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
Our local leaders actively encourage travelers to use the new recycling system which separates all waste into four strict categories, and can include dismantling and cleaning of certain containers. By explaining how it is sorted they also learn how to dispose of their own rubbish in a responsible manner.

The distance travelled on this trip is substantial, so we use a combination of an internal flight, 15-25 seat coaches and public trains which includes the famous bullet train. The coaches emit considerably less carbon that the gas-guzzling 40-50 seaters which, when combined with the public train, significantly reduces our carbon footprint. As we're using facilities which are already running, we aren't increasing the carbon emission levels for this part of the journey.

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.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

A way we support local artisans is through a visit to the factory in Xian which makes the miniature replicas of the Terrcotta Warriors. Here you will witness and learn how they're made, and you can purchase one which will help them maintain this tradition, and support their families.

Having meals in locally-owned and run restaurants not only provides you with a chance to enjoy true traditional cuisine and hospitality, but it also means your money supports the local community and ensures they have a continued livelihood. This is especially important in the more rural areas we visit. Customers often cite the food as a highlight of their trip.

As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
