1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
Hiking in the Chaukhi mountains - spectacular scenery!
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Double check the itinerary beforehand
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
I think it supported the local guides/guesthouses but there was nothing directly related to helping the planet
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
Overall it was great but a few issues.
Brilliant driver/guide - very friendly, professional & knowledgeable, but he was often on the phone whilst driving & speeding. I’m sure that’s standard practice but we would’ve felt safer with better driving safety.
There was confusion over the itinerary - We were given 3 different versions. The
one we booked had 2 nights camping but that didn’t happen. The last day was totally different to what we booked. I wonder if this is because it was booked through onw local operator but really the operator in Georgia operated the tour. Urban park hotel in Tbilisi messed up a bit - double room instead of twin, said they’d change it the next day but didn’t.
But overall it was great! And good value
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.
During the tour, our travelers are camping and we always try to minimize their impact on the environment by staying on the beaten path and to avoid using washing up liquid, soap and other cleaning products which contain chemicals.
We strongly believe reusable bottles are very important for health and always encourage travelers to have them. Georgia is mountainous country and very reach in spring pure water. We in Georgia drink water from the tap and pour water from mountain springs. Mountains spring water is also drinkable and clean. To be on the safe side we advise travelers to bring filtered bottles to be sure the water doesn't harm their stomach. This helps to minimize littering and plastic use in the country. Each day of the tour we also provide our travelers with water only filled in glass bottles.
Passenger vehicles are a major pollution contributor, producing significant amounts of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and other pollution. In Georgia, we often use electric cars which have several benefits over conventional automobiles, including a significant reduction of local air pollution.
We use emails rather than fax and do not print documents but store them on our computers and in online clouds. All of our invoices, travel information and travel documents to our clients are issued as PDF - not printed on paper. Also we reduce waste and pollution by collaborating with plastic and paper waste reducing company in Armenia named "Ecoaghb".
PeopleWe always help clients to discover different areas of Georgia by recommending other travel routes, hotels and guests houses that are traditional. We encourage them to explore our local areas and sample the wonderful variety of shops, restaurants etc which are locally owned and which provide traditional Georgian products.
A fair deal
Working conditions are at the core of paid work and employment relationships. Generally speaking, working conditions cover a broad range of topics and issues, from working time to remuneration, as well as the physical conditions and mental demands that exist in the workplace. We work with a local operator who employs on our behalf local group leaders, drivers and local site guides creating vital local employment. We always offer local people good working conditions with a fare wage.
Traveling with respect
We always inform our travelers about local customs and traditions, communication issues and rules of conduct in the churches. Thus, we minimize the risk of misunderstanding with locals and disrespectful behavior in religious places.
We are always trying to analyze and develop our responsible business policy and behaviors, through client and tour feedback and in response to changing socio-political conditions and current affairs.
