CULTURE AND NATURE TOURS
India’s vast cultural and natural diversity has always been a secret of its attraction. From Taj Mahal to Thanjavur, Thar desert to tiger sanctuaries, our tours celebrate this rich abundance of culture and nature through immersive local experiences and off-the-beaten track perspectives that are authentic, engaging and equally rewarding to all our visitors.
These include cultural and leisure tours around Taj Mahal and north India, Rajasthan and Gujarat, Kerala and south India; wildlife tours across India’s national parks, sanctuaries and tiger reserves and well-researched, specialist experiential tours such as the ancient buddhist pilgrimage trails, student exchange programs, home stays, yoga and ayurveda retreats etc.
With a proprietary network of ground logistics, operational bases and preferred-access partnerships with hotels and resorts across India, KVT offers complete end-to-end destination services from itinerary planning and research to full-service ground-handling arrangements including hotel and travel reservations, trained multi-language guides and support staff, transportation, cycling and camping gear, obtaining regulatory permissions, clearances for professional climbing expeditions.
Our decades of experiences, niche adventure expertise, innovative products and quality of service are thus well-established and recognised with three National Tourism Awards from the Government of India for best adventure tour operator and one for outstanding performance as best inbound tour operator.
KVT was founded in 1985 by Mr. Mohan Tickoo, a seasoned traveler and ardent supporter of sustainable tourism practices and policies, which have been integrated into all aspect of our product development and ground logistics. Both Mohan and KVT are directly involved in various sustainability initiatives and community programs in India both independently and in close co-operation with our domain partner, Friends of Conservation, UK.

Together we aim to build a tourism industry that brings pleasure to all those who travel with it, a future to the places and people that provide it and value and responsibility to all of us involved in supplying it.
We are proud that our business in partnership with the wider Indian tourism industry serves an important role as a positive economic driver providing commercial benefit and financial impetus to the communities and areas we operate in. Whilst recognising the importance and need for this economic benefit, we are also sensitively aware of the ecological and social impact of our activities on these communities and local environments.
As a result it is always our endeavour to evolve and balance our operations in a manner that maximises the positives while reducing any potential impact.
