Responsible tourism: Rajasthan private vacation


Rough Guide to India described our tours as “The most original, hands-on and ethical itineraries on the market” – we’re proud of this and like to think that the quote sums up our ethos neatly. When you take a tour with us, around 70% of your money stays in India – supporting the social/environmental work of our partners and the projects they support.

We feel particularly strong that guides should be local, giving you the opportunity to spend time with people local to the country, supporting their livelihoods and assimilating the local culture. All tour partners, tour guides and hosts come from the host country. In most cases, your guide is from the specific village in which you are staying. This may mean that your host has imperfect English – in some cases they are specifically recruited and trained from the local village – but we like to think that the benefits are worthwhile.

We choose locally owned hotels rather than international chains.

In terms of transport – you’ll see from the itinerary that we’re keen to cut the driving and encourage guests to stay several days in any one place with a local guide (rather than continuously driving from one place to another), guests will participate in lifestyles that are themselves sustainable – you'll eat locally produced food (often growing in the fields adjacent to you), use local transport, cook dinner with your host, and visit local environmental projects.

Our tours are listed in the Ethical Travel Guide, published by Tourism Concern.


For example if we take Chambal River Safari camp there are 20 people working. Majority of our team members belong to the local community. The Camel Safari is operated with the help of local camel owners. The owners are mainly marginal farmers and used their camels for ferrying illegally felled timber from the Sanctuary. Participation in the Camel Safari has provided them an alternative means of livelihood that generates a far better income for them and ensures their stake holding in the protection of the Sanctuary.
Tour guides/drivers should be local to the country and/or culture, and enthusiastic about our philosophy. They are responsible for the well-being of the visitors throughout the tour. We encourage the use of local hosts to provide personal insight into a specific area. For example, we employ the farmer to show visitors around and invite them into their homes. Most of the restaurants we take the guests to are locally owned and we provide the opportunity to use local transport like using a three wheeler so that the owner of the three wheeler get's an income.
