Rose Thomas

Wheeling, IL

Specialist for India and the Indian Subcontinent

I have been helping my clients fulfill their travel needs for the past fifteen years, creating unique, once-in-a-lifetime itineraries, connecting them to great deals and offers and travelling with groups of clients. I curate travel plans that are suited to each person’s particular financial and time budgets. I am  known to design trips at the highest levels of luxury, authenticity or along roads less traveled to the hidden gems of the Sub-continent. 

I was born and raised in India, and have traveled extensively throughout the Indian Sub-continent (India, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, Sri Lanka & The Maldives).  

Putting together a great FIT is like a logic puzzle for me, and I love the challenge of customizing flawless vacations for clients. I absolutely love to see my client’s reactions after their trips! When they come back looking ten years younger, I know I did a good job! 

90% of my clients are first-time travelers, and 95% of those clients say they will travel again. My clients speak with praise and satisfaction for the memories they cherish on the trips we planned together.  

The ultimate praise for my work is being recognized by Travel + Leisure as an ‘A’ List Agent, for knowledge of India and the Indian Subcontinent, in 2019. 

It would be my pleasure to offer my services and help with your special vacation planning and events.

Memorable Moment of 2020!

“When I decided to travel to India with my family—two parents now in their 70s, my husband, a first-time visitor the country, and our four-year-old son—I knew the trip would require some skillful planning and behind-the-scenes maneuvering to make everyone happy. Enter Rose Thomas, a dear friend and an India expert like no other. She planned our days with precision and care, allowing for both downtime and moments where we could all bond together as a family.” Jacqueline Gifford Editor-in-Chief of Travel + Leisure at Meredith
