Holiday type

Small group cultural tours

Typically you will be sharing your experiences with between 4-20 like minded travellers (depending on the trip, operator and how many others are booked on the trip) and you'll have a group leader with you. Whether you are travelling alone or with friends it's good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of privacy. This trip will appeal to travellers of all ages who enjoy meeting new people as well as experiencing new cultures.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: India Moghul highlights holiday

Environment

On this tour we use knowledgeable Indian tour leaders with a strong love for their own country, their rich culture and traditions, and a desire to share the wonders of their country with you.

As an investment both in their future and ours, we run an annual dedicated training course for them, a strong focus of which is to raise their awareness of responsible tourism practices so they can ensure that our tours run in accordance with our code of practice. For example, at the start of each trip they are able to provide guidance concerning local customs and culture so as to ensure that local sensibilities are respected.

In addition to the above, we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage. As well as this, we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators. We acknowledge that air travel has a negative impact on our environment, so we work together with Cool Earth to offset carbon and protect our important rainforests.

Community

Where possible, we use independently run and locally-owned accommodation to ensure that the income generated from our visit is spread amongst the community. In Karauli we stay in the home of the Maharaja, part of which has been converted to accommodate guests, whilst our hotel in Jaipur is a converted merchant’s house known as a haveli. Our support of these businesses is helping to preserve part of India’s rich historical heritage.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The weather was unseasonably cold so seeing the Taj Mahal in fog was unexpected! The mini Taj was beautiful, fatephur sikr amazing (despite the cold).The village unforgettable not least for the smiles and hospitality. Every day brought more wonderful experiences. Riding an elephant at the Amber fort was excellent. Accidentally meeting the Marjarah and his wife at Karauli and not realising it when he said he was the manager of the estate-a charming couple. Kids of Karauli treating us as celebs, all these helped us feel warmer than the weather.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Keep any small notes as 'toilet tokens', be prepared to tip well, most people have nothing and however poor you are you are comparatively rich, you can afford to be generous - I found a mean attitude of some of my group distressing and uncomfortable at times.

Just smile and interact with the locals-they are delightful- except it can be difficult getting on and off tourist buses. Take wet wipes and antibacterial gel, but don't over worry about Delhi belly- very few people had any trouble.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes but mainly as our tour guide used guides at the temples, palaces and forts, used local restaurants and obviously tipped wherever he could.

Impact on environment harder to evaluate as obviously we were using power and water resources heavily compared to locals.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent- India a revelation but too many of my group though were whiney and expected western style standards. Weather was awful but guide great (if long winded!) and wanted us to share his country. The staff in hotels are wonderful if idiosyncratic. They want to help but sort of charmingly fail. Wouldn't have missed this for the world. Special thanks to Gordham for taking Pat and I on a shopping trip in Jaiphur, the tuk tuk and rickshaw ride at dusk was a better thrill than anything else on the trip. Thank you so much!!!!
