Who will be providing my tour operating services?

For all tours booked through Fair Voyage, your local tour services in your destination will be provided by a duly licensed tour operator. Fair Voyage does not operate any tours directly but acts as neutral intermediary to help you find, customize, book and pay for your best trip provided by your best-matching local tour operator (read about our hybrid business model as platform and agency here).

Our primary mission is to promote ethical & sustainable tours operated by verified responsible companies, independent of whether such tours are operated by local companies or sold through international agencies (read more about operators versus agencies here).

At the same time, however, we also strive to help you find your single best responsible travel offer, which most often means the best value-for-money quotes according to your requirements. Naturally, offers provided directly by local companies will always be more affordable than offers through their international agents. Therefore, we’re almost always promoting local companies to you, even though we do not intend our platform to become exclusive only for local companies.

The only exception to this rule currently are open group tours sold by big international agencies exclusively to their own clients and not open for travellers to book through other agencies of the same local operator. For many travellers, the bonding experience and benefits of joining such group tours outweighs higher costs compared to offers provided directly by local companies.

While we have already compiled lots of group tours offered directly by local companies, we also want to give you the option of joining ethical group tours organized by well-known international brands. Therefore, we are working on opening up our platform to all responsible companies, including international agencies, so that in future, hopefully, you can find all ethical tour offers for our core destinations at Fair Voyage.
