Hello and Namaste, I am Raz Hellwing, a TV director, cameraman, and part-time musician. My journey to India was unexpected. In 2000, while working as a wedding photographer, a couple I photographed in India invited me to set up an editing room for them. Despite not having any interest in India before, I decided to take the opportunity and arrived in the city of Laknau in October of that year.

I had preconceived notions of India as a dirty place where one had to bring their own toilet paper, but to my surprise, the colors, sounds, and smells of India captivated me. It reminded me of the fascination I had with new experiences as a child. My India journey began with a soft landing, personal care, and guidance, which helped me discover the beauty of the country.

During my seven-month stay in India, I had the opportunity to film and photograph the Kumba Mela festival, the largest festival in the world, attended by 80 million people in 2001. This defining event took place in Allahabad, where a star combination repeated itself once in 144 years, which I was privileged to witness.

Three years later, I returned to India to film the series "Masa La Chai" (Journey to Chai). The series explored the journey of Michal Adler, Chen Luzia, and myself as we traveled from the north to the south of India. My goal was to show India in the most accessible and authentic way, using a variety of transportation methods such as buses, trains, rickshaws, elephants, camels, and walking.

After a heart attack at the age of 41, I realized that life is short and decided to pursue what brings me happiness. This led me to become a tour guide. Humor is an essential part of my tours as laughter is crucial for good health. My trips are designed to strike a balance between organized activities and allowing the experience to unfold naturally.

In summary, my journey to India was unexpected, but it changed my perspective on life. Through my tours, I hope to provide a soft landing for visitors, enabling them to discover the beauty of India and have a memorable experience.
