Responsible travel

Making friends with localsResponsible travel is about the attitude you take and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their culture and economy, as well as the environment.

We mostly take public transport, stay and eat in small-scale, local establishments, travel in small groups, and spread the word of sustainable tourism wherever we can. And every year we evaluate each trip to ensure its full compliance with our Responsible Travel Code of Conduct.

Taking these small steps, we're able to make a big difference. And that goes for the whole trip experience too. Our travellers get to meet local people and really get to know their culture first hand, directly contributing to local economies and helping to develop cross-cultural understanding.
