Responsible tourism: Saigon to Hanoi vacation in Vietnam

Environment

All our family adventures are privately guided vacations and as such we retain a commitment to working with small group sizes. By traveling in small numbers and using expert local guides we can limit the potential for damaging ancient temples and trails.

The carbon emissions created in Vietnam by this vacation are all offset in Southeast Asia through our partnership with a local environmental charity. These offsets are paid for out of our company profits so that you can travel with a green conscience and at no extra cost to you.

Many travel companies offer their customers the chance to offset the carbon emissions from their international flights too but we have gone a step further and offer to share this cost with you 50/50. If you select to compensate for your international flight emissions when you book with us then what you put in, we put in too!

To ensure that we are offering ground-breaking itineraries and are always keeping up-to-date with the latest developments abroad, our UK staff travel regularly to our destinations. This ‘work’ also leaves a carbon footprint and we compensate for all our staff travel by donating carbon-mitigating funds to our charity partners.

Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener.

Community

In the Mekong Delta you will stay with a local Vietnamese family in their homestay accommodation. This is a fantastic learning experience and children and adults alike often mention it as one of the first things when talking to us about their trip. Using local homestays is also a great way to involve the community in tourism and to pass on the economic benefits of travel at a grassroots level.

We employ local guides and support staff who we pay fair wages, often exceeding government standards which we still consider too low, and thereby remove the reliance on tipping from travelers for livelihoods.

Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our vacations.

We encourage all our travelers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.

In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Vietnam and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travelers.
