Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Puglia to Albania cultural tour, small group

Environment

As a young tour operator, we are passionate and enthusiastic about our regions, organizing journeys that benefit both local communities as well as our guests. Through this travel you will discover Apulia (Puglia) region and Albania through their traditions and cultures: Our main purpose is to propagate a sustainable Tourism, as a possibility of sociality, exchange and economy improvement.

Even if every day you enjoy new places, the driven distances are reduced to the essential, making possible a variety of landscapes and experiences by a low hydrocarbon impact.

All meals are based on seasonal local food for the transport minimizing and the preservation of traditional farm and biodiversity.
Furthermore the tour leader recommends at any purchase to avoid single-use-plastic-bag and in general single-use-packaging.

In our office: We started from our working place by lowering resources consumption, in fact we just use materials with longer life; we reduce as much as possible wastes and use the corresponding differentiated collection.

Community

This travel is organized in cooperation with an Albanian tour operator to be sure of involving local communities also in Albania for pleasant interactions between guests and local people as a path for intellectual enrichment in both directions.

We also encourage new perspectives to the natural and artistic heritage of South Italy and Albania, as a new way of enjoying (until now) unknown places, monuments and sites.

During last decades the tourist flow in Puglia increased and today it is difficult for travelers, especially for foreigners, to discern touristy places from shops and restaurants favorite by locals, as we do. Moreover, by escaping mass tourism places, we contribute to avoid the visitors concentration that represent actually a serious problem in some part of Italy.

The family run accommodation on the country side ensures also the proximity to the land and its slower rhythm; in general we only collaborate with local companies and local guides to guarantee a sustainable further use of tourist incomes.
