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 assist in maintaining the Romanian heritage by various means. For example, we chose hotels located in traditional or historic buildings in Sibiu and Viscri. Recently renovated, they also maintain the features of old Saxon houses, such as the tall ceiling and the eye-roof. In fact, the interior is painted in a particular style too.
- We travel in small groups, usually consisting of 4-6 people, thus minimizing the impact on society and nature. As photographers, we are not intruding into the lives of people, we are simple observers and we are respectful of all nature, people and places that we encounter along the way. We can easily blend into local communities by traveling in small groups
- Every participant is advised on ways to reduce water, energy and waste usage. For example, we provide the participants with one water bottle on the first day of the tour, after which we continuously refill it, thus reducing the use of plastic bottles
- The itineray is designed so as to reduce the number of kilometers driven. During the tour, the car used has a small engine as low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. We encourage tourists to walk in villages and towns, instead of using the car
- In Viscri and Ieud we stay at local guesthouses that produce their own food from organic sources

The Impacts of this Trip

- All the meals are included either in rural guesthouses where food is cooked from local ingredients (Viscri and Ieud) or in locally-owned restaurants
- We support locals and artisans who maintain traditional customs and occupations. We encourage them to continue their work during our visit and the guide will pay for their time by giving them money or buying goods. During this tour we will visit a glass factory, a coppersmith family and a blacksmith. We'll also see a woodcarver and visit a sheepfold.
- All suppliers are local so part of the income stays with them and jobs are enabled
- All the staff responsible for tour preparation, as well as the guide, are local. They are extremely knowledgeable and well-prepared and, as a result, we ensure they are properly remunerated. They are encouraged regularly to engage in cultural events and training courses, as well as to travel around Romania to get to know the country better.
