout the trip, Because of her knowledge and experience, we safely ate and specific local eateries and sampled produce unique to the area. We also had our own private driver and guide who were so amazing that we could sit back and relax as we traveled through unique landscapes, visited palaces, partook of a game drive in one of India’s game reserves and immersed ourselves in all things India.
I recommend Tara and her services to anyone ready for the amazing experience that is India.
