Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

The Galapagos Islands are one of the world's most unique habitats. Before travelling on any of our trips our clients are sent detailed pre-departure information which includes advice on travelling responsibly. This includes information on what you can do before you travel - for example, removing unnecessary packaging, bringing a sturdy reusable water bottle, packing environmentally friendly toiletries.

Travel in the Galapagos islands is heavily regulated to minimise environmental impact. Numbers of tourists and types of boats are restricted. At the start of your Galapagos trip you will be made fully aware of what you can and cannot do on the Islands to promote conservation - for example how close you can get to wildlife., keeping to designated paths, not 'taking' natural souvenirs from the islands, how to dispose of rubbish.

The boat we use is one of the smaller ones - generally for 16 people. The smaller vessels have a lesser environmental impact than the bigger ships.

The Impacts of this Trip

In line with Galapagos regulations your boat crew and guide will be from the local community.

The islands are heavily regulated and tours are taxed. These taxes go towards conservation of the islands and improving conditions for local communities for example education projects, sports, health, sanitation. Likewise, the regulations help to ensure that local habitats and wildlife are preserved.

As a company, although we do not have any projects we support directly within the Galapagos Islands we have a number of other projects we support in our other areas of operation. In Africa we sponsor an elephant, Kamboyo, at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Conservation in Kenya. In Zimbabwe, we work with a local Children's Home, taking all the children out on a trip on an annual basis. In Egypt, we work with a school for Sudanese refugee children., helping to fund teachers' wages and providing teaching equipment. This school, receives no state support .
