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
Wildlife - This tour includes a visit to the Ballestas Islands which are home to various birds and mammals. These islands are part of the Paracas Wildlife Reserve. To protect both the wildlife and the fragile environment we do not land on the Islands, instead admiring the wildlife from the boat. This does not detract from your enjoyment of this amazing site however, as the Islands are teeming with over 150 species of birds including Humboldt Penguins, Red-legged Cormorants, Pervian Boobies and Peruvian Pelicans. Depending on the season, you can also spot sea lions, dolphins and turtles. Whilst very little flora grows on the Islands, the waters are home to over 300 different types of algae which in turn attract huge colonies of fish. It is these colonies that in turn attract the birds and animals.

Transport - Whenever possible, we make use of the existing public transport system to limit our carbon footprint. On this tour, we take an overnight bus from Nazca to Arequipa. We also take tourist buses between Lima and Paracas, Colca Canyon to Puno and Puno to Cusco. Using the existing transport infrastructure is not only one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel but it also supports the local economy and brings customers a wonderfully authentic experience.

Group Size - The maximum group size on this tour is 19 people, meaning we can use smaller accommodation and have minimum impact when visiting busy sights such as Machu Picchu and Colca Canyon.

All customers are encouraged to act responsibly when staying in hotels in guesthouses, including ensuring all electricity and lights are switched off when not needed, air con is not left on, towels and bedding are not replaced unless necessary and water consumption is kept to a minimum.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

This tour includes a guided tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. During the excursion we visit a traditional Peruvian market where customers have the opportunity to purchase local handicrafts and souvenirs to further support the communities who live here. On top of this, we include a day trip to visit the communities who live on Tequila on Lake Titicaca - an island that is well known for its tradition of intricate textiles and clothing knitted by the male locals, we encourage our travellers to buy some of their the high-quality handicrafts to help support this important part of their cultural heritage and livelihood.

Community and contributing to the economies which we visit is always at the forefront of what we do. This is why we always ask travellers to think about the consequences of where they buy from, who they are supporting and the impact they are having during their holiday. Another large part of our ethos is travelling with respect, educating the traveller and embracing different cultures around the world. As well as in-depth policies online that outline how customers can have a positive impact on the communities that we visit, our tour leaders are passionate about sharing their destinations and educating travellers along the way. This tour uses a local Peruvian tour leader to guide you through each location, which provides the best first-hand knowledge on the locations visited and in turn supports local employment.

Travelling with Respect – On our website’s responsible travel pages we provide a list of tips on creating good relationships between our travellers and the local communities that we visit on our tours. For example, for this tour we would recommend that clients learn some Spanish to try and connect with the local people, and we would advise researching the history, religion and local traditions of Peru to help them appreciate the architecture and culture of those countries and thereby get the most from their trip while respecting local customs.
