The goal of our company is to assist in the creation of a sustainable society and tourism, reducing the negative impact of our operations on the environments we operate in, and the people living in them. We achieve this by introducing new elements to our operations that measure and control the ecological, social, cultural and economic influence of our products on society and the region in which we operate. Together with our partners and suppliers we introduce an awareness in our guests of the importance of sustainable tourism.
Special attention is given to including immersive local experiences that not only promote cultural and natural values within the destination we cover but also help grow small, quality local suppliers who are essential to the smaller community development. A dedicated commitment to responsible travel is vital to our ethics.
Our comprehensive sustainability rating system for Tours and Experiences empowers travelers to maximize the positive benefits of their travels by taking part in activities that have been considered to be exceptionally beneficial to local people and environments.
In 2004, SAAD Tours started its first involvement in the Responsible Tourism by developing The MAWASSEM Trips series, promising a unique experience which combines a culinary and shopping expedition with a heritage tour, all in a beautiful, natural and rural setting. The trips aimed to provide the Lebanese public and destination seekers with trips combining Cultural, educational and nature experiences, while promoting economic development in the Rural Lebanon.
