Vacation information

LGBTQIA+
Our partners behind this vacation promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travelers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.

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 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.

In Peru, we encourage our travelers to not contribute to the already excessive rubbish that floods the cities. We brief them on the best means of disposing of empty water bottles and food wrappers.

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 in the correct manner.

Deforestation, pollution and endangered species are the most important environmental issues that Peru faces. Our travelers are encouraged not to smoke in forests, as well as stay in the walking trails at all times. We warn them of the dangers of forest fires if they were to expose of cigarette buds in a careless manner. While in the forests, they should never pick any flowers or attempt to kill bugs. These may be on the list of endangered species.

Water Pollution is one of the major concerns that the Peru environment faces. It is just a small act from a traveler to refrain from throwing any waste into the streams and rivers. The same goes for dumping waste in the forests that are traveled through and camped in by our tours.

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

People

We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both our 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 directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belong to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people in local communities offer.

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.

We educate all our staff on the real life situations in Peru. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and dangers 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.

Poverty is one of the main problems in Peru. Children and women are affected as well as men. We are always searching for means by which we can find donation opportunities by which our travelers can donate knowing that the money will reach the right people.

In Peru, travelers are encouraged not to tempt children or any locals with food and sweets. The culture has to be respected at all times.

Tourism plays a vital role in contributing to Peru's economy and providing employment, but schooling is yet to be acknowledged. We encourage our travelers to always take school stationary with them that they may hand over to the organizers of these initiatives to support schools
