Praise from Nat Hab travelers:

J. Popatia
"We have always had outstanding Expedition Leaders in our previous five trips with Nat Hab, and Aditya met our expectations 100%. He was very friendly, solicitous and approachable. He was always helpful, looking out for our needs at all times. When he realized some of us were not up to snuff in photography, he went out of his way to spend an afternoon giving individual lessons in how to get the best pictures with our cameras. Above all, he was a very knowledgeable naturalist, which made the trip to the tiger reserve all the more interesting. Many kudos to him."

J. Alderfer
"Adi is an outstanding guy. He is so knowledgeable and worked very hard to make sure we had an amazing trip?—and we did! Since he is a seasoned photographer, he helped me set my camera on the best settings for excellent pictures. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him!"

O. Sarti
"Aditya was wonderful, patient and went out of his way to make sure things went well. He communicated his love for his country and its animals with us brilliantly. He explained many interesting things about present-day India and its culture."

C. Horner
"Adi did everything he could to assist us in having a terrific time. His naturalist insights were most valuable. He ensured our accommodations and meals were excellent. He was sensitive to our health needs. He was orderly and friendly. He did an A+ job!"

C. Nogy
"Adi's leadership was superb! He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and provided helpful education about existing threats and conservation efforts unique to Bengal tigers. Adi was also very courteous and professional throughout the journey. He anticipated and fulfilled every need of each traveler. His guidance absolutely added to the experience. Well done!"
 
L. Haehnle
"Aditya made this taste of India a fascinating adventure. His knowledge, expertise and communication provided such insight into the culture, the people, the transportation modes and maximizing our Ranthambore National Park experience."

S. Houston
"Aditya was, by far, the best guide we have ever had. I admired his commitment to conservation."

E. Freudenburg 
"Traveling with Aditya in both Satpura and Ranthambore National Park was like traveling with a friend in India. He was so enthusiastic about finding wildlife for me to photograph, that he and our Satpura naturalist took me on an expedition 25 miles into the park where we discovered a male tiger that no one had ever seen. Aditya is an exceptional Nat Hab guide."

N. Brown
"You could never find a better Expedition Leader than Aditya. He exhibits a very rare combination of knowledge, organizational ability and a keen insight into how to treat people. He was consistently funny, helpful, encouraging and adept at solving even the smallest problem. Nat Hab is very fortunate to have someone of Aditya's ability to serve as a company representative for this particular trip. He was, in short, outstanding."

B. Berger
"Aditya was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and nature but also very interesting as far as educating us on Indian culture and history. His personality blended all the members of the group together. He is a very caring person and professional also. He was always ready to help—never flustered, angry or impatient. But the most important thing was that you could see he loves what he is doing—being with different kinds of people in nature and showing them his beautiful country of India!"

R. Anderson
"Aditya was extremely knowledgeable and committed, as well as solicitous towards every group member. He is a wonderful guide."

J. Tomlinson 
"Aditya was above and beyond. He was able to read every one of us, knowing our needs and was always one step ahead. He was so knowledgeable, had a great speaking voice, always had a smile, had a sense of humor and was a pleasure to have as our guide."

M. Greenfield
"Aditya should be your trainer for all guides. There was nothing that he didn't pay special attention to, including staying up most of the night to secure good airplane seats for our trip past Everest. It was a diverse group and he handled variations in ability and interest with grace and humor. We have always had good leaders, but none of this caliber."

K. Johnson
"Aditya was so thoughtful, attentive and a pleasure to be around. It was like being with a friend. I would definitely like to participate in an adventure with him again someday."
