Hi,
Is "packages" in the above optional? If not, what meanings does it add to the base sentence? Thanks.

    Bamboo, a travel "package" is where one purchases an inclusive number of things, all included in the price. For example, if you separately purchase plane fare from Toronto to San Francisco, then separately purchase your hotel room for a week and then separately pay for a rental car, you are always bound to wind up paying more for the trip than if you purchase a "package" which will include all of these things.

    As a result, the travel agency not only deals in "ecotourism" but they also offer ecotourism "packages".
