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.
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.
We encourage our tourists to conserve energy and maintain the use of air conditioners, lights and other electrical equipment to a minimum.
Sustainable purchasing is a great way to reduce our impact on the environment. We ask our suppliers if their products are made from recycled materials. For example our lunch boxes from Aries Lunch company are provided with no plastic and environmental friendly materials.
Limiting our impact
Our tourists travel in small groups so they have a minimal impact on the environment as we go.
Our e-mails, PDF files, invoices, vouchers always include notes with suggestion to consider the environment before printing them. 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. Also we reduce waste and pollution by collaborating with plastic and paper waste reducing company in Armenia named "Ecoaghb" and "Apaga".
PeopleLocal crafts and culture
We support the local economy buying locally made souvenirs and organize our tourist's meals at local restaurants. We always visit local wineries in Armenia and Georgia. For example VanArdi, Areni, Voskevaz, Zorah Wineries.
Traveling with respect
We work with a local operator, who employs on our behalf local group leaders, drivers and the local site guides creating vital local employment.
The local guides will advise our tourists on how to respect cultural differences. People in different places do things differently, and we will not try to change them but enjoy them.
A fair deal
Working conditions are at the core of paid work and employment relationships. Generally speaking, working conditions cover a broad range of topics and issues, from working time to remuneration, as well as the physical conditions and mental demands that exist in the workplace. We ensure that we offer local people good working conditions with a fare wage.
