Traveling as a family can be a great opportunity to spend quality time together away from hectic schedules that tie up our everyday lives. It can provide children with unbelievable, "hands on" learning experiences and inspire young minds to understand, respect, and appreciate other cultures and environments. 

However, traveling as a family is not without its hazards and can create added challenges for the safety, health, and enjoyment of everyone involved. With this in mind, we have created a family suggestion sheet to help you make the most out of your experience abroad. Below are some general tips that apply to any of our adventures and some tour-by tour comments to help you decide if a specific trip is right for your family. For more information, please contact us anytime. We look forward to helping you create the perfect adventure for your family!
