Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Danube Delta vacations, Romania

To protect the environment, especially since we’re dealing with a world class conservation area, one of Europe’s last great wilderness destinations, home to a large variety of birds, fish and plants we operate with small groups to minimise the negative impact on the environment, always make sure that our tourists have a recyclable garbage bag and that the waste will be disposed only in the special arranged areas. Our Danube Delta guides, true nature enthusiasts, have intricate knowledge of the routes involved and provide our guests with the best suggestions: keep to tracks, not disturb the wildlife, use bio-degradable hygiene products and of course, enjoy themselves.

Besides the economic aspect – we’re using only local suppliers; your visit is of great importance for the small rural communities as you’ll be able to purchase locally goods starting with food and ending with souvenirs & handicrafts. You’ll enjoy a monastic lunch served by nuns in Saon Monastery and sample some wine in Badila cellars, the vineyards are said to have been planted by Roman soldiers in the 15th century, you’ll also visit the beautiful Lipovan villages–the most isolated and idyllic is Periprava and the famous Letea forest, the first natural reserve declared in Romania. The Romanian guide will also advise you on local customs as well as help you to break down language barriers.

The entry fees will help maintain and even restore the precious tourist attractions visited through out the tour: Saon Monastery, Cocos Monastery, Badila Cellars.

Apart from these, we’re making financial contributions for every persons who books one of our tours or programmes in the amount of £1 per person to support Saint Daniel’s Foundation programme entitled "A grand father for a nephew – A nephew for a grandfather", helping elderly and orphans, people most in need.

We encourage our guests do a little reading before coming to find out more about their host communities and the environment so that they would connect better with the locals. We provide suggestion on how best to support the local economies and communities, as well as the surrounding environment. Guests will receive a pre-trip information pack via e-mail, to minimise the use of paper, which will inform them about issues relating to the place they will travel, some language tips and general advice. Furthermore, our tour guides are well-educated multilingual people who can offer guests their skills as an interpreter and offer up-to-date details on current national and regional issues.
