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


Just being in the Himalayas trekking was a most awesome experience.

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


Make sure you get a fluent English speaker for a guide and one with experience
and true enjoyment doing what he/she does.

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


I am not sure.....it seemed this was booked then booked with another company and then booked again with a local company so I am not sure how much went back to Nepal and the people there.

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

Hi Kat,

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent tour to Nepal. I wanted to follow up on the comments you made relating to the way that our tours benefit the local communities and economy as much as this goes on behind the scenes and may not always be obvious to clients traveling with us.

- In Nepal and all of the countries in which we operate, we use local operatives and organisations as much as possible in the day to day running of our tours. This ensures we provide employment and generates and income for the local tour companies we use. In Nepal we have worked with one local family in particular over the last 15 years, starting by employing people directly, and then helping them to start and build their own trekking agency.

- As part of our code of practice we support various local and international organisations, NGO's and charities, related to the areas in which we operate. The booking of any of our tours will include a donation of at least UK£2 p/p to one of the causes we support. In Nepal the main organisations we support are: Shree Nalang Primary School Project, Bardia Eco-Lodge projects, KEEP (The Kathmandu Environmental Education Project), IPPG (International Porter Protection Group) and the Himalayan Rescue Association.

- We use locally produced materials wherever possible. When foreign equipment is used we aim to use that equipment which is owned by local operatives/organisations.

- In Nepal (and some other destinations) we try to use public transport wherever it is possible for us to do so.

- We have been actively involved and provided financial support towards the development of Bardia Eco-Lodge in the west of Nepal. This project provides local employment in Bardia, and shows examples of possible eco-friendly building and operational techniques to other lodges in Bardia.

I hope that this helps to explain our policy on responsible tourism in Nepal
and the way that our tours benefit the local people.

Thanks again for choosing to travel with us!

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

How our company is making a difference:
We know that making the positive difference we aim to achieve will not be an easy task. However, our enthusiasm and commitment towards our travel responsibility mission is far stronger than any obstacles. We believe that in order to achieve any objective, the company has to have accurate policies and procedures for the employees and the guests to follow in order to reach our goal.

We have decided that the environment is a major component of any local community and any negative effect on the environment would directly have an impact on the lives of the inhabitants of the local community. Therefore, we have drawn up a strict environmental protection policy that all our employees and travelers have to abide by. For example, we recycle empty ink cartridges. A company collects them and disposes of them the correct manner.

As part of our Nepal tour, our travelers get the opportunity to experience water rafting. This is where we brief them well with regards to throwing waste from food or plastic bottles into the river. They also visit wild life parks during the trip and again, any littering could cause serious danger to the wild animals if they try to eat it out of curiosity.

We refrain from using "bush toilets" and we encourage travelers to only make use of the toilet facilities in the villages. The fact that we have these villages at our disposal means we use solar heated water for showering rather than water heated by burning wood.

For us, Responsible Travel is the only way to travel.

People

Throughout our long tourism business journey, exceeding 15 years of travel operation in the Middle East, we have succeeded in establishing strong links with the communities we are dealing with in the host destinations.

We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both the travelers and the local community gaining benefits. We benefit the local communities we visit using a wide scope of activities that have a positive impact on the local economy, directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.

We promise to support the local community of every destination we take our travelers to. We will do this by employing local guides, using local handicraft shops and recommend shops to our travelers so that their vacation spending contributes to the people of that country. Furthermore, we provide each traveler with a tipping guide. By doing this we set a concept of tipping and gratuity for every person who will offer a form of service to the traveler.

We have also considered the social aspect of the local community and how to respect the customs and traditions of the inhabitants helping us operate our tours. We always provide our guests with all the information needed to understand the community they are visiting and we create valuable opportunities for the travelers and the locals to mingle and exchange ideas and thoughts.

The first objective is to operate our tours in the most perfect way possible. Our second objective, but not second in importance, is to benefit the local community, protect the environment, and have a positive social impact on the inhabitants living in our host destinations. One of the ways of doing this is to inform and educate our travelers on the cultures of the destinations. By doing this we aim to create a form of respect between the travelers and the local citizens who they will face along their tour.

We educate all our staff on the real life situations of each destination. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and threats that they may face. By creating long lasting relationships with our local ground handlers, we are able to establish what needs the community has and through their information we can inform our travelers what they can contribute to the local community from their home countries.
