Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Environment
Our company takes an environmentally responsible attitude towards recycling and reusing of waste products.

Responsible tourism is in action on this trip. This program employs locals host families and ensures them a fair wage. All representatives and guides have excellent indigenous knowledge and treat the area with respect. They will teach the volunteers about their local traditions, food and culture.

We insist that all participants bring their own water bottles when they travel with us. We have even created a water bottle that can be purchased before departure and encourage people to use it at all stages of their journey including at the airport, on flights and whilst on their project. We are striving for all of our projects to be free of single use plastic.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Meeting local needs
The whole project is geared towards helping the local community. Teaching English to children will significantly improve their job prospects. In addition, past volunteers have helped build classrooms and educate local street children. The project also helps the local economy. Participants stay with host families, boosting their income, as well as spending money locally. We have been running this project for 10 years and have long-standing relationships with local people. This means we can ensure volunteers make a real contribution.
Our programs are designed to immerse you in a different culture, living and working with local people. There’s plenty to gain personally from this challenge – a sense of achievement, broader horizons and some wonderful memories. But we make sure that local people benefit too.

Cultural sensitivity
Our pre-departure advice on My Oyster includes a dedicated entitled ‘Responsible Tourism’ where we discuss cultural differences and sensitivities as well as advising volunteers on appropriate conduct. There is also a full induction course on arrival, including a cultural orientation, so that participants can become part of the community.
