About No News No Shoes
No News No Shoes is a UK Tour Operator specialising in holidays to India, the Maldives and other selected locations in Asia. 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 itineraries 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. All our holidays are individually tailored to suit your needs - we listen to your needs and craft itineraries accordingly, guided by our personal experiences.
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.
In 2020, No News No Shoes acquired Kerala Connections and India Connections which are now trading names of No News No Shoes. Kerala Connections was founded in 1998 and were the first UK tour operator to specialise in Kerala and South India. They have been offering the whole of India since 2001. When the directors of Kerala Connections Ltd wanted to retire - merging with a like-minded company was the perfect solution. Our combined team has a vast range of experience of almost every corner of India and has travelled extensively to the other destinations in the No News No Shoes portfolio including more than 70 resorts in the Maldives.
All holidays booked with No News No Shoes are financially protected as required under UK law. Flight inclusive packages are protected under our ATOL (number 6926) and non flight inclusive packages are protected under our financial failure insurance policy.
Above all, we provide all of our customers with a high quality, personal service. You can rely on us to craft the right itinerary, appropriate to your needs, deliver excellent in country service and a full support service should you encounter any difficulties. In the light of the recent Coronavirus pandemic, this is extremely important. We are delighted and proud of the number of clients who have commended us on how well they have been taken care of during this challenging period.
