We encourage learning about the country we are visiting, the local culture of the people we work with and the areas we pass through. Our local teachers hold informal talks with groups to inform about and discuss with them all aspects of local life. This helps understanding of the area and appreciation of the people who live there.
By learning Spanish, everyone is able to communicate with local people, even at a basic level. All our language tutors and dance instructors are local people and they are treated and paid fairly. Food is purchased locally and we use food products with as little packaging as possible, and encourage cooking with local products. Accommodation is provided by local homestay hosts.
We invite every traveller who books a holiday via us to send in a review. Because we don't run the holidays they're completely independent and unedited... remember to read between the lines though, as two people on the same holiday can have different views!
