I’m not really one for group tours. I like to be in charge of my own adventures. But when you are travelling with a purpose beyond just ticking off the sights, sometimes there is a time and a place for a knowledgeable guide and a tribe of travellers with a passion. Exploring the Golden Triangle of India (Delhi, Agra & Jaipur) with Hands on Journeys was one of those times.
I am going to be totally up front here. I first joined Hands on Journeys in Cambodia/Vietnam last year volunteering my time as a photographer to support their new venture and again on this trip. I didn’t ‘have’ to write this review but I am doing so because I truly believe in this project. So many people get in to ‘Voluntourism’ for the wrong reasons, but Simla, the founder of the company did so for all the right reasons. After surviving a brain hemorrhage a truly responsible company was born which garners my full suppor tand I hope yours if you consider exploring this part of the world.
