Responsible tourism: Three Gorges cycling tour in China

Environment

Since 2010, we are proud to be CSR-certified by TourCert – a certification which demands constant improvement on corporate responsibility issues which we work hard to fulfil.

During this trip, we aim to minimise transfer by car and cover all possible distances by bicycle and foot. This will keep emmissions at a minimum while giving our participants the whole picture of China's urban, suburban and rural culture. We completely avoid domestic flights and travel from Beijing to Xi'an and from Yichang to Shanghai by train.

To limit the damage to our planet caused by long-distance flights, we cooperate with atmosfair and recommend our customers to compensate their CO2-footprint by donating to the climate protection projects supported by atmosfair.

Our tour guides are instructed to reduce waste by preferring regionally produced fruit from the market over heavily packaged goods from the supermarket. Participants as well as drivers will be advised to follow this example and use only public wastebins for disposal.

We are careful not to leave any traces of garbage or harmed plants at any place we vistit, keeping the landscape as beautiful and clean (or even cleaner) as we find it.

Community

To support local businesses and keep in close touch with the local culture, we select small and family enterprises as partners for our tours.

In Beijing, for example, we stay at the Lüsongyuan - a small hotel in a traditional Chinese courtyard located in the heart of the hutongs North of the Forbidden City. For many years we have established and fostered good and friendly ties to managers and staff of this hotel who are employed to fair conditions.

We support local structures as much as we can, employing drivers native to the places we visit who work at standard to above standard market conditions.

For food, we advise our guides to choose restaurants which serve regional dishes and buy local produce such as fruit and vegetables whenever possible.

Respect for the regional culture is one of our core concerns. Our tour guides have acquired deep knowledge of the Chinese everyday-culture and customs and will share their knowledge with the group to raise awareness and respect among towards the foreign culture. If requested by the group, the tour guide will help the participants to learn useful phrases in Chinese to enable them to engage with the locals indipendently.
