Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Throughout the trip you will also be encouraged to take steps to ensure that your journey is as environmentally responsible as possible.

Responsible travel is one of the pillars our company is built upon. All of our travelers are provided with information regarding responsible travel at all stages of the booking process and while traveling with us. Our tour leaders are also trained extensively in responsible travel and will advocate for this throughout our trips. On our vehicles we supply drinking water so travelers can re-fill their water bottles.

Each traveler on this trip is given a gift of a Responsible Traveler cloth bag made by disadvantaged children from Central Vietnam. This bag is designed to combat the increasingly prevalent problem of plastic bag pollution disrupting the various marine and land habitats of Vietnam.

On this trip we try to use local transportation where we can, such as overnight sleeper train. By using public transport, we reduce the amount of carbon emissions we produce.

The Impacts of this Trip

The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travelers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

Your group leader and the local guides we use along the way will help to break down barriers in your interactions with local people. In addition, we travel by some local transport to facilitate and encourage interaction with the local population. In the Mekong Delta, we visit a local garden restaurant, in the heart of the Delta, where you can sample some of the regional specialities such as the famous elephant ear fish. We board small rowing boats, sampans, and paddle through the many mangrove tributaries to visit small villages and meet with the friendly locals.

Your leader will explain the range of projects we support in Vietnam, and in Hanoi, we visit one of these projects - KOTO, a restaurant dedicated to training street kids and disadvantaged youth in skills for the hospitality industry.

At the end of our journey, travelers may donate any unwanted clothing, medicine and bandages, which are distributed to appropriate local charities.
