WHO JOINS OUR TRIPS
Our tours and other adventure trips are comprised of small and friendly groups made up of a variety of interesting and adventurous individuals from all walks of life. A typical group has about 2 to 18 people, mostly between the ages of 18 and 70, with approximately equal numbers of men and women.
Most people who join our trips are easy-going, open-minded individuals, with a positive attitude, enjoying new experiences, having a spirit of networking and the occasional challenge to their expectations. They don’t want everything to be exactly as it is at home, otherwise, they wouldn’t travel! No matter what your travel experience or fitness level is, we are bound to have a trip that suits you if you have the desire to go.
Our trips are designed to be genuine explorations for travelers (not just “tourists”!) who are interested in understanding something about the country they are visiting, and not just “seeing it” through a bus window. Our philosophy is “organized but flexible” in that we provide the advantages of lower-cost group travel, yet encourage and assist people to do any side trips or exploring they wish to do on their own.
We are an authentic “Eco-Tourism” company. All of our trips are operated with the utmost in environmental responsibility and cultural sensitivity. Garbage is burned, buried or carried out and all cooking is done on kerosene stoves in areas where there is a deforestation problem, as in many of our destinations.
Our style of traveling is an active, participatory type of experience involving Culture, Trekking, Hiking, Safaris or some other kind of physical activity on many of the days. You do not have to be a marathon runner or a mountaineer to participate, except for high trekking and expeditions – you simply have to be the kind of person who enjoys walking, the outdoors and the opportunity of cross-cultural contact in exotic lands. You never have to carry heavy loads on your back, as we have a full staff of porters, cooks, and guides to take care of the more mundane tasks associated with camping and help you make the most of your trip. We also provide almost all the major equipment you need (when camping), such as tents, mattresses, dishes, and cutlery. All you have to do is bring your personal gear.
We have designed our trips to include a variety of activities and excursions, with enough time in most places. Our trips are special in the way that we always do something “off the beaten track”, such as taking a less-trekked route, visiting a villager’s home or participating in a local festival. We encourage cross-cultural contact so that participants can better understand the area being visited and its people.
