Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We are continually increasing our range of public transport vacations for those who actively choose to travel on low-carbon methods of transport. This fortnight-long vacation is a unique touring vacation for car-free visitors. We grapple with the complicated timetables to ensure a relaxing journey throughout, on both regular and first-class steam services, all the while leaving the car at home. Train journeys are only supplemented by road transfers to access locations beyond the end of the train line, plus a small number of private tours to enhance the experience further. Two of the private guided activities are walking tours, aiding you to explore Conwy and Tenby with a very limited environmental impact.

We take the utmost care to choose local business partners who share our values and commitment to sustainable travel. We predominantly market our vacations via the internet. We produce a small quantity of compact brochures each year for past customers and inquirers. Anything we do have left over, we ensure is recycled.

The Impacts of this Trip

For us, true sustainability means promoting and helping to maintain a way of life in remote, often rural locations, where the economic benefit from tourism can make a genuine difference. Thatís why we work almost exclusively with local, family-run businesses, not with large corporate organisations. The accommodation chosen takes you a little off the beaten tourist track, so that you will have a more authentic experience. On this trip we have included a number of private guided tours, all of which are led by local guides that we have handpicked due to their knowledge and dedication to their community. We are members of AITO, the Association of Independent Tour Operators, and adhere to their strict code of conduct.

We directly employ a small team of local people in Glasgow, who travel to work by public transport, cycling or on foot. We ensure staff undertake at least two recce visits in a year so that we can always recommend and include the best local experiences and restaurants throughout Scotland, England, Ireland & Wales. All staff share our values of environmental and sustainable responsibility.
