Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Bolivia vacation, tailor made

Environment

Awarded the prestigious 5 star RT status by AITO (Association of Independent Tour operators), responsible tourism has always been an integral part of our company ethos and our adventures are designed with the local people, culture and eco-system in mind.

Our trips endeavour to provide clients with as much exposure to the beauty and culture of the countries we visit as we can, whilst we are aware that this can sometimes have a negative impact on the host country, we try our best to keep this impact to a minimum. In this tour we opt for city walking tours as well as half day treks to visit pre-Inca ruins or discover the islands, and use public transport in the form of an overnight sleeper train. This not only allows us to see this beautiful country from a different perspective, but also helps to reduce harm from pollution, noise and traffic in both urban and rural areas.

Community

By incorporating home-stays, locally owned hotels, restaurants and the services of guides into our itineraries, we ensure that money goes directly into the local economy and local communities benefit from tourism

We encourage our clients to positively contribute towards the local economy and community by visiting local markets, and our stops at the Tarabuco market, the markets of La Paz as well as visiting the floating reed island communities provide a great opportunity to discover and purchase a variety of traditional Bolivian handicrafts and interact with the locals. Through using local markets and shops we can be sure that all income is going directly back into sustaining the local economy and supporting the community.

On this trip, visits to places like the silver mines in Potosí gives us an insight into the plight of the miners and their daily working conditions. Whilst there, clients will have the opportunity to learn about and contribute towards charities that support local families who have lost family members in the mines. What's more, on the floating island of Urus-Iruitus on Lake Titicaca, you will have the chance to visit a community project that has been set up to help support the islanders in sustaining their traditional ways of life.
