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.
PlanetIn keeping with our Responsible Travel policy you will stay in carefully selected locally-owned accommodation - we put your money into the local economy and small businesses, not state-owned companies or corporate chains. We use public transport throughout this trip, not only minimising the environmental impact of our journey but also creating concrete opportunities to interact with the locals.
We will visit the National Park of the Cinque Terre, learning about the conservation project and marine preservation zone, contributing to the maintenance of this important and historical area.
PeopleWe will also introduce you to our local friends, such as Alberto who sells wine ‘sfuso’ or direct from the barrel. Reuse your water bottle by having Alberto refill it with the wine of your choice. We are welcomed into Giorgio and Giovanna’s home to discover the process of making real balsamic vinegar – a traditional art practiced by a few Modenese families in their own homes - the end product bears no relation to the mass-produced balsamic vinegar that most people are familiar with.
We provide all our travelers with specific information about how to be a responsible traveler on this trip. Our group leaders are passionately responsible travelers. Those who wish to contribute further after their travels can do so through the our foundation which supports environmental and social projects, making a difference to communities around the world.
