My name is Martijn Steijn, general manager of Fairtravel4u. As a little boy born in the Netherlands I dreamed about building my own sailing boat to travel the world. I followed my dream and learned how to build boats and sail.
In 2003 I decided to pack a backpack and travel to South America. This journey still continues and for the last 15 years I have been traveling, volunteering and guiding tourists all over South America, mainly in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.
After working many years for different travel agencies I found out that not everything in tourism is the way it looks.
Many travel agencies try to sell their clients exactly what they look for, but avoid telling them about local circumstances like high altitude, long travel distances, etc.
They sell tours that look great, but aren’t realistic. Some agencies don’t even care if clients get sick or exhausted during their tour, because the tour got sold and the client’s health is his own responsibility…
Other travel agencies make all kind of promises to ‘improve the world’, but in practice these promises are often just sales techniques…
In 2011 I started Fairtravel4u. Our goal is to bring back more honesty in the tourist industry and treat both our clients and employees in a Fair way.
We from Fairtravel4u not only care about selling our tour, we also really want that our clients enjoy their tour before, during and after their stay in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Therefore we provide our clients with honest information, good preparation and trustful local support.
