Through these immersive, one-of-a-kind experiences, our travelers have the opportunity to exchange ideas, customs and problem-solving techniques in the spirit of mutual respect, and to contribute with time or resources to emerging communities.
In the heart of Bairro Alto neighborhood sits a hidden secret old convent with a beautiful history and a small, but beautiful, cloister. The nuns take care of the house, but mainly take care of 30 handicapped girls that have been abandoned by their families. Known for their famous jams (shhh – it’s a secret recipe), today you will join one of the nuns with a trip to the market to buy supplies, followed by a fun couple of hours making their exquisite jam. The jams are then sold by the nuns to help take care of the girls and their Convent.
Visit a Portuguese palace where you will be able to see how nobles lived in 18th century Portugal. The foundation contributes to the conservation and restoration of art pieces. Visit the Craft Center to observe their restoration projects at work.
Re-food is a local organization in Lisbon whose mission is to eliminate food waste and end hunger, involving the full community, in common cause. They take excess food from restaurants, cafes, and markets around town, repackage them and deliver to those in need. You are welcome to help in one of the three phases – collection, packaging or distribution.
Experience an evening of local dining as your family joins a resident family for a shared meal around their table. Learn customs and traditions while exchanging ideas about family life and culture. Based upon the preference of the client, as well as destination, this opportunity may be a shared meal, cooking lesson and/or market visit.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
