Whether you’re touring India for the first or fourth time, seeing it with an experienced, knowledgeable guide – someone who can explain, interpret and share insights about the wondrous sights you’ll encounter at every turn – transforms a vacation into an experience of a lifetime. Enter Nathan Katz, a Florida International University distinguished professor emeritus and scholar of Indian religions who not only specializes in Asian Jewry, but also has lived in and traveled extensively throughout India for years.
From his first journey as a 20 year-old backpacker to residing with the Jewish community of Kochi (Cochin) and later as a member of a Jewish delegation of rabbis and scholars to meet with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the four-time Fulbright scholar eagerly returns every chance he gets, both individually and leading groups. “I love showing India and introducing it to people in a very direct way. One of the many features that’s great about this tour is the interactive opportunities participants will have with Indian people. Those human connections – that’s what makes a trip memorable.”0
