Our partners behind this holiday promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travellers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.
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.
PlanetOn this tour in Jordan and Dubai, to help protect the environment, we avoid any domestic flights and the associated CO2 emissions as much as possible. We also conduct many of the included sightseeing tours on foot to reduce the amount of driving each day.
Drinking water and the waste associated by single use plastic water bottles is something we are working hard on in Jordan and Dubai as well as other destinations. All travellers are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and we are rolling out a program of providing large water canisters in our vehicles on group tours to take refills from. We are also offering water filtering bottles to travellers, all of which can vastly reduce waste generated by our customers both during the tour and on an ongoing basis.
Our Jordanian and Emirati guides are strict in monitoring and preventing littering to protect the sites we visit and waste bins are provided in all vehicles.
Many of the sites we visit whilst on tour are incredibly important historical and natural wonders, and we encourage our travellers to treat these sites as such, sticking to marked paths, not climbing on ruins, picking wild plants or flowers, and avoiding disturbing the local wildlife as much as possible.
PeopleWe use local Jordanian and Emirati guides whilst operating this tour, and we support the Bedouin population in Wadi Rum by using smaller locally-owned camps inside the desert reserve and using only Bedouin jeeps for safaris there. This helps to provide a much-needed source of income in a very remote part of the country where other employment options are limited.
In Jordan, we support local crafts makers and artists by visiting a couple of carefully selected local shops. Here travellers can learn about the historic methods of producing carpets and perfumed oils, and Dead Sea Products as well as purchasing souvenirs if they wish. All products sold in these shops are sourced from the surrounding local communities.
Furthermore, we provide each traveller with a tipping guide or arrange a tipping kitty that will help to ensure that those numerous people working hard to make sure our holidays run smoothly and are a great experience, are rewarded as they should be.
