Hi! I am Chintamani. I operate Boutique India Tours and deliver inspiring travelling experiences in one of the world's greatest destinations – India, the country where I was born, grew up, am in love with and discovered step by step, inch by inch, and corner by corner.

I come from a family of scholars in the eastern province of Odisha in India. With two Masters degrees and a Doctorate, I served as a law professor for 25 years in Kolkata before moving to New Zealand in 2001. While I loved sharing knowledge with, and influencing the lives of, young adult students, the passion to travel and explore compelled me to move to this gorgeous country. A New Zealand citizen, I live in Tauranga with my family and work for the New Zealand government in a senior position, simultaneously operating Boutique India Tours.

Apart from being a traveller and adventurer, I am a practising violinist with a passion for engaging in scholarly work and learning new languages. I can speak Odiya, Hindi, Bengali, Sanskrit, and English, and am currently learning Te Reo Maori – a beautiful language spoken by the Maori people, the indigenous population of New Zealand.

I have travelled to different countries, but India's magic continues to amaze me in new ways every time I travel around this fascinating country. To introduce my New Zealand friends to this gloriously beautiful country, I started taking groups of people on exciting, enriching itineraries of India. These extraordinary journeys not only further ignited my desire for adventure, but also helped me earn appreciation from group members. Some of them explained their experience as "exceeded all expectations," while there were others who encouraged me to do this professionally, and this led to the birth of Boutique India Tours.

Boutique India Tours brings you to one of the most of beguiling travel destinations in the world—India. Using my local knowledge and experience, I will make sure that your trip will be fun, exciting, & enriching.

Together, you and I can design an itinerary that is more personal, more rewarding, and more fun for you and your family/friends.

Personalised Service and Hospitality from the moment you land into India to the time of departure are the hallmarks of my service. The purpose is to create a delightful experience that you will cherish for life.

At Boutique India Tours, I use my local knowledge and experience to serve the needs of travellers who desire an unforgettable experience of exploring India.
