At Global Family Travels, we believe the most powerful way to learn is through first-hand experience, by allowing the country and its people to be our teachers. Each trip offers unique educational opportunities to learn about the culture and history of the countries we visit. We also supplement our traveler’s experiences with reading lists, informal discussions, and a pre-trip orientation which includes information on the culture and history of your host country, helpful words and phrases and etiquette guidance.
Our enriching tours offer travelers and our host community the opportunity to work together on local projects aimed at improving the lives of people in the communities we visit. As we strengthen our connection to the world around us and begin to see ourselves in others, we can’t help but feel a deeper sense of responsibility for the impact of our actions. This lends itself to the goal at the heart of our company – for us all to become better global citizens.
Our travelers become immersed in the culture of the communities we visit by experiencing daily life with the locals! Many of our trips include an opportunity to to enjoy a home-cooked meal with our hosts, and even a home stay in some destinations! By authentically engaging with our host communities, we learn to honor and respect diverse and traditional cultures and bring those cherished memories home with us.
