"This yatra was a lifesaver for me traveling solo to India for the first time! I felt safe with the group and well looked after by Allison and Nancy. Sridhar’s guidance and connections were so helpful it felt like we were traveling with a local. The spiritual connections that I made while on this trip will live with me forever."

-Alissa T.

"I am immensely grateful for the unforgettable trip I took to India in January with Sridhar and the Bhaktifest team. We received sacred teachings, connected with the locals, explored enchanting temples, and indulged in extraordinary culinary delights. You learn quickly, in India, that nothing goes according to plan even with meticulous planning. But the warm hospitality of Nancy, Allison, Sri, and those we met on the way, made this journey a transformative and cherished adventure that will forever hold a special place in my heart."

-Gina M.

"My experience with Nancy, Sridhar, and Allison on my trip to India with them was awesome. They were always there to help, making my experience in India even richer and the places we had access to being with advanced beings could have never happened on my own. It was truly amazing and life-changing experience!"

-David S.

"Being with Sridhar and Nancy, it is always amazing to explore beautiful places in India. Sridhar has a wealth of experience of over 40 years of going around some of the best places of India and also meeting the most amazing personalities and Gurus."


"My yatra with Shridar and Nancy to India set my spiritual awakening ablaze.  The yatra guides were exceptionally knowledgeable and had connections to many spiritual leaders which gave the group special privileges at events we attended.  I highly recommended traveling with Bhakti Yatra for those that desire to cleanse the veil of maya and realize the atma within."
