We hope that COVID-19 will be a stepping stone when -hopefully- tourism restarts to change the way people travel. This includes travelers, the authorities, and tourist businesses. Eudaimonia Athens Private Tours has been taking our guests around the country we love, and respect and sustainable tourism play a big role in what we do. We are committed to a code of best practice in all aspects of our business, especially our relationship with the environment, the sites, and the communities that we visit. We also encourage our suppliers and clients to adopt similar practices.
Sustainable tourism is the way we become a better tourism professional, and you a better traveler too. “Better” can be translated as:
☼ Positive ecological footprint
☼ Still a decent profit for the business
☼ Value for money for the traveler
Sustainable tourism is the way to “use” tourism in a positive, constructive way for our land, for the environment, our business, our local economy, and our clients. Both the businesses (us) and the travelers (you) should care more for the local community we visit. Respect it in all … respects!
We have been trying to include in all our tours sustainable destinations, accommodation, exploring in a very comfortable way, enjoying quality food, creating memorable “experiences” while visiting all the monuments and amazing sites of Greece. All this without feeling part of a typical herd of tourists.
Tourism Unions, destination authorities, governments DON’T CARE, so it is us, the tourism professionals, that have to promote sustainable tourism and at the same time help our business to STAND OUT!
We believe that pursuing sustainable tourist is synonymous with the quality of service that the traveler will enjoy! An example of this? We visit beautiful local communities that are not yet exposed (unspoiled) by mass tourism! We help these local economies, and in return, we get the best value for money possible: great quality, authenticity, politeness, experience, and more. We know these local community people by their first name, and they are authentically happy to see us and provide the best service possible for you!
☼ We avoid rush-hour visiting times of the famous sites.
☼ We stay in high-quality accommodation but still avoid the “faceless businesses.”
☼ We eat where the locals eat!
☼ We know the local communities we visit during our tours and always get the “special” treatment.
☼ We take the extra step and plan tours with authenticity, including real Greek locations and experiences without missing out on the well-known sites!
☼ Our tours have to be fun for us too, so you are in for a treat! We can’t allow ourselves to be bored.
Enjoy real Greece with respect!
