Over recent years, we have all woken up to the need to conserve and protect the beautiful environments in which we live, but responsible tourism goes further than that and is about taking an active part in the preservation of eco-systems and ways of life which, as travellers, we come to visit.
“We are proud of the difference we help to achieve and will continue to promote sustainable and responsible tourism.”As part of our commitment to ‘Responsible Tourism’ not only does World Odyssey ensure that all its overseas partners are ‘environmentally friendly’, but we also support a few key projects and charities in several different countries involving both wildlife and disadvantaged peoples and, although it may be small compared to some of the multinationals, it helps to make a difference. We are proud of the difference we help to achieve and will continue to promote sustainable and responsible tourism to ensure that everything we cherish in these beautiful countries is still there for generations to come.
Travellers have the privilege of discovery, adventure, relaxation and insight, and we have a commitment to pioneering emerging destinations. You will be secure in the knowledge that we will plan your perfect destination, accommodation, style and mode of transport and experience where ever it may be!
