This was a 12 day tour of Myanmar in which we visited multiple sites (Yangon, Inle Lake, Mandalay, Bagan, and Kyaikhtiyo) with a myanmarese guide (who spoke English perfectly well), focusing on the pagodas, stupas, temples, and Buddhist heritage (but not exclusively). There were talks given by Stephen Batchelor and optional group meditations and discussions. The trip was organized by... More

Any moment you can spend with Eleven Directions will be extraordinary. I was lucky enough to have a day with Shantum in Delhi and not only was it an incredible window into the city, it was a deeply profound and transformative experience. Shantum is a incredible teacher and person, I cherish the time we had and I could not have... More

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

Any visit to India would be eye-opening, but t​o steep in the wisdom of the Dharma and the embrace of Sangha over a prolonged retreat in India​ allowed for true personal transformation​.​

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
