Following in the footsteps of the global tourism industry and guided by Travelife, the leading management and certification initiative for companies committed to reaching sustainability, Rhapsody Travel embarked on a mission to become a certified, sustainable tour operator, meeting all GSTC requirements by 2020.

Transparency is one of the most important aspects of being a sustainable tour operator and our decision to share our progress is publicized hoping for further participation from stakeholders and companies throughout Greece.

We began in November of 2017 with selected personnel attending a training seminar held by Travelife. Following their rigorous guidance for best practices, we were able to set and implement new policies in legal compliancehuman rightsexcursionstransportation, and customer communication.

After much dedication, we were finally granted the “Travelife Certified” award on June 28, 2019, an official recognition of our company’s full compliance with more than 200 GSTC criteria related to office management, product range, international business partners and customer information. The certificate covers the ISO 26000 Corporate Social Responsibility themes of environment, biodiversity, human rights and labor relations.


John Siokas, President of Rhapsody Travel, “Given our role as a major cruise line tour operator and being pioneers in the field of sustainable tourism in Greece, we understand the importance and responsibility we have in promoting sustainability to the industry. We are proud of our TRAVELIFE CERTIFIED AWARD and using our experience, leadership and influence we will minimize negative impacts of our operation on the natural and social environment. As it coincides with Rhapsody’s 20th year of presence in the Greek tourism industry, this is a remarkable achievement!”


Moving forward, we shall continue to implement our policies further and find additional ways to engage our suppliers and partner agencies. Our sustainability team constantly works with our cruise line partners to explore new sustainable practices and elements to include in our excursions, always taking comfort, safety and cost into consideration. We are also very eager to detect opportunities to develop fully sustainable destinations, new or existing!

We have made our new corporate sustainability policies publicly available.
