*What certification?
There are a few well-recognised sustainability certification programs for tour operators, including Travelife, TourCert and Earth Check. They slightly differ in pricing, recognition, and membership benefits. However, the list of criteria remains pretty much the same regardless of the certification program, simply because they all follow the international sustainability standards for hospitality, as listed by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.

It is up to you which certification program to apply for. If you are not sure which one is right for you - we will answer all your questions to help you choose.
To make it clear - we are not a certification body but we help you get certified with a program of your choice.
