Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Small group tour of Turkey

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 travellers have to abide by. For example, we recycle empty ink cartridges. A company collects them and disposes of them the correct manner.

Turkey is a very expensive country in terms of transport. This is why we encourage our travelers to rather walk as much as they can when in the major cities of Turkey. When in Istanbul it is quite possible to walk short distances. Not only will they save money, but it reduces the carbon footprint as well.

During the sailing of the gullets, all waste is separated. There are clearly marked bins for plastics, glass, paper and organic waste. Once the gullets disembark, the waste bags are then disposed in the appropriate municipal waste bins.

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 belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.

We promise to support the local community of every destination we take our travelers to. 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 that country. 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 tour.

Only local tour guides are used in all our tours. This way we provide a direct income to the Turkish guide and we allow him/her to suggest how we could further support the community by taking travelers to the most appropriate coffee shops and bazaars. The travelers can then decide how to support the locals there.

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

Reviews of Small group tour of Turkey

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.

I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really

Reviewed on 14 May 2014 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The most memorable things were the amazing historical sites and the excellent Turkish food.

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


There is a lot of time sitting on a bus. The countryside is interesting and the guide tried to keep us informed and amused but take a good book or a pillow for the long rides.

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


Only the employees of the tour company and the various commercial stops we made. I was a little disappointed that the trip fell short in this area.

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


We enjoyed the trip. It was well organized. It was a good example of small group travel in an interesting place

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Going to Troy, even for too short a time.

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


Be prepared to endure long hours in a mini bus, mostly unequipped with working seat belts. Make sure you have a variety of clothing to cope with the variety of weather. Always survey the vast spread of mostly pleasant food at the hotel buffets before choosing the first dish.

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


Only in so far as it provided them with some much needed money. the visit to the leather factory was rather disgusting: slick and commercial, and took time away from sites.

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


I didn't like arriving at the hotel to find they weren't expecting us as we had been transferred to another company, making this the second time! Where was the "responsible" attitude I had booked with Responsible Travel to find? Guidance for tipping other than our excellent guide and driver was hard to find. We spent so much time travelling that we were constantly being hurried from one site to another.
