Responsible Travel

This section covers the overall aims of our policy and the ethos/mission statement of the company.

Economic Responsibility:
1. Sightseeing tours are operated and led by local guides. Also, we use local drivers and local staff makes all tour arrangements.
2. We encourage clients to buy handmade artifacts from the local producers like perfume, papyrus, carpets and pharaonic gold or silver souvenirs.
3. Tours include a visit to the local markets like Khan El Khalili Bazaar in Cairo and the Souks in Luxor and Aswan.
4. We are interested in training our local staff by giving them leadership courses, emotional intelligence courses, and language courses in addition to tourism courses.
5. We use locally owned hotels and restaurants.

Environmental Responsibility:
1. All places visited are to be left as we found them. No piece of paper is to be left behind. For instance, our local staff in Bahariya and the White Desert cooperates with the government annually to clean the areas used as a camp for tourists.
2. All of our modern air-conditioned cars are provided with baskets for rubbish in addition to environmentally friendly exhausts systems.
3. Local guides and tour operators are not allowed to smoke during work.
4. Department managers meet weekly to ensure that all operations have minimal impact on the environment. We emphasize reducing in noise pollution by ordering tour drivers to refrain for using their car horns and we encourage our staff to go out of their way to pick up trash at tourist sights.
5. Our diving guides and tour guides emphasize preservation of Egypt’s coral reef, emphasising the damage that touching or removing coral does to the ecosystem of the Red Sea.
6. We support eco-tourism and do our best to deal with ecologically friendly hotels and resorts in Dahab, Marsa Alam, and Bahariya Oasis.
7. We are always open to suggestion from clients about how to improve our services in terms of environmental impact.
