How can I verify Bamboo?

Bamboo is one of the original authors of global give-back travel and a leader in this field. Founded in 2001 by two guys with an extensive background in international development and travel.

We are now known as one of the largest authorised travel companies operating in this industry. With years of experience comes trust, integrity and an established community of customers that we call our Bamboo family or BamFam.

Remember, we're always available to answer questions about who we are and what we do, and unlike most, we actually have a substantial list of ways that you can verify that we are who we say we are.
