India food and culture tour
Description of India food and culture tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetGolden Triangle is one of the most visited tourism circuits in India. One of the cities in Golden Triangle is New Delhi which has got high amount of pollution. To do our bit in reducing the impact on environment, We have emission tested vehicles for the tours. These are as per government norms. Also, our vehicles are regularly serviced so that the fuel utilisation is efficient. This reduces carbon footprint
All food tours in India are arranged keeping in mind the hygiene factor. We select only those shops that are very popular, hygienic and are conscious of not spreading litter. We constantly offer feedback to shops to maintain proper social hygiene by placing bins and utilizing these for collecting litter.
While you visit Taj Mahal, we encourage our guests to either walk or use battery operated Vans. This reduces the impact of pollution on Taj Mahal.
We do not encourage activities that cause harm to animals - we do not suggest going for Elephant Riding activity at Amber Fort.
PeopleFood Tours are at the heart of this trip. We use local vendors that are hygienic and passionate about what they do. Most of the vendors are very popular and have been serving food since generations. By introducing them to you, we are encouraging local employment through tourism means. This is a win-win for all parties - where the traveler gets to taste safe and hygienic authentic food and the local vendor benefits from the proceeds of the tour.
We have included village tours like Kachpura tour in Agra where you visit a local family and a village near Agra, learn about local culture and see beautiful views of Taj Mahal from there. Such tours are an example of community tourism where the proceeds of tour are given to local society and Mughal Heritage Foundation.
Although the guides are freelancers in India, we offer them frequent training and feedback so that they can empower themselves to offer better services for future tours. Our drivers too are given necessary allowances so that they are more relaxed during the tour. We employ local guides to offer them employment.
