Big Five Tours – Precious Journeys for Children

I love working with my Virtuoso partners, and Big Five Tours is a special partner who just “gets” what it’s like to travel with wee kids, and ensure there is learning and adventure for them too.

Have a look at this announcement about their “Precious Journeys” program.




Big Five pays attention to younger clients
Company launches a new idea in travel with children

Stuart, FL (July 15, 2014) – Big Five Tours & Expeditions is crafting a new generation of
adventures that have the children as the center. Precious Journeys programs are geared to
children, ages 5-11, and their travel needs. Everything from the style of their documents to the activities are tailored to them.

“This idea has evolved following a conversation I had with Anne Scully, McCabe World Travel, a Virtuoso member,” said Ashish Sanghrajka, president of Big Five. “about the lack of authentic journeys that see children as a vital and important part of any family trip, and not as an afterthought or inconvenience. We have looked at a wide range of topics and issues that make this collection stand out in the industry.”

Only adventures that meet certain criteria will be considered for inclusion. Big Five’s team
evaluated the expected subjects such as accommodations and meals. But they also evaluated a myriad of subjects that include necessary inoculations, flexible touring schedules, number of flights on any given day, included breaks, cultural interactions and activities with kids of similar age, adaptable menus and meal times, destination altitudes, driving times, and minimum number of nights for each stop.

“I have two young kids, so I know how much planning needs to go into international travel with the family,” said Sanghrajka. “We want the entire journey from start to finish to be fun adventurous and safe.”

The Precious Journeys collection helps young travelers explore a wondrous world of exciting locations filled with incredible animals and fascinating people. These journeys are crafted to inspire our children to meet the world… firsthand
