About Us

Our Ethos

‘Take only photographs, leave only footprints’ is our motto at Carpe Diem. We think that responsible tourism relies on cultural understanding. While travelling we simply enter a place that is someone else’s home and it’s all about treating others the way you would like to be treated yourself. For Carpe Diem that means being directly involved with the people in the places we visit. Both those we work with and the general population – especially those in need. Carpe Diem ensures that local people are well paid, feel valued and empowered and have opportunities for self-development and that all profits are directly reinvested in small scale projects that benefit local people.

I enjoyed the tour very much. Your service, care, attention and overall efficiency was excellent from start to finish
