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 always encourage our travelers to be responsible about discarding waste properly as well as to be mindful about the amounts of waste produced. Our expert guides will also be there to instruct everyone on how to dispose of waste properly as not to disturb or destroy the beautiful, natural habitats we'll see.
A lot of natural environments will be visited on this trip so we always advise our travelers to be conscious of how much plastic is used and to always recycle. Our guides will buy large jugs of water so travelers can fill their personal water bottles rather than frequently buying small individual plastic bottles in order to reduce the amount of plastic waste created. Similarly, we encourage you to put purchases in your day pack if possible rather than using a plastic bag every time. Every little bit helps!
In terms of water and energy consumption, we ask that travelers be aware of Egypt's limited renewable water resources and take care not to indulge in unreasonably long showers. We also ask that travelers be aware of their energy consumption by doing little things that can make a big impact if enough individuals participate, such as turning off lights while not in the room, running the air conditioning only when needed, etc.
During the trip, we will take 1 mini bus that is spacious enough for our group. This way, we don't have to take multiple cars and use more gasoline which in turn, causes more air pollution.
While interaction with wildlife will be limited, any interaction we have will be with the well-being of the wildlife of the utmost priority. The local guides we work with are well-trained and will instruct all travelers on how to behave responsibly around any wildlife encountered.
When choosing all of the activities on this trip, we were adamant that suppliers have the environment and well-being of the wildlife, plant and animal, of the locality in mind. We prefer local suppliers that have the maintenance and continuity of their homeland as a priority and we avoid working with anyone that exploits people or animals. Don't worry though, these will not detract from any of the fun and amazing experiences that you will have on this epic adventures!
PeopleAll of our local guides and drivers know the best places and things to do in Egypt. They are your insight into everyday life as well as history and culture. They will always point you in the right direction of their favorite restaurants, sites and activities with your interest in mind. We also consider it of utmost importance to compensate all local suppliers and guides fairly and generously according to the local standard of living. We want our guides to be happy and healthy so that they can be in good condition to show you the best that their country has to offer.
We will also only select locally-owned and run businesses and accommodations for our travelers. We avoid large-scale international chains at all costs. We think that this is one of the best ways to support local communities and economies and to have a more authentic experience as well as to learn what real life is like in Egypt.
Our tour in Egypt will explore local communities as well as enterprises in order to fuel the economy and help local business owners. We will have dinner with a local family in their home where we can chat with the family members about life in the Middle East and learn about their every day lives, and their culture.
This trip will be an excellent opportunity to learn about different ways in which people in Egypt live and thrive in sometimes harsh environments. We always encourage positive cultural exchange and try to give our travelers as many chances for this as possible.
