About the Guide

"I'm a woman entrepreneur from Austria and run a resort in Goa, India. I have rarely followed the crowd, have always lived curiously and am unafraid to travel alone. But when the time came for me to explore India, I wanted someone else to put together a fascinating itinerary and look after the logistics for me so that I could totally let my hair down and have fun.

It was a huge stroke of good fortune that I found out about Sange Tsering - The Holiday Scout. Highly knowledgeable about the natural, historical and cultural treasures of Northeast India, well organized and committed to customer satisfaction in his approach, Sange is more than a qualified travel guide.

Given his contagious enthusiasm for discovery, Sange encouraged me to try everything and what started out as a tour quickly became a glorious pursuit of new life experiences which we found and swallowed whole for eleven straight days! Northeast India is a truly mesmerizing region, and I will surely return to travel with The Holiday Scout - the guide makes all the difference."
