Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Ethiopia holiday

Ethiopia - with its fantastic churches, amazing scenery and wonderful people - has a rich cultural heritage, which we fully explore on this comprehensive tour. We travel in small groups ensuring that local suppliers are able to gain the maximum benefit from our visit.

As well as viewing the magnificent sites, groups are encouraged to experience local life - such as eating in local (and excellent!) restaurants and passing time chatting in local markets. The very warmth of the Ethiopian people is for many a tour highlight. On many departures we use local leaders as part of our policy to employ local people wherever possible, however, some departures are led by UK based leaders who have worked in Ethiopia for many years and have formed strong relationships with local crew, suppliers and the people.

Whether you travel with a local or UK based leader we can ensure an experience that allows plenty of opportunity for local interaction.

In addition to the above, we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage. As well as this, we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators. We acknowledge that air travel has a negative impact on our environment, so we work together with Cool Earth to offset carbon and protect our important rainforests.

Reviewed on 12 Mar 2007 by

I have just come back from back-to-back trips with this operator. The first trip was to Indochina - Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. The most memorable part was being in Saigon for Chinese New Year - fantastic atmosphere! My tip (as someone who has no sense of direction) is not to worry about getting lost in the towns. It's so easy just to get a cycle rickshaw or a motor bike taxi. I bought food, drink and goods from street sellers wherever possible in order to benefit the local community, but I worry about the amount of plastic water bottles generated by tourists. The holiday was very enjoyable.

The second part of my trip was to Borneo. The most memorable part was - sadly - the complete shambles and lack of organization. My tip to anyone thinking of booking this trip is, don't! It was definitely the most disappointing adventure travel holiday I have ever had.
