In an effort to discover what children ages 6 to 15 are looking for in a vacation, Big Five Tours & Expeditions recently launched the Kids Kouncil, a junior think tank that is now ready to debut its first kid-friendly itinerary.
The new India Kids Kouncil Approved itinerary is the first in its collection, and includes experiences ranging from exploring the natural habitat of tigers in Panna National Park and taking a family Segway tour through New Delhi to visiting the one-of-a-kind Sulabh International Museum of Toilets.
“I had a Eureka moment as I watched these kids working together to create the first of its kind India Kids Kouncil Approved adventure,” said Ashish Sanghrajka, president of Big Five Tours & Expeditions, in press materials. “[It] told me that we were on the right track. If you want to change the world, start out on a positive path that inspires confidence and creativity with the ones who will one day be in charge. Let them see that their opinions can make a difference now and they will be more willing to lead the changes of the future. That is what our Kids Kouncil initiative is really all about.”
Additional highlights of the 13-day India itinerary include learning about the world of Indian elephants at the Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in Agra; visiting the ancient Abhaneri step wells, which date back to the ninth century and were used as the baths and reservoirs of the royals; stopping in a puppet-making workshop in Jaipur to learn about India’s cultural traditions; and more.
Rates for the India Kids Kouncil Approved itinerary start at $800 pp dbl, per day with a minimum of four travelers required.
