Georgia small group 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

Though a minimal amount of time is spent within nature over the course of this trip, we have worked hard to ensure it is as environmentally-responsible as possible in any area possible. One such area is the logistics of the trip. Small, boutique hotels account for more than half of the overnight stays on this trip; the environmental benefits of small accommodation rather than large hotels are numerous, and this is something we consider across all of our trips. Similarly, the transport in this trip has been designed to have the least possible impact on the environment. This itinerary features no internal flights, with travel between destinations by shared vehicle and on foot to remain as environmentally-friendly as possible.

To you, our travellers, 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. 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. We also encourage general sustainability whenever possible – limited use of air-conditioning and electricity for instance. This is something we care about strongly as an organisation, and something we try to pass on to our travellers.

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 offered fair pay and working conditions, locally-owned accommodations, and visit local 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. We also support a small portfolio of charities and local grassroots organisations.

As much of this tour takes place within cities, towns and communities, there are many fantastic opportunities for our travellers to engage with local people and and support them while they do so. This itinerary features opportunities for our travellers to purchase goods from local craftspeople at markets in Tblisi and Telavi, take meals in local restaurants and with local families, and take part in wine tastings, bread & sweet making, and more. Not only do these opportunities allow local people to share their unique culture, but it brings them an excellent source of economic support.

Across this trip there are also a number of stops at museums and other important historical sites. Responsible tourism brings a vital source of support as far as the upkeep and continued running of these sites is concerned, and ultimately plays a significant role in preserving and exhibiting the rich history, heritage and culture of Georgia.
