Quite a fun and eye-opening excursion for families that we can arrange is a ‘Shopping with a Purpose’ tour with a guide where you can explore the town and purchase a few items that you can then deliver to specific projects or organisations that require them in the local villages – a fab way to explore the town and learn about the local projects whilst contributing to the local communities.
