Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: India vacation, small group

Providing our travelers with real life experiences without compromising the lives of local people is the ethos that we live by. Our style of travel is responsible, ensuring we benefit local people, the environment and wildlife and leave as little impact as possible. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travelers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments, in the distribution of wealth, in good will and cross-cultural sharing and in contributing to sustainable development.
We endeavour to support the local economy and put imperative finance back into a community. We do this by staying in small, locally run accommodation; our stay in the medieval town of Chanderi is an example of this as we stay at a local guesthouse. We always employ local leaders as this enables locals to have a firm, permanent job and we will feel they of course know their country better than anyone else. Whilst we are in Chanderi, our local leader will invite travelers back to his familyís home to share a meal with them, often the highlight of the trip as travelers gain a real insight into Indiaís tradition and culture and integrate with the locals. Our small group sizes, maximum 12 on this tour, enable us to travel in this style, as we also visit a Hindu family for a home-cooked lunch, and give our travelers those unique experiences and a sense of belonging.
Travelers are able to experience genuine insights into the local culture in India as we ensure we include as much local transport into our itineraries. No trip to India would be complete without experiencing the overnight sleeper trains, where travelers and locals travel alike as it is an exciting cultural eye opener aboard the fastest and convenient way to travel. Not only are travelers fascinated by this style of travel, but locals often love to meet with travelers and get to know their culture a little better.
Wildlife and the environment are parts of our world that are precious and must be respected at all times. On this tour, we include a visit to the Bandhavgarh National Park that is home to an abundance of magnificent wildlife and the elusive tiger, and chances of spotting one of these magical creatures is high. The entrance fees to the National Park are included in the price of the tour which contributes to the upkeep and conservation of the Park, enabling tigers to live in a protected environment and travelers to enjoy it for years to come.
The dress code in Asia is conservative, in particular when visiting temples, mosques and palaces. On this tour we visit Delhiís oldest mosque, Jain temples and the magical Taj Mahal and care must be taken to respect Indian culture. We suggest travelers invest in some lightweight, loose clothing that covers shoulders and knees when visiting India. Information can be accessed on our website prior to travel to help ensure travelers are able to follow appropriate dress codes and behaviours at these locations and your group leader will be on hand to advise throughout.
Our responsibilities donít just stop when our tours end. We run and support a variety of projects globally, from healthcare, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and environmental and wildlife protection. Our in house foundation, Our company foundation supports three projects in India, including the Asha Ka Jharna, which provides services to disabled children and adults, Deepalaya that focuses on building a better future for Indiaís street children and GOONJ, which channels vital resources such as clothes and household goods, into rural India.
