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
Since 2006 we have been awarded Silver accreditation under the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) as a tour operator promoting sustainable tourism in the South east of England. We are a family run operator based in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The walk passes an RSPB center from where rare wildfowl and migratory birds can be viewed, the stunning shingle and wildflower landscape of Dungeness, and chalk downland where rare species of butterflies and orchids can be seen.

We use locally based taxi companies to transport luggage and reduce mileage. Transport by train or coach is available to start and finish points.

We are committed to operating a Responsible Travel Policy (RTP) that is supportive and in sympathy with the local communities and environment. This is in line with the stated aims on all our vacations which invites its customers to ‘discover hidden Kent, its history and its people’. We promote use of local services and the return of all packaging to us for re-use/recycling.

We provide information about equipment including ensuring that reusable water containers are used on the walk. Our office premise uses solar power, and we have a sustainable energy supplier. Information packs are printed on recycled paper, and printer ink cartridges are recycled.

We promotes purchase of locally sourced food for packed lunches either from the accommodation provider or from farm shops, rural inns and tea shops en route. Breakfast is taken at the accommodation, and evening meals on site or in walking proximity.
