All of this countries attract travelers by their natural beauty, traditions and heritage. It’s our responsibility to prevent this treasures and encourage our travelers to avoid littering, tearing or damaging flowers, as well as to respect wildlife habitats and so on. Also we reduce waste and pollution by asking our tourists to minimize the use of plastic bags, plates, bottles etc.
We also respect the environment by our working policy. In our offices, we operate mainly with computers. We use emails rather than fax and do not print documents but store them on our computers and in online clouds. All of our invoices, travel information and travel documents to our clients are issued as PDF - not printed on paper.
We encourage our tourists to conserve energy and maintain the use of air conditioners, lights and other electrical equipment to a minimum.
Passenger vehicles are a major pollution contributor, producing significant amounts of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and other pollution. In Georgia, we often use electric cars which have several benefits over conventional automobiles, including a significant reduction of local air pollution.
PeopleTravelling with respect
Our tourists travel in small groups so they have a minimal impact on the environment as we go. We work with local operator, who employs on our behalf local group leaders, drivers and the local site guides creating vital local employment.
When it comes to taking pictures of the people themselves, it is always advice our travelers to ask their permission beforehand. Respect their right to privacy if they decline the request.
We ensure minimal social and environmental impact in the places we visit by travelling in small groups. Another advantage of having a small group is that it helps to stay in a family run.
As there are three different countries with different mentalities, we always inform our tourists about local customs and traditions, communication issues and rules of conduct in the churches and mosques in each country. Thus, during all our tours, we are trying to encourage travelers to approach places they visit with greater understanding and respect.
