Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

We did a 12 day comprehensive custom tour of Ladakh. We had great time. The trip was well organised and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The guide was excellent and the driver was good especially in the roads in remote areas. Safe Hands and Rohit were available when we needed them.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

One of the most amazing experiences of my life. In 2002, through the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School, I hiked from Germany to Italy and sailed from Germany to Portugal. Receiving my pin was something I will never forget. I still think of my experience everyday as it guides me personally, professionally and spiritually through life. Always head in the right direction.

I went on a 14 day Outward Bound on the Pacific Crest in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. It was in August of 1986 and I was living in New York City. My father had died earlier in the year. Outward Bound was one of the best things I've done in my life: I was physically and emotionally challenged, but the beauty of the night sky, the variety of flowers and animals was unsurpassed. I loved the rock climbing and the solo. I liked
Our group and the leaders were amazing. I'll never ever forget it!!!

I did the Southwest Outward Bound out of Santa Fe, NM in 1976 I think. Course S-56, with Jared Haynes as Course Director. We were in the Gila Wilderness and there was a "solo" section where we were put down near water, with a pencil and our little book, and we had to survive for a week - a plane flew over us every other day to see that we were ok -- we had orange bunting we were to set out if we were not. That week of "solo" was a pivotal time in my life, of introspection and of course of one-ness with nature. I saw a black bear drink from the stream I had dug my "cover" near and we just watched one another, each going our separate ways after an hour of mutual assessment. I'll never forget that time, or the team building (map reading and hiking exercises the OB leaders made us do for ourselves. It has stayed with me all my life and I think it is one of the best learning experiences a kid can have. I know contemplating all my adolescent issues to the backdrop of the Milky Way at night taught me the triviality of my concerns and the transience of our short human lives relative to the Universe. Thanks Outward Bound!

      About Outward Bound

      Founded 75 years ago on the philosophy of education being used for the development of character and the intellect.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Rather than a traditional travel company, Outward Bound’s focus is on outdoor education for all ages. These tours, which are essentially made up of classes and mini challenges help students develop technical outdoor skills, build their confidence, and create a supportive atmosphere where they can learn how teamwork and endurance contribute to everyday life. In keeping with their strong education focus, instead of choosing a tour, you choose a course.

      Who Travels With Them?

      A majority of their tours are specialized for younger student aged travelers between 18-20. Though many of their tours are also geared toward college aged adults and above. They also have tours specially created for veterans and middle schoolers.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Their classes take place primarily in the United States, but they also travel to India, South America, and Central America.

      How Does it Work?

      Outdoor education programs are offered in a number of different themes - from backpacking trips, mountaineering trips, whitewater rafting trips, canoeing trips, dog sledding expeditions, and sailing trips. Outward Bound is school based - they have 11 schools across the United States.

      Why Travel With Them?

      They are dedicated to providing “transformative learning experiences” that help build a strong character foundation in young teens and adults. For companies, schools, and parents who want to encourage leadership and confidence through healthy, positive, and active group activities this is the perfect company.
