A fairer way to travel

Our holidays revolve around local people and benefit the local economy - we try to weave this philosophy into all factors of your holiday.

  • More money directly into the local economy - skipping out middlemen
  • Local communities benefit more from tourism
  • Increased autonomy to communities to control how tourism affects them
