Family holiday to Jordan
Description of Family holiday to Jordan
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetWe are committed to the natural environment, we also believe that by following these policies we can provide a more rewarding and interesting experience to our clients. The following are the key points in our philosophy:
Small groups have less impact on local communities and environments.
We endeavour to ensure that our practices help in the environmental conservation of the areas we visit such as the Dana reserve, Azraq natural reserve and wetland. for example, we ensure that all of our clients avoid littering, and that water needs to be conserved as much as possible.
Travel clients may be asked by tour leaders and crew to:
Turn off the lights, air conditioning, fans, TV when leaving a room
Reconsider using air conditioning if possible
Consider taking a short shower once daily rather than a bath
We work with as many environmental hotels as possible however, we would also encourage clients to tell the hotel that recycling facilities would be welcome, if they’re not currently offered – demand often precedes supply of such services
PeopleWe believe in giving back to the communities we operate in. All our guides are from Jordan and within the local area we operate in. This ensures the money you spent goes back into developing local communities and in creating more sustainable employment and other opportunities.
We encourage the use, and only make use of (unless not possible) local suppliers and services. This includes local products, foods and crafts, local suppliers and using locally owned and managed accommodations wherever possible, thus ensuring the funds invested remain within the country.
• We employ local guides on all our tours, treks and cultural programs, order to contribute to the economy and development of the local community.
• We encourage our clients to purchase locally produced items from indigenous craft markets.
• Wherever possible, we encourage our suppliers and customers to purchase local goods rather than imported products. Be adventurous and dine in local restaurants. This helps to support the local economy and you get to explore another of Jordan’s special treats – the local cuisine is one of the very best.
• Visit local, small-scale souvenir shops and markets and purchase from local people directly rather than tourist shops and hotel boutiques – you will often find better bargains in local craft-markets and your purchases directly benefits the local craftsmen and women.
• We recommend that you plan for tipping within your holiday budget. If you feel that you have received great service during your stay at a lodge, hotel or camp or exceptional service from a guide or cook or porter, then please tip them accordingly. Tipping differs from place to place, and in some cases certain hotels and lodges have gratuities boxes at reception. Ask the hotel management the best way to tip to ensure that the people behind the scenes also benefit from your stay.
