‘’The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page ‘’ – Saint Augustine
Hello, my name is Neelima and welcome to my webpage. I hail from India – the land of vibrant colors, street food, history and beautiful festivals! Today Dubai is a place I call my home and feels like we are on a constant vacation here. I live here with my husband and my son since 2014.
Travel is my passion , and that has taken me places from as remote as The Great Barrier Reef in Australia to leading metropolises like Singapore and Hong Kong. My travels have taken me from a small beach town in Wales to a volcano top in Santorini, from the Oxford street of London to the Bangla road of Phuket, from the luxurious Viilas in Greece, from the lap of luxury in Atlantis to a tree house in a wild life park or a houseboat of Kerala and from a casino in Goa to deserts in Rajasthan. My son's favourite has been our Safari Holiday in Kenya to see the great Wildebeest migration. And our last holiday was a Royal Caribbean cruise to the Baltics
It's my time to turn my pleasure into my business. Having worked for more than a decade for the world’s leading airline British Airways and some renowned Travel agencies, it has only increased my appetite for travel and given me a wealth of knowledge about the industry.
I am glad to be a part of Travel Counsellors, an award winning and dynamic travel company. It provides me with the best technology and tools to do my work. It is also reassuring to know that every holiday booked through me is covered by Travel Counsellors financial protection.
Your ideal holiday destination vary from beach vacations to mountain adventures to following a historical trail. Whatever helps you settle in best and find you comfort spot the fastest, I bet will be able to find you!

Being a Dubai resident I am surely lucky to live in a country where you feel like you are on a constant vacation. There are always some developments to keep this city on the top of the list of destinations. I always recommend to my clients lots of free time while planning their Holiday in Dubai and lots of ideas to spend their time on fun things which are free ….and who does not like that ! Here is my fun and quirky list of things which are not only free but it’s lot fun too ! 1. Picnic in the Park (During October...

The Greek isles are a summer paradise and that’s what I had read and heard from every one! However, I was curious to explore this beauty during spring because of two reasons – one my son’s (who is 6 years old) school spring break and secondly to avoid the crowded islands. And the wait was over when we actually arrived to Santorini via a fast ferry (SeaJet) from Mykonos (another Greek island) to this pearl of the Aegean –Santorini ! (did you that the whole complex of Santorini is still an active volcano). Everywhere I looked was a picture perfect moment,...

Beneath the dust and chaos Bangkok is packed with things to do and places to see. We loved this vibrant and urban big city with all its life, delicious street food, green and lush parks, amazing shopping and some of the biggest markets in the world! It’s a place full of choices for hotels and we chose to stay at Centara Water Gate right in the center of the town. Great hotel and value for money but no swimming pool – but we did not need any with our day full of activities and late evenings! There are magnificent temples everywhere, are...

Fascinating Coral Reefs of Cairns One of the world’s most remarkable natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef. Stunning natural scenery that everyone should experience! I have wonderful memories of our trip to Cairns almost a decade ago and I think its time to re visit this gorgeous place and home to my best buddy (well that’s one more reason to visit Australia soon!) When you visit Australia you can’t miss Sydney, besides visiting my friend in Sydney there were more reasons to visit this city along with our 3 day trip to Cairns. We chose January and it turned out to be a...

We recently went on a short trip to Serbia. Ms. Neelima Tandon from Travel Counsellors had organized the whole trip for us right from visa, flight, hotel stay and tours. She had guided us properly which helped us to select the right destination. She was always reachable for any queries we had. All the arrangements were perfect and she also had arranged for a very good guide Stefan for our tour around Serbia. We had a beautiful stay in Serbia. We recommend her for all who want a hassle free holiday. Thank you very much Neelima:)

I've had a wonderful opportunity to liaise with Neelima and I need to put it down that she was extremely helpful! My family, along with a couple of other friends had a beautiful package that Neelima offered us and she went the extra mile to ensure we got the best benefits. We were so happy with the staycation package and would definitely go with her again. My experience is here - words are not enough, still a testimonial here - https://euphoricallysree.wordpress.com/2021/01/04/a-quiet-staycation-in-dubai/ Thanks Neelima!

We had contacted Neelima to help us plan our honeymoon on a very short notice and in no time she came up with the detailed plan and itinerary to help us plan our trip without any hassle. Also, she was constantly in touch with us to help us for our visa application by preparing all the documentations and checklist to make sure we don't forget any necessary document. After all the bookings were done including the flight tickets, we had to reschedule our trip due to our leave plan but Neelima took care of that as well without any issue and planned the complete itinerary again in no time. And finally all the stays and flights booked, were very well planned taking in consideration our time and budget constraints. So, all in all it was a very well planned and the most memorable trip for us, the way honeymoons are meant to be. Our sincere thanks again to you Neelima. We really appreciate all your efforts. Vikas & Sakshi

Hello, It was lovely working with Neelima for our Eastern Europe trip. She had tons of great hotel options which would suit our taste and needs and was very co-operative whenever we wanted to make a few changes here and there. We had a hassle free experience with all our flights + hotel checkin-checkouts. The bundle of neatly printed tickets / hotel vouchers / tour vouchers...all neatly arranged and stapled in the order was just beyond being handy ! And yeah..it was heart warming to see the advance online check-ins she would do for us on before all our flights; even before we opened our eyes in the morning ! :) Thanks a ton Neelima and I look forward to taking many more holidays through you ! Cheers, Rupali

Greece trip- 2017 We were truly happy and impressed with the package Neelima put together for our Greece trip!! The whole itenary was very planned out in detail keeping our specific needs in mind.She gave us a lot of tips and lists of places to visit which really came in handy as it was our first ever trip to Greece.The hotels that she recommended were all centrally located which is a very important to us as we have two children aged 5 and 8. She was always willing to help us out with minor changes and was very proactive. We would definately recommend her to our friends and would love to book our next holiday with her! True depiction of service with a smile!
