THV Tours was founded with a simple goal: Explorer the world, Invest in people. Comprised of local guides, community members, and volunteers, our team share a love and extensive knowledge of the natural and cultural around us. When you travel with THV, you invest in the people and places that make the world worth exploring. We commit to spend 5% of our annual profit invested in local communities and charities for children in which we operate.
Throughout all of our destinations we encourage our clients to engage in community-based travel. This gives our clients the opportunity to spend time with local communities, learning about their lives and the traditional and changing practices of the countries they're visiting. This also gives them the chance to support the more remote and poorer communities, as well as the economies of the country they are visiting as a whole.
All of the staff working on the ground to coordinate and facilitate our trips are offered extensive training and an annual capacity building programme. This allows them to develop skills needed for their jobs, and improve their personal development. They are all paid above the local standards, providing them with greater opportunities, and ensuring that they stay with us and keep offering our customers the best possible experience.
These values are more than just words; they’re ingrained in the culture and daily operations of THV office and trip.
- THV is committed not just to treading lightly, but to making a real difference – by investing in local communities, human rights initiatives, wildlife conservation projects and the environment. We’re all about operating in a responsible manner and incorporating principles of sustainable tourism and development into the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences.
- We are looking to increase the amount of local restaurants we recommend to customers, so they can have interesting, unique and good-quality experiences, while benefitting local businesses and the local economy.
- Throughout all of our destinations we encourage our clients to engage in community-based travel.
- In our office we always recycle papers and we try to print as less as we can.
