The Family Adventure Difference The best leaders

Our fun and experienced leaders understand the needs of different generations and are experts at ensuring that eveyone gets the most out of their experience.

Activities for everyone

We allow family members to spend quality time together while giving them the freedom to pursue their own individual interests. We provide optional structured activities including hands-on science and research opportunities; community service projects; active pursuits such as hiking, swimming and horseback riding; and time to relax and enjoy each other’s company.

Pre-travel engagement and post-travel follow-up

We help families prepare for and get excited about their experience by providing them with pre-travel discussion topics and activities, carefully selected books and access to insightful webinars relevant to their adventure. After the travel experience, we provide illuminating post-travel activities and service ideas.

Meet the locals

Our guests aren’t mere tourists but travelers in the truest sense of the word. We take the time to meet and get to know the locals. We visit homes, schools and community centers in order to experience the people of our host country, hear their stories and make meaningful connections.

Make a difference

We believe travel at its best can and should be about having a good time and making a difference. That’s why we provide families with an opportunity, through service projects, to help create a better world for all of us.
