The best local tour guides for families

Everyone’s new best friends. Descendants of Vikings and presidents, artists, changemakers, and year-round residents in the destination you’re visiting—our smart, intuitive, and inspiring local guides understand the interests of kids, teens, and adults. On plenty of occasions, kids and teens go their carefully chaperoned way, and you’ll have generous time for adult-focused activities like wine tastings, longer walks, and gourmet dinners.

Give children the gift of travel

Raise global citizens with diverse experiences worldwide. Meet children at a school in Peru, make music with Moroccan Berber tribes, lunch with the indigenous Embera tribe in Panama, and stargaze with Wyoming cowboys. Learn from eloquent, engaging guides as you hike receding glaciers in Iceland, watch the Northern Lights in Alaska or stand among archaeological wonders from Easter Island to the Great Wall of China.
