I had the opportunity to take a week's journey with Eleven Directions to visit the Dalai Lama in his home Dharmasala. As you can imagine, I was very excited. I have been on many retreats, so I figured I was ready for anything. Plus, this retreat came very highly rated. And, being a retreat centered on Buddha/mindfulness, it was hard... More

I wrote a previous review about Eleven Directions when i was in early phases of my Buddhist Pilgrimage planning. Staff had already shown their caring and support for people seeking this special kind of visit to India. I had many questions - and some anxiousness- since I'd not previously been out of country. All were met with compassion; emails answered... More

This has been a truly memorable and magnificent journey of the soul to the Buddha's heartland under the skilful guidance of Dharmacharya Shantum Seth and his remarkable, efficient support staff. We visited every major place of significance in Gautama Buddha's life, literally in his footsteps. The journey has been so powerful on so many different levels, spiritually, relationships, camaraderie and... More

I am not sure if this is acceptable since I've not even taken my trip yet, but am so happy I had to write. I have never been out of the US but my heart longs to go on a Buddhist Pilgrimage. Looked on Trip Advisor and Eleven Directions had good reviews so I reached out to them. Wow!! The... More

I have been on three tours with this company, each one better than the last. Shantum Seth is not only informative but a warm, wonderful person filled with information and anecdotes. Besides the day tours of Delhi, I have also gone with him on of his Footsteps of the Buddha tours. The size of the tours is perfect, maybe a... More

I've gone with Shantum and the Eleven Directions folks on many journeys. He is a wealth of information and a master at navigating the most challenging situations with great ease. Watching him plan for the arrivals and departures of people joining on the journeys as well as ever changing situations is amazing. He often finds himself in the company of... More

I have had the great honor and pleasure of experiencing Shantum Seth's day tour of Delhi as well as two of his tours of the Buddhist sights. Eighteen years ago, a friend and I took his three week tour, In The Footsteps of the Buddha, and it was truly a life changing experience for me. I am not the type... More

I've just returned from an amazing journey to India. I wish everyone who comes to India could see and experience India through the eyes of Shantum Seth. He loves his country and gently exposes an India that I feel privileged to have experienced. Trip is extremely well-planned and everyone in our group (17 of us) was well taken care of.... More
