“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn
Wherever your passion for travel takes you, there is one common thread for us all – a curiosity to see the world and learn about other places, people and cultures. Over our years in the travel business, Eat the Peach Travel has seen firsthand how travel supports local and international economies and people. However, not all tourism dollars trickle down to those who need it the most.
Lesly is one of several kids we've sponsored over the years. We donate $500 - from our bottom line - from each of our Day of the Dead Tours. This money provides a full year of school care.
We ensure that 100% of your contribution goes to the charity or community project that is connected to the relevant tour. We also encourage our clients to bring their own ideas to our designers during the travel planning process. Incorporating philanthropy work into customized itineraries is one of our favorite things to do for our clients.
We always felt that there was a way to help those ‘on the ground’ that made our adventures what they were.
Tom and I are both civil servants. We’ve always wanted to take care of people. That’s our goal, what we do and want to show to others.
We can do it all still, but we must do it better. True sustainable tourism will take a while, but it is the new world order whether we like it or not. It comes full circle.
