We want our clients to have a positive experience on our tours, but just as important for us is for the locals to have a positive experience from our clients and for there to be a benefit to their community.
- We promise that by 2023 at least 1 element of tour on every cultural and Explore itinerary we run will benefit the local community. This may include a visit to a local business, a stay in a family run hotel or even lunch in a local farm/restaurant. We want to give back to those who make the areas we bring our clients to special.
