“I loved the trip, wonderful itinerary, local guides, care, transport, hospitality and the exquisite attention to each passenger! Chörten's presence is wonderful! I want it to continue as it is. Traveling with Chörten is an experience in all physical and spiritual senses. Fun and learning! It's the second time I've had this opportunity. Both were unforgettable! I only have one word: Gratitude.”

“Chörten's service was extremely careful with all the details, from boarding to disembarkation. Chörten is very knowledgeable about the regions visited. The trip was one of deep learning with Chörten's teachings and experience throughout the trip. Every detail of the trip was planned and executed with great care and attention. I highly recommend!”

“I have lived with my family in India for many years and from time to time my wife with our 2 children need to go to Brazil to renew their visas to India. This is usually a manageable task as we already have a lot of experience. But, on his recent trip to Brazil during Covid, from December 2021 to March 2022, it was very difficult. Constantly changing rules and requirements and also on the way back my wife and daughter tested positive for Covid just before their scheduled flight back to India.
This was a very difficult situation, and without Chörten's incredibly dedicated support, it could easily have become a nightmare. Words cannot express my gratitude for the tireless support of Chörten who stretched us out literally day and night until my wife and children could finally return to India after their flight was rescheduled 3 times.
Chörten's support and kindness has been excellent in every way, and all I can say now is: Thank you, Chörten, with all my heart! May God bless you for the love and support he has shown us.
I sincerely recommend Chörten – who also has a deep knowledge of the cultures of India, Nepal and Bhutan – to anyone who is planning to travel to these countries and who needs support in organizing the trip or a guide who understands the culture during their journey.
One more thing I would like to share: even if you just need a very kind human being to talk to, I would highly recommend Chörten as it would be a perfect choice for that too.
Thanks again Chörten, hope we can welcome you to India soon _/\_
OM”

“Chörten has a professionalism that always reveals great lightness, delicacy, seriousness and knowledge! I have followed his work closely for almost a decade, and I am continually amazed at the genuineness and dedication revealed in it. I have lived in India for over 16 years and traveling between Brazil and India is part of my routine. In these countless experiences, traveling alone, accompanied, with my baby, with my children, with other children without the presence of parents, with groups and also in this time of pandemic, the unforeseen are almost certain in these long journeys and nothing better than being able to count with someone who gives us confidence. I feel extremely blessed to have as a great friend at Chörten, whenever I needed professional guidance he was immediately available to contribute, punctually doing what was necessary for the flow of the trip!
Chörten's readiness to carry out detailed research in unusual and delicate cases, such as in the midst of the covid pandemic, is admirable, given the numerous rules that are constantly changing. I still have in my mind the image of Chörten with two phones in hand, at dawn, trying to talk directly to the airline because of mismatched information and flight changes. In the end, the necessary changes were processed in the best way and the trip went very well.
I would certainly recommend Chörten and the range of unique jobs the company offers both for first-time travelers and for those who already have some experience. The organization, comfort and harmony of the trip will undoubtedly be guaranteed!

“Organization and support given throughout the trip: essential and very punctual. Chörten surprised me with all the attention given, when I thought about doing this trip alone it was a mix of emotion and anxiety but with all the help everything went very safely and easy to deal with! I just have to thank Chörten, who ends up doing much more than he needs to.”

“The services, assistance and dedication, super care at all times during the trip. Very important in health and safety matters. The exchange of experiences!!!! I just imagine the situations in which I could have been involved if I didn't have this support. I consider that the service offered by Chörten is possibly the most complete, efficient and attentive there is. Thanks for all the support, especially involving health and safety issues. It is excellent."

 

Yasmine Maggi (Porto Alegre)

Independent Organization Trip to India in Feb 2019

“The whole trip fully met our expectations. Although the places were known, the experiences are always unique. As for Chörten's services, they were and always are impeccable. The choice of independent travel exceeded our expectations. We feel fully cared for, oriented. Which is very important for initial trips (which is not our case) and for women. Tips on local culture, “health care”, maps, suggestions… everything was very important. Even when we choose to do other programs. The travel tips have also served to guide us in other missions we carry out in Brazil and other countries. Another important aspect for us is respect for our choices, we are a spiritual community and because of this we have our own rhythm, time and this was well understood.
Chörten is more than a travel company. It performs a humanitarian service in that it connects people and worlds that are very special and sometimes very different from each other. To immerse yourself in such ancient cultures requires preparation, respect and understanding, something the team transmits with great wisdom and responsibility. We made our sixth trip with Chörten, each in a different format (independent, group...). In all of them the care was the same. The mark of competence, kindness and sensitivity in guiding people and groups with unique needs was present in each one. The encounters with India, Nepal and Chörten are equal in their charm!”

“Chörten's personalized travel organization, flexibility to overcome difficulties in unexpected situations, super preparation and experience, honesty in commitments, are the great differences of this trip prepared to be something special, unforgettable and surprising.”

 

Guilherme von Ungern Sternberg (Ilhabela)

Travel to India and Nepal with Expert Accompaniment in Oct 2018

“We are travelers with some experience and, so to speak, loyal to our travel agent (personal friend). However, when I told her that I intended to travel to Bhutan, she promptly said that she could organize a trip, however, it would be better for us to look for a specialized operator in this destination as it is full of peculiarities.
My mother, through internet searches and conversations with friends, had already learned about Chörten and had good references. Thus, we had the happy idea of ​​contacting Guilherme. An additional factor was time: from the first contact to the date of shipment, the deadline was less than one month.
The organization of the trip deserves to be highlighted! Everything was organized in a customized way to meet the expectations we had (incidentally, quite different from those of the traditional traveler to these destinations!). It also included an extremely detailed briefing which, at first glance for those who already have some experience in 'different' travel, seemed unnecessary. Big mistake! Subjects such as appropriate clothing, care with food, customs (unique) of the local inhabitants, among other peculiarities, were addressed and that made a total difference for the trip to be a success!” Full feedback: here

“Traveling to India with Chörten was one of the best experiences of my life. In addition to making new friends, this trip allowed us to live unforgettable moments, overcome barriers and make dreams come true. And this was only possible because we were able to count on the support and support of incredible people from the specialist and Chörten who were with us full time in a personalized, professional and very loving way. Here's a tip for those who want to travel there: 'You'll never be alone in India with Chorten'. Gratitude!"

“Attention from the first contact to send details of the script and care for each member of the group. Not to mention the expert's knowledge and Chörten's guidance, which made the trip even more special. In addition to being specialized in India, the script was amazing. With wonderful places. In addition to having the opportunity to get out of tourist destinations, socialize with locals and learn a lot at every moment. It was the differential of itineraries, small groups and the experience in India that made me choose Chörten. Getting to know India was one of my dreams. And traveling through these lands through art was an experience that I will take with me forever. For sure a unique experience and very well organized by Chörten. I will definitely consider you for new trips out there 🙂 “

The business-client relationship was as personalized as possible! You really feel taken care of! Thank you all for the great trip!”

“Traveling with Chörten has been a huge satisfaction. We were in India and Nepal and what we most appreciated was the possibility of building our own itinerary in detail, taking into account our interests and personal conditions. Our interest is in trips that contemplate the local culture, different religious expressions and moments of pilgrimage. Every moment of our itinerary was thought of in common and monitored throughout the trip. E-mail and telephone support are a differential in those moments of doubt and mediation with local teams. Travel tips are wonderful, useful and fun, don't forget to read! The Morada da Paz community thanks the team for their competence and affection! Namaste!!! Rain of Light!!! ComPaz"

“My deep gratitude to Chörten. Unparalleled experience with dear friends. Walking with Chörten through this unimaginable world of Nepal and Bhutan and getting to know it with the wealth of details and affection with which the team presented us is a unique opportunity for life, in which so many truths become relativized and life begins to follow even more beautiful.”

“I traveled for the second time with Chörten. The first time it was a group trip and this time a solo trip. The Chörten team is very special, I received all the help I needed in choosing the flights, itinerary, alternative tours, accommodation… Everything according to what I was looking for! The trip is programmed according to your goals! All with a lot of patience to answer questions, resolve unforeseen events and take care of us on the other side of the world! I recommend!"
“In 2010 we made a beautiful pilgrimage. I believe we were the first group of Brazilians to visit so many sacred places. Passing through places known as Bodhgaya and also through special corners, where access is more difficult, such as Sankisa.
Even today I close my eyes and feel the emotions and experiences of such a rich journey vibrating in my heart. The team acts as guardian angels, guiding and opening the way.”

The virtual and personal accompaniment of Chörten's management provided me with complete security throughout the course of this sweet, exciting and magical journey. I was happy to contribute at least to the social and environmental projects that Chörten seeks to associate itself with. Gratitude!"

“What I liked the most was the affection, welcome and security of traveling with Chörten. You are involved in a web of care that you just have to enjoy and enjoy. So much so that I start saving din din for the next trip with Chörten. In this I will take my son Guilherme and maybe friends!!!
It's great to be alone as I have been, with freedom and feeling safe in transfers and check-ins, especially. In each airport or city, everyone was careful so that NOTHING went wrong, and I felt the need to have this security in all of them. Friends asked me about the fear of walking alone. I AFFIRM that this feeling I didn't have!!!! I was with two scouts, Guilherme and Sarah, friends of the heart!!!
For the second time I write in the clouds THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! A big hug, kisses with love"

“This was my second trip to India and I was surprised by the quality of the hotels, the teams of guides and local support, besides the care that each one of us received from Guilherme and the leader of this group, Tiffani, throughout the journey.
I was very grateful that the itinerary provided visits to very special places, with time to admire, contemplate and often meditate. That is, being present and enjoying each experience intensely.
When I decided to make this trip and spend my birthday with a group of 'strangers', confidence pulsed inside me. But my expectations were all exceeded, and I am immensely grateful to the Chörten team, in the person of Sarah, and to each of my new and dear fellow travelers – the memory of those days remains in my heart.”

“In 2013 I offered the first Art Trip organized and assisted by Chörten with an eye for so many details, even more so in countries like India, which really means knowing how to dance in chaos. We made a great partnership and other beautiful groups formed for the following years. As an artist and with a few years of living in India, I was able to develop with Chörten the accompaniment of groups that want to experience Asia for real, get “wet” in the waters of the Ganges, ride a rikshaw (tuk-tuk), be welcomed in workshops and family houses, in a respectful and very rich way promoting the meeting of cultures and which is possible even only in smaller groups, which is how we do and with common searches. I think Chörten defines its audience very well, which benefits travelers and, above all, creates bonds with new people and unforgettable precious memories.”

“What I liked most about the trip was the opportunity to be in contact with an extremely different culture, and in an incredible landscape! Being able to live deep experiences of self-knowledge and contact with spirituality.
What I liked the most about Chörten's services was being able to provide me with an extremely organized, safe trip, very well guided by Guilherme and the local guides, offering me all the necessary structure for my maximum comfort and safety during the trip. It was a personalized and differentiated service to meet our needs and interests. And that manages very well to organize all the necessary structure to provide us with a cultural trip, with comfort and safety. I didn't have to worry about anything… everything was solved by the Chörten team. I realized that it is a work developed with a lot of commitment and compassion! Congratulations on the excellent work!”

“I am going to India, Nepal and Bhutan for a month with a friend. The pre-trip report is very important, as it is at this moment that Chörten's work is largely concentrated. After four months researching agencies and trying to organize this trip, we realized that this would be an extremely complicated task for people here in Brazil who have no contacts in the countries surveyed. Halfway through, we found Chörten, who managed to plan absolutely everything, from logistics, reservations, tour suggestions and airline tickets. What impressed us was the kind of service that Chörten provides. Because we travel a lot, we have a lot of contact with travel agencies, which has always left a job to be desired. The interesting thing about Chörten is that they don't throw a ready-made itinerary and a ticket in your hand, but rather manage to carefully and carefully take care of a personalized trip and bring you all the cultural aspects of the countries to be visited before you board. Not to mention the extreme and detailed organization of tickets, visas, reservations and contact numbers.”
