Responsible and sustainable tourism - Sahatours

Responsible Tourism

The tourist activity in Morocco currently represents the largest source of income and the industry that more jobs generates; for this reason, we work from SahaTours savvy in the need to promote the responsibility of the transformation toward a model of responsible and sustainable tourism. The ratio of quality-price is fair to all, specially, helping those most in need, in the sector, avoiding generate profits for the big or multinational corporations.

We believe firmly in the criteria of a model of responsible tourism. We are oriented to a high-quality service and commitment in benefit to the most disadvantaged people; so that the impact is the most positive thing for the area inhabitants; from visits to the nomadic for a cup of tea, eat in the homes of Berber families up the promotion of local trade.
