TORONTO — G Adventures has launched two new ‘National Geographic Family Journeys’ trips in Italy and Tanzania, both available to book now.
According to David Green, managing director for Canada, the new trips launch as the small group operator reveals that bookings for the ‘National Geographic Family Journeys’ travel style have more than doubled in 2023 when compared to the same booking window in 2022 (Jan. 1-June 30). This 106% increase in bookings year-on-year, he added, is solid evidence that family travel is back.
“We’re seeing strong interest in Asia and Central America in particular, so families are looking to head further afield and check off some of those long-awaited bucket-list trips,” said Green. “We’re also witnessing a large number of multi-generational bookings – grandparents travelling together with parents and children – so people are really wanting to share experiences as families.”
The ‘National Geographic Family Journeys’ collection was created for travellers ages seven and up. The two new trips in Italy and Tanzania join the current collection of 10 trips, bringing the total to 12. Other destinations include France, Iceland, Morocco, Japan and Peru.
The two new trips are:
- Italy Family Journey – Venice to Rome: Travelling from Venice through the heart of Tuscany to Rome, this journey, priced from $4,599 per adult and $4,319 per child, includes gladiator ‘training school,’ art classes and cooking lessons.
- Tanzania Family Journey: Priced from $6,399 per adult and $6,119 per child, this journey allows families to head out on safari in Tanzania’s world-renowned national parks and conservation areas. As they travel from Arusha to Mto wa Mbu, families will also learn about traditional crafts and hear how locals work to protect their cultures and creatures of their homeland.
Each itinerary features interactive activities inspired by National Geographic’s expertise in photography and storytelling, wildlife, culture, history and geography to encourage kids and adults to connect with the world around them. Prices above do not include international flights.
