See here some feedback from the previous participants:
Mr. Laurige Boyer, Founder and Managing Director, Eastern Routes: “The Sustainable Tourism Tutorial organized by TOFTigers came with an exciting and refreshing brief that engaged us from the start. It resonated with our ideologies and gave us a chance to share an example of a sustainable travel itinerary showcasing responsible tourism in Northeast India. With a focus on slow travel, it helped us design an itinerary that offers a much more immersive experience and a deeper connection to the land and its people. We thank Ritu, Julian, and Shabarni for their invaluable inputs and tips that helped in refining the itinerary with details that made all the difference.”
Anna Eapen , Manager Sales @ Kalypso Adventures P Ltd. : “The Toftiger Tutorial on Sustainable tour practices provided an insight into the responsibilities and action plans that every tour operator needs to have in order to give back to the environment we belong. A National Award-winning company for the best tour operator, Kalypso Adventures is the pioneer in adventure tours in South India for the last 20 years. Our tours have always been focused on the environment. In addition to this awareness, the tutorial helped us to branch out our thoughts and expand our ideas about Responsible tourism on its different aspects such as economic, environmental and socio-cultural sustainability. TOFTigers has definitely inspired us to customise an itinerary to include more eco-friendly practices that are aimed at achieving Sustainable Tourism.”
