Some of our most exciting new adventures are crafted for kids by kids at heart. Children are at the center of each adventure in our Precious Journeys collection. These journeys allow our youngest travelers, in an age range of about 5 through 11, to explore a world of incredible animals, amazing landscapes and fun things to do. Our new concept includes educational experiences in culturally rich locations in South America, India and Africa. The programs encompass subjects such as geology, zoology and archaeology set in compelling destinations that demonstrate how fascinating the subjects are in the real world. They offer children opportunities to learn from professionals in each field. Visit Precious Journeys in our Kids section, and read the most recent article about the collection in our Media Center.
