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

This itinerary focuses predominantly on traveling through the cities of eastern USA by train. Traveling this way massively reduces your carbon footprint, compared with flying or driving. Wherever possible, we also use hand-picked eco-friendly accommodation that have their own environmentally-friendly policies and encourage their guests to behave in an environmentally-friendly manner to limit energy usage.

Visiting local places we encourage our travelers to report anything which doesn’t seem right during their trip so that we can act upon it.
Before departing on this trip, our customers will always receive an informative document called 'Be a responsible traveler', which provides useful advice on how they are able to travel in an environmentally-friendly way such as using reusable water bottles and limiting the amount of energy that they use.

We are very passionate about recycling, beginning in our Brighton office where we use a local company to ensure we all know where our waste is going, we encourage a no wastage policy, by asking staff to take leftover food home. We also have a largely ‘paperless’ office, refraining from publishing brochures and other marketing collateral, and instead of producing electronic documentation to ensure we use as little paper as possible.

People

We share very similar values to our local partners, ensuring our clients are taken to the ‘real’ USA in an authentic and meaningful way. Our partners have 40 years of experience in the travel industry of the USA and demonstrate a focus on showcasing the tremendous diversity across this vast country, beginning in their 3 offices where one of their primary values is to value the diversity of ideas, experiences and backgrounds of their employees.

Wherever possible, we work with independently owned accommodation so that more of our travelers’ money stays in the local communities they are visiting. In Boston, we work with a hotel which is part of a program that encompasses a triple-bottom-line approach to sustainability. Comprehensively, the program delivers environmental and conservation initiatives that positively impact their hotel's bottom lines, while simultaneously improving the well-being of their guests, employees, communities, and our planet.

In our documentation that we send out prior to their departure, we inform all of our travelers on the appropriate customs and etiquette when traveling in the USA, including the cultural sensitivities around the native Indian population. This is particularly relevant to this itinerary, in which you will take a tour to explore the history of the United States.
