Responsible Tourism

Responsible Tourism is about minimising negative impacts and maximising positive ones. It is about increasing the well being of local people through tourism and enabling our visitors to have a better relationship with the local people, who provide them with such wonderful memories.

Responsible travel helps local people in the Italian regions to earn a fair income from our tours and ensures that any negative environmental or cultural impacts are reduced. Flavours has had a love affair with Italy and its people for over 15 years now, and we are proud of our efforts regarding responsible tourism. Do you want to find out more? Contact us here >

Authenticity through local expertise

It is hugely satisfying to all of us at Flavours to see how every trip we organise benefits local people and our guests have always been fully supportive of this, as they too recognise how a little effort can go a long way. It has been our pleasure to observe the results of our conscious effort to create a way for our tours to be as much about our hosts in Italy, as our guests in the departure lounge!

Inspiring relationships with Italian communities

Above all, Responsible Tourism is about the simple, yet important awareness that every destination is someone else’s home and that we should always leave places as we would like to find them. This simple thought put into action has led to local communities in Italy benefiting from Flavour’s tours. Over the years, we have developed a close working relationship with our Italian counterparts and our success has become their success, too. Do you want to find out more about us? Click here >
