At the time of writing, Wikitravel:Activity listings#Tour listings states: "Tours can be listed on Wikitravel as long as they constitute a value-added activity. If a traveller could fulfill the substance of the tour on their own, the tour should not be listed..."

There are also some additional qualifications besides the "value-added" part, such as having a "real world" office with a phone number and an address in the location where the tour operates.

It is for those reasons that I believe this "Do" listing qualifies:

  • Jugaadus tours, Above Salon 16, near Kalra Hospital, Ajit Nagar, Sultanwind Rd ( ☎ +91 856 880 0020 offers a number of different tours to help you explore the holy city. Perhaps the only one that you could not do the substance of the tour under your own steam is their Village Tour, organized to give visitors a taste of traditional ways of life and culture. Visitors will be taught things like how to milk a cow the Indian way and ride on a traditional bull cart. By special arrangement, they will also see common farming practices, visit a local primary school and observe a village embroidery workshop. 5h duration, INR300 per person, not including tips for the guide.

I went to the link the site has multiple tours and hosts a hostel booking service as well. The village walking tour would be fine as a tour or staying at the hostel would be fine under the 'Sleep' section, one not both. We can't host multiple listings for the same company. Please see our Don't tout and Wikitravel:External links policies. IBcaldera (talk) 15:16, 9 December 2014 (EST)
I was the editor that removed the non-compliant tour listings.
I believe that Jugaadus run their own backpackers hostel as opposed to an aggregation service for a variety of other accommodation options.
Previously we have been very clear that we should not host different listings for the SAME business in different sections (unless there are truly exceptional reasons) eg, the same business should not be listed once under "Eat" and again under "Drink" where it's the same premises. However, here there are affectively 2 independent businesses - an accommodation business and a tour business. I hope that a representative of either of the businesses will write here to clarify this... -- 15:57, 9 December 2014 (EST)
