Jordan history tour, back in time
Description of Jordan history tour, back in time
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.
PlanetWildlife: We believe it is our responsibility as a tour operator to inform our visitors about wildlife issues and provide them with as much information as possible in order to help them become aware of the local environment and environmental issues.
Keep Jordan Clean: We believe the biggest environmental concern that Jordan should pay attention to is the litter catastrophe. We have decided to come out with the problem, and bring the issue to the attention of the concerned bodies in the country. We have held meetings with the people in charge at Amman Greater Governorate to discuss the issue. We have also taken part in different awareness programs to encourage both locals and tourists to help towards protecting Jordanís rare environment.
We aim to limit our impact on the environment in several ways. When on tour, we aim to preserve and protect delicate ecosystems, wildlife and natural habitats by following strict rules that minimise the effects of our presence in an area. Some of these rules are summarised hereunder:
- Keep noise levels down as noise can disturb native birds, animals and reptiles.
- Keep to proper footpaths, do not feed wildlife and do not pick flowers or shrubs.
- Do not spoil trees and historic monuments with graffiti.
- Water is scarce in Jordan, so we practice conservation and keep water sources clean.
We have also participated in many of the RSCNís (The Royal Society for The Conservation of Nature) Nature Guide programs that aim to provide tourists with first hand nature experience.
Energy & CO2 Emission: We plan the routes of our itineraries to minimise carbon emissions by using overland transport and by avoiding domestic flights wherever is possible.
We also reduce waste and pollution and recycle, repair and reuse what we can, both on tour and at our office. For example, we use energy efficient lighting and Energy Star appliances at our offices whereas on tours we try Ėas much as possible to avoid using of straws and plastic lids at the resort to protect marine life
PeopleWe prefer to use smaller locally-owned businesses, ensuring that local communities gain a direct economic benefit from our business. For example we use small locally owned hotels, campsites and activity providers wherever possible, and aim to do our food shopping in local markets where we can. By using the services of local guides, we support the economy as well as providing our passengers with the benefit of direct interaction with local people.
Furthermore, all of our tour leaders are either native to the areas of activity, or have lived, traveled or worked in these areas for long periods.
Our local guides are trained and licensed (locally). We always aim to recruit (support) guides from the specific areas of operation, and these areas of Jordan provide very few or no opportunities for employment.
We include home-stays in some of our itineraries, depending on the target groups.
The local cuisine is an integral part of real understanding and enjoyment of a region or a country.
By facilitating usage of products and services of local origin, We ensure the local producers tbenefit, and on the other side form a solid basis for sustainable tourism development in Jordan.
For transport we use local charter bus providers most of the times. Depending from the activity and area covered, we attempt to reduce the mileage and the fuel consumption.
We donít use printed promotion materials. The promotion of the company is done through our website and different social media and travel platforms. The design works for our website is done in-house.
