To the individual travelers we supply a Manual, in which we
give extra information on the travel itinerary & culture (for
Cuba & Peru so far).
We indicate in this Manual among others how to respect and
deal well with the social and cultural aspects of the country
of destination, and how to take care of the environment.
The Manuals contain the most important issues for a successful
& relaxed journey, and are continuously updated with our own
travel experiences and that of other travelers.
Part of our service is to answer the questions a traveler
has before, during or after the holiday concerning any aspect
of the country or travel, as far as we can and to have a briefing by Skype before departure.
Individual travelers always receive a general briefing and
their vouchers on arrival in the country of destination by
our host and/or local agent.

What makes our Individual Travels
Besides that we offer as much as possible
Responsible Travels, with nature excursions, one or more day
trekkings within a travel, horseback trekkings of several
days, or design complete nature travels, of which local nature
organizations and local guides do profit directly, we reserve
a part of our profit for supporting local families or local
projects with social, ambiental or healthcare aspects. This
depends on destination and income related to destination (see
also for every destination).
When travelers are interested we can assist with selecting community or environmental projects along the itinery. Clients can also come forward with one or more social projects they would like to visit and see how these can be integrated in their travel plan. For each travel we have a section 'How this holiday makes a difference'. For two examples see: the Colombia section and the Andes holiday, traveling with private driver-guide through the Andes to Atacama.
All local operators are small and local owners, meaning that the income remains within the country and creates a real economic contribution to its people and country. See also: Fair Travel with Tourleader (TC). Accommodations are chosen by the client according to budget, taste and style, when they are locally owned this will have our preference, when this is not the case we will inform the client with further details so that a well balanced decision can be made.
In Cuba we support several families with children by giving
clothes, medication, books, second hand luxuries, buying their
handicrafts, and making donations for construction materials
for housing. We’ve funded 2 families in East Cuba for
housing to become established with a small house or start
with constructing. We also offer and encourage travelers to
stay in homestays (casas particulares) so that families can
directly make an income which then gets ploughed back into
Cuban society. When you visit farmers during your treks we
ask participants, if possible, to donate luxury goods like
ballpoint pens, soap and shampoo, and buy some coffee or leave
We have supported the initiative of a waterbirth centre in
Lima and the education of Peruvian midwives in this subject.
We offer authentic horseback trekkings in Argentina by which the local families have a good income and a
way to sustain a traditional way of life in the mountains, etc etc..
Further we make exclusively use of the internet and email
to distribute information and communicate with clients to
save trees & minimise wastage associated with glossy brochures
and postal communications. In office we re-use paper for printing
and keep all used paper material apart to hand out to old
