Description of Rajasthan small group tour

Over two weeks, this thrilling small group tour immerses you in the history and vibrant culture of Rajasthan, taking you past iconic landmarks, ancient temples and into areas that many tours seldom visit.

Beginning with guided tours of both New Delhi and Old Delhi, and mixing in a flavoursome sampling of local street foods, the itinerary then takes you by overnight sleeper train to Udaipur. Here you’ll have a chance to explore the many temples of Eklingji, a sacred pilgrimage site for Hindus, but off the beaten track otherwise. Another highlight is the majestic City Palace with its pavilions, courtyards and hanging gardens.

Moving on to Jodphur, you’ll explore on foot some of the most architecturally significant structures, including temples, forts and cenotaphs. As ever, there will be plenty of opportunities along the way to tantalise your tastebuds with more Indian delicacies.

Pushkar is one of the oldest towns in India, situated at the edge of the desert and a perfect spot to take in a sunset before continuing to Jaipur the following day. You’ll soon see why it’s known as the ‘Pink City’, but you will also have the option to really appreciate Jaipur’s beauty with a hot air balloon flight. Important sites include the Amber Fort, and the nearby village of Tordi where you’ll stay in a renovated palace, and can visit a local school, a shepherd’s village and even try your hand at camel cart riding!

After a day in the stunning Keoladeo Ghana National Park, an absolute paradise for birdwatchers, the tour comes to a fitting end in Agra, where the world’s greatest monument to love awaits you.

This is the ultimate passage to India.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Rajasthan small group tour

Environment

How our company is making a difference:
We know that making the positive difference we aim to achieve will not be an easy task. However, our enthusiasm and commitment towards our travel responsibility mission is far stronger than any obstacles. We believe that in order to achieve any objective, the company has to have accurate policies and procedures for the employees and the guests to follow in order to reach our goal.

In India in particular, we encourage our travelers to not contribute to the already excessive garbage that floods the cities. We brief them on the best means of disposing of empty water bottles and food wrappers.

We have decided that the environment is a major component of any local community and any negative effect on the environment would directly have an impact on the lives of the inhabitants of the local community. Therefore, we have drawn up a strict environmental protection policy that all our employees and travelers have to abide by. For example, we recycle empty ink cartridges. A company collects them and disposes of them the correct manner.

In India, travelers are encouraged not to tempt children or any locals with food and sweets. The culture has to be respected at all times.

Following a full audit of our tours concentrating on the welfare of elephants being used for tourists, and following discussions with responsibletravel.com, we no longer offer elephant rides at Amber Palace or Dera Amer.

For us, Responsible Travel is the only way to travel.

Community

Throughout our long tourism business journey, exceeding 15 years of travel operation in the Middle East, we have succeeded in establishing strong links with the communities we are dealing with in the host destinations.

We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both the travelers and the local community gaining benefits. We benefit the local communities we visit using a wide scope of activities that have a positive impact on the local economy, directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.

We promise to support the local community of every destination we take our travelers to. We will do this by employing local guides, using local handicraft shops and recommend shops to our travelers so that their holiday spending contributes to the people of that country. Furthermore, we provide each traveler with a tipping guide. By doing this we set a concept of tipping and gratuity for every person who will offer a form of service to the traveler.

We have also considered the social aspect of the local community and how to respect the customs and traditions of the inhabitants helping us operate our tours. We always provide our guests with all the information needed to understand the community they are visiting and we create valuable opportunities for the travelers and the locals to mingle and exchange ideas and thoughts.

The first objective is to operate our tours in the most perfect way possible. Our second objective, but not second in importance, is to benefit the local community, protect the environment, and have a positive social impact on the inhabitants living in our host destinations. One of the ways of doing this is to inform and educate our travelers on the cultures of the destinations. By doing this we aim to create a form of respect between the travelers and the local citizens who they will face along their tours.

We educate all our staff on the real life situations of each destination. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and threats that they may face. By creating long lasting relationships with our local ground handlers, we are able to establish what needs the community has and through their information we can inform our travelers what they can contribute to the local community from their home countries.
