Much more than a traditional tour operator, Global Family Travels’ mission is to Learn, Serve and Immerse, using travel as a means to build cultural bridges and to foster global citizens.In partnership with community-based tour operators and local non-profit organizations, Global Family Travels creates service learning tours for families which include a unique mix of cultural and educational activities, home stays and participation in local service projects aimed at directly improving the lives of people in the communities we visit. Expect to expand your family circle when you embark on a Global Family Travels trip!
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 tour offers unique educational opportunities to learn about the culture and history of the countries we visit.
Our enriching tours offer trip participants and the host community opportunities to work together on local service projects aimed at improving the lives of people in the communities we visit. Whether it is building a soccer field in Nicaragua, or working at a Panda Preserve in China, we provide plenty of age-appropriate ways for everyone in the family to give back.
Tour participants become immersed in the culture of the communities we visit by experiencing daily life with the locals! For example, many of our trips include a homestay with a local family, or the opportunity to cook a meal with our hosts.
