This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Tailor made family vacations
What are the main benefits?
A tailor-made vacation is a unique experience designed to match exactly what you’d like to do. For the past 20 years, we’ve specialised in family adventures – so we’re perfectly placed to create a bespoke trip with mum, dad, kids, and maybe even grandparents, in mind. Our dedicated team of specialists has young families, and they’ve travelled with kids in tow – so they know what it’s like and what you’ll need to make your trip flow.
How much does it cost?
A tailor-made family trip doesn’t have to break the bank. We can help you choose the mode of transport, style of accommodation and activities in your itinerary that will perfectly match your budget. Over the years we’ve built our supplier relationships to enable us to get the best possible price for your trip, and gathered a lot of tips and tricks to create a perfectly-balanced journey. Our aim is to deliver authentic travel experiences every time.
How much support is there?
You’ll be accompanied by one of our specially-trained tour leaders during your vacation, who’s there to find that family-friendly restaurant, make the jungle come alive or show you the hidden tunnels at the temple. You’ll be met at the airport on arrival and have your leader’s and our UK office’s full support during your trip, whatever you choose to do.
We think a family tailor-made adventure is the perfect way to enjoy the world in safe hands but with your own stamp of individuality.
Responsible tourism: Indochina small group tours
The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups, just your family and friends, traveling on an itinerary planned with your family in mind, by a team of experts in close collaboration with our in-country team of locals who know the area like no others. Throughout the planning process and during the operation of your vacation steps will be taken to ensure negative impacts on the environment and cultures being visited are minimised and positives are maximised.
Throughout your trip you will be encouraged to take steps to ensure that your journey is environmentally responsible as possible. Your group leader will be on hand to assist with the appropriate disposal of rubbish en route, recycling wherever possible. We also encourage all our travelers to use refillable water bottles rather than purchasing regular supplies of bottled water.
The sale of bottled water contributes to an enormous environmental problem around the world. In addition to the water in bottles, the production of a 1 litre plastic bottle takes 2 litres of water and 200ml of oil. Once discarded a large proportion of these end up in limited landfill or discarded in waterways and natural environments and we believe that their use should be discouraged.
We use local suppliers where ever possible, from the cyclo owners that take your tour around Phnom Penh, to the owners of the bikes we hire to explore the countryside, to the actual Cambodian team that we work with to design you tour. Should you chose to include a visit to a local family in your vacation, the family will financially benefit directly from your evening sampling Khmer life. Your family will stay in smaller, locally owned hotels and eat in friendly, small restaurants, favouring traditional dining and supporting local enterprise over larger chains. All of these small actions ensure that the financial benefits of your visit goes directly where it is needed most, into the local economies and supporting the regions which your family are exploring.
The Silk Farm we visit on the way to Siem Reap is a non profit organisation which relies on donations and visitors to stay open, while a visit to the Banteay Srei Butterfly Centre sees the admission cost paid by visitors used to support local poverty alleviation and conservation projects, whilst at the same time showcasing a brilliant array of native Cambodian butterflies.
When traveling through South East Asia, we encourage your family to dress conservatively and respect the culture, particularly outside the major cities where more traditional values are dominant. For example, knees and shoulders should be covered particularly when visiting temples and places of religious significance.
