This tour is very carefully designed by the local travel specialist many of whom have converted their heritage buildings into a hotel now. All drivers are local in the Goa and Rajasthan sector. We use local owned and staffed restaurants and accommodation.
The hotel which we are using in Goa is just a ground and one floor building which gives it a very personal, relaxed and private feeling instead of staying in a multi floor hotel.
We use only local guides as we feel that in Rajasthan one should have a local guide who can share his knowledge with the tourist as, in India the culture, caste and the language changes every 100km, and it becomes necessary to have local guides everywhere.
All our accommodations which we have carefully chosen are environmentally friendly and use CFL lamps for lighting to save electricity. Many of our accommodation grow their own vegetable for their daily needs in their own gardens and most of the Heritage hotels recycle waste water for gardening purposes.
On this trip we support an NGO called Jagrit who are involved in giving education, accommodation, clothing and food to small children who are found begging in railway stations. An amount of £5 per person goes to this NGO.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
