Responsible tourism: Vietnam tailor made tour, Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi

Environment

On all of our private and small group journeys our local guides and Western tour leaders are on hand to help clients reduce their impact on the local environment. As with almost all travel it is the little things which really help the local environment.

On a typical journey we can advise on how to shop ethically, like avoiding rare produce or goods that may have been sourced from endangered or at risk environments. In more rural areas we can guard against any potentially damaging actions to the local environment and where possible we try to use environmentally conscious hotels and home-stays, like Topas Eco Lodge in Sapa (we can add this extension to this journey) as well as home-stays in the Mekong Delta and Mai Chau.

We also issue clients with a 'tread lightly' guide that is filled with information about how best to limit their environmental impact. Not being a 'big group' operator our environmental travel footprint is always smaller. We also aim to use modern and more efficient vehicles wherever possible; this includes our small buses and private cars.

Moreover, having offices on the ground across Asia means that we are able better manage our environmental impact, and those of our partners in destinations where we do not have a direct presence.

As a company, we work with Cleaner Climate carbon consultants to fully offset emissions from our Australia and UK offices. The funds from the offsets support clean energy projects in Thailand, India, and China. Moreover, as a local and international operator we are in a unique position that allows us to better mitigate our effects on the local environment. Examples include using modern vehicles that reduce carbon emissions, avoiding poorly run hotels and educating our local guides on environmental issues.

As an operator we now offer carbon offset on 12 of our best-selling journeys in Asia, including Vietnam. With this program we will offset the carbon emissions for every passenger on every departure, so you can travel guilt-free, knowing we’ve got your carbon footprint covered. We’ll cover all carbon emissions during your trip including hotels and transport, but do not cover the emissions from your international flight.

Community

Some of the charities we work with is Vietnam are Streets International, The Spiral Foundation, KOTO, Loreto Foundation, Creativity for Humanity and the Child Safe Program. We can arrange visits to some of our responsible travel partners in Vietnam - just let us know and we can try to include this into you tailor-made plans!

We have a record of financially supporting a number of not-for-profit organisations working in Asia, and of responding generously to humanitarian crises. Our Responsible Travel/corporate giving for the 2011-12 financial year is AUD $25,000.

As always, it is the little things that really help. In Vietnam, we try and dine away from large hotels, instead frequenting smaller family-owned or charity run restaurants. Our guides are on hand to assist with this side or responsible travel throughout!

As well as having offices in Australia, the United Kingdom and North America, we have offices in several cities in Indochina. Our direct presence in Asia means that we are much better able to control the content of our itineraries, the actions of our suppliers, and the style of our Small Group Journey and tailor-made travel arrangements. In short, our offices in Asia give us leverage in implementing our responsible travel policy.
