Company Summary

We provide responsible tourism products - tours that actively encourage local economic development while "doing no harm" to the local culture, society, or the environment. Tourism should be a powerful tool for development, but too often it is synonymous with exploitation, waste and abuse, causing problems for the local community as well as the tourists. We target tourists of all ages, but 80% our customers are females in their 20s or 30s.
