& Inclusion

Safe Places

Welcoming Atmosphere

Respect & Civility

Continuous Effort

We're a community committed to inclusion.

Our beliefs are simple: everyone should be welcomed to travel, and to travel just as you are. Sadly, not everyone feels empowered to travel. All too often people are discouraged directly or indirectly to explore because of race, gender, income, sexuality, religion, experience, physical or mental capability... the list goes on.

All the travel businesses you find on Painted Circle have joined our genuine efforts to run inclusive businesses - businesses that are ready to welcome you just as you are - not because we think we need to, but because we enthusiastically want to share amazing travel experiences with you. Don't let anything stop you from traveling - find what interests you and reach out if you need help.

You can read more about Painted Circle's work supporting inclusion here.
