About No News No Shoes

No News No Shoes is a UK Tour Operator specialising in holidays to India, the Maldives and beyond. Established in 2004, we are passionate about the destinations that we offer and have extensive personal experience through numerous visits to all of our destinations. We believe that to really understand a destination, you need to go beyond the major sightseeing attractions and experience the soul of the place. That’s why our itineries will always include an experience or activity that we feel connects you with the place and people. This may be a walking tour amongst the ghats and markets of Kolkata with a local photographer, a chance to explore a historic neighbourhood in Mumbai with our great friend and resident Mumbaikar before enjoying a home cooked meal, or a visit to the fascinating outdoor laundry in Kochi. We are ATOL registered for your financial protection. 

We are supported in country by a team of local experts that we have worked with for several years and can rely on to ensure your trip runs smoothly. We know this because we personally test a range of service providers before selecting who we work with. They will also provide any local assistance should you need it. We have a small team of staff in the UK who will support you at every stage and at a time to suit you – we genuinely strive to deliver the best holiday experience you have ever had.
