Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Galapagos and Machu Picchu family adventure vacation

Environment

- Trips and cruises in the Galapagos are strictly controlled and the hotels we use are all eco-friendly and responsible, leaving as small a footprint as possible. This might be through use of solar power or using as much locally acquired resources and produce as possible.

- Wildlife in the Galapagos Islands is protected by strict guidelines. For example, animals are sheltered from harassment thanks to tourism control and a limited amount of people gathering around one site.

- Family trips to the Galapagos have the added advantage of teaching children - and adults - about the environment and how important it is to protect it. Naturalists on board the ships we use are experts in the Galapagos ecosystem and through education, we help our clients to become more aware and in tune with the natural world.

- For each of our Latin America trips sold, we donate money to a wildlife rescue project in Costa Rica. Our environmental charity in Costa Rica is Kids Saving the Rainforest (kidssavingtherainforest.org), which rescues and rehabilitates injured and orphaned animals.

Community

- Our guides are locals, which helps us support and sustain the local economy through tourism in a long-term way. It also gives our clients a more authentic experience of a destination and a chance to meet local people, aiding their knowledge of the place and culture. This understanding is key for people to get the most out of a trip and to firm up relationships between locals and tourists.

- The hotels and boats we use are staffed by locals, which follows on from our own policy to only use local guides. This serves to empower the community and create long-term, stable and well-paid jobs.

- For each of our Latin America trips sold, we donate money to a school charity based in Ecuador. Our school charity in Ecuador is the Condor Trust (condortrust.org), which helps encourage low-income families to send their children to school. The funds provide uniforms, school materials and books for the children.
