FAMILY ADVENTURE TOURS

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.

TOUR REVIEWS

All very good, easy to book and communication well received. Our only problem we had was we were given the wrong hotel name on our Itinerery to where we should have been staying, which caused allot of confusion with our pick up, and we ended up staying a night in a different hotel, but it was all sorted out in the morning by hotel staff
Hotels were all very nice with friendly helpful staff, our guide communicated well with us informing us of pick up and drop off times etc, The tour was well planned out, The tour guide was very knowlegable, and did well at communicating in 3 different languages to our group. It was a good way of seeing many different places in Morocco that we would not have seen had we not done the tour

My dealings with Encounters were all excellent however there must have been a breakdown with Fez Travel as we weren't expected at Istanbul Airport and our guide was unaware we were leaving the tour a day early.( A Fez Travel rep eventually turned up and we were taken to our hotel so it was sorted.)
The tour was well organized and the tour guide and driver were excellent. Being a small group everything ran smoothly.Really appreciated the cold water being provided on the bus as we had some warm days.

Very efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. Great tour company, would 100% recommend this tour to other. Felt safe in Egypt the whole time!
Very efficient, helpful and knowledgeable tour leaders and guides, we learnthink alot!! Loved.our tour, we wished we had booked a longer tour though as we loved Egypt so much! Would 100% recommend this tour to others. Felt safe in Egypt the whole time!

This trip was about the same price as competitors but Encounters included the transfers and many meals. Some people may prefer to travel in local buses and stay in small hotels, but Encounters offers a more luxurious experience. On long hot days, the air con on the coach kept me going and I was delighted to take a swim in the hotel pool. The guide was brilliant, funny and engaging and managed to squeeze in some bonus excursions too.
Turkey was much greener and more modern than I expected. The historic sites were impressive and the tour went at the right pace. The hotels were all good quality, in good locations and had some impressive buffets. Of course there are plenty of ancient ruins, but each tells a different story so there were plenty of wow factors. My only regret was not giving myself more time in Istanbul.

Anthony was very helpful when we added on days in Jordan both before and after our tour and also offered border crossing advice. We'd definitely use Encounters Travel again.
Our guide Salah was excellent throughout the tour, tour bus was very good as well. Only minor problem was with our Amman hotel, which was a bit out of the way, but that's the downside of chosing a 'shoestring' holiday.
