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

Our local leaders actively encourage travelers to refill their reusable water bottles from the tumbler provided throughout the trip. In addition, they explain how the mandatory recycling system works in Korea to demonstrate how to dispose of rubbish consciously.

Reducing our carbon emissions through using smaller 15-25 seat minibuses is just one aspect. For the longest part of this journey we use a public high-speed train to travel back to Seoul, and for the city tour on day 2, this is done on foot. 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.

People

Visiting small, independent and locally-owned restaurants is an integral part of our itinerary, this means money goes directly into the local economy and community. In addition, this provides an authentic Korean meal experiences and even the opportunity to try making certain dishes yourself. Many of our guests comment that the food was one of the highlights of their trip.

One of the reasons we prefer to use local tour leaders is so they can give a real insight into the culture and history of their home country by sharing their own stories and experiences. In addition we are financially supporting them and other members of staff such as drivers and hotel owners, through employment.

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.
