At Immersion Tours, we believe that “take only memories, leave only footprints” (Chief Seattle) can be taken a step further; tourism can be a strong social integration mechanism for the most vulnerable in our communities. Right now, only 5 out of 100 US dollars from tourism remains in the local communities. In contrast to this decreased investment, tourists are increasingly looking for opportunities that will allow for engagement with and support for the local communities they visit.
Immersion Tours is committed to creating tours that allow tourists to experience the local culture while also giving back in a way that will develop sustainable tourism opportunities in currently vulnerable communities. We will invest 15% of our yearly profits in these vulnerable communities to fund tourism education through an NGO, Futuros Profesionales Integrar, so those interested can join the tourism labor market under fair conditions. Additionally, as our business grows, our recruitment and hiring will be focused on providing job opportunities to qualified individuals in these communities. Booking a tour with us will leave you with lasting memories of an unforgettable cultural experience that you can be assured will also have a positive impact on the communities you visit.
