We travel sustainably: politely, respectfully, neatly and invite our guests to do the same.

Here are a few bullet points on how to do it easy:

    We PRESERVE (do not harm) OBJECTS:

  • We repair/fix something overturned or torn apart

  • If object is painted over or pasted/glued over – we clean it

  • If there are warning or protective signs - we walk the marked paths only

  • We take our time to NOTIFY elder ships, municipalities about untidy, damaged objects

  • We CLEAN, COLLECT GARBAGE (we carry bags for that) - we leave the place tidier than we have found

  • We ALWAYS ask for permission when entering private areas. If we can't find people, we leave a note, or an apple or some other little thing to say that we've been here

  • If the place is locked, we don't try to get in any way through the fence or crack: we better get acquainted with those objects through photos or other sources

  • We learn and see more on the INTERNET so we don’t have to climb, go with the crowd, crawl into all the objects, especially when there are a lot of people in them, as we know exactly what interests us

  • We are getting ready that VIRTUAL TOURISM might gradually change the live access to some objects

  • We treat other travelers POLITELY: we would wait, yield those who are in a hurry

  • We ALWAYS SHARE INFORMATION with those who need it

  • We buy from LOCAL businesses and craftsmen, we hire LOCAL guides, thus supporting the communities of smaller towns

  • We BUY not obligatory visitor tickets to National and Regional Parks to support protected areas

  • As a GUIDES, we share information, knowledge with colleagues and partners, cooperate with representatives of the sites we visit, local communities, guides, etc.

  • We donate part of our earnings to support social initiatives or charities to develop local tourism
