Responsible tourism: Rajasthan and Taj Mahal tour

Environment

We carefully choose hotels that run there operations according to that low impact policy on environment and policy include recycling the water; adopt water harvesting system, proper management of waste. We also encourage the hotels in countryside, family run hotels, Fort and Heritage hotels we use by giving guaranteed minimum bookings in per year to use local products whenever possible; favour biodegradable, recyclable or reusable products, pay attention to processes involved in the preparation of the products, purchase appliances and other equipment that are designed for minimum water and energy consumption, willing to spend a little more in order to protect the environment, ask suppliers to make sure about their practices regarding environment protection and working conditions, and make them understand that the corrective environmental actions represent an investment of less than 100000 Indian Rupees and an almost immediate payback (in less than a year).

Maximum destinations covers in the tour by using trains for transportations, some destinations we include in tour dose not have accessibility by train in that case we use fuel efficient vehicle. The old part of most city in Rajasthan has narrow streets, we request guest to explore traditional bazaars by walking, some place in jodhpur we use horse cart in old city tour.

Community

We take our guest in the bazaars of Jaipur and Jodhpur, these bazaars are main retail centres of Block print fabrics, Appliqué fabrics, tie and die fabric, Tribal and Enamel jewellery, produced and manufactured in near by villages by women and men and also thousands of family involve in making of Juties (local shoes), gift items like wooden Puppets, violet made out the fabric, pens with nice mirror work and key chains and tourists are the perfect customer for these items and end of the day every body is happy with good numbers of sale, those cities comes in main tourist circuit, traveler play major role in local economy and local community get benefited directly.

When stay of our guest in fort palace and Havelies (Castle) these places are generally situated in centre of small town and villages , we take our guest to local market where they haven an opportunity to purchase and taste local sweets and spices which is also support local economy.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Ranakpur Temple, wandering the streets of Bundi and visiting the Hindu temples there with the guide.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Make sure you are clear with your guide about what you are looking for. The guides are very helpful and very willing to work with you to give you a wonderful
experience that expands your horizons on the country and it's culture, and it really helps you develop a deep appreciation for the country. Be vocal about what you're looking for, ask questions, and don't be afraid to try new things!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. As much as possible, the driver/tour representative would look to providing local guides when visiting monuments to help benefit local people. The same
was done with recommendations for places to shop and places to eat.

Additionally, getting to stay at the nature reserve also felt like a great opportunity to learn about conservation efforts in India and where assistance/support is needed.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


This is my fourth trip that I've found through responsible travel, and my first trip with our tour operator. It was a fantastic and rewarding experience which I
will not soon forget. It really opened my eyes to a lot I didn't know about Indian culture and history, and the tour representative was patient to all questions,
impassioned to teach about his culture, and flexible to changes and requests. If you're looking for kind people, beautiful monuments, gorgeous temples, and
some of the best food you've ever had, I highly recommend this trip!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The wide variety of different experiences of place, people and food enjoyed within a relatively short period. The most important contributor to this was of course an excellent and friendly guide, who I would thoroughly recommend to others.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Time spent agreeing a personal itinerary and checking the hotels booked is always well spent. Everyone wants something slightly different and a tour organiser will need advice to provide the best mix.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I hope so. Money spent in the local economy, particularly with smaller traders and guesthouses will always be beneficial.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent.

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for your review. Your itinerary really did benefit the local traders. From the accommodations maintained by local villagers to those purchases of fresh items locally, shopping at the local vegetable market and the veg bought from small vegetable shop and the vegetables cooked for you in your of countryside accommodations where you stayed.
