I just returned from a 2 week program in Tanzania with my family ( husband and 3 teenagers) run by Cross Cultural Solutions. Every aspect of the program exceeded our expectations and my children now say that they don't want to take any more vacations unless they involve some sort of volunteering. The home base was very comfortable and the staff was warm and welcoming at all times. Our work assignments were all very positive and we were so happy to be able to experience Tanzania without feeling like complete tourists. We were definitely shown a different side of things than if we had stayed at a luxury hotel and met only other tourists. The lectures and trips that we experienced were all relevant and very interesting , and I'm sure my family will never forget this trip!
