1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
Lovely city and a lovely art teacher.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
It made us travel to Brasov, what we otherwise not have done. So I guess it's good for the local economy and to support this organization in other projects.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
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.
PlanetSupporting local wildlife
We work with a bear sanctuary and dog shelter close to Brasov to offer our support to local wildlife conservation. We encourage participants to visit the bear sanctuary as tourists to learn more about the fate of bears in Eastern Europe.
Protecting the world
We are passionate about encouraging our travelers to be kind to the environment as they travel. Each participant receives advice about how to care for the environment whilst they are away. This includes water usage, how to avoid single use plastic, and electricity usage.
We insist that all participants bring their own water bottles when they travel with us, and clean free water is always available. We have even created a water bottle that can be purchased before departure and encourage people to use it at all stages of their journey including at the airport, on flights and whilst on their project. We are striving for all of our projects to be free of single use plastic.
PeopleMeeting local needs
We have been running programmes in and around Brasov since 2000 and have long-standing relationships with local people. We try to spread the employment opportunities around local people, and employ a representative, a teacher, transfer drivers and other helpers to make our projects possible.
The project also helps the local economy. Our participants spend money on food and leisure; we pay rent to a local landlord and we arrange day trips and meals out in local attractions. In addition, we donate money regularly to the various charitable projects that we work with in response to their needs.
Our pre-departure briefing includes a special session entitled ‘Responsible Tourism’ where we discuss cultural differences and sensitivities as well as advising volunteers on appropriate conduct. People a briefed on what is considered polite in terms of eating, greeting and dressing. It is encouraged that all volunteers learn some Romanian prior to departure, and they get a helping hand whilst out there as well.
