Imagine cruising through Europe on the Rhine River, exploring the magical and breathtaking ancient country of Myanmar or kayaking along a lush and peaceful Hawaiian beach. Whether alone, with a loved one, family or group, traveling offers new experiences, education and the opportunity to create lasting memories to be cherished forever.
“One of the greatest gifts a parent or grandparent can give to their children is the joy of traveling together,” says Shantha Mony, co-owner of Dream-Ality Travels in Thousand Oaks. “Travel opens their world and exposes them to different cultures. As a family company, we know how important it is to tailor a trip to all ages, and we understand a parent’s desire to provide the ideal family vacation.”
Avid travelers themselves, Sam and Shantha Mony migrated to the United States from India with their two daughters in 1988. They note how family vacations broadened their daughters’ worldviews, and both of their children have studied and worked abroad in several countries. Expanding on her experience and enjoyment of planning trips for family and friends, Shantha and her husband, Sam, created Dream-Ality Travels, an agency specializing in designing and creating amazing travel experiences and adventures for families and groups.
Sam and Shantha travel extensively and visit most of the properties and cruise lines that they recommend to their clients. Doing so allows them to gain firsthand knowledge about destinations as well as meet and form relationships with the staff so that Dream-Ality clients receive first-class treatment. Their close ties with many resorts and associations serve to ensure an optimal vacation experience for their clients.
Whether you’re planning a family getaway, honeymoon, anniversary, romantic trip, or a solo or group adventure, Dream-Ality Travels can turn your travel dreams into reality. Shantha and Sam will handle every detail to ensure your trip is memorable in all the right ways. Beginning with your initial consultation, until the time you return home from your vacation, Dream-Ality Travels is there to assist you every step of the way. Customized services and relationships with the various resorts and cruise lines provide additional perks to ensure that everyone returns home happy and fulfilled from a memorable vacation.
While Shantha and Sam love planning memorable trips for couples and families, they are especially passionate about creating group travel and themed group trips, such as an all-inclusive resort girlfriends getaway or a safari reunion trip to Tanzania. As Certified Group Events Travel Specialists, the couple designs trips for any interest and group, including golf, food and wine tasting, destination weddings, scuba diving, book clubs and hobbies. Another unique feature is fundraising through group travel. Their extensive experience in customizing packages will help many causes and organizations meet their fundraising goals in a fun and memorable way.
Sam’s visits to the Holy Land inspired his passion for designing life-changing experiences through faith-based travel. Organized guided tours to sites like the Sea of Galilee, Mount of Beatitudes, Jordan, Bethlehem, Jerusalem and the Garden Tomb make the Bible come alive for many. Sam and Shantha offer custom tours for church groups to the Holy Land, Europe or Turkey to see the many significant historic and religious locations.
Active in their community and church, Sam recently participated in a mission trip to Angola prison in Louisiana, and Shantha took part in a mission group to Uganda last month. As members of the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce, they recently organized a group trip to Peru and the Galapagos. Shantha recently became an incoming Ambassador trainee of the Chamber, to welcome and support new members to the chamber. She is also active in organizations, such as NAWBO, eWomen Network and the Chamber Synergy group.
