1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
The mix of everything, the balance was perfect, especially since we only had a week.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Go for it!
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
It did benefit local people. But it could have had less environmental impacts by giving the opportunity to refill water in re-usable bottles.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
We had very high expectations, but the tour exceeded them all.
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.
PlanetOn this tour in Jordan, to help protect the environment, we avoid any domestic flights. and the associated CO2 emissions as much as possible. We also conduct many of the included sightseeing tours on foot to reduce the amount of driving each day.
Drinking water and the waste associated by single use plastic water bottles is something we are working hard on in Jordan as well as other destinations. All travelers are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and we are rolling out a program of providing large water canisters in our vehicles on group tours to take refills from. We are also offering water filtering bottles to travelers, all of which can vastly reduce waste generated by our customers both during the tour and on an ongoing basis.
Our Jordan guides are strict in monitoring and preventing littering to protect the sites we visit and waste bins are provided in all vehicles.
Many of the sites we visit whilst in Jordan are incredibly important historical and natural wonders, and we encourage our travelers to treat these sites as such, sticking to marked paths, not climbing on ruins, picking wild plants or flowers, and avoiding disturbing the local wildlife as much as possible.
PeopleOur Jordan tours are all run by local Jordanian guides, and we support the Bedouin population in Wadi Rum by using smaller locally-owned camps inside the desert reserve and using only Bedouin jeeps for safaris there. This helps to provide a much-needed source of income in a very remote part of the country where other employment options are limited.
In Jordan, we support local crafts makers and artists by visiting a couple of carefully selected local shops. Here travelers can learn about the historic methods of producing carpets and perfumed oils, and Dead Sea Products as well as purchasing souvenirs if they wish. All products sold in these shops are sourced from the surrounding local communities.
Furthermore, we provide each traveler with a tipping guide or arrange a tipping kitty that will help to ensure that those numerous people working hard to make sure our vacations run smoothly and are a great experience, are rewarded as they should be.
