Responsible tourism: Morocco Fez culinary tour, 4 days
This trip aims to give our customers a memorable connection to the culture and the people of Morocco, while highlighting the uniqueness of this magnificent country.
Our clients’ requirements are of primary importance to us at all times, as we know that our growth and success depend on their continued support. Having travelled extensively ourselves and witnessed first-hand how tourism can have either positive or negative effects on local communities; we vowed to always endeavor to leave a positive mark on all places we visit and send clients.
On the road: Many of the riads and hotels we work with ask clients if they want items laundered before simply washing towels and linens unnecessarily, to conserve water. We also visit authentic desert camps far removed from the tourist trail, that make the most of their natural surroundings and take care of the desert.
We strive to operate as a paperless company as far as possible, and recycle wherever facilities are available. We use toxic-free fair trade products whenever we can.
This tour has been designed to both operate in a way that minimises our impact on the environment that we visit and to maximise the benefit that our clients can have on the host community. We endeavour to follow responsible guidelines, as with all trips. Guests will be briefed on responsible tourism at the start of the trip, and encouraged to be mindful of the environment and respectful of local people and culture.
While we are there: We will create the unique experience of learning the art of Moroccan cuisine directly from a local family. It is a wonderful way to immerse oneself in the authentic culture and connect with the local residents. We will also see stunning historic sites and archaeology, and taste local olive oils and cheeses that are unique to the area and will help promote local businesses.
Where we stay: As a boutique travel company we recommend unique and authentic travel experiences. We recommend local accommodation, especially boutique riads, that will add to the uniqueness and sense of adventure of the trip and we therefore encourage our clients to stay in privately owned accommodation where possible to support the local community. Where the hotel owners source staff, produce, products and other services from within the local community. This gives the local people an opportunity to gain financially from the increase in tourism in the area.
While we are there: We encourage our clients to have a truly immersive experience as well as support the livelihood of the local community. While in Fez you will experience the traditional neighbourhoods and culture.
We ensure guests have opportunities to purchase locally produced traditional crafts at the source, ensuring maximum financial benefit to producers and artisans. We travel in small groups to ensure our customers can interact with locals in a meaningful way and to ensure that any impact on local communities is minimised.
Typically with all our tailor-made trips to destinations we enjoy offering new routes and encourage travel to areas that are not on the main tourist trails and further support communities.
