"My goal isn't to visit as many countries as possible, but to truly understand the place I'm visiting and the people that I meet. 

My mission is to inspire everyone around the world to see their world, their home, Earth. I believe that the ability to travel is a human right. We dream about going to exotic lands like Laos, India, Nebraska... but too frequently feel held back by fear, finances, or work. The idea of luxury is changing. Luxury travel is the ability to access the world through experiences that you can't get from travel guides and Expedia.

I have turned my passion into my career with Cheema's NYC (not Cheema's Travel), and I could not be happier. I love working with others on their adventures. Some don't have the time to plan, or would like to plan but want someone else to take care of the chaos. Others want to see the world but aren't sure how to research because info on the internet is SO VAST! Whatever your reason, I'm here."
