Responsible tourism

Israel classic small group tour

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

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 know that the environment is a major component of any local community and any negative effect on it 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.

Israel is a country which prides itself with some of the most significant holy sites in the world. Our tour guides and tour leaders instruct and encourage travelers to not pick off relics or elements of remembrance. We also encourage them to stay within the paths that were set out for visitors to walk on in order to sustain the environments surrounding the holy sites.

For us, Responsible Travel is the only way to travel

Community

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. Our 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 Israel. 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 tours.

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 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 help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and cultural exchanges that take place between the locals and our travelers during our tours.

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.

In Israel, travelers are encouraged not to tempt children or any locals with food and sweets. The culture has to be respected at all times. Travelers are encouraged to always take care of any racial and religious comments. Israel has been in political conflict with a number of countries and people may get themselves into troublesome situations if they make any racial or religious comments.

We promise to support the local community in Israel. 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 Israel. 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.

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


Too many to pick any out, we visited so many wonderful places.

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


Be prepared for quite long days, there are so many things planned during the day. It also helps if you are reasonably fit and agile, it does get very hot and there’s quite a lot of walking nvolved.

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


Our driver called at several shops and enterprises away from towns, that were run by local people.

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


Excellent, everything was organised so well. We had an excellent guide, we were never held up anywhere, tickets were obtained beforehand and things went like clockwork! We stayed in good hotels and a very good kibbutz. Highly recommended.

Seeing the old town of Jerusalem.

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


This tour requires a bit of stamina, you will see an astounding number of places in a short week!

Yes, we stayed in a Kibbutz and ate in local restaurants in villages and towns.

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


Seeing the places you have only read about, or seen on film. The authenticity of antiquity.

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


If you wish to enter the Dead Sea, water shoes or flip flops or similar are not optional; they are mandatory. The seabed is covered with salt crystals that are
very sharp and very, very painful for bare feet. Some of our group turned back quickly. I've been on the Jordanian side of the Dead Sea, which is rocky and
uncomfortable; the spot we entered the water requires water shoes or flip flops or similar.

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


At the kibbutz, we interacted with local people. Elsewhere, we had rather limited contact with locals. I can't comment on environment or conservation.

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


It's a wonderful experience to experience bucket list sites. Be prepared for crowds.
