ABOUT US

"Travel is the best learning a child can get, especially when the teacher is his/her mom."

Little Passports is a novel concept in the kids travel space for India. We organise educative travel tours for kids aged between 3 to 15 and kids will be accompanied with mother/father. The concept resonates with today's parents who value 'learning by doing.'

These trips are in tandem with popular school holidays. The trips are age appropriate and the child will be accompanied by an adult. We ensure special care of their needs like kid friendly food, activities according to energy levels etc.

We engage younger children in the tours by accumulating new experiences along with the joy of travel. For elder kids, the tours aim at not only travel but also to attain new skills and hone present ones.

Little Passports envisions to be synonymous with unique destinations coupled with the mother and child bond.

The founder Prachi Kagzi is a travel evangelist and mother of a five year old. She has been in the corporate world for over 7 years before deciding to follow her passion of kids and travel. She and her husband like to travel to off the beaten path destinations. She has helped many in her family and friends plan their travel for the last decade.
why travel with us
Little Passports founder Prachi has travelled over 45 countries and still counting. She has been travelling independently since a young girl and has the sense of a World traveler. She has lived abroad in her formative years and has thereby become adaptable to new environments. She has travelled extensively with her son from age 3 months and aspires to turn all those travels with her son into trips for Little Passports.
BENEFITS OF TRAVEL
by Prachi Kagzi
"The World is a Book, and those who do not travel read only a page"
And to turn our kids into avid readers we must TRAVEL, Travel, travel! Kids learn multi-fold in trips as they are exposed to many experiences, simultaneously. A new country, cultural aspects, landscape, weather, family bonding, group decisions and many more. An U.S. Department of Education study found that kids who travel did better in reading, math and general knowledge than their peers who didn't travel. Travel is a valuable part of a child's education that "contributes to cognitive growth and stimulates a child's sense of wonderment," says Dr. William Norman, associate professor in parks, recreation, and tourism management at Clemson University in South Carolina. "Providing kids with the experience of travel broadens their horizons and opens up their minds to learning" he says. It also shouldn't be a surprise to learn that adults who experienced educational trips in their teenage years were more likely to attend college and earn a higher income. According to a consumer travel survey conducted by the U.S. Travel Association and Travel Effect, learning-focused travel impacts academic performance and career growth. The data found that adults who took educational trips in their youth make 12 percent more per year and were significantly more likely to graduate from college than those who did not take such trips. Prachi Kagzi, travel curator for Little Passports, who considers herself a travel evangelist, lists out some benefits from her personal experiences:
Research is Fun
Research is Fun
The Pre-Internet days, we spent weeks researching places through books, making detailed notes and opening up the humongous atlas during or our family voting sessions as to where to go! I think that was part of what made every trip for us so exciting, knowing just enough to get us interested, yet still recognizing that we wouldn't really know what it was like until we stepped off that plane and saw everything with our own eyes.
Strengthening Family Ties
Strengthening Family Ties
My mom is very energetic on trips. She believed in immersive travelling and would point out flora, fauna, local customs and the most random things to us. This made us build stronger bonds as we didn't have to worry about the daily chores or homework with her! Long road trips were never my number one choice, but I do have some fond memories of sharing inside jokes with my brother on them. Travel brings out the best in you.
Befriends The Situation
Befriends The Situation
I remember so many bad situations on the trips but as kids we learned to embrace them and move on. Whether it was the gigantic Iguana at my door in Langkawi, fuelling my Herpetophobia or spending the night in the almost-non-maintained hotel on a religious trip. Sometimes you even find the humour in them.
Combat Boredom
Combat Boredom
On trips there would be no time to spare taking in all the sights and smells but if there was the odd hour where there was nothing to do, I wouldn't run to my mom (Mom, I am bored!), instead I started taking to sketching or even counting tiles! You become more self-reliant and respect everyone's space.

How it Started

Little Passports germinated due to the extensive enquires Prachi would get for exotic locales and feedback on her encounters. Although, so many of her family and friends would take keen interest she noticed hardly any of them actually went. She realised it could be due to the fact that these places are out of their comfort zone or they lack company for these trips.
Thereby she thought to follow her passion of kids and travel and incept Little Passports. Little Passports will give parents and kids the luxury of taking the road less traveled along with the safety of group travel. The tours will give the feel of travelling like a local however with the comfort of home.
