1. A girl-driven travel itinerary
Family trips and women-only group trips are on the rise, but very few are tailored to young girls, and their mothers. Our mothers and daughters trip includes chocolate making, trekking with Llamas, shopping in fair trade markets, farm to table restaurants, learning ancient weaving traditions, cooking workshops, home visits and meals with local girl scholars - hiking Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World becomes mere icing on the cake.
2. Authentic mother-daughter bonding time
No work. No cell phone. No distractions. Just a carefully curated experience that includes: a cultural immersion program to give your daughter a glimpse into a world outside of her own, some adventure to keep her engaged, time outdoors to keep you both active, and time to relax and recharge together.
3. The power of giving back
GOOD Travel is a social enterprise focused on giving back to the environment, local economy and community and puts people and the environment above profits. Aside from donating a portion of the trip fees to the non-profit Peruvian Hearts, your money goes to local hotels, guides, restaurants, and partners who also give back. Being an active part of paying it forward has never been so easy or so rewarding.
4. An introduction to real life sheroes
Our mother daughter trip is designed in partnership with Peruvian Hearts – an organization that works to end poverty and gender inequality by educating young women and creating community leaders. For these girls, it is more than just a club, it is a lifeline: To be selected as a scholar is highly competitive. Not only must a girl be incredibly driven with high grades and come from a low-income family but she must have big dreams as well. The scholars are working towards high school and college degrees in engineering, science, teaching, Michelin Stars and tourism. Your daughter will not only leave with a new penpal, she will leave with role models.
5. Perspective like no other
Your daughter will learn to be a responsible traveler, a kind and compassionate friend, a researcher of new cultures, an explorer of new experiences and with an appreciative of all she has. You will both gain an understanding of new cultures, a glimpse into how others live, and perspective you can only gain through travel and the experiencing of new and different places and culture. We mothers spend our days pulled in so many different directions, but through this trip, you get the gift of extended time, time to connect with your daughter in a meaningful and memorable way.
The combination of all these GOOD reasons coupled with the incredible experience that comes from simply being in a place like Peru, is what makes this trip one of the best mother and daughter all inclusive vacations.
