It is our continuous enterprise at the India Tour Makers to practice Responsible Tourism and to adoptive greater awareness of it among itinerants all around the world. As part of our philosophy, we safeguard that our trips are eco-friendly tour packages that do not harm or disrupt the local culture or climate, or damage the ecology of the region in any way. We also cheer our itinerants to be responsible travellers whose presence is not detrimental to the local culture of a region in any way.
Responsible Tourism involves that tourism organizations look after the destinations, their attractions and resources - and safeguard that they are not spoiled either for local people or for future visitors. It also involves teaching a caring attitude towards the environment as well as providing employment opportunities to local people in the form of direct employment or by engaging them in supply and provision activities.
Some of the other activities that can be assumed by tour operators are the use of hotels that pursue good environmental practices such as preserving water and minimizing waste. Use of locally owned hotels and transport companies which provide employment and income for the local population. Hiring of local guides. Providing customers with key details/information such as tips on how to dress, how to say a few words in the local language and important customs of the destinations of India. Tour operators could also help by supporting local community & conservation projects.
At the India Tour Makers we inspire our clienteles to think about the impact they may be having on the surrounds and people that inhabit them. We suggest they reduce the use of plastic cups and use locally available terracotta cups, and re-use plastic bags or drinking bottles. We also propose them to dispose their garbage thoughtfully, by not leaving it around and by preferably burying all recyclable matter. Courtesy and common sense are also advisable when traveling. We also request our customers to avoid buying products that further endanger threatened species and habitats.
Our tours and travel packages have an ecologically aware and caring approach and we ensure that our presence or activities do not disturb the local culture, in any way.
Travel in India with us will be an biodegradable experience.
