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
Accommodation - This tour includes a two day excursion in the Amazon Jungle of Peru, where travellers get to experience eco jungle lodges. Not only is this a unique experience but the lodges are designed to limit disruption to the animals and plantlife of the Amazon. They are built from local indigenous materials so that they blend with the nature and platlife around them and donít alarm the wildlife. Electricity and hot water are limited so that the accommodation has minimal impact on local facilities. There is water available so we suggest that travellers bring a reusable water bottle instead of purchasing plastic bottles. We are committed to only working with accommodation suppliers who share our commitment to promoting responsible travel practises.

We understand that protecting the environment is of the utmost responsibility of every traveller and tour operator, and we therefore include thorough information of our policies online so that travellers can feel prepared and comfortable with what they can do to help. This includes but is not limited to: ensuring all electricity is switched off when not in use and limiting the use of air-conditioning when possible, always asking the hotel staff not to change bedding and towels unless necessary, limiting single use plastic and disposing of waste correctly and generally respecting the areas you explore making sure not to disrupt the natural environment.

Wildlife - Both the Amazon Jungle and Ballestas Islands have an abundance of wildlife. The Ballestas Islands are a part of the Paracas Wildlife Reserve and therefore well protected. Boat trips allow travellers to see a lot of the animals up close however humans are not allowed to step foot on the island so to not disrupt their habitat.

Culture - This tour visits 5 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Peru. This includes Machu Picchu where the entrance fees goes towards the preservation of the site. Other sites include the historic centre of Lima, Nazca lines, the historic centre of Cusco and Arequipa.

Transport - This trip makes good use of the local transport infrastructure. This includes an overnight tourist bus as well as other shared transport throughout the trip. During the trip to the Sacred Valley, multiple groups are often combined to avoid using too many vehicles. Local, shared transport has a much lower carbon footprint per person and is also a great way to meet and interact with locals or other travellers.

Waste - We have an in-depth environmental policy which is available for customers to read prior to travel, which highlights ways in which all of us can work towards fighting environmental issues. We actively ask customers to be aware of what they are purchasing (i.e international, imported products will naturally have a high carbon footprint) and always try to buy local.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Local communities - We visit Lake Titicaca on a day trip to immerse travellers in the local way of life and allow a deeper understanding of the indigenous communities culture. The families here have preserved their way of life while opening their doors to tourists to supplement their income. We visit two islands here, where not only are travellers guided through daily life and the history of Lake Titicaca but also have the chance to purchase homemade crafts and textiles from the families here. This further supports the communities and provides wonderful souvenirs for customers who want to pick up something special.

Friends and neighbours - Having operated for over 30 years in South America, we have built wonderful and long-standing relationships with various suppliers, including guides, accommodation and restaurant owners. Our tour leaders will always provide recommendations for local restaurants and markets where the money is going into the local economy and not international brands.

Meals - This trip includes a two day excursion in the Amazon Jungle. All meals included in the Amazon are sourced locally and not imported. We work with suppliers who share the same ethos as us, and work towards providing sustainable and responsible excursions. The lunch included in Lake Titicaca is also made by the community using locally sourced food. Not only does this keep carbon emissions low but also provides the most authentic type of meal for travellers. Where meals are not included, our tour leaders advise customers where to eat and will always opt for smaller, locally owned establishments.
