Responsible tourism: Best of India holiday, private departure

Environment

We are environmentally conscious and aware of its footprint. We put effort into educating our travellers to be aware of their impact on the ecosystems and to act responsible.

Our correspondence and promotion is carried out via the Internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper we use. All hotels on the Spirit of India tour have an environmental responsibility program in place and employ local people. The hotel in Kochi has a community program for supporting the development of local community.  Before travelling to India, we give our customers a short briefing about the importance of being responsible. We advise our travellers to take care of nature, control water usage whenever they can, and pick up all the litter that they see.

Excursions and attractions in which captive wildlife is held are not offered, except for properly regulated activities in compliance with local, national and international law. Any disturbance of natural ecosystem is minimised.

Community

Our tours are designed to show and preserve local culture and traditions. During our India tour, we include several visits to local markets and local factories. All of the guides,  drivers and staff are local people. We  also use local transport wherever possible, from trains to taxis, cycle rickshaws to the local metro.

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling. Respect to the local people, their cultures, the economy and the environment should be the first rule that travelers follow. On trips like the Spirit of India, where dress standards can be conservative (particularly outside of the major cities), we recommend  our travellers wear loose, lightweight clothing so not to offend, particularly when visiting religious sites.

Most of our meals in India are  prepared by locals chefs, and we also visit a local family to have dinner and learn about Indian family traditions and the way of life. In the aim to support the local economy  we only eat in local restaurants and buy in local markets.

Our goal is not only to help the local community but also to educate our customers to act in a socially responsible way. We will attempt to give an insight and understanding of the host culture and community to our clients so that they can gain more from their visit. All our travellers who book through our company receive information on India prior to their trip, to understand and respect the culture and environment of the host destination. Sustainable development, protection and conservation are most important goals of our company. We are doing our best to transfer our knowledge to others so we could together act responsibly in preserving the planet.
