Global Visionaries (GV) is proud to be hosting an all-ages Experience Guatemala trip from November 19 through 27, 2011. We are currently almost full, however there are still a few more spots available for adventurers to sign up!
This trip is a great way for you to experience Guatemala with your family as it combines sightseeing with cultural immersion while being less labor intensive than our other programs.
The trip is led by tour guides and longtime friends of GV trained by Rick Steves. Participants will explore areas from Guatemala City to Antigua, the jungles of Tikal and the majestic Lake Atitlan. In the nine day “Experience Guatemala” trip you will be given the opportunity to enjoy culture, explore the country’s highlights, and travel with Global Visionaries; long respected for its student leadership work in Guatemala.
Global Visionaries’ in-depth understanding of Guatemala combined with the invaluable assistance of Rick Steves allows us to create a tour that blends the best of both worlds; an exciting sightseeing adventure with both meaningful learning and cultural exposure. Guatemala offers an unforgettable travel experience from the Indian villages, jungles, dazzling Mayan ruins and volcanoes that pepper the landscape.
The current cost of the trip is $2290 per adult and $1290 per child. $1000 of the adult trip fee is a donation to Global Visionaries and therefore will be tax deductible. The trip fee includes room, board, transportation, and meals. Plane tickets to and from Guatemala City and money for extra meals and expenses are not included in this fee. A deposit of $400 per person is needed to hold your spot. Availability is based on first come first served.
Come explore with us as we visit this exceptional country tucked between the Caribbean and the Pacific. Immerse yourself in local culture by visiting a woman’s weaving cooperative, touring GV’s rural school projects and picking coffee beans with Guatemalan farmers. If you cannot make this trip the next trip is being planned for early spring 2012. For more information, call Jan Slack at 206.322.9448 or visit our web page.
