Responsible Travel

Responsible tourism is one of the driving principles of Explore. We care deeply about travelling in a way that positively impacts the people and places we visit.

To us responsible travel means that we ensure people who work for Explore are treated fairly and paid a fair wage and we learn about and respect the customs and culture of the country we are visiting so that we do not offend local people.

We also ensure that local people benefit economically by employing them as leaders, guides and drivers - and by eating in local restaurants and using locally owned hotels and responsible accommodation where possible. We minimise our impact on the environment by travelling in small groups, reducing waste and supporting conservation projects.

Our charities and partners

Each year we review the charities and projects that we support overseas, and find new ways of working alongside our agents and tour leaders to help empower the local communities we visit.
