Share Article

Long Beach resident Margaret Cook and Smithtown resident Grace Simonette have founded their own travel company that offers trips to India for Long Islanders for less than $5,000. This unique boutique travel firm is opening their doors to the public.

If you’d like to walk with the elephants, visit temples and churches, and take part in culture different from our own, the experience of a lifetime awaits you. India Journey with Grace, a unique travel company specializing in trips to the Indian subcontinent, provides 16 days with two guides for an all inclusive tour of India. Departing from New York on October 14th and returning October 30th, the trip is less than $5,000 per person, and includes airfare, meals, entry fees, international transportation, lodging, and more.

Their tagline, “let us light your way,” exemplifies the unique approach both Cook and Simonette have taken toward creating warm and engaging travel experience. Acting more as experienced hosts than travel guides, their insight and understanding of the culture will help to smooth the cultural transition many may experience while touring a new country. The 16 day experience will take guests from Delhi to Darjeeling, with many destinations and stops in between consisting of lectures, performances, workshops, and more.

“There are aspects of my career that inform my current vision of introducing people to India,” said Grace Simonette, Co-founder of India Journey with Grace. “Our itinerary, based on experience, is designed to balance the demands of big cities with the peace of the countryside. We are committed to engaging each guest in a curated exploration of Indian food, religions and culture, assisted by experts in their various fields.”

Though the organization is new, the travel experience for the two founders, Grace Simonette, and Margaret Cook, is not. Both Cook and Simonette have toured India extensively, and will provide travelers with a taste of India through tourism as well as insight and understanding of the country, its culture and its people. In addition, Cook has 18 years of experience as an international flight attendant for American Airlines, and will help to navigate guests through the challenges of international travel, time-zone management, and will help make the travel experience interesting, easy, and fun.

Looking to share their knowledge and experience with interested travelers, India Journey with Grace has opened this opportunity to the public. With limited space available, hosts Margaret and Grace promise an enlightening experience that will be both rewarding and memorable for years to come.
