Global Family Travels’ mission is to Learn, Serve and Immerse, using travel to build cultural bridges and to foster global citizens. Therefore, we are delighted to share 3 immersive family trips to Peru’s Sacred Valley aimed at directly improving the lives of people in the communities we visit. In partnership with two amazing non-profit organizations that work in Peru's Sacred Valley, these trips include a unique mix of cultural and educational activities, home-stays and participation in local service projects to support their missions to empower women and educate the disabled.
Peru's civilization is the oldest in South America and although it is well known for being the heart of the Inca Empire, the country was also home to many diverse indigenous cultures long before the Incas arrived. Travelers on each of these trips will also learn more about the ancient Inca civilization and explore around Peru’s Sacred Valley.
Of course, a visit to Peru is not complete without taking in the magic of the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World!
