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
The distance travelled on this trip is substantial, so we use public trains for the main long journeys, and then simply the smaller, 15-25 seat coaches for the shorter distances. The coaches emit considerably less carbon that the gas-guzzling 40-50 seaters which, when combined with the public train, significantly reduces our carbon footprint. As we're using facilities which are already running, we aren't increasing the carbon emission levels for this part of the journey.

Our local leaders actively encourage travellers to use the new recycling system which separates all waste into four strict categories, and can include dismantling and cleaning of certain containers. By explaining how it is sorted they also learn how to dispose of their own rubbish in a responsible manner.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

The Impacts of this Trip

We support local artisans along the trip. During our stay in Xian we support local artisans which makes the miniature replicas of the Terrcotta Warriors. We get the chance to get 'hands on' as we learn how they're made, the have a go ourselves. There is the option to purchase crafts which will help them maintain this tradition and support their families.

Enjoying traditional meals in home-stays is a unique aspect to this trip, which includes a dumpling-making lesson. This not only helps to maintain the age-old skills of authentic China, but also financially supports the local community. This is especially important in the more rural areas we visit.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
