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 during this trip, we have worked hard to ensure it is still environmentally-friendly in any area possible. We ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment in which you travel, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact whilst travelling, whether in natural or urban environments.

The logistics of this trip have also been designed with the environment in mind. This trip features travel primarily by shared vehicle rather than less eco-friendly means of transportation, with much of the day-to-day exploration of sites being done on foot. Reducing carbon emissions by any means possible is a significant factor in our responsible travel ethos, and it’s something we consider across all of our tours in all destinations.

To you, our traveller, 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. Similarly, we respectfully ask you to be environmentally-conscious in other areas across your trip whenever possible, for example using climate control and electricity sparingly where possible. This is something we believe in strongly as a company, and something we try to pass on to our travellers.

The Impacts of this Trip

As regular travellers, one thing that never ceases to amaze and inspire us is the kindness and generosity of local people. We firmly believe that they are who make these places special, and that they should benefit from our visit. Therefore, as first preference, we use local guides and drivers offered fair pay and working conditions, use locally-sourced supplies, and visit locally-owned accommodations, shops and eateries. This ensures the benefits of our responsible travel are as great and as wide-reaching as possible within the communities we visit.

This tour provides many excellent sources of support for local businesses, communities and projects that exceed the good degree provided by the basic logistics of our trips. This itinerary includes visits to many forts, palaces and heritage sites, with the addition of the majority of overnight stays in heritage properties. These visits support the upkeep and continued showcasing of these important sites, and by extension, the preservation of India’s rich history and culture.

Additional unique features of this trip include visits to small, rural villages, visits to local markets, a lake cruise, of course, the Pushkar Camel Fair, and even the National Camel Research Centre in Bikaner – the work of which continues to have significant benefits to local communities. Across all of these aspects of the tour, the support provided is diverse, wide-reaching and impactful.

Finally, we support the communities in every location visited on this trip by contributing to WaterAid. For every booking this tour receives, we make a token contribution to this admirable charity. Over 1.2 billion people call India home, and as a result, ensuring everyone has access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene is a huge challenge. Every day, at least 166 children under five die because of diarrhoea caused by dirty water and poor sanitation. It is particularly tough to get toilets and water to people living in India’s rapidly expanding slums. 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.
