There is some kind of magic that happens when you’re in India; the climate, the people, the warm welcome, the happiness in every person, the culture – it’s simply inspiring. On top of that; having a group of friendly, thoughtful organizers guiding me through the program made my time volunteering with Rainbow Voluntours one of the most memorable moments in my life.
If anyone reading this is considering becoming a volunteer, don’t hesitate, become a volunteer. It will be the most rewarding experience and adventure of your life. I assure you that you will have a vital impact on the community, the place and the children.
I would recommend Voluntours without hesitation. Well organized and hassle free adventure. You get help and guidance with everything you need. Kerala was my destination. Safe, beautiful and very friendly. Just do it and have an adventure of your life!

When my partner and I first arrived at Kerala we had no idea what to expect out of the next two weeks. Having no experience in teaching made us both extremely anxious. We started off by being introduced to our beautiful home stay family and all the staff on board at Rainbow Voluntours. At the time we had no idea that we would make such close-knit and long lasting friendships with all these new people. Rainbow Voluntours most certainly provides a personal and almost homely experience along with the volunteering. There was always coffee catch ups on Princess Street after a day of teaching or long chats about the different lifestlyes and cultures with your second family. All of these aspects helped to ease nerves, and we honestly began to feel very at home after just a few days.
Volunteering at the schools was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Once again the friendships you create are irreplaceable. Admittedly, the first few days were scary, in the sense that my partner and I were only 18&20 yrs old and we were teaching women and children a language that was not their first. However the persistence and willingness of Indians is not to be tested. Each of our classes put in 100% and naturally we became very personal with everyone and these women and children taught us much more than a language. We came out of this experience with more than we had ever anticipated. It can’t be put into words just how much we learnt from volunteering. Ever aspect of our lives and mindset has changed.
Rainbow Voluntours provides something so different. You are given ample opportunities to explore Kerala, learn about the different Indian cultures, try amazing Indian home cooking, make new friends and to make a small change in the lives of so many. We can’t describe to you just how wonderful our volunteering experience was and we owe it to the people at Rainbow Voluntours. So thank you! And to anyone looking for a genuine life changing experience, look no further! I promise you, its worth it.

This was my first time volunteering and I felt so well looked after by all the staff. Being in a homestay was daunting to begin with, however once I had gotten over my jet lag, I realized it was the best way to see and experience life in India, especially Fort Kochi. My family were amazing and looked after me like one of their own.
The teaching experience was second to none. I was overwhelmed by the respect and politeness all the children have, which made it some much easier to work with them, even with the language barrier. The amazing thing about the schools I visited was that all the children are like little sponges, they absorb everything you say, teach and do! It's quite outstanding how much they gain from just a small conversation in the playground or in the class room.
So in general if you are questioning whether you want to volunteer and you don't know what company to go with, it has the be Rainbow VolunTours. You will be well looked after, gain an immense experience and make friends for life!!!

The trip was one of the best trips we've done. Machu travel did a great job from logistics on airport, bus transfers, hotels are in the center of town, excursions were very organized, staff were there for us to take care of our needs, tour guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you!
