Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Turkey 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 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 the correct manner.

Energy saving is strictly encouraged by asking travelers to turn off all air conditioning, lights and electronics when leaving their hotel rooms. Littering at any of the sites should also be avoided. If they are unable to find any trash cans, we encourage them to dispose of empty water bottles or cans in the trash bag provided in the vehicles.

Pammukale , Capadocia and Mount Nemrut are seen as natural wonders. We encourage our travelers to treat these sites as such, meaning that they should not intentionally damage the landscapes, structures and surroundings.

The cost of fuel is very high in Turkey, compared to other major cities. Although it isn't always practical to walk from one area to the other, we encourage walking tours through the major sites in Istanbul. Not only does it save a few pennies to the travelers, it also reduces our carbon footprint.

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 belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.

We promise to support the local community of every destination we take our travelers to. 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 that country. 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 our host destinations. 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 tour.

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.

Turkey is still recovering from the massive earth quake that struck in 2011. There are a number of donation organizations. We attempt to be in contact with these to establish a point of communication between the organizations and our travelers who wish to donate money.

Reviews of Turkey small group tour

You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays.

A bit disappointing really

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


The balloon ride in Cappadocia, closely followed by the visit to Heiropolis, a
fascinating site.

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


Be prepared for long coach journeys, but these were broken up by several interesting stops on the way.

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


Local people definitely benefited from the tourism both on our trip and from the many others, obviously on the same circuit as us.
I didn't feel there was much emphasis on reducing environmental impact. In fact, we travelled in a full size coach even though there were only 19 of us, but I suppose that is too many for a mini-bus. And the ability to be able to spread out during the long journeys was much appreciated.
As for conservation, most of the sites were carefully managed so that damage caused by the hoards of visitors was kept to a minimum.

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


We have travelled with another small group holiday company for the last 10 years, so I was a little bit nervous of using a different company. However, my fears were quickly put to rest as this is one of the most interesting holidays I have been on. I particularly appreciated the use of headsets as we would have had difficulty hearing our guide in the throngs of tourists. The mix of nationalities and age groups was also welcome. Our guide, Perihan Asan, was
very informative and lively and made the holiday so enjoyable.

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


I loved the balloon ride over Capodocchia, and found Galipoli very moving. I have probably spelled both incorrectly, but not feeling very well today, my excuse! I also found the whirling dervishes very spiritual, though it was but for tourists...the four ancient sites were all beautiful.

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


Make sure you have plenty of sleep before you leave your home!

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


I would hope all three.

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


I thought it ticked all the boxes as they say - looking at the atlas beforehand it was obvious we were covering a large mileage in 7 days on the road, and we were all tired with the long days, but that was what we had bought into. All interesting places to visit and, having only visited Istanbul before (twice) my eyes were opened to the expansion of Turkey's economy and aspirations enormously, which was most enlightening. Delightul, friendly people, good clean quiet hotels, buffets became boring but, again, that is what we had paid for, no more. A decent cappucino would have been nice, did find one in the end - made by an Aussie trained barista!

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


Cappadocia and balloon flight.

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


Take euro's and take universal sink plug.

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


Yes we supported local businesses and co-operatives.

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


Excellent for travel but well below average for accommodation. (star ratings not
reflected on services).
