Tour company launches new family programme for 2015, with an emphasis on adventures for your teens
G Adventures has announced a brand new line-up of age-appropriate activities specifically designed for teenagers in Costa Rica, Morocco, Peru and Vietnam.
All of these family trips are designed to deliver a mix of adventure and education and the new teen-focused journeys (for ages 12 and above) were developed using feedback from travellers.
Alistair Butchers, innovations manager at G Adventures, says travelling is a great way to open children and teenagers’ minds to the wonders of the world.
“New experiences lead to new interests and exposure to different cultures, languages and environments helps kids become responsible, well-rounded adults. What these new trips do is combine the best of our regular trips while ensuring families travel with similar, like-minded families,” says Butchers.
All family adventures are two weeks or less in duration and planned around school holidays. Group sizes are no larger than 20 travellers with an average of around 12. Each trip is led by a skilled Chief Experience Officer (CEO) who makes sure the trip runs smoothly and offers local insight into the destinations visited:
