  • "Newton was a life saver in planning and executing our trip to India to visit our daughter who had been studying there. He was the person who I called when my daughter and her friends were stranded in the middle of nowhere late at night after talking a wrong bus. Within an hour, he had a car to meet her; a hotel sorted out and helped them make the boat tour. He helped us plan our two week holiday in India and it was spectacular. He arranged for every detail including a very trusted private car with excellent driver, all our accommodations, private tour guides in each city and in country airfares. Our trip was custom built around our needs and desires and it was truly a memory of a lifetime.
