Environment
In Dasada in Gujarat, we use the best vehicles for safaris that cause less pollution. These vehicles are continuously monitored and serviced by the hotel so that the vehicles are efficient and have better carbon footprint.

During Elephanta Island visit, we arrange local ferries that are government registered and shared. These ferries cause lesser pollution as these are better managed. We also encourage our guests not to litter during the ferry and at the caves.

Sula Vineyards visit included in Nashik employ sustainable efforts to safeguard the environment. Forty Nice Percent of winery and hospitality operations are run on solar energy. Ninety Nine percent of packaging material used by them is recyclable. Less number of fertilizer and insecticide consumption is done to lessen the impact of grape crop operations on environment.

The hotels included in the tour like Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai or Trident Mumbai or Grand Hyatt or Taj Aurangabad employ methods for water conservation. These hotels are committed to the cause of building a sustainable environment by reducing the impact of their daily operations on the environment and improving operational efficiencies, resource conservation, reuse and recycling of key resources

The vehicles used by us during the tours are emission tested as government norms resulting in lesser impact on the environment.

The Impacts of this Trip

In Bhuj, there are some beautiful art shops run by local artisans. These artisans have been following the art since generations. In order to promote the art form and artisans, we can arrange visits to such shops (upon guest request) so that the locals are benefitted.

We use local guides at all places thus offering local employment. We support guides who are local and passionate about offering unique experiences to the guests.

The hotels used by us during the tour like Sula Vineyards offer local employment and donations so that people living in the nearby villages are benefited. The hotel has strict no child labour policy which is a rampant in India. The proceeds of income to such hotels are spent on such CSR initiatives.

We offer drivers a good allowance as per government standards so that they can feel relaxed and not stressed during the tour. This translates to a better guest experience.

In Nashik, we can suggest a visit to old age home in Panchvati area where guests can spend time with elderly and make donations for their well being.
