Hi Rob, thank you for your review. We’re delighted to hear that you enjoyed your vacation and found Antoine to be a fantastic local leader.
We appreciate your concerns regarding the environmental impact and conservation support of this tour. Our aim is to tread as lightly as possible on the destinations we visit. This tour is designed to immerse our customers in the beautiful nature of the Andorras, with low-impact, adventurous activities, and modes of travel like hiking, biking and rafting. Whilst private transport is integrated into the tour to get our customers from A to B, we do closely measure our carbon emissions. This allows us to minimize our carbon emissions wherever possible. Furthermore, we also recognize the global impacts that single-use plastic causes, which is why we minimize plastic waste as much as possible on our trips. For example, our leaders buy large water jugs for our travelers rather than supporting the purchases of individual single-use water bottles.
Thanks again for your review and feedback, we hope to welcome you on another adventure in the future.
