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 recommend low carbon transport and make the journey as stimulating and sustainable as the stay.
Where possible we choose to travel by land rather than air. By minimizing the use of flights on our trips, we are making journeys more stimulating and more sustainable for travelers. This trip through Egypt primarily travels by boat and private vehicle. We ensure our vehicles are well maintained and fuel-efficient. We use vehicles that are an appropriate size to suit the group size. For example, we wouldn’t use a 16-seater van if we only had five people traveling with us. We plan our routes of travel so that we spend as little time as possible traveling and turn the engine off when travelers are visiting a site and not in the vehicle.

Our trips often include the highlights of a country or region, but we understand that over tourism has a great impact on these popular locations and their local communities. To minimise our effect on the world’s most admired sites we design our itineraries to visit at quieter times of the day and ensure part of the entry costs are allocated to conservation and preservation of the site. This trip includes guided visits of many Ancient Egyptian sites and entry to the Grand Egyptian Museum. A portion of the admission prices for these inclusions goes towards preserving these sites and exhibits for future generations, further research into the region’s history, and continuing explorations of archaeological sites in Egypt.

People

Our trips maximize the opportunity for travelers to engage meaningfully with local culture and communities. Many experiences on our trips also support traditional cultural practices – whether artisanal, culinary or otherwise. In turn, this helps to sustain and preserve these traditional practices so that future generations may continue to learn, enjoy and benefit from them. This trip includes two meals with local families in Aswan and Cairo, providing opportunities for sharing recipes and stories, while directly supporting two local families. The restaurant we use for the welcome dinner and the café visited at the end of the trip are both locally owned venues that are popular with the people of Cairo. While they welcome tourists, these venues pride themselves on serving traditional

All aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by Egyptians. This includes our leaders, vehicle drivers, local site guides, and accommodation staff. Our local Egyptian office employs 11 full time employees and 29 trip leaders. Of these trip leaders eight are women. In addition to local training and development opportunities, four members of our Egyptian office team have joined global management and business training courses in Melbourne, London and Colombo.
