Responsible tourism: Short break to the Balkans

Environment

This tour includes visit of two UNESCO protected towns : Kotor and Kotor Bay area and Dubrovnik Each of them features unique cultural and historic values, which require corresponding attitude from visitors. We want our vacations to be high impact in experience but low impact on the environment!

Working together with our local guides and companies we will continue to support local community in effort to keep their cultural heritage free of all pollution and generate enough income from sustainable tourism. By including the opportunity to visit these towns on this vacation we choose to contribute to the excellent record of conservation in recent years through the entrance fees and museum tickets.

All of our guides are aware of their surrounding and they are constantly providing the travelers with suggestions of how to minimize potential negative impacts to the environment and marine ecosystems. Our guides emphasize the importance of leaving the environment as it is. For example we encourage our guests to use re-fill able water bottles, since tab water is drinkable in Montenegro.

As a company we employ responsible policies such as recycling paper, ink cartridges, glass and cardboard; we minimize the use of electricity and conducting the vast majority of our correspondence and promotion via the internet and email, minimizing the amount of paper used for our activities.

Community

Our company is run by a local family. Our restaurant uses local produce and the staff are mostly from the area.
All our tours ensure that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers, we use family owned hotel or apartments). We use local transfer services, buy food from the small farms and work on developing responsible tourism management in our region.

We closely cooperate with local cultural institutions and we point our visitors towards local cultural festivals (Kotor Art Festival, Don Branko music days)and similar manifestations. We also suggest to our travelers visits to historically, culturally and environmentally important sights (Old Town of Kotor,
Villages Muo, Prcanj Stoliv, Town of Perast, National park Lovcen, National park Durmitor).

Our agency is included in a program which employs young people who have just finished college . This program is organized by Montenegrin Government in order to provide first practice experience and getting skills which one should have to be able to work in tourism.

We participate in local projects such as Honey trails. An aim of this project is to promote all advantages of local honey products.
