We do our best to sell authentic tours and sell them with realistic information.
The name Fairtravel4u originated from the wish to bring back more honesty in the tourist industry and treat both our clients and employees in a Fair way. Unfortunately many travel agencies make all kind of promises to 'improve the world', but in practice these promises are often just sales techniques...
They promise and try to sell their clients exactly what they want buy. This might sound great, but isn’t that great if it these promises aren’t realistic. Travelers might start their tour with high expectations and finish with a disappointment.
Like selling a tour in July to the beaches of Peru and Ecuador with great pictures of sandy beaches and sunsets, but not telling their clients that July is winter in most of South America, it is colder and there is a 90% change of having cloudy weather…
Or selling the 2-days Inca Trail, while clients actually only hike one day and over only 6 km over the Inca Trail…
We from Fairtravel4u not only care about selling our tour, we also really want that our clients have the best time possible during their stay in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Therefore we do inform our clients as honest as possible about both the positive and negative aspects of their tour options. Although the itineraries of our tours might not look as nice as some of our colleagues offer, all of them are really possible and the pictures are really taken from those places, without even using Photoshop.

In general tourism is now becoming more and more commercial and unrealistic.
On top of everything, tourism is turning volunteer work into a Commercial Business in which companies make money from selling volunteer work to inexperienced volunteers who then go on to have a negative volunteering experience.
Fairtravel4u dares to take a step back, into real life.
The goal of Fairtravel4u is to set an example for fair treatment in both tourism and volunteer work, starting with countries like Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.
We offer a more realistic and, if requested adventures, way of organized travelling for flexible travelers who don’t have enough time to arrange everything themselves. Our clients are in general young of mind and are looking for more freedom and less luxury during their tours.
We have learned from over 10 years’ experience in tour guiding that the biggest joy during a tour often comes from the unexpected so we would like to leave some room for this to happen. For example upon arriving at a booked location e.g. a city, we offer the client the choice of a fully-guided tour or a more independent exploration of the site.
We offer service with a personal touch and all the necessary facilities for our clients to book one of several tour options advertised on our website, or a completely customized tour.
Whenever possible we encourage the use of public transport and staying in well-located hotels/hostels with charm instead of sleeping in 5 star hotel chains.
Travelling is much more than just taking great pictures, it is about enriching life with new experiences. To that end, it’s clear that knowing just a few words of Spanish will improve the depth of your travel experience in South America, therefore we also offer our clients Spanish classes through Skype with a very experienced teacher.
We work together with an expanding network of non-commercial local volunteer projects.
Years of experience have taught us that there are unfortunately many local and even international organizations who take advantage of the goodwill of volunteers. With Fairtravel4u we want to help with bringing trusted volunteer projects and serious volunteers together. We do not charge any money for this. We just hope that after the volunteer work, some of the volunteers will book a tour with us. Or maybe they come back years later with their family to visit the project that they once helped and then they can ask us to arrange a tour for their family.
Fairtravel4u is not just about selling tours, but also about providing a good service. So for us it is very important that our clients and the volunteers we help have a great experience which will be remembered fondly long after they arrive home.
