Travelers delve into local projects, volunteer efforts and give back to the community. Trek through the Andean mountains; learn about farming techniques; give back to community charities; or join walking tours led by kids who lived on the streets of Delhi.

Each Global CommUnity itinerary includes seven-night stays in luxury properties, community involvement, itineraries designed for families and a long list of add-on tour options.

Education is also a main factor in Global CommUnity excursions, including bow and arrow classes in the English countryside or visiting cold war bunkers in Moscow. Activity options are seemingly endless and a unique hands-on way to explore with the family.
