“Looking at these photographs, I know that I will never understand the world I live in or fully know the places I’ve been. I’ve learned for sure only what I don’t know—and how much I have to learn.”

Doing the Right Thing
Mindful/Slow tourism is at the base of what we do. We believe in people and their ability to change things. We think that by connecting with each other and our environment, we can improve. Involvement, solidarity, tolerance, awareness, and communication are the bases of our personal and professional lives. We also have a strong commitment to social & environmental sustainability:
We use and promote public transport throughout our tours to minimize our carbon footprint
We only work with small groups to minimize social disruptions (max. 10 people)
Income gets distributed across the regions we visit as we cover a wider area and not only tourist hotspots
We are a “zero paper” company, avoid single-use plastics and are water conscious
