From €207 - €270 excluding flights
Tatra Mountains family holiday in Slovakia
Memorable parts? Climbing up the Tatra Mountains to be within sight of the Polish border. Tips? Take a good phrase book for Slovakia or brush up your German on food and drink because many of the local restaurants have no one who speaks English and the Menu is not translated into English, so without this your choice of restaurant is very limited, which means you miss out on some real gems of local village life. Local benefits? Yes, but there was scope for more. The hotel we... (more)Rosemary Milton

Cirali villa vacation in Turkey
We are going back - that says it all! The freedom our 2 boys (18 months and 3 yrs) had both at the house and Cirali in general was the best bit. Running about in the beautiful garden, with the chickens, finding eggs to go with their (delicious!)breakfast. (more)Nisha Vasavda
Total delight. Super bungalow, charming people the most beautilful bay in the world, excellent food reasonable prices. Who could ask for more (more)Boris Sackville

Volunteering Thailand, wildlife rescue centre
I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. It’s hard to say what was the most memorable part of this vacation as there was so much variety and different experiences, it’s difficult to decide what was the best part of it. (more)Cathy Bisset
I had so many fantastic experiences, and the centre itself was in an idyllic area, on the grounds of a Buddhist temple. One highlight was spotting wild elephants in a nearby national park, after dark. (more)Olly Carney
From £549 excluding flights
Kerala family activity vacation, India
I would thoroughly recommend it. We have no experience of this kind of undertaking and we had an exceptional time that catered perfectly for a family of 4 including an 11 year old girl and 14 year old boy who all valued the tour immeasurably. (more)hugh garling
Absolutely incredible! The children loved it (age 8 and 5) as well as the parents, we had so many rich experiences and wonderful stories to take home. (more)Sarah Bland
Excellent, it was so good. There is nothing I could fault everything met or exceeded our expectations, some of the main highlights were: the homestays, the food, the people, the variety of activities, visiting a local school and orphanage, elephants, the Ayurveda. (more)Juliet Shayler
From £980 excluding flights
Jungle conservation & research, Peru
Memorable parts? Getting to spend time walking through the jungle and seeing so many great animals and birds. The best moments were the tree frogs, manu poison frog and the rainbow boa! I really enjoyed the construction of the bird hides and biogarden even though sometimes it was really hard work! Pancakes for breakfast were great! Tips? There was a lot of walking and physical activity so it’s really important to expect to do lots when you get there and probably need reasonable fitness! Local... (more)Melanie Veal
From £1095 excluding flights

Our guide Hai was fantastic, he had lots of knowledge, had a great sence of humour and looked after us well. He really helped make the vacation as fantastic as it was. (more)Elizabeth Morgan

From US $1381 - US $1724 excluding flights

In Borneo we met and travelled with like minded families and individuals, who along with good humoured guides added enormously to the pleasure of the trip. It was excellent and would thoroughly recommend for those who are adventurous, like variety and don't mind a bit of roughing. (more)Michael Mosley
It was a fantastic vacation and I felt that we were away for much longer than we actually were. We got to visit amazing places and it felt like an adventure but at all times it was stress-free and safe (which really helps when traveling with young children). (more)Emma Beeston
Fantastic! Aided greatly by a local guide who was both extremely knowledgeable, organised, and tolerant of persistent questioning by both the children and adults on the trip. (more)Barbara Burke
From US $1467 - US $1618 excluding flights

Family multi activity vacation in the French Alps
Memorable parts? We will always remember how gracious our hosts were, the wonderful food, and the fun loving spirit of all the crew. Tips? Go on the guided hikes. Sure you can read a map but you'll enjoy the trails more when accompanied by Bruno. Local benefits? Maybe. Perhaps more effort could be put in to describing how the local community benefits. I think a lot of the produce was locally grown. We loved canyoning but were concerned about how our impact might affect... (more)Charlie Cottingham

Be brave and try every activity. Local benefits? The guides and local hotel owner were originally British but are now resident in Andorra and they have partners who are local people.
