Moldova cultural tour

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment in which you travel, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact to the environment whilst travelling. We ask you to be vigilant about disposing of your waste and recycle where possible. During your trip you will be asked if you have any waste to dispose of when it is a suitable time in the itinerary. This ensures we make it as easy as possible for our travellers to be eco-friendly whilst traveling.

The logistics of this trip have been constructed to be as environmentally-responsible as possible. Where possible, we use small, locally-owned accommodation; the environmental benefits of small accommodations over larger hotels are numerous, and it’s a factor we consider on all of our tours. Similarly, transportation between destinations is a factor that we aim to keep as low-impact as possible. This trip makes use of shared vehicle to transport our travellers between destinations, with no internal flights or other means of transport with a greater negative environmental affect.

We strongly advise all travellers to bring a reusable water bottle - this is an easy way to save plastic waste and is detailed in our ‘What to bring’ trip notes for all trips to all destinations. Your guide will remind you where and when you can fill up your re-usable water bottle. Similarly, we ask that you are environmentally conscious in other areas when possible, e.g. using air-conditioning and electricity sparingly.

Community

As regular travellers, one thing that never ceases to amaze and inspire us is the kindness and generosity of local people, often people who have very little to their name. We firmly believe that they are who make these places special should and that they should benefit from our visit. Therefore, as first preference, we use local guides and locally-owned lodges, shops and eateries. We do our best to ensure that the benefits of our tours reach as widely as possible into the communities where they operate.

This itinerary includes stops at a number of local restaurants and museums, a local winery, and even includes a professionally-run cooking class. These particular features of the tour offer additional and direct support for local businesspeople, and by extension, the communities as a whole. In the case of the museums, tourism is a vital source of income that allows these institutions to continue to preserve and exhibit Moldova’s proud culture and extremely important history.

We ensure that all of our tour guides, drivers, and handlers are offered good working conditions and fair pay. Similarly, we endeavour to use supplies purchased locally from the businesspeople within the local economy wherever possible. We believe these things are of particular importance when travelling in small communities such as those included on this itinerary; we are proud to benefit these communities in any way possible, whether it be through economic growth or any other means. Tourism is a vital and significant source of growth and development both within these remote regions and for Moldova as a whole.
