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 $2654 excluding flights

Fabulous if you're into activity vacations that are not too crowded. (more)Cordelia Howitt
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable vacation. (more)Graeme Everard

From £820 - £880 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
From US $1260 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 $3251 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 $2412 excluding flights
Family vacation to National Parks in America
Hiking up to Angel's Landing in Zion National Park, horse-back riding in Utah, seeing my eleven year olds hike 9 miles in 35 degrees without complaining were the most memorable moments. (more)Rebecca Hill
One of the best vacations I have ever had!! It was a worry wondering how we were going to get on with our traveling companions but in fact they enhanced the entire vacation experience. (more)Amanda Taylor
The National Parks are very well managed - and quite spectacular - but the best bit was the horse riding at the 'mountain ranch' - good horses, well looked after and an excellent evening ride catered for all abilities. (more)Christopher Hawker
From US $2849 excluding flights
Croatia family activity week
The vacation was brilliant. Activity balanced with proper relaxation. We have come back really rejuvenated. Craig and Xania (and Zora-the dog) work very well together to pull the experience together so you can just get on and enjoy your break. (more)Paul Irving
Excellent! The best parts were actively exploring the Island of Vis, on bikes, kayaks and foot. Beautiful place, beautiful people. (more)Diane Johnson
Our kids, aged 5 and 11 had a terrific time and really loved the activities as well as mucking about in the sea, snorkelling and swimming...Great! "Fantastic, awesome, really good!" (comments from the kids). (more)Diana Lloyd
From £820 - £880 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 $651 - US $688 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 $1104 - US $1263 excluding flights
Family winter vacation in Slovakia

From US $1490 - US $1830 excluding flights
Family camping vacation in America
Memorable parts? Yosemite and Grand Canyon National Parks, walking amoungst the Hoodoos in Bryce Canyon and sleeping under the stars in the Navajo Tribal Lands. The children had the most wonderful time paddling in rivers, playing in the sand, climbing up rocks at the Kodachrome campsite, riding bikes in Yosemite and following the geology time-line in the Grand Canyon. Tips? Mostly don't bother to pitch the tent - just sleep under the stars! Take as little baggage as possible - you... (more)Helen Perry
From US $2209 - US $2629 excluding flights
Texas small group holiday, America
Memorable parts? What an amazing trip! My favourite part of the tour was rafting down the Rio Grande river in the warm sunshine and stopping off en route for some wild swimming. Having said that though, every single day of the trip was exhilarating and there was such a wide range of activities and experiences that the nine days went by really quickly in a blur of excitement. Big Bend National Park was stunning and it was really refreshing to be somewhere so remote and wild. Our guide was... (more)Elfie Burgess
From US $2719 - US $3029 excluding flights
Canadian Rockies & wilderness walking holiday
Memorable parts? Hiking the Iceline trail in Yoho National Park. Seeing grizzly and black bears by the roadside. Tips? The pace of this vacation is a bit frenetic and there was very little 'down time'. Days started early and every minute was taken up with hiking, cooking for the group (of 16 in our case) and washing up, putting up or taking down tents and traveling between destinations, but, despite the hard work, it was one of the best vacations I've ever had. Truly fabulous group... (more)Christabel Owens

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
Catalonia vacation, cycling and relaxation
We all had a brilliant time and I can't thank Alan and Vivian enough for the warm welcome we received and the thoughtfulness they demonstrated while we were there. They are super hosts and really did think of everything we might have needed. (more)Jane Edwards
It was an unexpected delight. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody. (more)Lisa Kirkhope
Fantastic apartment. Great introductory cycling with interesting routes and very well supported by Alan and Vivian. (more)matthew spencer
From €375 - €799 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)
Alaska vacation, classic camping tour
Best vacation that our family of four has ever had. (more)Howard Robinson

From US $2909 - US $3219 excluding flights

Rio was the least interesting. Everywhere else was fantastic. Amazing sites. Great circuit...Amazon lodge guide and Rio guide great. (more)Isabelle Dubois
The entire trip was extremely memorable, but, the most exciting part was swimming in the Amazon River System. (more)Matthew Fitzgerald
From US $2646 excluding flights
Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon
Excellent, great bunch of fellow travelers (tour was full at 13). Our tour guide, Dan, was great and made the vacation work really. He was always available to us and coped well with our different needs/wants and the unpredictable weather. (more)Wendy Pountain
The most memorable parts were my first view of Bryce Canyon; trekking down to Cedar Ridge in the Grand Canyon. (more)DC Gibson
Hiking through Bryce Canyon with snow capping the rocks. One group member said as we hiked down amongst the structures "We need to invent new superlatives". It was stunning...Fantastic, recommended. Great tour guide from this tour operator. (more)Melanie Atkins
From US $1619 - US $2159 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 $1497 - US $1988 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 $2782 - US $2805 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 $1573 - US $1618 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
A great fun family adventure. Kids loved it and didn't mind the traveling...the best part was trekking with camels in the desert and camping under the stars (more)Susan Gregory
From US $604 - US $764 excluding flights

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. Overrall our vacation was one of the best I have done. All our guides, especially Wallide, were very well informed and enthusiastic.
