The Benefits of Immersive Family Travel 

Global Family Travels’ mission is to Learn, Serve and Immerse, using travel as a means to build cultural bridges and to foster global citizens. Our small group family vacations combine cultural touring, educational activities, home-stays, volunteer and service learning opportunities with host communities.  Here, and on our blog, we share some of our customer's perspectives about the benefits of immersive family travel with respect to our three pillars of Learn, Serve & Immerse when they traveled with us:
"Traveling to Nicaragua made me realize how much we take for granted, and how much we have. Yet, with what they did have, they made the best of it and seemed much happier without the numerous responsibilities that burden those in the developed world. We worry about such seemingly large problems with outcomes that barely effect our lives."

Travel to Cuba with your family! 

As we shared the Top 5 Reasons to Travel to Cuba with your family in our blog post this week, Cuba offers a welcoming culture, music-filled streets, and immersive opportunities for all ages! Previous regulations requiring that American citizens travel with authorized organizations have been replaced by a much more open policy, and Global Family Travels is excited to begin offering affordable, customized family-friendly trips to Cuba, with accommodations in Cuban homes, called Casa Paritculares, to this exciting destination. 


Cubans are particularly passionate about music, dance, visual arts, baseball, and cars, and they’re eager to share their talents with visitors. In our Cuban travel itinerary, we share some People-to-People exchange activities with artists and dancers, school students, farmers and cigar-makers.  We are also working on several itineraries with soccer, photography and cooking involved, so stay tuned, and please let us know if you are interested in traveling to Cuba by filling out this form, or contact us! 

Journey to India with the Kiran Anjali Project 

Global Family Travels, in partnership with Creative Journeys,  is delighted to offer a one-of-a-kind trip to India in February 2017 for supporters of The Kiran Anjali Project (KAP), whose mission is to provide guidance and financial support to institutions providing education to disadvantaged children, especially girls, in India. On this trip, participants will get an up-close look at KAP's projects as we visit The Wings School in Hyderabad, and the Baale Mane home for girls and Carnation Learning Center in Bangalore. We'll take time for sightseeing in these cities and complete our journey with a trip to Delhi and Agra to visit the magnificent Taj Mahal.
