Conocer el Norte y el Sur de la India en este viaje ha sido una experiencia inolvidable. Es un viaje en el que te acerca a la India en todas sus facetas. Te permite conocer tanto su cultura, tradiciones, filosofía y gentes de una forma muy cercana como observar con tus propios ojos el gran impacto que están haciendo en diversas comunidades locales. Gracias a ellos la India es ahora un país muy especial para mí! :) Covadonga Garcia Calvo.

Esta experiencia permite además de visitar las partes más turísticas conocer proyectos locales muy interesantes. Para nosotros, visitar proyectos del propio país aportó un valor muy grande al viaje ya que en cualquier viaje organizado no tienes la oportunidad de vivir una experiencia tan auténtica.
