Why choose this holiday?
This trip is different and unique because it is not specialized only in history or in sea&sun holidays. It is created in such a way so that the traveller will visit all the notable places of Peloponnese and will experience all the similar but different way of living of each area. It is ideal for those who want to combine everything on their holidays; swimming and relaxing on the beach, mountain and of course history and tradition.
According to your needs and mainly to the number of participants, we arrange for you to have a car that will be suitable for you(couples, families etc). If you are a bigger group, you can have a minibus or two cars. You will pick up the car at the Athens Airport, make the tour and deliver it back there in the end. As the time of your daily transportation is up to you, you have the possibility to organize your program in the way that you prefer as long as you appear in the hotel the scheduled day. You can drive morning or night, directly or with stops; it’s completely your decision!
Responsible travel holiday
Responsible travel is a new way of travelling for all those who prefer authenticity of experiences, life and culture instead of mass tourism. It’s about respecting and benefiting local people and the environment – but it’s about far more than that. Responsible travel is about bringing you closer to local cultures and environments by involving local people in tourism. It’s about doing this in a fair way that helps ensure that they will give you an even warmer welcome. For example, a local guide from the destination will open your eyes to their cultures and ways of life far better than an expat guide could ever do.
The responsible travelers want to get a little bit more out of their travels, and to give a little bit back to the special places and people that they encounter. They want deeper and more real travel experiences. The responsible traveler values authenticity – experiences integral to local people’s traditions, cultures and rituals – rather than those created for tourism, or those whose existing meanings and uses have become lost as they have been packaged up for tourism.
Choosing our holidays, you choose responsible holidays. One of our biggest concerns is to secure that tourism will not affect negatively our area in ecological and also socio-cultural way, and also that the locals will mostly benefit from your travel. Our company which is the organizer and operator of this package is local-based and all our employees are locals too. In this trip, you will be given material about how to apply maximum responsibility during your holidays. We also, as a company, offer 1% of the total price of this package per person for the environment, for offsetting the carbon emissions caused by this trip. This money are going to be used, in cooperation with the local Forestry Office, the Greek Climbing Club of Tripoli and the Tripoli Ecologist Club, for reforestation in our mountains, that have been hit by great fires in the summer of 2007.
