Description of Golden Triangle with Uttar Pradesh holiday
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
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.
Ganges is one of the most polluted rivers in India. In order to avoid pollution in the river, the guide association, Ministry of Tourism and our company constantly educate the guides and drivers to have proper social hygiene measure like reducing litter, utilization of garbage bins etc. We also ask them to educate the guests who tend to litter during the tour.
PeopleVaranasi is home to Ganges – the holiest river in India. The region is know for its silks manufacturing units that are world renowned. We encourage our guests, who wish to do local shopping, to visit these stores so that the local art forms are promoted, creating employment opportunities for the locals.
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.
There are many foundations that work in Jaipur and Delhi like Mother Teresa Foundation, Anokhi, CRY etc. We can arrange a visit to these foundation for guests who wish to volunteer or donate.
