Meet Professor Harold Goodwin


Responsible Tourism without Professor Harold Goodwin would be like the peace movement without leaders like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi. Harold Goodwin’s conferences, research and writing have become crucial instruments for making sure that those in charge of travel companies and tourist destinations won’t forget their social and environmental responsibilities when dreaming up new ways of making money.

In this interview, Harold Goodwin tells us how it all started and how his views on sustainable – responsible – tourism have changed over the years.


The Good Holiday goes whale watching with Dyer Island Cruises

The Good Holiday is a great blog about responsible travel in South Africa and beyond. They recently went whale watching with Dyers Island Cruises. Not only did they see some fantastic whale action, they were also really impressed with the staff.

“I cannot begin to explain how incredible the team is. Truly, one of the things that makes or breaks an experience for me is the crew and service. I almost want to give ALL OF THEM 1000/10 if that is at all possible. Everyone involved, work to make their love for the ocean visible. In all honesty you will be safe and entertained and informed and happy!”

There is still time to see the whales until the end of the year so hurry and book your trip soon!

Welcome to Green Heart Tourism!

Did you know? The name for Green Heart Tourism was inspired by Het Groene Hart in The Netherlands. It’s where I am from (near Gouda) and it seemed like a great name for a responsible tourism consultancy.
