1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Cultural Aborigenal tour at Uluru. Great second night at Kingís Canyon since lovely spot and possibility to make a fire.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?




3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Helped local people hopefully. Unfortunately a lot of food being thrown away. Travellers could keep at least their towel for the whole trip.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Competent guide, but not too much local knowledge shared during trips - which I would have expected. Not knowing in advance where we would sleep, we missed out on going to light fields in Yulara, big disappointment. People should be made aware of where the last spot with phone service for the day is, since some may need to contact family.Guides are put under enourmous stress, having to wake up early, hike and then drive long distances. This proved to be dangerous. Great places to visit, not the best tour.

Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

During our trip, our group leaders take active steps to ensure our groups behave in an environmentally responsible manner, such as sticking to established trails, not leaving anything behind and not removing any plants. They are also always eager to share information about their country and culture.

Our local partners in Central Australia are committed to preserving the fragile desert environment and are well versed in ways of minimising the impact of activities such as driving through remote areas and camping in the bush.

Before travellers are taken to Uluru, they learn about the indigenous culture of the area at the Interpretive Centre and are encouraged to not climb the rock but to walk at the base in line with requests by the traditional owners.

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a Ďtake in, take back outí waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.

People

The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world through which we are journeying, this is our commitment as a global tour operator.

As a company, our responsibilities donít stop when our tours end. We run and support a variety of projects globally, from healthcare, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and environmental and wildlife protection. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 11 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.
