Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Peru cultural tour

Environment

We have a strict environmental policy on our Peru tour 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 go on our Peru tour, we automatically make a contribution to “Carbon Clear” – an organisation who work with hundreds of organisations to measure their carbon footprint and reduce their carbon emissions.

On the fifth day of the trip you will visit Chaparri, a 35,000 hectare, natural, mountain paradise which is home to a variety of endangered species such as the Andean or spectacled bear, the guanaco and the Andean condor. Run and owned by the local community, Chaparri is a conservation and ecotourism project where local people benefit from protecting their natural resources. Additionally Chaparri is the centre for scientific investigation into dry forest ecosystems and the species that live there.

Community

In South America 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 Peru tour, we ensure that the money you spend on your trip goes directly into the local economy and local communities benefit from tourism.

As a company we 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.

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


Seeing the spectacled bear with her very young cubs. Visiting the Lord of Sipan exhibition. But we enjoyed all the historic sites

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


Be aware that the accommodation is not luxurious and can be cold at night as many do not have heating. Be prepared for spending quite a lot of time on the
road between destinations

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


e tried to buy souvenirs locally made but weight restrictions meant we couldn't purchase much. Our visit to the nature reserve to see the spectacled bears
supported local employment and conservation.

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


Excellent. Our guide in particular was wonderful.
