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.
Public transport is our main mode of transport on the trip - this helps us keep the carbon footprint low and it's also a fantastic way to live life as a local would and also perhaps mingle with them! There is a lot of walking within the locations where you stop and sometimes from location to location- a relaxing and slower paced visit with a little bit of exercise and keeping your carbon footprint low.
We stay in locally run hostels and accommodations that are passionate about helping to do as much as they can for the environment. On our 9 Day tour you will stay in hostels, guesthouses and in the warmer months, you will camp on the great wall - which is a magical experience and also one where you will be using as little resources as possible. Whilst you’re staying in each of these places, we encourage you to use local services on offer, this way your money goes straight into the local community and economy.
Throughout the trip we ask our travellers treat any wildlife with respect so they do not feel threatened in any way.
Tap water is not drinkable but we always suggest packing a reusable water bottle that you can use at filtered water refill points to ensure you have water on hand at all times and help minimise the trail of plastic left behind where possible. We also recommend packing as light as possible, to help keep your carbon footprint low.
PeopleLocal tour guides:
By hiring local tour guides we help support the local people and provide employment opportunities.
You’ll learn about the local cuisine by trying out the different restaurants. If you’re in the mood for some Chinese style entertainment then definitely try an overnight Karaoke experience. Just ask our local guide - they will tell you everything a local would do so you can check out the activities and invest in the local community.
As a sign of respect, we think that it is important for travellers to learn a few key words or phrases in the native language, so we offer a written language guide in China.
All of our customers’ interactions are with local suppliers, and we promote integration between travellers and local people through our “unmissable” included activities and our optional activities, and opportunities for authentic cultural immersion.
Our Adventure Leaders are trained in ensuring that customers are aware of local customs and traditions, educating them on when it is appropriate to take photos and/or videos.
