How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
Economic responsibilityWe aim to work with local suppliers and local service providers wherever possible.
We hire local guides.
We endeavour to place our guests at the heart of the local communities by using small and medium locally-run and locally-owned accommodation providers.
We get involved in projects that benefit the local communities in the economic, social or environmental sphere.
Environmental responsibilityAll our activities are run with respect to the environment, making sure that the volume of participants and type of tourism we offer doesn't have any negative impact on local conditions and infrastructure.
We aim to work with suppliers, communities and organisations, which are committed to environmental protection.
We give priority to public transport (where available) and optimise the itinerary to reduce the carbon footprint.
Our "print on demand rule" means we prefer digital content management over traditional paper and we choose to print information only according to the needs of our stakeholders.
We are keen on recycling, energy-saving solutions and minimising litter, water and atmospheric pollution both in our office and at any specific tourism activity we provide.
Social responsibilityWe provide our customers with quality and adequate information on destinations they visit, to increase understanding of local culture, its problems and facilitate cultural exchange with local people.
We try to educate our customers by providing them guidelines on how to travel responsibly. Information is available on our tours and on our website (look for Travel Tips).
We encourage our staff to act sustainably and train them on the most efficient ways to do it.
We actively participate in discussions about sustainability and responsible tourism, providing feedback and sharing our experiences.
We aim to cooperate with our partners and stakeholders to ensure sustainable supply chain management.
