Check dates, prices & availability
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 only run a small number of photography tours each year and we have a maximum group size of 10, thus keeping the environmental impact of international flights to a minimum.
We donít include flights in our package to allow participants all over the world to make the best and most cost and environmentally effective travel arrangements for themselves (e.g. combining with other trips planned in the same area). We actively encourage our participants to combine their Asia trips so they limit their long-haul footprint, and we also run our tours sequentially for the same reasons.
Our Vietnam trip has a number of locations that are UNESCO protected. Through the local fees and money spent there we will effectively be contributing to their preservation and maintenance. This trip has been designed as slow travel and there are no internal flights to minimise the impact of travel to the environment. The tour includes a large number of overnight stays in eco homes and home stays.
We will use only local transport and organise it in a way that is the most effective and environment-friendly.
PeopleWe purchase our gifts and souvenirs from family businesses, local markets as well as organised local charities promoting welfare of local residents and we never haggle! While doing so, we are very mindful not to inadvertently encourage child labour, as we believe all children should be in schools, not selling on the streets, as hard as the realities on the ground may be.
We encourage our photography tour participants to adopt the same practices. This is embedded in our tour structure where we aim to stay and eat local, visit local markets and stay in family-run accommodation.
We actively encourage staying, eating and shopping local, and not using international chains, and we arrange all accommodation, travel and meals accordingly and directly at source inasmuch as possible, to maximise value for both our customers and local providers.
While encouraging our customers to be creative and always seek new points of view and ways of creating images, we actively discourage practicing photography that is too intrusive to either people, nature and wildlife, or which depicts social situations in a way that is derogative, insensitive or offensive.
