ANAHEIM, Feb. 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imagine seeing the smile on your child's face as they earn a Junior Adventure Badge from a Park Ranger in Yellowstone, toss a home-made pizza together in Italy or connect with local children at an educational rights foundation in Capetown.

Family travel is made easy with Trafalgar, the leader of guided vacations, with 19 award-winning Family Experiences trips designed for all ages to Europe, USA, Canada, South America, and new for 2014, South Africa.

Trafalgar's best-selling trip is the 9-day Wild West, Cowboys & Buffalos, an action-packed, all-American adventure showcasing majestic National Parks, an overnight stay on a real working dude ranch and sight-seeing to famous monuments.
