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

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

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.

Our tour leaders provide travelers with a quick local language lesson when they join this trip. This helps travelers become more confident with commonly used words and phrases. Travelers can then be polite and friendly in their interactions with locals, using greetings, please and thank you to show their respect. In Egypt it is customary for sellers to approach tourists, offering small souvenirs, drinks or snacks for sale. Our Egyptian leaders explain this practice and the best way travelers can politely decline their offers. They also provide guidance on how best to engage with sellers in the souks, in a way that is respectful of Egypt’s bargaining culture but won’t lead to either party being taken advantage of.
