Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Iran vacation

We have a strict environmental policy to make sure that the environments we visit are not damaged or spoilt in any way. All our guides are trained to uphold this policy and all clients are fully briefed on appropriate/responsible behaviour whilst in wilderness areas. Our “Leave No Trace” ethic is applied to all trips in all regions and, as tour operators, is something we are careful to promote.

When you take one of our trips, we make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation who work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint and reduce their carbon emissions.

In Iran we use local ground handlers - this means that all the operational costs go directly into the local economy and helps to improve employment opportunities in remote regions. By incorporating home-stays, locally owned hotels, restaurants and the services of guides and drivers into our itineraries, we ensure that money you spend on your trip goes directly into the local economy and local communities benefit from tourism.

Our company also supports emergency relief efforts in the areas we travel to, such as the Pakistan Earthquake Fund set up in 2005 and a variety of other community benefiting NGOs around the world. We also support several other NGOs around the world such as the Hope Foundation, Tibetan schools trust and Adopt-A-Minefield, which are all carefully selected to improve the standard of living for the communities we visit. There are full details of these on the Responsible Tourism page on our website.

Reviews of Iran vacation

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


The homestay was a real highlight. We were also invited to Asura events in Yazd, where we were made very welcome and got to experience the local events.

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


Lots of people will look at you as if you are mad when you tell them that you are going on vacation to Iran and suggests that it is very dangerous. Ignore them. I have never been to a place where people are so pleased to meet tourists, particularly British ones.

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


I think that this trip benefits local people by using local businesses, particularly the home stay and the local restaurants. We also used local guides in places and visited villages where the visit would also have supported the local economy.

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


We really enjoyed this trip. The history is fascinating, the architecture is beautiful, and the people genuinely welcoming and friendly. The only point to be prepared for is that the food, whilst reasonably tasty, isn't varied and you tend to get the same things everywhere. That is not a criticism of the trip, but is just the nature of the sort of food served in restaurants in Iran.
