4 Types of Tours That Will Benefit Children

July 13, 2018, Author: Beyond Boundaries Travel

According to an article by Dr. Margot Sunderland for The Telegraph, taking kids on a holiday supports their explorative urge and their capacity to play. It makes them more open to playing with ideas once they grow up, which is a trait common to successful entrepreneurs. This is just one of the many benefits of going on trips and tours with a child.

Here are some ideas of what activities you could do while on a holiday:

Ghost Tours

Sandlapper Water Tours, a company that offers haunted tours in Charleston, explains that ghost tours usually talk about the superstitions surrounding a place and the apparitions that haunt it. Sites of ghost tours usually involve old or abandoned houses, forts, ships, or hotels.

Nature Tours

These involve exploring a natural habitat, such as an island, a beach, or a forest. The tour guide informs the participants about the animals that live there, how they hunt, where they breed, and whether or not they’re endangered.

History Tours

These are similar to ghost tours but without the scary aspect. What this tour focuses on is the significance of the old site and the notable figures who lived there. The staff involved in the tour could dress up in the style of the time when the site was being built.

Sunset Cruises

Lastly, sunset cruises are tours that could be considered more leisurely than the other three. It’s because this is held on a cruise ship and there’s no specific place that the tour guide would give a lecture on. Still, sunset cruises give guests a view of a city’s harbor, which could be a point of inquiry for curious tourists.

Scientists report that kids benefit from being taken on holiday trips and tours. This is because their urge to explore gets honed, and they get stimulated once they play around. For parents, this should be an incentive to take the kids on any tour.
