What to expect

Responsible tourism

We live sustainability

Our social responsibility

As proud ambassadors of the beautiful Gulf countries, we believe it is our responsibility to look after our environment, communities, customers, partners and employees. We have great respect for nature, wildlife, and the cultures of the Orient. Therefore we aim to inform our guests about the local customs and encourage them to be more environmentally and socially conscientious. We place great emphasis on supporting our society by creating jobs, working with and buying from local businesses.

Leave no trace

To preserve the natural beauty of the places we visit, we ensure that no new trails are created and nothing but footprints are left behind. When you go off the beaten track, our guides make sure to follow the course that is already there to minimize damage to natural materials and dispose of all rubbish properly.

Respect the hosts

We offer our guests a more satisfying experience through meaningful interactions with locals; and a better understanding of the local culture, while creating awareness of social and environmental issues. We believe it is important to build local trust by being culturally sensitive and fostering a respectful relationship between tourists and hosts. In this way we create better places to live and better places to visit.

Why us


One for all, all for one: we maintain long-standing relationships with employees, suppliers, and customers. Thanks to transparency and honest communication, we create a tolerant, collegial, and fair working environment. Team spirit is a key factor in our success.
