Whether it is a cultural adventure to Egypt to discover the Pyramids and learn about the ancient history of the Pharaohs, or a jungle adventure bamboo rafting and riding elephants in Thailand, we have plenty of specially designed family holiday itineraries for you to choose from.
Taking your children on holiday can be an unforgettable adventure for all the family. Children learn by experience, and the educational and character building benefits of travelling from a young age are well known. We have designed a range of holidays specially suited to the needs of families with children. Some of these special requirements include child friendly guides, extra free time, more flexibility to do and see what you want, the proper management of important safety issues, and most of all, the reducing of stress for the parents. Running your tour privately allows your guide to be more flexible with your itinerary during the day, and to spend more/less time at certain sites according to the interest and ages of your children. There are many countries in which we operate that are very well suited to active and adventurous family holidays that will not only keep the children happy and occupied but also be challenging an rewarding for parents too. Take a look below at some examples of fun family holiday itineraries or try reading a few of our features and articles for more inspiration on where to go for your next family holiday.
