Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Egypt family adventure & culture holiday


Waste: Prior to departing on your trip every traveller receives detailed information on travelling responsibly. A section of this includes information on what you can do prior to departure-particularly in terms of waste reduction. We encourage travellers to remove all unnecessary packaging from items they take with them -particularly toiletry packaging-as recycling facilities in Egypt are minimal. During your trip your Tour Leader will re-emphasise the importance of not leaving rubbish anywhere and will advise on appropriate waste disposal. As a company we have had some correspondence with the Egyptian Government on litter pollution along the Nile.

Water: any knowledge of Egyptian history or, travel to Egypt, can only serve to crystallise the importance of water conservation. The Nile is crucial to the country. The majority of conurbations and agricultural regions are situated along the banks of the Nile and it played a major role in the life of the Ancient Egyptians. Our detailed pre-departure information sent to every one of our travellers prior to departure contains detailed information on conserving water and our Tour Leaders will reinforce this information during your trip. Travellers are encouraged, for example, to bring a water bottle from home; to reuse hotel towels; use shower water sparingly etc.


Friends and Neighbours: a foundation for all our trips is that we try to use small, local suppliers whenever possible so that our trips benefit people at a grass roots level. All the hotels we use are small locally run establishments-often run by families. We recommend and use similarly run restaurants and always use local guides.

In Luxor, for example, the Donkey ride around the West Bank villages is organised by Taayeb. He sources the donkeys from friends and family in his local community. These donkey owners are mainly small scale farmers and would not normally benefit from tourist income, but this money helps support their families.

In Aswan, there is an opportunity to spend the evening, and have dinner with a local Nubian family. Again, this family would not normally benefit from tourist income, but the money they gain from this helps to support the family. Often, one of their neighbours pops in to to do henna tattoos-spreading the income even further.

Volunteering & charity: As a company we support two charities in Egypt. In Cairo, we make a regular monthly financial contribution to a school for Sudanese Refugee children-the Sudanese Development Community Project. This school receives no state funding and without it these children would have no access to formal education. We have also set up a Sponsor-A-Child scheme to support the school, have donated a variety of educational materials and organise fundraising events in the UK.

In Luxor, we support, by regular monthly financial contribution, the Sunshine Project - a Home, care, shelter, education, recreation and health facilities to abandonned, orphaned or needy children.
