Published since 2008, the Tao Guides, edited by Viatao, are alternative travel guides to facilitate access to sustainable tourism. They propose only socially and ecologically responsible places and activities. With values similar to ours, we are delighted to count them among our partners.
Local and living authors write each of the guides. The objective is to highlight the problems of each country and to privilege the meeting with the inhabitants. They are a perfect complement to the more traditional guides that we all know.
Tao France Guide: Basque Country, Centre Val de Loire, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Béarn-Pyrénées and the Escapades en France guide
Tao Europe Guide: Portugal, Lapland, Northern Italy and Tuscany, Sicily
Tao World Guide: Colombia, Thailand, Vietnam, Bali/Lombok, Peru, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Northern India
Each guide exists in paper and digital versions. You can order them directly from their online store.
Finally, they won the 2020 Sustainable Tourism Award in the Information and Training category, for the guide Tao Monde - 1000 ideas and addresses for committed travel! Congratulations to the whole team for this great award!
More than 80,000 copies have already been sold since its creation. Will you be the next lucky Explor'actors to slip it into your backpack for your next ecological trip?
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Guides Tao for sharing with us the following responsible hotels: Mare e Legnu in Corsica and Swasti Eco Cottages in Indonesia.
