Hotels and train scoop key awards

An Indian hotel chain employing people with disabilities and a heritage train in Ecuador are joint gold winners of this year's World Resposible Tourism awards.

Lemon Tree Hotels believes in giving everybody a chance at employment and offers 25 per cent of staff places to people who'd otherwise find it difficult to work.

Tren Ecuador runs from Guayaquil to Quito but takes passengers off the train and into local cafes, haciendas and rainforests, spreading the value of tourism throughout the community.
