RAM Viaggi

RAM Viaggi is a small Tour Operator which deals exclusively with "fair" and "responsible" tourism – holidays which always have a link with local people. It specializes in Asian destinations (Indian region, Tibetan areas, south east Asia, Middle East), and in Italian ones. See our website for all our proposals. All texts on the website are in Italian, but all our guides speak English, many also Spanish and French, so if you are interested you are welcome to write us for more details.
RAM Viaggi has been among the first to promote this kind of "encounter" trips in Europe (since 1991, under the umbrella of RAM Association, today its "sister" company); it is also a founding member of the Italian Association for Responsible Tourism (AITR).

RAM Viaggi/ Criteria and rules for all trips

We work hard to apply, in all trips, four distinctive guidelines:

1. A human approach (preparatory meetings before leaving; feedback procedures dur- ing and after the trip; meetings with testimonials/communities/local projects during the trip)

2. An economic treatment fairer than usual: we take local guides, local small scale accommodation, local food, local transports; the price of every trip includes a slice (from 60 to 120 euro per person) to be left to a local development project, which is suggested by RAM beforehand, and it is visited during the trip itself.

3. An approach to have enough time: time is our tyrant. So if the trip is short, we choose to see less destinations, but deepening them as much as possible.

4. An environmental approach with less contradictions as possible: we strive to choose hotels with solar energy, we tell clients to take care about our garbage, showers, behaviours, etcetera. We promote compensations for flights.

Our destinations

We have a number of trips to Asia (many itineraries options), all lasting between one and three weeks. Destinations are Iran, Oman, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma (Myanmar), Indonesia. We also have Capo Verde in Africa and Cuba in the Caribbean, in addition to shorter trips to Italy (weekends, weeks), in several destinations with local correspondents – meant specially for foreigners, mainly English speaking. We offer trips for schools too, towards Italy and towards several less-conventional European destinations.
