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 carry a portable water filter with us to reduce plastic waste. All the trip participants are advised to bring their water bottles that can be refilled from filtered water. This is not only important for their safety but also ensures that litter creation is prevented & that excessive consumption of plastic is avoided.
We carry our own lunch boxes and cloth bags to get things packed from restaurants and to use whilst shopping. The bags are also a means to carry back our litter in places where perhaps one isn't available.
Sometimes we also organize spontaneous cleanup drives and engage the participants of the trip to help collect trash from a certain area.

We are promoting the ancient heritage and natural landscape of Pakistan by visiting Taxila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sites are chosen by the UNESCO committee and must "bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to civilisation", "an important interchange of human values" or be outstanding examples of major stages of Earth's history or ecological and biological processes in evolution. The entry ticket to this site enables the tourist board to preserve it.

We deliberately keep the group size to a maximum of 12 on this Pakistan tour, to ensure we minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems that we visit.

We keep our group sizes small because we want to keep the carbon emissions minimal by being able to use smaller transportation rather than coaches. This also ensures that we cause minimal harm or disruption to the environment and places we visit. Where possible we also try and use public transport such as rickshaws or walking on foot as we think this is the best way to enjoy a country and to get an authentic experience.

The Impacts of this Trip

All of our tours are carried out with local tour operators to ensure the locals benefit from the tours we operate. This tour in particular is carried out with a local female tour operator, which is part of our company's commitment to promote female empowerment.
Most of the places the attendees will eat at will be local cafes and restaurants rather than chains.

Charity: We also make a donation of 25, from every transaction to the Shahid Afridi Foundation, which is a charity that supports several local projects from sanitation, to the opening of schools in remote villages to enable the local children to have access to education with a particular focus on girls.

The entry tickets for the local monuments helps the government to maintain the upkeep and preservation of these places.

Most importantly all attendees of the tour are helping us achieve our objective to remove peoples misconception of Pakistan and becoming brand ambassadors for the country.
