Family vacation in Costa Rica
Memorable parts? Tortuguero National Park-beautuful accomodation in the middle of the rainforest with howler monkeys and loads of birdlife very close-boat trip really quiet and special. Zipwiring incredible- Quite physically demanding but worth it as really long-I think 18 in total zip wires and run across a valley with the rainforest beneath you-Amazing. Tips? Great for teenagers- Busy itinary and good mix of wildlife walks/boat trips where you get really close and the adventure... (more)Helen Shard
From US $2034 - US $2457 excluding flights

Mexico, Belize and Guatemala vacation
Fantastic. My teenage, and somewhat well-travelled children have rated it as the best vacation ever. (more)Alex Holmes
The morning spent at Tikal in Guatemala was excellent. This activity is definitely best done in the early morning light as it gets very warm and less pleasant to walk in the jungle after 10am. (more)Diana Urbina
From US $1035 excluding flights
Family teenager vacation in Peru
Memorable parts? The camping, food and walking through the Sun Gate and seeing Machu Piccu are a few of my many highlights. Our guide, Reni was terrific and the family we travelled with were super. The vacation gradually gears you up for the big trek, you acclimatise in Cusco before exploring the Sacred Valley and attempting the mountain bike ride. Tips? The accommodation is on the whole fairly basic, with one or two quirky gems, but we weren't expecting the hotel in Agua Calientes... (more)Jo Turnbull
From US $2714 - US $2767 excluding flights
South East Asia tour, Hanoi to Singapore
Snorkelling for the first time in Nha Trang (and second time in Ko Phi Phi!) was fantastic, jungle trekking in both Thailand and Malaysia was awesome...Outstanding - varied, educational and stacks of fun. (more)Matt Williams
There were so many highlights to this vacation which covered so many countries... Staying the night in a hilltribe village in northern Thailand, snorkling on the coral reefs around Ko Phi Phi, 4x4 driving, drinking tea in a tea plantation in the Cameron highlands...exploring great cities like KL and Singapore. Fantastic, but tough going at times! (more)Bridie Brittain
From US $3618 excluding flights
Family vacation in Italy
Excellent. Never been on a led vacation before and it was amazing - no stress as everything taken care of but still room for some choices. Where next? (more)Claire Nicol
Great...Climbing Vesuvius and the Capri boat trip were the most memorable parts. (more)Claire Wilde
The vacation in Italy was the 2nd organized by and I am recommending your company to all my friends and family members. Looking forward for the next adventure! (more)Teresa Trippenbach
From US $1656 - US $1686 excluding flights
Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro tour
Memorable parts? There were a number of great parts to the vacation and it is impossible to single out one simply due to the diversity of the experiences we had. The whole vacation was amazing, but if I had to name the top three things I would say (in no particular order!) going to Iguazu Falls (especially the boat ride under the falls!), the boat trip we went on in Paraty and just being in Rio. Tips? If you want to see Buenos Aries or Rio (and I suggest they're worth seeing!!) then... (more)Carol Clutton
From US $2034 - US $2153 excluding flights
Family adventure vacation Kenya
Every day was an adventure, from orphan elephants to flamingos, migration queues of wildebeest, close encounter with lions, elephants and seeing the elusive leopard and cheetah - and that was only the safari aspect. (more)Valerie Rogers
There's so much in terms of both variety and number of experiences, it's hard to capture one moment. Dolphins, elephants, stampeding water buffalo, oh and the wonderful stars at night, and the warm, smiling people. It was all unforgetable. (more)Morag Reid
From US $2170 excluding flights
Morocco family vacation
It was a great vacation for us with many fond memories I would do this trip again! (more)Elke Franc-Poole
Excellent experience, especially for the children. A great tour to get an idea of different ways of life in Morocco, from rural villages to big cities. (more)Kate Newman
All amazing - sea kayaking over the sunken city, trip on the Gulet, theatre at Xanthos and friendly Turkish people...Relaxing, fun, educational. (more)Amanda Weaver
From US $643 - US $681 excluding flights
Walking vacation in Montenegro
Fantastic vacation. Amazing place and lovely people! There are some lovely walks, a chance to see and sample the local culture and the incredibly diverse flora and fauna. Plus abundant opportunities to swim! (more)Rosie Smith
gotta be five stars for all the above reasons, still glowing from it ten days later! (more)jon Aldous
There were many memorable events; easing ourselves into crystal clear, fresh water, freezing rock pools! The 2 excellent meals prepared for us by Tania at her home...everything home produced. (more)April Saltmarsh
From £595 - £625 excluding flights
Family vacation to Jordan, Journey to the Lost City
At the risk of sounding over the top with enthusiasm I would answer "All of it" to this question. We went to Jordan and returned renewed, stimulated and educated and with a new understanding of the culture, history and politics of the Middle East. This was in in no small way due to the effort and enthusiasm of our guide, Usama Awad. Are all of this companies guides as brilliant as he was? (more)Fiona O
It was a very inspirational vacation...Staying at Dana guesthouse supported a very important nature biosphere. (more)sharyn hall
This trip delivered everything we wanted, adventure, relaxation, new experiences - without having to think too much after a busy year, thanks to our wonderful guide. (more)Tania Riddiford
From US $1202 - US $1225 excluding flights
Wildlife vacation in Costa Rica
Memorable parts? Seeing magnificent rainforest from high bridges on flanks of a volcano, seeing a turtle laying her eggs, giving bottle of milk to young spider, howler and capuchin monkeys at a rescue centre. Tips? Don't miss out on tours which give you full experience of the natural history of Costa Rica. Local benefits? I think the money I paid for my tours helped support the conservation and wildlife work and that my tour helped the businesses of the hotel and restaurant... (more)Celia Home
From US $855 excluding flights
Eastern Europe cultural tour
Memorable parts? Traveling to new countries others have not heard of or still think are in a war zone. Unspoilt, beautiful countryside and towns with people who have not caught up with the greed of tourism. Tips? This trip is full board and your have the company guide who looks after you, then you have a local guide who speaks good English and a driver for each country. The tour is full on with lots to see and do but not much free time if you want to do your own thing. Although... (more)Anne Higgins
From US $1278 excluding flights
Family winter vacation in Slovakia
Memorable parts? Snow shoes, village museum. Tips? Enjoy and take as many kids as possible. Local benefits? Yes, very positive. Overall rating? 9/10 (more)Barry Domvile
From US $1399 - US $1603 excluding flights
Central America tour on a shoestring
Memorable parts? Roatan, one of the bay Islands of Honduras, was beautiful and the diving was fantastic, and I'll probably never forget the chicken buses! Tips? If you're used to traveling independently then be prepared to find the lack of freedom quite restricting, however it is great not to have to worry about transport and accommodation! Local benefits? I feel that it benefitted local people as wherever possible we patronised local businesses and shops, and as far as is... (more)Victoria Baynes
From US $1980 excluding flights
Costa Rica vacation, encompassed
The most exciting part of the Costa Rica encompassed trip was zip lining above the trees in Monteverde Cloud Forest and abseiling down the waterfalls on a canyoneering trip outside La Fortuna. (more)Louise Muller
Definitely white water rafting on the way from Cahuita to San Jose was the highlight. A great day out, the river was perfect. Lots of adrenaline and lovely refreshing water. An amazing lunch was laid on for us as well by the side of the river. (more)Elaine Bettaney
The most memorable part was going into the beautiful clear, turquoise and remarkably warm water of the Pacific ocean, for a swim just as the sun was setting - an amazing way to start the vacation. (more)Susie Everest
From US $1440 excluding flights
Family vacation in Vietnam
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
We were immersed in this really poor country, with the hint of past traumatic occupation and wars, and received the most generous opening of hearts from this 80% buddhist country. (more)Victoria Macdonald
From US $1353 - US $1739 excluding flights
baby friendly family accommodation in France
Leave your toys and books at home!! Everything you need for a couple of weeks is already there. (more)Robert Bradley
Amazing. A lovely cottage with lovely owners who couldn't do enough to help. We received a lovely warm welcome. The cottage was immaculate. Everything had been thought of. (more)Kathryn Rawlinson
The cabins are fully equipped and a lot of thought was put in every detail...The atmosphere and being able to spend private quality time with my family was the best part of the vacation. (more)sari ziv
From €550 - €850 per cottage per week (sleeps 2-6)
Inca Highlights, adventure tour
Most memorable were horse riding on the hills above Cusco, Cusco itself a beautiful city, the floating reed island and most certainly the time on the island with local family, I loved their way of life and their hospitality. (more)Ruth Stanley

From US $2493 excluding flights
Galapagos family vacation
We loved the vacation - it was the whole family's favourite to date and was made special because of the other families and the Guides, esp. in the Galapagos where Pedro, the local guide, was intelligent, fun and great with the children. (more)Vimty Muir
The most memorable part of our vacation was the unique wildlife, unafraid of humans - the seals especially. The local people were very friendly and worth spending money on to benefit their economy - children beautiful. (more)Barry A Clout
From US $2548 - US $2623 excluding flights
Family adventure vacation to Nepal
The whole experience will live with us forever and it is almost impossible to single out separate elements. Overall the people were fantastic, so friendly, helpful and humorous and our guide was simply outstanding. (more)Andrew Mackay
The most exciting part was the snow - so long since we have had 'real' snow in the south of England. (more)Jilly Knight
The trek was an excellent adventure - Jagan, our guide was outstanding, especially with our children (7 & 5 years old) who were able to walk the entire trek! (more)Lisa Kelly
From US $1517 - US $1920 excluding flights
Borneo family vacation to see Orangutans
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 $1618 - US $1815 excluding flights
Family tour to Morocco
The most memorable part was the camping trip into the Sahara Desert and the nights at Tazzarine Campsite - home of Said and his family. (more)Meriel Griffiths
This was an amazing experience. The trip was suitable for all ages and it was culturally challenging. I would recommend the trip for families. The most memorable part of the vacation was camping in the desert and sleeping under the stars! Amazing! (more)Tania Knight

Loire Valley self catering accommodation
Memorable parts? Everything! We loved being surrounded by historic French villages; staying in a beautiful rustic (but VERY comfortable) 19th century stone cottage; the warmth and approachability of our hosts Nicole and Alex Crawford; and being spoilt for choice when arranging our daily activities. We went for lovely long walks; visited outdoor markets; ate wonderful, good value food at local restaurants; explored castles, chateaus and other historic sites; people-watched from snug, friendly... (more)Jane Lewis
From €722 - €850 per cottage per week

Egypt family vacation, Feluccas & Pharaohs
I think for my 11 year old daughter, seeing everything that she has been learning about in school about Egypt come alive before her very eyes was exciting.
