Dead Sea holiday, Jordan
Description of Dead Sea holiday, 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 recognize our obligation to operate our tours in a responsible and sustainable fashion. We view this not only as an environmental issue but as a social one as well. Above all we are committed to the well-being of the communities that are our hosts and the natural environment that we are there to experience.
We make sure that the volume of participants and type of tourism we offer doesnít have a negative impact on local conditions and infrastructure, our programs are all tailored to suit small groups, thereby trying to minimize the impact on sensitive ecosystems whilst allowing clients to enjoy their holiday with maximum flexibility and personalised service.
We also aim to work with suppliers, communities and organisations, which are committed to environmental protection. In this tour, we work with hotel partners to provide a friendly reminder to keep air conditioning set at moderate level, turn off lights when leaving your room, and make use of the eco option to re-use towels and sheets. They also do take other environmental initiatives like reducing the use of any plastic waste and by providing recycling bins.
As much as possible we also tend to work with suppliers to make use of alternative energy sources where possible, (such as wind, solar), and to actively recycle waste where such facilities exist. For example we we always make sure we travel via the most energy efficient routing and we always ask for the vehicles we use to be maintained regularly for utmost fuel efficiency.
PeopleWe ensure that local economies benefit from our business by using locally-owned accommodation whenever possible or accommodation employing local people. We work with local suppliers, etc. In doing so, we are not only investing in local communities but also offering our travellers a genuine insight into a country and its people.
We also employ local guides on all our tours, treks and cultural programs, and make use of local labour in order to contribute to the economy and development of the local community.
We also encourage our clients to purchase locally produced items from craft markets. We also inform our clients that bargaining, and trading goods is the norm, but to keep in mind that the community has to make their living from this, and not to try and bargain unfairly
We aim to contribute to local peoplesí well-being as much as we can therefore, we support initiative and projects run by locals such as the tomato picking in Al Ghor and Olive harvesting in Ajloun.
