A specialist team, based in India

We are very proud of our sales office in India, where a small, dedicated  team looks after guest reservations, and is experienced in putting together detailed travel itineraries. Members of the team make frequent trips to our communities, both in India and beyond. They speak good English, and our guests really enjoy discussing their trips with them. Gauri Pawar joined us in 2014 and is in charge of guest reservations.

In the communities, we make sure that everyone with a role in the village tourism enterprises receives good training, and this is much appreciated by all involved. There is ongoing monitoring of how the benefits are spread around the households, and investment is put into ensuring guesthouses are maintained and improved.

In all of our work, the Village Ways Partnership supports activities, bringing international expertise in a variety of fields. The Partnership is headed by Manisha Pande, who has led the Mumbai team since its formation and now leads all of Village Ways. Manisha recently flew to London to collect our latest award in the World Responsible Tourism Awards. Please read more about the Partnership here.



 

 

"The information and help which we got from you and your team, before we even left the UK, was second to none, and we felt very reassured that we were in good hands."
