Each day was packed with memorable moments, but if I had to pick one day it would be when we went to a very small town to stay in a fort/castle overnight. It was fantastic. I can't wait to go back one day. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Transportation
Where possible we will travel on local bus or on the Indian Railways minimizing our demand for special tourist vehicles and fuel while giving you plenty of opportunity to meet and interact with local people/communities.

India Responsible Travel Bags
We give our passengers a simple cotton bag that reads "Say no to plastic" in English and local regional dialect depending on where you're traveling. These bags in the north are made by Karm Marg, an organisation who helps the less privileged children by providing vocational training. Our south Indian bags are made by Nesamani Women self-help groups - a group of widows who primarily stitch bags and do embroidery.

People

Local Leaders
You will be accompanied by local leaders on this trip who will take you into temples, mosques, shrines and Gurudwaras where appropriate, and are able to teach the group about the etiquette and customs specific to the places visited, enabling a deeper understanding of the communities and cultures encountered in India. In a country where so many ethnic communities live together, its important to respect individual religious beliefs. Our company wants to promote this understanding through insight into religious and cultural practices. Local leaders are the cultural ambassadors, know multiple dialects of the sub-continent and can easily facilitate local interaction giving enriching experience to the passengers.

Accommodation
We try and utilise local hotel owners and small businesses through our trips. We help locals set up home stays, hotels or small lodges and try and motivate them to cater to our groups. This mutual support is beneficial in the form of economic support from our passengers and a great way to witness and interact with real local people.

Local cooking demonstration
In Orchha, one of our included activities is the local cooking demonstration by a person named Vandhana - we call this Vandhana's cooking class, a local housewife who conducts cooking classes for our groups. Local Project Visit
One of our included activities is to visit a local project called "Taragram" that works towards empowerment of the local tribal women by training and employing them in their workshop that makes hand-made paper. We offer our passengers the chance to visit the workshop and meet the local women.

Sailing on the Ganges
This activity is unique to our itinerary; we are supporting the local boat men by employing them every week when operating this trip. Through a rotational program, every man gets the chance to sail our boat and interact with the group.
