Responsible Travel

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

Planet

We want our customers to enjoy an experience led holiday within a natural environment. To do this we use partners and suppliers who are guardians of their surroundings. This means that they look after the local environment they are responsible for, as well as encouraging employment, and revenue generation, for the local population.

Where we can, we use partners that adhere to sustainability practises. Due to the location of a lot of our accommodation partners actively look to minimise energy and water usage through the use of sustainable solar power and rain water collection. We encourage the accommodation in this itinerary to source food goods from local markets where possible. This has two benefits, one being reduced transport effects, and a boost to the local economy and benefit the local population.

As you explore the wonderful rail network of India you can do so in the knowledge that you're using public transport, and therefore reducing vehicle emissions.

People

We align ourselves with partners who actively work with the local communities, whether this means that they are employing the local population, involved in conservation efforts within the community, or educating the local population with an aim to encourage them to look after their environment. Wherever we can, and especially when our customers request it, we include visits to community projects, and local villages so that our customers can interact with the local population, and if the local village/tribe so wish, they have the opportunity to sell locally made crafts.

On this trip you have the ability to volunteer in the kitchen at the Golden Temple in Amritsar, learn about the Tibetan freedom movement, understand more about the UNESCO listed Shimla railway.

Pre-travel all of our customers are presented with what we call a ‘travel pack’. Within this travel pack our customers receive all the detail about their trip. The detail includes useful information on the destinations they are travelling to, including, but not limited to, the social and political situations within the destination. We also give guidelines on what to pack to try and minimise the amount of luggage our customers take resulting in lower fuel usage on planes and
