Nirup hails from Mysore, which is a city in a Southern Indian state of Karnataka. Her husband is from Chennai, a bustling Indian metropolis. They migrated to Australia in 1997 and have been avid travellers. It is their love of travel which has motivated them to offer personalised tours of the southern states of India. Nirup accompanies travellers throughout their trip, arranging accomodation, meals and sightseeing. Her interest in Indian history and her knowledge of Hindu mythology is invaluable,as she can explain for example, the significance of ‘pooja’ or prayers in a temple or the protocol at a Hindu temple. She is aiming to showcase the day to day life of locals, by mingling with them and partaking in their activities.
If you have dreamt of visiting India, but were hesitant because of language barriers or a lack of familiarity, Nirup’s cultural tours of India is a perfect place to start. The company is run by husband and wife duo, who are both former residents of India and are both professional chefs.
