Mystical India Tour, Rajasthan Tour, Yoga with Dr. Steven Hairfield
Important Information for the Participants of the
tour Mystical India
with Mr. Steven Hairfiel

We are publishing this Information as we have been contacted by some of the tour participants asking us for information and status of the above tour !

We have a bad news for you at this point. Though all the arrangements were made by us as specified in our below itinerary which we have been promoting on our website since March 2006 – But recently we came to know about the fraudent activities of Mr. Steven Hairfield as after having used all our services and collected advance payments from the participants he is not operating the tour as planed.
Like us also the group members are subject to cheating activity as if they participated in the tour they will not be getting the services as they were mentiond in our original itinerary nor they will be staying in the same hotels as described orginally.

As you all are probably aware that till recently all the tour related links of the tour from Mr. Hairfields sites were pointing towards our site. ( It looked like as below:

Experience the truth of India by experiencing directly the people while visiting with them for an eye opening experience on the simplicity of life. A true journey of Self Discovery!

After the tour has been booked and advance payments are collected he has removed the links from his website in the mid of last week (2nd week of August 2006) and only than we realized that we have been cheated by him.

 All the tour participants should be informed that we have the snap shots and technical specifications available if needed for future reference as this material is subject to copyright and we intend to lodge a complaint with the authorities against Dr. Steven as he is denying to pay the charges and compensation for the services of ours he used for over six months. Mr. Steven Hairfield is intentially no more contactable !

We would like to mention the reasons we are asking Mr. hairfield for the compensation:

  •      From March 2006 till August 2006 he had been using our resources to promote the tour and have made the booking on the basis of the information which were provided exclusively on our website which has been designed, promoted and hosted by us.

  • By having given the tour operation to a third party he has broken the mutual agreement with us and to the participants same services can not be provided as they were mentioned in the original tour itinerary.

  •  In another words having used our Services over 6 months - he is denying to pay  – this is a fraud !

  • The tour itinerary is a copyright of Indo Vacations and tour operation has to take place through Indo Vacations only. He intends to misuse the copyright which is illegal and subject to legal consequences

  • We have suffered financial loses and moral harassment due to the cancellations for the arrangements we made for the tour on the basis of written communication with him.  

Our Team of Indo Vacations who worked on the tour booking & website design for tour would like to meet him during his visit to India to convey a message:

If Dr. Steven Hairfield never meant the things he said and wrote – he should be made to realize this intensively

Details of the Mr. Hairfield fraud activities:

Upon receiving Mr. Hairfields mail on 10th  Feb. 2006 we prepared a tour as per his expectations, in the following days made the amendments as wished by him and it was accepted by him with great satisfaction on 13th of February 2006. 

After that he asked us again for some more options and we had some mail exchanges and eventually on 22nd February 06 he finalized the tour accepting the cost of the tour mentioned in his e mail. Upon having the confirmation from him on the same day we activated the tour bookings and he was intimated.

On his request on 27.02 06 we sent him our Tour itinerary with details as he wished to publish this on his website.

On 6th March 2006 he requested us to advertise the tour only on our website as he said, he would like to use only our website to provide the information and with a lot of work & energy we upgraded the page, updated the contents, uploaded many pictures which was a lot of work but we did this anticipating good potential & seeing a trustworthy partner in him.

On 19 April 2006 he informed us that he has already 10 people but he is  looking at 30 and we changed the booking arrangements and confirmed him same by a return e mail. On his request to send the details to Mr. Garry (his associate) , a copy of the itinerary and the cost was sent to him.

On our request for the advance deposit he informed to wait for a while as he is still in process to make the bookings and he would pay all at once (his mail of 21.04.06)

On 28th  March  2006 Mr. Gary wrote us an e mail asking for a cut / commission for him on the tour cost. He was told that as the cost was already negotiated and finalized with Dr. Steven with many extra inclusions so we could not give any further reduction /commission on the tour cost.  All the tour participants should be informed that we provided the cost as low as only USD 878 per person to Dr. Steven.

On 11th may 2006 Mr. Hairfield confirmed that the tour was going to take place through Indo Vacations only  and there was no change in the itinerary and Mr. Gary would not contact us any more for his cut and commission on the tour cost. He confirmed this twice to us on 11th may as well as on 12th may 2006.

After having spoken with Dr. Kotecha (The Ayurveda doctor) we reconfirmed him on 13 may 2006 that all the services from our side and requested him to send all the details as and when they are with him.  On 13th may he informed us that he would made us the details available as soon as possible.

On good faith we reconfirmed the hotels and made all the needed arrangements, to mention a few making payments to the transporters, sending hotels the contract vouchers, fixing some important appointments with the known spiritual leaders, arranging utensils for the Hindu rituals as mentioned in our tour itinerary and also organizing OM RINGS including his as he wished to have one and we arranged it for the whole group !

All the tour members should be informed that:

1.     This tour was designed by us which falls under the Copyright of Indo Vacations. The contents were written by Mr. Sanjeev Minglani and it was subject to the tour operation through Indo Vacations only.

2.     From the very first day till the tour was sold out recently, for the promotion purposes Mr. Hairfield used the material provided by us only on our website (which was solely created by for the logical purpose of tour operation through us).

3.     As all of you aware that our website has played a significant role to provide the information and getting the bookings to Mr. Hairfield. The information provided by us was the main and perhaps the only internet source of Information.

Even till 2nd August 2006 was using our website to give the information where official tour operator is Indo Vacations and nobody else. Here is the link:

On 4h August he write us somebody has forgotten to alert as and he does not want us any more to be operative partner despite his written commitments to us !

We at Indo Vacations feel ourselves  misused and betrayed due to the reasons stated above and we would take every possible action against Mr. Hairfield and make him pay for the compensation due the moral and financial suffering of ours.

We regret to the traveler who have booked the tour by not knowing the facts and might now have to face nconvenience and problems that may cause them due to the  fraudent activities of Mr. Hairfield.

This page will be updated again with more information about actions against Mr. Hairfield !

 Team Indo Vacations - Betrayed by an an American Monk, Dr. Steven Hairfield, PH.D

Dr. Steven Hairfield from USA

At the beginning of his lectures and workshops, Dr. Steven L. Hairfield likes to ask his audience: “What if God heard everything you thought and considered it a request for It to do something for you? Would you change the way that you think?” This seemingly innocuous question normally triggers a myriad of visions in the minds of listeners. It opens doors to a world of spirituality, and it sets the thought process in motion.
