Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

We try to reduce our impact on the environment by switching to public transport, for example we use the railway through the Vouraikos Gorge to Kalavryta and use the metro system to travel from our hotel to Syntagma Square on our Athens city tour. Where it is not possible to use public transport we charter a vehicle. We recently switched our transport provider to use a more modern fuel efficient smaller buses.

We spend a time at a number of designated historic sites on this tour, and the included entrance fees help to preserve the status and upkeep these famous landmarks for future generations.

Moving onto the Greek islands, we use a number of public ferries rather than flying from island to island, which is a low impact choice, as well as fun and a great way to meet local people and take in the sea views.

Water management is a key issue on the Greek island, our Tour Leaders brief customers on the ‘do’s and don’ts’ on conserving water, this is especially important in the Greek Islands given the shortage of water in the summer months.

During our free time on each of the islands we give you the chance to explore on foot and by traveling around the islands on public buses, so to again keep our environmental impact to a minimum. On these walk we’ll often visit local shops to purchase supplies for a picnic lunch, so that a variety of different businesses economically benefit from our visit. On our walk from Thira to Oia there will be the chance to stop at a local cafe to enjoy homemade ice cream mid way through our walk.

The tap water is safe to drink and we encourage travelers to take a reusable water bottle to fill up throughout the day, rather than adding to the number of plastic bottles used and to be carried.

As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

People

This trip to two of Greece’s most iconic islands gives us a fascinating insight into Greek culture. We’ve been operating in Greece for many years now and have built up strong relationships with the small and often family run hotels we stay at, the taxi firms we use for transport and the various small tavernas where we enjoy delicious, authentic Greek food. They’re all local and locally owned, meaning that the money you spend stays within the community.

Making sure that our trips benefit the communities that we visit is a key part of our responsible tourism policy, and you can be confident that we are doing just that on this trip. We think it also gives you a better and more genuine experience too.

We use a local Greek Tour Leader on this trip who know the country very well and who will help to give us a unique insight into the history, customs and culture of the islands and get us that bit closer to the local people. Our Tour Leaders are trained by us in the importance of responsible tourism with guidance given on how they can make a difference.
