No News No Shoes is a UK based Tour Operator organising specialist holidays to the Maldives, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Indonesia. It is owned and managed by Christine Aldridge who is passionate about travel. Together with her husband and two sons, Chris has travelled to many areas of the world in addition to the places that we promote. This is very much a small, family business where personal service and attention to detail really do matter. No News No Shoes is a business born out of a passion for these wonderful countries. Our aim is to provide you with the best quality, personalised holiday that will leave you with the same passion for these fabulous destinations.
Sustainable and Responsible Tourism
Here at No News No shoes we are committed to responsible/sustainable tourism and fair trade. We are proud that most of the accommodation we use follows sustainable practices (eg solar power, recycling and plastic bottle avoidance). Many have very strong environmental policies and have won ‘green’ awards (eg CGH Earth, Malabar House Escapes, The Dune group etc). Our fair trade policies include paying our suppliers promptly and not blocking rooms in the hope that we will get bookings and then releasing them at short notice.

We deliver a bespoke, high quality service at competitive prices compared to companies of a similar nature.

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.
For those who prefer to travel in the company of others, we organise a few small group tours to selected places in India. Our group size is always small, around 10-15 people and will include an element of off the beaten track experiences in addition to classic sightseeing locations. Let us know if the trip you want isn’t featured and we’ll try and set it up!
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.
