Holiday type

Small group family holiday

This is a 'small group family adventure' - typically you will join several other families and travel in a group of approx. 16 people. The trips are great value and a great way for you and your children to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of time to yourselves. Please check with the operator to confirm the minimum age for this trip

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
We consciously strive to reduce wastage and minimise the environmental impact of our small group trips by asking customers and staff to travel with a reusable water bottle, to reuse towels and sheets and turn off lights and water when not in use. Plastic waste in India is already a huge problem, we aim to minimise adding to this by refilling water bottles and using material shopping bags rather than plastic.

As well as being low impact, cycling is a great way to get closer to the local way of life as you can easily stop and visit offbeat places, chat to the locals… so it’s friendly and environmentally friendly! Stop by local non touristic tea stall and other eateries on the way helps local small village shops and their business.

Pedal power is one of the most sustainable and lowest impact forms of transport so it’s a great way to keep your carbon footprint (and waist measurement!) low.

By using small locally owned hotels we also reduce our environmental impact as waste and energy usage will be much lower than in larger hotels.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

In Rajasthan we stay at locally owned and run hotels, and recommend local restaurants, meaning a more authentic experience for the traveller and direct economic benefit for the communities visited. As on any cycling trip there are many stops for refreshments, these are all at local cafes and small entrepreneurial stands along the route allowing us to support local communities as we pass through. We also stop at vibrant markets where you can purchase traditional gifts and crafts.

Cycling has a unique way of enabling interaction with locals which in turn can give you an insight and understanding of their culture and lifestyle.


We visit Ranthambore and Keoladeo National Parks who employ and train their guides from the local area and tribal community . People who once made a living by illegal operations in the forest are now paid to take an active part in its protection. Our visit helps fund this project and our contribution directly helps forest conservation and community welfare.

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.
