OUR PHILOSOPHY

 Our philosophy of holidaying and travel:

  • We try not to offer all inclusive packages to our guests and encourage using local transport, where ever possible and eat a meal in a local restaurant, take part in an activity at the destination that is offered by a local community group etc      .
  • We don’t limit your choice of hotel to one or two at each destination but we have a selection of hotels, most of them that are locally owned, so that the money goes to a local entrepreneur and hence your stay there contributes to local economic development from tourism.
  • Around 92% amount of the tour cost goes directly to the service providers and hence we ensure a ‘fair’ flow of  revenue.
  • Our cab drivers are mostly owner driven vehicles. We have had excellent feedbacks about our drivers and the safe journey in their hands. 
  • We hire guides wherever necessary, who are locals – trained and accredited by government authorities.
  • We believe that to get the real pulse of the people and places you may also take the rail and road route once you are in India. It doesn’t take more than a day or an overnight train to travel between various destinations in South India. This not only reduce your carbon footprints but more than that it helps you to measure the rhythm of India.
  • We subscribe to concepts of sustainable tourism like responsible tourism, fair trade tourism, community based tourism, ethical holidaying.     
  • It is not easy doing all the small things above to make a positive change to the manner in which tourism is operated currently. But on the larger framework of making tourism beneficial to the local community, to reduce the negative impacts and making tourism sustainable , along with our aim of making your holiday a meaningful experience, lets us put our time and effort together.!
