Elephants and animal welfare




We at India Authentic Tours are a small family run business that work from the heart. At India Authentic Tours our customers wellbeing is paramount, therefore our priority is the safety and wellbeing of all our customers whilst touring India with us. 
We at India Authentic Tours also have very high ethical beliefs when it comes to animal welfare, therefore we will never offer our customers and animal related activities, e.g. Elephant rides, Camel rides, visits to Zoo’s, visit to logging farms or any other activities where the animals welfare is not paramount.
