Try Small World Travel to go country-hopping with a custom curriculum.
Travel the globe on an educational trip with a specific theme, such as retracing the paths of great explorers or visiting endangered monuments. Small World will handle your itinerary, house rentals, guides, excursions, and lessons. Wait until the kids are in middle school, then plan early (18 months in advance is ideal), pack light, and don’t buy a round-the-world ticket—too inflexible. “Most families want to miss winter, spend more time in cities, and see Africa, Antarctica, and the Galápagos when the season is right,” says owner Samantha McClure.
Twelve-month trips for a family of four from $10,000 per week; smallworld.travel.
