Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Though a minimal amount of time is spent within nature over the course of this trip, we have worked hard to ensure it is as environmentally-responsible as possible. This trip features visits to a number of rural destinations; we ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment in which you travel, whether in rural or urban areas, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact whilst travelling, too.

One significant aspect of this trip that has been designed to be as eco-friendly as possible is transport. This trip features journeys by train and by shared vehicle, with much of the day-to-day explorations and tours of sites being done on foot. We have found responsibly-considered transport is just one small but significant way to reduce our carbon footprint and make our tours more environmentally-friendly.

Finally, to you, our travellers, we ask you to be vigilant about disposing of your waste and recycle where possible. During your trip you will be asked if you have any waste to dispose of when it is a suitable time in the itinerary. This ensures we make it as easy as possible for our travellers to be eco-friendly whilst traveling. We strongly advise all travellers to bring a reusable water bottle - this is an easy way to save plastic waste and is detailed in our ‘What to bring’ trip notes for all trips to all destinations. Your guide will remind you where and when you can fill up your re-usable water bottle. We also encourage general sustainability whenever possible – limited use of air-conditioning and electricity for instance. This is something we care about strongly as an organisation, and something we try to pass on to our travellers.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

This trip includes stops in a number of rural locations. Responsible tourism can be a powerful tool, particularly within small communities such as these, and we do our best to ensure that the benefits of our tours reach as widely as possible into these communities. As first preference, we use local guides and drivers offered fair wages and working conditions, use locally-sourced supplies, and visit locally-owned accommodations, shops and eateries in order to benefit the people of these communities as directly as possible.

This itinerary features visits to temples, museums, castles and even art galleries. The economic support that responsible tourism brings is vital in the continued running of these places, and ultimately, in the preservation and exhibition of the proud history and rich culture of these regions. Similarly, the tour supports a number of important cultural relics such as Shimla’s ‘Toy Train’ and a number of heritage properties. Inclusions such as this keep wonderful aspects of local culture alive, benefitting not only the communities in which they are found, but any future visitors, too. We believe this is just one of many wonders that a well-crafted responsible tour can provide.

Finally, we support the rural communities, and indeed those in all other locations visited on this tour by contributing to WaterAid. For every booking we receive, we make a token contribution to this admirable charity. WaterAid works together with the Government, organisations and communities, to tackle challenges caused by a lack of access to clean, sustainable drinking water head on, and we are proud to support this charity.
