G Adventures New National Geographic Family Journeys

G Adventures is launching two new National Geographic Family Journeys trips in Italy and Tanzania, both of which are now available for booking. 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, along with enjoying a safari, families will 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, and be able create some banana art of their own.

In Italy, they will learn how to make their own Venetian masks, cook pasta in Florence and attend a gladiator ‘training’ session in Rome.

The new trips launch as the small group operator and community tourism pioneer 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 to June 30).

David Green, managing director for Canada, says the 106% increase in bookings year-on-year is solid evidence family travel is back, and people are looking to explore the world with their loved ones again.

Said Green: “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. 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 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.
