As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur Guidebook to the clients highlights out our awareness of the importance of protecting the environment, including the heads-up for travelers to respect the environment, protect the local customs, culture and historic relics whilst exploring China. We never try bringing down our cost for the tour by using anything unrecyclable. We encourage our staff to reduce the use of the fax machine, for example by using our email fax viewer, and to reuse printout paper. We encourage to use the bullet trains when traveling between cities and the electric shuttle buses when touring attractions to reduce the carbon. At the meantime, travelers can also understand how Chinese people are protecting our own country in history-wise, culture-wise and natural-environment-wise. We always keep small groups tours, as small group tour can reduces the impact of tourism on the environment, e.g. no noise pollution from loud hailers, and smaller vehicles mean less damage to roads.
PeopleWe are proud to say that yearly we make great contribution to the local community by stimulating the economics, optimizing and leading the tourism, offering the local people numerous job opportunities. Interaction with local people is much encouraged because we think that is the best way for outsiders to understand the life, faith and values of common Chinese people. We only employ local guides to make you get the most out of your travelling, and pay a better salaries (including to tour guides and supplier agencies in other cities) than other Chinese operators. As in this tour, you will visit a traditional cave dwelling to learn making a mini terracotta warrior and enjoy a cup of tea in a time-honored brand tea house to support their business. You can also interact with a local Uyghur family to experience their lifestyle and talk with the local people in the Sunday animal market.
