Will children enjoy an escorted tour of Europe? As a general rule probably not, but there is an exception to every rule and Globus Family Travel has found the magic key to the successful family tour. Many tour companies let anyone join their family vacations, but Globus requires at least one child age 5-17 to be part of every family travel reservation. So your kids are guaranteed to have other kids along and that makes the tour more fun for everyone! Parents will connect with other parents and grandparents can do what they do best: fawn over the grandchildren!
The love of travel is one of the greatest gifts you can give your children and it’s highly educational too. Kids actually visit the places they learn about in school, so history, art, architecture, even science comes to life with the help of a talented guide and life size props like the Colosseum of Rome, Big Ben in London or a castle in Bavaria!
Globus Tour Directors on the family tours are individuals who truly “get kids”. They love to pass on their knowledge as well as colorful stories in a funny and engaging way that will capture even the youngest child’s attention. The emphasis is on connecting: children with other children, with parents and cultures, scenery and wildlife.
All of the activities and excursions on a Globus Family Tour are geared toward the children. In London the double decker bus is used for sightseeing and a riverboat will take you to the London Eye. You will travel from London to Paris underwater via the Chunnel at 150 miles an hour! Show your family Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower then head for the setting of the Hunchback of Notre-Dame where they can try counting the number of gargoyles! In Italy the kids can try straightening the Leaning Tower of Pisa, enjoy Venice by gondola, decorate their own Venetian Carnival Mask and watch an amazing glassblower demonstration.
If Europe isn’t in the plans right now, how about a Grand Canyon adventure? Kids and adults alike will enjoy the many species of wildlife, including bighorn sheep, jackrabbits, and lots of lizards! Wouldn’t your children love a 4X4 Jeep tour of the Red Rock Country in Arizona…what fun! Everyone will be in awe taking in the sights from the Grand Canyon Rim. Or you might jump back in history to the “Old West”! Saddle up and ride a horse into Bryce Canyon retracing the trails taken by the notorious Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid and no visit to cowboy country would be complete without a Rodeo! The kids are going to love the Bryce Canyon Country Rodeo, with mutton bustin’ and bull ridin’.
These are just a few of the Globus Family Tour options so if your family is looking for a great multi-generational experience they will remember forever please call or email me to discuss an escorted tour designed for families!
