READERS' CHOICE: What's The Best Volunteer Trip?

By Budget Travel
updated February 21, 2017

We get to share our travel picks with you all year long. Now it’s your turn.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be asking for a few of your favorite things, both large (airline, cruise port, national park) and small (which hotel has the best toiletries?). Then we’ll compile your suggestions and let you vote for your top pick in May. Come back often—we’ll be posting a new question almost every day.

Today’s question:

What's the best volunteer trip? "Voluntourism" is helping to reverse the negative image many people have of travelers. And it's not just slave labor—the best volunteer trips combine service with cultural and historical activities, so everybody goes home happy. What's your best voluntourism experience?
