Reviews for Family holiday with volunteering in India


review 19 Sep 2016

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

Seeing the enthusiasm of the children and how welcome we felt at the schools. Feeling connected to the local community and other volunteers whilst staying in the comfortable volunteers house instead of a hotel. Also the delicious authentic Indian food cooked by a lovely local lady at the house.

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

Make time for a bit of relaxation before the project and after as the travelling is very tiring and we would have liked to have had more time to spend in India. Make sure you read all the helpful teaching tips that are sent beforehand so that you are properly prepared.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We do feel that our holiday benefited local people by helping the local teachers, supporting local shops and businesses.

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

It was an amazing experience to work together as a family whilst teaching at the local schools. We all loved the experience and the people from the volunteering organisations were so helpful and kind and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely do a volunteering holiday of this kind again.

You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
