Description of Tunisia tour of UNESCO sites
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetWe reserve 5% of our clients' total package cost to invest in the local communities and environment through our partnering 501(c)(3) Second Look Worldwide. These investments are tangible projects which our clients can see during their trip. All projects are determined by the communities and are dependent on their most direct needs; however, we are focusing on projects that support water management solutions. In Tunisia, we will be working in the Tozeur region of the country to support water management practices.
We operate on a completely paperless basis when communicating with clients and our contacts on the ground, recycle all plastic bottles from the tours, and invest in the conservation of local forests.
For our tours to Tunisia, we reserve a portion of revenue to support the World Resources Institute. WRI's mission is to move human society to live in ways that protect Earth's environment and its capacity to provide for current and future generations' needs and aspirations.
We encourage travelers to reduce waste and consumption wherever possible. Limiting water usage by taking shorter showers and declining bedding changes can be very beneficial, specifically in the Tozeur region of Tunisia.
PeopleWe start by focusing our tours during the off season and shoulder-season in Tunisia, which creates economic stability in the country's tourism sector. By booking directly through our partners, we can utilize local guides, encourage clients to buy local souvenirs, and stay at locally owned & operated accommodations. Not only do our travelers have better experiences but as much money as possible stays within Tunisia.
To date, 90.31% of the total cost of all tours booked has gone directly back into the local economies.
Clients on this tour to Tunisia will be able to see the vibrancy of the Tunisian food and culture, both past and present, and see and interact with locals throughout the tour. By experiencing locally sourced foods from the areas around each location, not only do travelers receive better examples of the cuisine, but this cuts down on transportation emissions in bringing food to travelers.
We encourage travelers to purchase locally produced goods and utilize local services such as souvenirs, crafts, meals, guides, and establishments. These all can enhance the traveler experience and have a positive impact in Tunisia. Specific experiential experiences like the market tour in Tozeur and pottery making in Sejnane will allow travelers to buy souvenirs directly from the production source.
We require all travelers to respect the local customs and traditions of Tunisia. Being mindful of our actions abroad always results in a better experience while traveling.
