Our Commitment to Responsible Travel
With the increasingly focus on tourism and its impact on the environment, travel companies are very much in the spotlight. Young people today are more engaged with sustainability issues than ever before and as a responsible educational travel provider we want to ensure that wherever we can, our approach addresses the issues that matter to them and acknowledges that we all have a duty to look after our planet.
There is an understandable tendency for travel companies to claim they have the greenest credentials, but we all know it’s not as simple as that. No one can travel anywhere without jumping on a plane or a coach, and for us what matters most is what we do when we get to our destination and how we behave in the varied communities that we visit. That may be as simple as eschewing single use plastic bottles, avoiding elephant rides in India or not visiting marine parks with captive dolphins.
Responsible tourism has many facets, but we believe it has always been at the core of everything we do. We use local family operators for as many of our tours as possible. In many cases we have been working with the same small family companies for over 30 years, building relationships across generations.
