Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We are committed to positive environmental impacts through our Responsible Travel Policy. As an overland company we have extremely low carbon emissions throughout all our journeys. This journey operates over 3,488km departing from Tbilisi, travelling through Georgia, Armenia and Iran before concluding in Shiraz. We ensure to 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. We use multi person road vehicles exclusively across Georgia and Armenia to ensure our carbon footprint remains low, using a communal vehicle for the entire group, group leaders and guides. We also utilise one overnight rail journey from Tabriz to Tehran in a 4-berth cabin, which is the maximum berth on this scheduled departure, again ensuring we maximise our traveller-cabin ratio.

We use Local Partners who work with us to design journeys 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, in support of the local people. We try to include as many local lunches, dinners and wineries in our journeys which enables us to spread economic benefits while also promote cultural understanding. We also make certain that none of our scheduled sightseeing visit zoos or orphanages.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We 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. We use Haykuhi, a trusted Local Guide from Armenia for many of our tours. Haykuhi loves to share the history of her country which she describes as one of the most intriguing countries in the world.

In addition, we partner with local families, which we find 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.
