Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Exciting family vacation in Jordan


Our tours in Jordan are run in conjunction with a local partner that share our environmental goals and commitment to operate in a responsible manner.
There are many fragile eco-systems in Jordan and our guides and drivers provide advice on how to behave to ensure that any negative impact is prevented. For example, on our longer camel safaris we bring (dead) firewood with us so that we can have a campfire at night without trying to source wood locally. We also ensure that all waste is taken out of the desert at the end of an excursion (except in the case of toilet paper, which we advise clients to burn safely, ensuring that none remains).
Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. The majority of our staff either walk or cycle to work and we operate a primarily paper free environment. We do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.


All of our tours in Jordan use local guides which is very important as it not only ensures that travelers are given a unique insight into the way of life and culture in Jordan but also ensures that tourist revenue is retained locally.
Whenever it is possible, we also try to use small locally-owned and family run hotels. These hotels not only provide a better experience for families but also tend to employ from the surrounding villages, ensuring that money is retained locally and spread throughout the area.
Where possible, hotels are selected that have been built and furnished using locally sourced materials.
As Jordan is a Muslim country it is important that correct advice is given on how to dress; our pre-tour literature covers this in detail, ensuring that travelers (particularly women) know what is appropriate. We also give advice on how to behave during Ramadan (if applicable given the time of year of travel).
