Responsible tourism: Montenegro to Croatia food tour

Environment

Using the traditional sailing vessel (Gajeta falkuša) on Vis island presents a fully environmentally adapted concept which preserves the purity of the maritime zone and poses absolutely no danger to the marine flora and fauna. The visitors are introduced to the natural heritage in a specific way and are made aware of the frailty, sensitivity and beauty of nature.

To reduce the amount of driving we use a hub-and-spoke approach. Guests stay in fewer lodging locations that become their 'base' as we run many day trips that are all close by to the base. This means less driving, less emissions and more time everyday spent with local businesses and not sitting in cars. Being in one place for longer than a day helps our guests get to know the regional communities better. We only use modern diesel vehicles that are energy efficient and comply to the strict standards of European Union.

All of our invoices, travel information and travel documents to our clients are issued as PDF - not printed on paper. The majority of our brochures are disseminated via PDF downloads and emails rather than printed on paper. In our office we operate mainly with computers. We use emails rather than fax and do print documents but store them on our computers and in online clouds.

Community

We are proud members of Slow Food USA and Slow Food UK. Our company is part of the Slow Food UK Supporters Scheme to help promote Croatia and Montenegro as authentic travel & culinary destinations and to put members of slow food in touch with like-minded individuals during their travels. Our tour spends time at various food and wine producers who are members of local Slow Food Dubrovnik chapters.

We offer our travelers small family-owned hotels, pensions/B&B's to stay in. Overnight in these locally owned lodgings enhances the visitors’ experience, since they get an opportunity to be welcomed by a local host and receive a better insight into the everyday life of local people. It also puts guests in touch with people they would normally not come across while traveling in large cities or without knowing the local roads. We communicate directly to these suppliers so there is no middle man who would get most of the money. Instead, the majority of money generated on our tours goes into the pockets of small wineries, shops, farmhouses and other locally operated businesses.

All of the meals included in our tours are at locally owned and operated restaurants, farmhouses and pensions. In this way our clients have an opportunity to taste some of the typical specialties of the region and at the same time help the local economy. Most of the food served at these places are from the owner's land, though a few items are supplemented from other local farmers and food producers in the region.

Many of the wines and food specialties on our tour are not available anywhere outside of these countries and some are not even available in local shops, only at the home of the winemakers and food producers (which we visit). This gives our guests a real unique chance to try something that they could never purchase at home, help put some money into the local economy and give good word of mouth to these businesses, which is key to their sustainability.
