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.
PlanetAll our adventures are privately guided vacations and as such we retain a commitment to working with small group sizes. By traveling in small numbers and using expert local guides we can limit the potential for damaging ancient temples and trails.
You will visit several world heritage sites on this itinerary, including Luang Prabang in Laos, the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia, and the Cu Chi Tunnels in Vietnam. In our detailed pre-departure travel pack we have included a note to remind you not leave any litter around these environments – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to wildlife.
On your adventure you will also visit an authentic floating village on Tonle Sap Lake to experience a glimpse into a traditional way of life in Cambodia. Some tour companies take travelers to artificially created villages which have been built to be easily accessible all year round. Unfortunately this has also created unnatural effects on local ecosystems and we refuse to be a part of this practice.
We aim to reduce transport emissions on this trip through boat transportation. Instead of taking a car, you’ll travel down the Mekong river in Laos on a private boat for two days, cruising past beautiful jungle scenery and traditional villages.
Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener, including encouraging travelers to bring reusable water bottles on their vacation.
PeopleTalk to one of our tailor-made specialists and ask us about Packing for a Purpose. This initiative allows you to use some of your luggage space to take supplies to partnered accommodations on your itinerary. Your accommodations will then pass on these supplies to projects in the local community such as schools, orphanages and health clinics.
We employ local guides and support staff who we pay fair wages, often exceeding government standards which we still consider too low, and thereby remove the reliance on tipping from travelers for livelihoods.
Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our vacations.
We encourage all our travelers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.
In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.
