How Croatia small group tour makes a difference
Travelling on local public buses, trains, ferries, taxis and minibuses, this tour gives you plenty of opportunities to get to know the local people while using public transport. The use of this variety of local transport also minimises our impact on the local environment and provides income to local businesses.
During this tour we have many opportunities to visit UNESCO World Heritage sites, where our entrance fees help maintain and restore these precious cultural icons..
We have teamed up with an international conservation charity called World Land Trust to offer clients the ability to offset the carbon emissions of their flights. We encourage all travellers to do their share to reduce the impact of their travel on the environment.
We have a full Responsible Travel policy available on our website, which our reservations team will give you a link to when you book. Itís packed with information about how travellers can reduce their social and environmental impact as they travel, and details all the measures our company has put in place in the office and on the road to reduce our impact
All our travellers are encouraged to learn a few words and phrases of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible to enhance their social experiences on tour. In addition to the phrase books which are available for purchase, our tour leaders are able to teach you useful words and phrases on the road. Be courageous enough to test out your language skills on public transport and in restaurants - start a friendly conversation and youíll learn more about the culture from the people than you could from any travel guide!
Your tour leader will brief you on etiquette such as the clothing required and behaviour expected by visitors to churches, cathedrals and other sacred places. There are different guidelines for different cultures, so please bear that in mind so that as we travel we can avoid offense wherever possible.
Your tour leader will introduce you to many local restaurants and bars throughout the tour, helping you discover the authentic local cuisine. Be brave and try something traditional or something youíve never heard of before rather than sticking to the dishes youíve had in your home country - itís all part of exploring a new culture.
Local guides will also lend their expertise to the journey, explaining the historical background and cultural significance of the places we visit. They will help you to appreciate the importance of respecting the environment of these heritage sites and understand the conservation efforts undertaken at various parks.
We will visit many local shopping districts and markets along the way, giving you plenty of opportunity to support local merchants. We would encourage you to purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans rather than mass produced goods from chain stores, as you will learn more about the skill involved in the production, while also support the craft.
