Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Israel holidays, small group tour

Environment

How our company is making a difference:
We know that making the positive difference we aim to achieve will not be an easy task. However, our enthusiasm and commitment towards our travel responsibility mission is far stronger than any obstacles. We believe that in order to achieve any objective, the company has to have accurate policies and procedures for the employees and the guests to follow in order to reach our goal.

We have decided that the environment is a major component of any local community and any negative effect on the environment would directly have an impact on the lives of the inhabitants of the local community. Therefore, we have drawn up a strict environmental protection policy that all our employees and travelers have to abide by. For example, we recycle empty ink cartridges. A company collects them and disposes of them in the correct manner.

Israel is a country which prides itself with some of the most significant holy sites in the world. Our tour guides and tour leaders instruct and encourage travellers to not pick off relics or elements of remembrance. We also encourage them to stay within the paths that were set out for visitors to walk on in order to sustain the environments surrounding the holy sites.

For us, Responsible Travel is the only way to travel

Community

Throughout our long tourism business journey, exceeding 15 years of travel operation in the Middle East, we have succeeded in establishing strong links with the communities we are dealing with in the host destinations.

We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both the travelers and the local community gaining benefits. We benefit the local communities we visit using a wide scope of activities that have a positive impact on the local economy, directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belong to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people in local communities offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and cultural exchanges that take place between the locals and our travelers during our tours.

We promise to support the local community in Israel. We will do this by employing local guides, using local handicraft shops and recommend shops to our travelers so that their holiday spending contributes to the people of Israel. Furthermore, we provide each traveler with a tipping guide. By doing this we set a concept of tipping and gratuity for every person who will offer a form of service to the traveler.

We have also considered the social aspect of the local community and how to respect the customs and traditions of the inhabitants helping us operate our tours. We always provide our guests with all the information needed to understand the community they are visiting and we create valuable opportunities for the travelers and the locals to mingle and exchange ideas and thoughts.

The first objective is to operate our tours in the most perfect way possible. Our second objective, but not second in importance, is to benefit the local community, protect the environment, and have a positive social impact on the inhabitants living in Israel. One of the ways of doing this is to inform and educate our travelers on the cultures of the destinations. By doing this we aim to create a form of respect between the travelers and the local citizens who they will face along their tours.

We educate all our staff on the real life situations of each destination. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and threats that they may face. By creating long lasting relationships with our local ground handlers, we are able to establish what needs the community has and through their information we can inform our travelers what they can contribute to the local community from their home countries.

In Israel, travelers are encouraged not to tempt children or any locals with food and sweets. The culture has to be respected at all times. Travellers are encouraged to always take care of any racial and religious comments. Israel has been in political conflict with a number of countries and people may get themselves into troublesome situations if they make any racial or religious comments.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


No one thing stands out because it was all good.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be prepared to do plenty of walking. Get Israeli currency before leaving home.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


No.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent. The only downside was the Rent-a-Guide Mercedes bus which was cramped, noisy and lacking in shock absorbers.

Masada & Ben Shean

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


See if you can have Hilik as a guide

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Benefited local people, yes.
Environmental impact, probably neutral at best, but any travel is bad!
Supported conservation, yes as with out visitors they won't conserve, that is clear.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Very, very, very good.

Regarding the stars below, I am not sure about reborn, or the best I have ever been on, but it is one that I would definitely not wanted to have missed and I will recommend it to friends.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


There were lots of memorable moments. We visited many sites spanning about 5000 years of history. Our guide was very knowledgable and aimed to bring history to life with clear explanations without getting bogged down with minutiae. He was able to answer questions for those who wanted more information. I liked the varied mix of people in the group with eight different countries represented. Just picking out a few hightlights: the boat journey on the Sea of Galilee on a beautiful warm and sunny Spring morning listening to Amazing Grace on the music system. Staying at a kibbutz also very interesting as was watching/taking part in baptisms at the River Jordan.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


This was a very busy tour visiting many sights. It's very much a 'taster' of what Israel has to offer rather than an in-depth study. Be prepared for some long days with a lot of travelling. A sun hat is essential and drink lots of water. At some of the religious sites it's necessary to have knees and shoulders covered and no low cut tops. This applies to men and women. In some places men need to wear head covering. Most places in the main tourist areas would accept US dollars as well as shekles.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The tour was provided by an Israeli company using jewish, palastinian and arabic guides and drivers so presumably the money stayed within the country. We had opportunities to shop in local shops and the suk and eat in local cafes and restaurants. Where possible we were encouraged to stay on designated paths to avoid excess damage to surrounding areas.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


This was a comprehensive tour with a predominately christian bias. There was much to see and experience. My only real critisism is that it tries to pack too much into too little time. I would have liked longer at many of the sites. I think the tour would benefit from being a few days longer which could possibly give the opportunity to visit a synagogue and a mosque.
