Safety Tips

Safety In India  

 
Traveling to any foreign country can be a daunting task. Traveling around India on the other hand has been described as not being for the faint of heart. Well, it may be a little different, but it’s still an amazing place to come and see.
Having said all that, we want you to know that we take your safety very seriously so we want to spend a little bit of time sharing what we do so you feel safe. Having read some of the Varanasi travel reviews of other tour sites, and learning from their mistakes, here are just a few things you can expect from your professional India tour operator.

  • Your guide will arrive at your hotel and check in at the main desk.
  • Your guide will never go to your room even if invited.
  • Your guide will provide you with a government issued ID identifying themselves.
  • Your guide will provide you with a valid India Tour Operator License.
  • Your guide will provide you with his/her cell number.
  • Your guide will never invite you to their private home. 
  •  Your guide will always pick you up and drop you off at a public location.
  • Your guide will never offer to sell you illegal drugs. (You smile, but it’s happened with other companies.)

Again, these are just a few of the things we do so that you can feel comfortable during your trip.


One area that we are paying special attention to in our business model are the needs of solo female tourists in India or all female groups in India. You may be asking yourself the question, “Is it safe for a solo female traveler to go to India?” The answer is, “Yes!”, but we also want you to FEEL safe. If you are a solo female tourist or an all female group traveling to India, we are more than happy to add a second female guide to assist. Since it should not cost you more to FEEL safe, we of course, do not pass any cost on to you. If you would like more information about this service, please contact our United States, Travel Advisor.
