Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Mekong cruise and tour, Cambodia & Vietnam

Environment

We believe that travel should entail an exchange of knowledge and perspectives, a sharing of wealth, and a genuine appreciation of Vietnam and Cambodia's beautiful natural environment. This philosophy underpins the heart and soul of our style of travel. We recognise that poorly planned itineraries or poorly informed tourists contribute less to cross-cultural understanding and less to the livelihoods of local people.

We produce a comprehensive ‘Tread Lightly’ booklet, distributed on arrival and our local guides are experts on local issues, helping our guests to navigate Vietnam & Cambodia in an environmentally sensitive manor - helping to preserve heritage buildings and fragile environments for future generations.

On this journey, we actively encourage exploration on bike, boat and on foot. Our walking tours especially are a low carbon way of exploring the historic centres of the cities we visit, ensuring our passengers have a minor impact on the environment as a whole during their stay in Cambodia and Vietnam.

Community

All of our local guides are trained to share their knowledge of cultural and other local issues in a balanced, informative way. They will share real experiences from their own lives and insights into their family life, influences and beliefs. This is what motivates our guides; not shopping commissions.

CAMBODIA: We have facilitated a very significant donation to the World Monument Fund in Cambodia, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the maintenance of a select number of archaeologically precious temples in Angkor.

VIETNAM: This small group tour to Vietnam include visits to the Streets International project in Hoi An, which aims to help local Vietnamese from a grass-roots level. Streets provides young people with skills, from front of house to qualified chef’s, in the hospitality industry that will last them a lifetime. Based from the streets Cafe and Restaurant, we have arranged for some of the students at Streets to give members of our groups a walking tour of one of one of Hoi An’s rarely visited markets as well as a walking tour of some of Hoi An’s back-streets that are rarely seen by tourists. In a group of two or three, and with a supervisor from the organisation present, these tours will help the students earn valuable credits towards their qualifications and give our travellers a truly unique insight into everyday life in Hoi An. Upon returning to Streets Cafe and Restaurant you can relax with a cold drink and sample some of the cafe’s incredible food.

Our offices in Vietnam and Cambodia are staffed with local people wherever possible and we have a long term aim of filling management roles with competent local staff. This presence in Vietnam means we are much better able to control the content, the actions of our suppliers, and the style of our small group journey.
