Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Japan luxury vacation

Environment

- We use hotels that share our ethics and responsible travel practices through the use of sustainable and local resources and produce where possible.

- Many of our transfers in Japan are via bullet train, rather than private vehicles.

- We use responsible guides and drivers who encourage our clients to respect the environment they're visiting - for example, no littering.

- We actively discourage clients from doing anything we consider at odds with our ethics, for example visiting certain wild animal sanctuaries or zoos. When photographing wildlife - for example, the snow monkeys in Japan - we encourage our clients to keep their distance and be respectful of the animals to avoid harassment.

- We encourage guests to take tours on foot or on bicycles to cut down on our carbon emissions.

- For each of our Asia trips sold, we donate money to a school charity based in Myanmar and a conservation project in Borneo. Our environmental charity in Borneo is the World Land Trust (worldlandtrust.org/projects/malaysia), which supports conservation in Malaysian Borneo and protects the local wildlife and the rainforest, which is at constant threat of deforestation.

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 lodges 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.

- When our clients want to shop, we direct them to local, boutique stores in which they will be supporting the local economy and buying authentic goods.

- For each of our Asia trips sold, we donate money to a school charity based in Myanmar. Our school charity in Myanmar is Building Schools for Burma (buildingschoolsforburma.org), which funds and constructs schools in particularly remote and poor areas of the country.
