WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
Bliss is being completely present in what you are doing and experiencing. It could be a cooking class in Cambodia, joining in a Lama dance in Tibet, or standing in front of one of the world's wonders.
You may want to blow your own trumpet on top of the world or try interesting cuisine.
Travelling has so much to offer you.
Travelling to Tibet, Nepal and Cambodia with Mandala Magic Tours literally changed my life. I'd been dreaming of going to Tibet in particular for years and when the opportunity came I took it without hesitation. It was one of those instinctual feelings that couldn't be ignored. Karen looked after us all with such care, enthusiasm and local knowledge where ever we went on our trip, that I felt completely safe as well as relaxed. And even though Gary couldn't travel with us, I was impressed to hear of how much he had helped from Australia too, keeping us smoothly on our way, without us even knowing.
What's special about Mandala Magic Tours is the mutual love and respect that is built between them and the people and places they visit. Every day we experienced something that could never have happened without such a unique spirit to travelling.
First and foremost, I am so glad to have had my first India experience with you guys. I felt safe and provided for, and felt totally looked after ~ and yet had time to myself for personal unique experiences. If there were hitches, we didn't know about them! Both Gary & Karen’s patience and understanding of individuals is wonderful. Every day was filled with colour, excitement, history. I felt spellbound my many sights and sounds. Our group of travelers were wonderful! We bonded extremely well, yet all I think had a wonderful personal experience that will last a lifetime. Thank you Karen and Gary, You and India will always have a piece of my heart.

"Gary and Karen Scott offer a unique opportunity to see the real India. They take you on a journey like no other, to places and experiences off the tourist track that you would not experience anywhere else. Their wealth of knowledge about the country, its history, its culture and religion is amazing and they engage you in their love of the Country. It was definitely a once in a lifetime trip and I’m planning my next one with them. "
Travelling with Karen and Gary is a unique experience which, I firmly believe, is quite unique. Money can’t buy everything – it certainly can’t buy the loving compassion with which each member is treated and the sense of becoming part of a family, secure in knowing that in this new, fascinating, challenging environment, you are both safe and yet free to experience an incredible journey. Whether that journey for you is deeply spiritual or simply adventurous, travelling with Mandala Magic is an experience which quite frankly defies description. Laughter, awe, fascination………..you’ll experience a gamut of emotions and start to gain an understanding of the people and the country from Garry and Karen’s truly unique perspective and background. Be prepared for an experience which will change your life; be warned that it’s addictive; be loved.

“We went on a tour of Tibet and Nepal with Mandala Magic as our last big trip overseas before children. Both my wife and I have travelled extensively so we started our tour with a very keen idea of what we didn’t want. We experienced the best of cultural and environmental aspects of every destination and we were impressed with the knowledge of both the local guides and Australian guides. The passion both the sets of guides felt for the trips was evident. A highlight for us was the fact that the Australian guides stayed with us all the way through and, offing us peace of mind and stability in the entire tour. This was by far the best trip I have been on and I would highly recommend Mandala Magic to anyone considering a tour to one of their unique destinations.”
