These Smithsonian Family Adventures offer families enriching cultural learning experiences in Tanzania, Peru, Costa Rica, Turkey and China, and two new Smithsonian Family Adventures will be launched in Ecuador and the Galapagos as well as Panama in 2013.
These exclusive family vacations, ideal for families with children ages 6 and up, take place during summer and winter vacations, and focus on providing families with enhanced educational experiences in some of the world’s most fascinating travel destinations.
These special tours combine Smithsonian Journeys’ 40 years of experience in educational travel with Thomson Family Adventures award-winning family vacation itineraries.
Tour guests will have extensive hands-on cultural learning opportunities within each of these destinations. In Tanzania, for example, guests travel full-time with a professional photographer to learn tricks of the trade.
In China, families spend three days at the Linden Centre in Yunnan Province, experiencing Chinese village life close-up.
Travelers on Smithsonian Family Adventures in Peru travel to a floating reed village on Lake Titicaca and in Costa Rica they study the earth’s dynamic forces during visits to two volcanoes.
Seeing the world through travel with experiences like these can teach children about life and what it means to be a part of this earth on a more immersive level, and these new trips offer truly exceptional educational experiences to all families as a way for them to get in touch with their world. www.familyadventures.com
