We believe travel is important, but we also recognize that travel (air travel in particular) has a negative environmental impact. We already do our best to lessen the carbon footprint of our group tours by using trains, taking public city transportation, and walking whenever possible. But we want to do better.
Starting with our Cakes and Coffeehouses group tour of Budapest and Vienna in June, from now on, we will be using Gold Standard to purchase carbon offset credits for all transportation involved with our group tours--including the transatlantic flights of all group members.
Carbon offset credits aren't a perfect system, but they're a start. If you'd like to read more about them, you can learn more here. If you're interested in purchasing carbon offset credits for your individual travel, that's something we can happily add on to any package.
And, of course, if you'd like to read more about our upcoming group tour offerings, check them out here:
