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 are following the guidance of the National Parks Conservation Association in America and are ensuring that our tours adhere to their guidelines. For example, before entering the park- we show our travelers the information about where to place their trash. Recently, there has been a concerted effort to ensure that the landfills are not filled. Yosemite has partnered with Subaru on a campaign called “Don’t feed the landfills” which has resulted in 16 millions pounds of waste being kept out of the landfills. On each of our trips, we emphasise the need to dispose of waste responsibly and encourage our travelers to take advantage of the new and, now numerous, water refill stations which helps to eliminate plastic waste. There are now hundreds of places where trash can be recycled and by indicating clearly where these are and having our guides explain the importance (and success thus far) we can play our part in ensuring our groups are responsible travelers within the parks.
We encourage all of our travelers to say no to single use plastics and to bring their own water bottles. A lot of our tours are connected via public transport- we take trains across much of the Pacific Coast. Within cities- we use the metro services and only use minibuses where necessary.
When we spend time on the beach- our adventure leaders stress the need to be responsible and not leave trash on the beach.
PeopleOur trips aims to connect to culture and foster a connection to the places we visit. All of our group tours include activities that enable our customers to meet, connect and communicate with the local people. We offer a new perspective and understanding of different cultures, religions and lifestyles.
Our trips are also packed with experiences that are designed to bring an understanding of America’s history and culture. This tour allows you to experience different life styles in urban cities and peaceful nature in the Gold State.
This trip also gives you opportunity to volunteer at a local soup kitchen in Los Angeles and explore some of the art scenes in San Francisco or try wine tasting in Napa valley.
During the tour, we encourage our travelers to visit small business for shopping or local restaurants for food. All these activities allow our travelers to see the cities and experience the communities from different perspectives.
