Responsible tourism

Georgia food and wine vacation with Carla Capalbo

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

We have a strict environmental policy to make sure that the environments we visit are not damaged in any way. Our “Leave No Trace” ethic is applied to each one of our trips, and as a responsible tour operator, it is something we are careful and steadfast about promoting. Each one of our local guides are trained to uphold, promote and put into practice such responsible behaviour, especially in wilderness areas or whilst traveling to UNESCO heritage sites, which many of our trips undoubtedly do. We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable bottles. We understand this is not always possible in countries where tap water is not safe to drink.

By keeping the group size on our trip through Georgia to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems we visit.

We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable and filtered water bottles. Our partnership with Water-To-Go provides a discount on filtered water bottles to our clients. We do not provide water from plastic bottles to our clients in country but always ensure there is regular access to drinking water on our tours.

We are promoting the ancient heritage and natural landscape of Georgia through visiting Mtskheta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sites are chosen by the UNESCO committee and must "bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to civilisation", "an important interchange of human values" or be outstanding examples of major stages of Earth's history or ecological and biological processes in evolution.

Community

On this culinary tour we will be delving into the food and wine culture of Georgia. The best way to share stories and meet new people is over a plate of great food and a glass of wine in hand. Georgia is known for its fantastic food and wine, with a unique wine production method dating back 8,000 years ago. ON this particular tour we will be visiting a wine distillery in Kakheti to uncover the clay jars used for wine production called “Qvevri”.

Carla Copeldo will be our guide and she will take us through the country, visiting her local friends who will help her cook amazing food for you to share. Supporting the local food and wine industry in Georgia not only maintains the cultural identity of Georgia and connects cultures through the most ancient of pastimes, eating!

On each Group tour we use local ground handlers. This means that all operational costs go directly into the local economy and help improve employment opportunities in remote regions. Such support can also be seen in our incorporation of homestays, locally owned hotels, family run restaurants and the services of local guides and drivers into our itineraries, which ensures that the money you spend with us goes directly into the local economy and local community.
