"The journey to Argentina and Chile provided excellent learning opportunities both professional, cultural and for experiencing new and beautiful lands.  I especially enjoyed the adventures to the Patagonia glaciers and the professional exchange experiences with Chilean Psychiatrists."

The meetings and lectures were stimulating.

“Nanda Journeys provides an unhurried tour of some well-chosen highlights whilst allowing us to feel the country.


Interesting visits, well-chosen hotels, and superb local guides who were intelligent and humorous.  Not one complaint from a group of Americans. What more can one say?”

"The trip to Morocco was one of the best experiences of my life.  The team was like family, our guide was phenomenal and we saw so much and experienced such a diversity or things in on week that it felt like we'd been there a month.  I wish I could experience this trip again for the first time and wouldn't hesitate to sign up for another Nanda trip."

"I Just got back from a trip to India with Nanda Journeys and had a wonderful time. We saw some amazing sites and had knowledgeable guides join us along the trip, who were able to give us historical information and share their knowledge of just about anything with us. I also loved the fact that we got off the beaten track. I can only say, if you get a chance to travel with Nanda Journeys, do it."

"Nanda arranged a fascinating, informative, and comfortable trip to Peru for our group.  Mr. Saul Perez, the National Guide,was great in all respects. Saul arranged for another local guide who was extremely well informed and helpful for the trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Our hotel, meals, and transportation were first class in all respects. Our itinerary was highly relevant and had a great balance of learning and sight-seeing. I learned so much about the culture and the Peruvian people. This trip was a life changing experience!"

“ Nanda is an experienced travel partner to Cuba. Our guide was professional, experienced, highly educated and well trained. He was sensitive to the group's needs, made changes as needed, and became our best friend and security blanket for travel in this beautiful country. Our professional meetings and lectures were stimulating and provoked lively discussion among us. We learned about Cuban history and culture in a variety of venues and by direct contact with the Cuban people.  I would highly recommend this intensive study.”

Our Philosophy 

Our story: A word from our founder Nicola


I founded Nanda Journeys as I have long yearned to make a difference in the lives of others. I am an avid traveler who has been working in the travel industry for over 25 years, both in the US & UK. I have visited 45 countries and having conquered 6 of the 7 glorious continents (once all in the same year!) Meeting people in their daily environment has opened up a world of friendships and memories for me -  I want to share my experiences with others and facilitate creating unique experiences for them.


At Nanda Journeys, we create travel programs for the diverse, adventurous explorer united in a desire: to not only experience a destination, but to truly experience a culture and connect with its people, visiting unexplored, off-the-beaten path destinations, that provide an opportunity to give back, and make a meaningful difference in the communities they visit.  

 
So why Nanda Journeys? Nanda is a Sanskrit word that means joy and happiness. This seemed to aptly fit what I was striving to achieve in my new business for both myself, my team and of course our valued guests. 


Welcome to the Nanda Family, we can't wait to journey the world with you!

Globally yours,

Nicola Balmain
