Best Cultural Trips for Families

Cultural family trips, tours, and safaris focus on the joy of cross-cultural learning and communication through travel. Since it is distinct from community-based tourism, you will not be immersed quite as deeply in a single culture or single-family experience. You will meet a variety of people very different from you and learn from them.  JOURNEYS cultural family trips explore cultural diversity - artistically, musically, spiritually, and through conversation and interaction. Our cultural family trips utilize smaller, locally owned accommodations whose owners may participate on the trips. Your guides are likely to be representatives of the areas and cultures you will visit, but they are also good English speakers and experienced family trip leaders. If your family has specific cross-cultural travel interests in music, art, language, dance, or another area, call and ask to speak with a JOURNEYS family specialist about your interests.
