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 ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment in which you travel, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact to the environment whilst travelling. To respect our environment they inform the tourists how to behave while walking in the countryside or visiting ancient Marv the ruins of which are protected by UNESCO. they encourage them to avoid littering, tearing or damaging flowers, as well as to respect wildlife habitats and so on. By keeping the group small, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems we visit.
We strongly believe reusable bottles are very important for health of the planet and always encourage travelers to have them. Each day of the tour we also provide our travelers with water only filled in glass bottles.This helps to minimize littering and plastic use in the country.
There are plenty of opportunities to experience local cuisine and as you see your dinners will be at the local restaurants, we try to ensure that local foods are cooked using local produce that is in season.
We try to limit our impact on our surroundings as much as possible. We always ask our tourists to leave their electronics unplugged at all times, unless they’re actually using them.
New is not always better – the traditional method of line-drying the clothing is much better for the environment. In order to save energy we encourage our tourists to use the line-drying method instead of dryer.
PeopleWe believe that a successful trip not only delivers a unique and unsurpassable journey for our clients, but that it also benefits the peoples whose lands we are privileged to visit. We ensure to use experienced local drivers who know the areas best when transfers are needed. This allows us to be confident there will be no risk of damage to the environment and local flora.
This itinerary includes visits to bazaars which offer fresh fruits and vegetables, dried fruit, spices, local snacks, sweet cakes, chill tea, as well as local handicraft. This is an excellent opportunity for our travellers to support local craftspeople, including traditional wood-and-metalworkers. This tour also supports countless museums, fortresses, archaeological sites and important cultural gems.
In this way, you can ensure that money goes directly into the hands of the local community. Not only does this allow local people and visitors to interact and learn about each other’s culture, it also allows visitors to make a meaningful connection with local people, and ensures that the revenue generated by tourism goes directly to local communities.
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.
