“When you see a sponsor like the New York State Division of Tourism proudly hand over an award to a tiny Gujarati business like Kutch Adventures, it makes you realise what responsible tourism is about. We are all responsible for making this a better industry.
Kutch Adventures was created out of a drive to revive the desert landscape of Gujarat, India, after its destruction in the 2001 earthquake, one of India’s worst natural disasters. The community-focused business was founded by a local resident, Kuldip Gadhvi five years ago leading tours and hosting homestays for tourists.”

Mentioned under “Inspiring Stories” on Incredible India Tourist Facilitator (IITF) Certification Programme is a digital initiative of Ministry of Tourism (MoT), Govt. of India for the citizens of India to become a part of the booming Tourism Industry. It is an online programme where one can learn about tourism at their own time, space, path and pace. The successful completion of this programme would enable the learner to become a Certified Tourist Facilitator of Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India.
“Travellers to this corner of India need to be extra sensitive as the region is ecologically fragile and tourism can seem intrusive with the local communities feeling like they are on display. Which is why going with a small operator like Kuldip Gadhvi’s Kutch Adventures is helpful. Kuldip plays host and guide for each tour he conducts in the region, ensuring visitors get an authentic local experience where they get to meet and interact with genuine artisans, cattle herders and villagers. At the same time, he ensures that the guests appreciate the traditional way of living and the interaction is respectful.”>>>

“Being rather backpacker style I had never dealt with a “guide” and I had some doubts ….
Luckily I came across the best guide, Kuldip Gadhvi. I can now say that I never could not have done all these meetings, especially in such a short time (5-6 days), if Kuldip was not in the game.” Read More>>>
“Kuldip is a great host! As a first time visitor to India, Kuldip and his family have been extremely welcoming and made my trip beyond pleasant. His home is clean and inviting and an honest introduction to ‘desert life’ India style! His knowledge of Bhuj’s geography and rich history is excellent and he is a great tour guide as well as host. When in Bhuj I would certainly visit his home stay again!” Read More>>>
