Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Currently, the World Heritage Sites in Jordan such as the rock city Petra, the Desert Castle Qasr Amra and the archaeological site Um Ar Rasas, etc are treated exeptionally. These destinations are World Heritage sites because of their exceptional natural or cultural splendor. We do our part to keep them that way by following designated trails, and do not climb or walk on archeological areas that are closed to public access. Respect caretakers of the sites, and do not remove archaeological or biological treasures as souvenir.

Protection of natural, social and cultural heritage

• We respect the natural environment. Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Even though we are just visiting, we dispose garbage properly and minimize consumption of energy and water. Keep especially in mind, Jordan has one of the lowest levels of water resources in the world. Tourism is an additional strain on the water supplies, so we try to reduce water use as much as possible.

• When visiting sensitive areas like nature reserves, we maintain appropriate distances from wildlife, stay on trails to avoid trampling plants or causing erosion.

• We are sensitive when you take photos or videos of local people, we make sure permission to do so is taken.

• We always treat local people with respect and courtesy. Also we take note of local dress code. Jordan is mainly an Islamic country, so especially women are required to cover shoulders and knees. As a general rule, dressing smartly, will garner more respect.

People

As tourism becomes a truly global industry, we recognise our obligation to operate our tours in a responsible and sustainable fashion. We view this not only as an environmental issue but an economic and social one as well. We are promoting actively Sustainable & Responsible Tourism. You as traveler can contribute with your decisions to positive impacts on the people, the economy and the environment:

Benefits for local communities

• If you intend to buy a souvenir from Jordan your escort can recommend shops where you can look for products made in Jordan. The items are mostly handmade by Women's Cooperation, supporting with this work several families in them communities. The products are more expensive than from China or India, but you support the Cooperation and it is a unique Jordan heritage/tradition you help to survive. There is no commission, the money you spend is going directly to the local people.

• Eat where the locals do, this will give you a better insight to the Jordanian cuisine, it will also help to support the local economy.
