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.
PlanetWe are committed to positive environmental impacts through our Responsible Travel Policy. This journey operates through Iran where we ensure we use experienced drivers who know the areas well which allows us to be confident there will be no risk of damage to the environment and local flora. Our small group size ensures that this is in small vehicles not large buses. During our time in cities we also encourage groups to try the local transport.
We use Local Partners who work with us to design journeys in an optimal way to limit our impact on the environment. We make certain to reduce plastic waste by promoting reusing drink bottles instead of buying bottled water. Where possible our clients stay in smaller-scale accommodation, such as locally owned guesthouses which helps keeps impact low, in support of the local people.
We include many local and home-cooked lunches, dinners on our journey which helps reduce the carbon impact of food miles and enables us to spread economic benefits while also promote cultural understanding.
PeopleWe have a very clear mandate to support the local community and without these Local Partners our on ground experiences wouldn’t be the same. We have been operating journeys throughout Asia for over 50 years and strive to build on our long established reputation for having the utmost respect for the places and communities that we visit.
We contract the services of Local Guides and City Ambassadors through our Local Partners. This journey will take us into the homes of locals to share in their daily lives and to exchange ideas over lunches and dinners. We find this not only enriches the overall experience but allows us to understand local traditions and create sound relationships between clients and locals.
We visit local markets where possible again helping to serve as an authentic and cultural experience and one, which maintains a closer bond between client and local. We always encourage our group to buy locally and encourage local trade and artistry.
