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
We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit both the places and communities we visit as well as our travelers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a 'Travelers' Code of Conduct' to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. The code includes tips on everything from handling wildlife encounters to how you can help to conserve precious natural resources. Our tour leaders will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic, this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimise the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Some key guidelines we follow include keeping to existing trails, staying in official campgrounds and disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whatever we can.

We are proud supporters of the American Hiking Society, which champions conservation issues in the United States and represents millions of hikers committed to preserving America’s vast network of hiking trails and their surrounding ecosystems.

All water is safe to drink from the tap on this trip and we advise customers to bring a reusable water bottle from home, and not buy single use plastic bottles.

The Impacts of this Trip

In 1938 Route 66 became the first paved highway linking the USA from east to west. It was a powerful and iconic symbol of the great American road trip. Creation of the Interstate and bypass signalled the decline of businesses and towns along the Route 66. This tour invests a significant amount of time and money utilising services and businesses to keep this historic stretch of road from crumbling into the past.

Throughout this tour, we are visiting businesses including restaurants well off the beaten path and staying in accommodation in lesser touristic areas. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit.
