Responsible tourism: Jordan holiday on a shoestring

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.

The desert area of Wadi Rum has to be conserved. Travellers are encouraged not to dispose of their waste while in the desert areas. They are also encouraged not to pick any plants that grow in the rocks or on the arid areas. The entire Wadi Rum is a protected area so all plants, animals and area has to be respected and taken care of.

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 communities of Jordan. 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 Jordan. 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 tours.

We educate all our staff on the real life situations in Jordan. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and dangers 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.

Street children are seen in many of the cities of Jordan. We don't encourage travellers to directly give children money. If they wish to make a contribution, they may speak to the tour guide on whether there are donation strategies available. We are always seeking for donation options and our aim is to establish one in Jordan in the near future.

In Jordan, travelers are encouraged not to tempt children or any locals with food and sweets. The culture has to be respected at all times.

Reviews of Jordan holiday on a shoestring

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?


Petra was AMAZING, the site, and number of different ancient relics is unbelieveable, and truly awe inspiring to see how sophisticated they were, so long ago.

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


Make sure you spend your evenings exploring, it's all too easy to get meals in hotels, but walking into the town in Petra (it's a little walk from the hotel, but there are taxis as alternative), and taxis into Amman - it is so worth while.

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


I think this trip used local guides, and locally owned hotels very effictively, and visited local restaurants to support them. The only concern with the choice of restaurants, was that sometimes they then over inflated their prices, which was a little frustrating - a premium is fine, but i think sometimes the restaurants could be better sourced, so you are helping the local people without feeling that they are taking advantage of tourists!

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


ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT - highly recommended - knowledge of guides Fantastic - information shared brilliantly, areas visited stunning and awe inspiring, tiring (as so much to see and do) but well worth every ounce of effort in walking!
