ABOUT THE TOURS
From the log cabins of coastal fishermen to luxurious city mansions, our insider tours to India, Peru and Sri Lanka give you first-hand experience of the countries.
Authenticity: Our tours are not typical sightseeing excursions, instead we bring together travelers and country in a way that is beneficial to both. With our insider connections, you'll have the unusual opportunity to share meals with local people, visit their homes, and immerse yourself in their life and cultures.
Community projects: Our tours are based around a series of community-managed projects. By working with these projects, we are able to support the livelihoods of the people who need it whether tribal reserves in India or wetland conservation in Sri Lanka.
Relaxing: By getting off the tourist track, your holiday will be truly relaxing. You can unwind in the midst of stunning scenery, whilst absorbing the atmosphere and generosity of local people. Well guide you when you need guidance and leave you in peace, when you need peace
Child friendly: We are parents ourselves and love taking families with children on our trips. Our tours are arranged to be child-friendly.
Folk music, fishing and forest walks: Well take things at your pace, and arrange itineraries based on your preferences. Among other things, there'll be the chance for traditional fishing, forest walks, bonfires, cycling, river baths, sun bathing, yoga and massage, shopping, cooking and lots of relaxing.
Village homes to luxurious mansions: You'll have the chance to stay in luxurious mansions, traditional mud huts, tents in the forests, homely guest houses, stunning beach villas, and as guests in village homes. Accommodation is selected to suit your needs.
Wonderful food: Your hosts will prepare delicious home-cooked food and fresh fruits. Much of the fruit and vegetables are grown locally.
Train, bus and boat: We provide cars, but also take you on trains, buses, boats, horses, bicycles and taxis.
Customized to meed your needs: Although based around specific community-based projects, our tours are customized to meet your preferences and pace.
