Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Rajasthan adventure tour, India

Environment

On this trip to Rajasthan we employ local guides and drivers, stay in locally owned hotels and private homes, which again diverts important funds directly into the area. These are regions that have seen precious little from the boom in tourism, it is our aim to change this. We automatically make a contribution to climate care for every client we carry.

We are very aware of the economic, ecological and ethical impact tourism can have on ancient cultures and fragile environments. We realise that taking clients through such a region can have a negative impact on the environment if not handled responsibly and as such, on all of our trips we go to great lengths to minimise the negative and accentuate the positive… after all, there are also many good things that the traveller can bring.

By keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites we visit – particularly important as this trip visits some delicate ecosystems.

When you take one of our trips, we make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation who work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint and reduce their carbon emissions.

Much of this trip is undertaken on bicycle - obviously one of the greenest and most environmentally friendly modes of transport there is.

Community

In our opinion, our India trips – where we steer our clients off the main tourist circuits and into the rural regions of the subcontinent, to interact directly with local people – is responsible travel at its most immediate and effective.

We stay with local families, visit local industries (learn to milk a buffalo, make a sari, cook a meal) and call on local organisation to learn more about the problems of the region and how we might help. Not only does this allow local people and visitors to interact and learn about each others culture, it ensures that the revenue generated by tourism goes directly to local communities.

On this trip, which runs through Rajasthan, we involve our clients in tree planting schemes as well as help directly with the financing of rural village schools; added to this our clients will have the chance to accompany members of the Brahmin caste in learning about cookery and culture. Interacting with other tribes and castes provides our travellers with an invaluable insight into Indian culture and also ensures money and resources stay within the local community's economy.

We really involve our travellers in local communities, which is a responsibility we do not understake lightly. We strive to ensure we leave places untouched, with our travellers taking only photographs and memories and leaving only footprints.
