Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Family vacation to China

Responsible mission
As adventure travelers we relish and celebrate the diversity of the world. We also recognise our obligation to protect the environments that we explore. Our aim is to tread lightly, whilst contributing to maintain the world’s culture and nature, and most importantly to engage the help of all our customers to utilise the potential of tourism as a tool to aid sustainable development. We believe that responsible travelers are welcome in the places that they visit.

On this trip
We stay in small locally-run hotels and eat in local restaurants. We use a local Chinese agent, driver and a Local Group Leader. This fulfils part of our commitment to make a positive contribution to the local economy and is the best way of ensuring that our money reaches as many people as possible. Local overseas leaders offer a great way to find out more about the local culture, speak the language, understand the day-to-day life around them and help to ‘open doors’ to a fuller experience. The Local Group Leaders have a set of environmental guidelines that they work with and will share this information with you during your trip.

Responsible code
Being Responsible is at the heart of everything our company does - full details of our code can be found on our website. The local supplier for this trip will promote our responsible travel code throughout your adventure. You will also receive specific information on this trip’s responsibility in your trip notes.

Helping to minimise negative impact
All of our customers are invited to offset their international flight emissions. Contributions go to the Blue Ventures Carbon Offset program, a non-profit organisation which provides solar stoves for subsistence communities in Madagascar, benefiting the people and protecting the environment. We also contribute £2 per person towards offsetting of your in-country travel. We fully offset all emissions from our staff travel and run an energy efficient office.

Giving something back
We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. You as a customer choose where these funds are used from a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation.

Partnerships
As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practices throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation. We partner with many small grassroots projects throughout the destinations that we visit - they all share our responsible vision.

Reviewed on 25 Apr 2017 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


I can honestly say that we enjoyed it all. The quality of guiding and activities was good. Our local tour leader did a great job and was responsive to our needs
- the structure and organisation enabled us to pack a lot in to the 14 days. It is really hard to pick favourites but Hong Kong was probably the least favourite
part and we would have preferred more time elsewhere. The cultural/historical visits were enough to inform and illuminate without becoming too lengthy
for children. The visit to the school in Xian was really lovely. My daughter particularly liked the bike ride in Yangshou, my husband loved the cormorant
fishing. Cooking school and Tai Chi were fun.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Ask to book the optional evening river trip with cormorant fishing at Yangshou (after the bike ride) - not shown on the itinerary but our local guide organised
it for us because we asked if we could fit in a river trip. 70 minutes on river at a quiet time of the day, meal in local family house followed by cormorant fishing
demonstration - a chance to see something thrilling and unique with the added bonus of water buffalo wallowing in the river.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, local people - guiding, trips and activities were run by local individuals.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


A fascinating country and really interesting trip on many levels. We liked the variety and overall mix of activities, culture, history, modes of travel and
wildlife. It would have been nice to stay in the countryside or a quieter spot in Yangshou - downtown Yangshou is a tourist hot spot, busy with plenty of
people wanting the noisy and somewhat tacky experience offered in and around west street. It was interesting in its own way but the surrounding rural
areas were more in keeping with what was promoted in the trip notes and staying in the countryside would have been welcome as all the other stops on this
tour are in big cities. It would also be good if the river trip and cormorant fishing were built in to future tours as this is a unique feature of the Guilin area.
