G Adventures has launched two new National Geographic Family Journeys trips in Italy and Tanzania, both available to book now.
The tour operator said that the introduction of the trips comes as “demand for family travel exceeds 2022”, making the style of travel even more popular to book than it was pre-pandemic.
In Tanzania, families will embark on a safari, visit the village of Mto wa Mbu where they’ll visit a community tourism project and be shown the techniques used to create art from banana leaves.
In Italy, they will learn how to make their own Venetian masks, cook pasta in Florence and attend a gladiator ‘training session’ in Rome.
G Adventures revealed that bookings for the National Geographic Family Journeys travel style has “more than doubled” when compared to the same booking window in 2022 (January 01 – June 30).
Brian Young, Managing Director for EMEA, said that the 106 per cent increase in bookings year-on-year is solid evidence family travel is back.
“We’re seeing strong interest in Asia, Central America and South America in particular, so families are looking to head further afield and check off some of those long-awaited bucket list trips.
“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 is designed for adventure-loving families ages 7 and up in search of a “meaningful way to discover the world together.”
The two new National Geographic Family Journeys 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.
