Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Our Taste & Trails of Jordan itinerary was developed with a mindset of development through sustainable travel. Jordan is an incredible country with rich history, traditions and landscapes. We work with local partners that have an eye toward eco conservation and protection of these landscape and national parks, especially in regards to the hiking portion of our trip. One of our visits is to a forest reserve established by Jordan’s Royal Society for the Conservation and serves as a protected habitat. We spend the night at an eco lodge and learn about how the organization supports the local environment and community.

Any time we buy snacks for the road, we look for fresh and local bites; in Jordan this might be fresh olives, dates and nuts. We are able to prioritize locally produced foods, especially fruits and vegetables; for example at our farm-to-table Farewell Dinner in Amman and in our foraging and cooking class with a local women’s group.

On all of our trips, we focus on reduction of plastic and make sure that water jugs are available for refilling personal reusable water bottles. In the event of waste, recycle and composting, we direct client to the appropriate bins and disposal method. We provide guests with a special discount code for a Grayl water filter if they'd like to reduce plastic waste even more by drinking filtered tap water.

People

Our Taste & Trails itinerary prioritizes locally owned suppliers including our boutique hotels, Bedouin-owned camps, local guides, transportation providers, and restaurants. We make a point at stopping at numerous social enterprises on Jordan’s Meaningful Travel Map throughout the trip, and support the economy and community through purchase of artisanal foods and goods.

We work with the same local tour guide each trip, and he has keep knowledge of the achievements & challenges, history and culture of Jordan and provides in-depth perspective and context as we learn about the unique place we're visiting. We're also visiting numerous community development programs such as a women’s soap making cooperative. We believe that a sound understanding of the local culture and community is essential to a transformative travel experience.

We also engage in a community partner activity to learn about social challenges in Jordan. We'll have a presentation with time to engage, ask questions, and see first-hand the impact that they've had. 5% of trip sales are donated to the NGO partner.
