Sustainable Tourism

 

We travel to discover.

We travel to enjoy ourselves.

We travel to enlighten ourselves.

We travel to make a lifetime experience.

It is high time we start considering how our travels are impacting the community and what we can actually do about it. Over tourism is creating not only a stress feeling on the local community but also making your travels more of a superficial experience. Is your travelling to a country contributing to further overcrowding, littering, causing environmental damage, failing to respect local culture, inappropriately touching or taking things and driving up rents?

Do you want to travel just to get the random selfie with which to show all and sundry you’ve been there done that or do you want to make an enlightening, fun, lifetime experience which leaves the country you’ve visited a better place?

You can be part of sustainable tourism in various ways including by choosing accommodation which limits property price hikes for locals, eating at restaurants which are as local as possible, hence contributing to job creation and small business to thrive but also by being prepared to learn about the communities and their traditions so as to act responsibly and with due respect.

That is why one should take a tour of the place with a professional guide which is without any doubt a very important step for one to understand the community and make of your travels a positive contribution to society.

Then again, when choosing tours to do, try consider whether those tours will contribute positively to the community, hence where our Best Tours can be different to most other tour companies around.

Our food tour is one such example of a tour which helps you discover the country, its people and their customs whilst contributing to a number of small or family run businesses to thrive, employing more locals and also giving them the possibility to expand with new local and innovative products being put on the market. This also has a trickle effect on a broader part of the community as the products get sourced from local farmers and businesses which helps contribute to local economy including with the paying of a just price for the products.

In our 3 Cities tour we go one step further by including as part of our tour a visit to a monastery of Dominican friars where we are served a local version of coffee whilst learning about the work these friars do in the community especially with people in need.

With us contributing financially part of what our clients pay into communities, including a percentage of our sales going to the Dominicans to help them finance places for children of immigrants in our schools or with donations which go into the Dominican food bank for people in need, we not just believe in sustainable tourism but make sure it gets practiced in real life.

That is why our tours are the Best Tours in Malta for anyone wanting to leave a positive footprint on our community.
