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
The small size of these cruise vessels and the small passenger numbers ensures that any detrimental social and environmental impacts are minimised whilst allowing the passengers to visit smaller communities that donít usually benefit from this form of tourism. This also enables small communities to host tourists without the need for building hotels and other infrastructure that may be required.

Sail power has very obvious ecological benefits, vastly reducing the carbon used in any form of travel as well as reducing emissions. All the crews are experienced sailors and love to sail if possible. Although we cannot use the sails all the time and in all conditions, they do provide a welcome benefit.

All the food on board is bought locally; fruit, vegetables, plenty of fish, shellfish and other seafood, meat and other staples are all locally grown and produced, and much of it is bought from small retailers or even directly from the grower or fisherman. This has a threefold benefit of reducing food miles, supporting local communities and providing our customers with very fresh food.

Any rubbish and waste generated on the vessel is disposed of responsibly on shore in an appropriate manner.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We encourage all our passengers to engage with the local community on a social and economic level to ensure that this tourism has a benefit to both the visitors and the hosts.

Most tourists to this part of the world stay (and often donít leave) some large resorts in a few restricted locations, so by enabling our passengers to visit some different areas without putting any strain on local amenities, we are spreading the financial benefits and the load of our visit.

The shipís managers buy all of their produce as possible from local communities, and will also encourage our passengers to spend money in the communities that we visit. By trying some local fruit juice instead of a well known American brand of soft drink, you will support the economy, it will be better for you and who knows, you might find you enjoy it more too.

We will endeavour to maximise the benefits of tourism and to minimise or eradicate any downside, socially, environmentally & economically.

We will encourage our passengers to learn and understand as much as possible about the local traditions, language and way of life to enable them to appreciate the reality of life in this part of the world. The cruise manager will ask any questions about the region, and will keep all of the passengers updated, not just with the day to day itinerary, but with in depth information about the history and way of life of the local communities.

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


The cruise itself and the overall experience, which was generally excellent in all regards. It was also a very pleasant group of passengers on the ship.

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


Give particular attention to the time of year that you choose for your cruise. We went during the second last week of the season, the week of September 21,
when the temperature was in the high 20s/low teens C. It would be far too hot to do such a cruise in July or August when you may have to sleep on deck.
Second, consider the kind of cruise experience that you want. Ours was very relaxing, with lots of swimming and some shopping. The amount of shopping
was adequate, but our particular itinerary was a bit light on ancient history as we visited only one archaeological zone outside of Bodrum. Third, consider
the type of vessel that you want. Our ship, the Flax VII, was not "super-luxury", but was still a beautiful and well-appointed vessel that was very nice for the
price with an excellent crew.

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


All ship supplies were purchased locally. Local shopping stops also helped local merchants and much of the goods available were made locally. The captain
and crew were also mainly local people.

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


As noted above, overall it was excellent and generally exceeded our expectations. I would also note we had no prior knowledge of or experience with either Responsible Travel or the operator or about our ship, the Flas VII. We would not hesitate to recommend them to others or to book another vacation through either of them.

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


The courteous and attentive service of Captain Levent and his crew is beyond expectation.

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


No need to have second thought in joining this luxury Gulet Aegean Cruise. Meals on board were excellent - different main course dinner menu for the whole week.

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


To a certain extent, e.g., souvenir purchases, castle / church entrance fees, etc. Hardly any spendings on food and drinks as all meals included on board.

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


Excellent - major part due to like mind travelers on board.

Reviewed on 22 Oct 2019 by

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


Sailing in the gulet and enjoying the scenery

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


Plan your shore activities, perhaps including a dinner ashore. These were not included in the cruise.

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


Not particularly. Apart from calling taxis, the crew did not organize any interactions with locals. On the positive side, the use of disposable plastic and paper products was kept to a minimum.

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


Good food but little variation. Very clean boat and comfortable accommodation. Too much time spent moored offshore.
