Altiplano de Granada activity vacation, Spain
We enjoyed the treks and had some good time to relax. (more)Hanh Nguyen
It couldn't have been better. A wonderful, wonderful family vacation (children 8 & 9). (more)Lyndsay Turley
We had a brilliant vacation. The food and hospitality were excellent and our hosts were intimately familiar with the language, locality, food, history and culture. The hotel is as off the beaten track as one could imagine and is in a tranquil and scenic setting. (more)David Graham
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
From US $1497 excluding flights
Croatia vacation, activity week
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable vacation. (more)Graeme Everard
Excellent, superb, outstanding....the hospitality was outstanding, Vis is absolutely beautiful, and our hosts were wonderful. (more)Nancy Lauby
Totally relaxing yet delightfully active with superb hosts. My wife and I have never experienced any vacation quite like this one. My biggest worry was how long my afternoon nap was going to be. Food was off the chart delicious for every meal. I will recommend this vacation to all my friends. (more)Krist Thodoropoulos
From £820 - £940 excluding flights
Carmarthenshire self catering cottage in Wales
We had a great time - relaxing, some beautiful experiences (beaches, hills, islands and all the above animals). We were in bed every night by 9.30pm - tired but blissfully comfortable after a day spent exploring. (more)Jayne Obeng
Perfect!....The best thing about the vacation was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a vacation should be. (more)Kirstin Robertson
From £275 - £450 per cottage per week (sleeps 4)
Family vacation in Italy
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 Responsibletravel.com and I am recommending your company to all my friends and family members. Looking forward for the next adventure! (more)Teresa Trippenbach
The whole trip was memorable for the camaraderie, the knowledge of the guide and the food at the agroturismo farm. (more)Jacqueline Bunce
From US $1421 - US $1535 excluding flights
Devon self catering cottage in England
Very good. Great for families and for getting away from it all. It was all lovely and relaxing. Borrowing the bikes and cycling around the countryside was great fun! (more)bronwen burgess
The most memorable part of the vacation was relaxing in a peaceful setting with buckets of very fresh air...Very good. (more)Bob Simmonds
Excellent....The peaceful comfortable cottage and surrounding green and fertile countryside, with a good variety of walks and small market towns nearby. Our first vacation with the dog who soon felt very much at home. (more)Bob Simmonds
From £200 - £495 per week (sleeps 4)
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 $2208 - US $2412 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 $1074 - US $1104 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 $552 - US $703 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
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 - £940 excluding flights
Great Wildebeest Migration Safari in Kenya and Tanzania, 10 days
The best way to see the Wild life in Eastern Africa and the best way to go on Safari. If trekking was possible through the Masai Mara this would have been the only better way to see these amazing animals. For obvious reasons trekking is not possible and going in a car is the second best option. (more)Tomas Gregersen
The safari was a highlight and a very nice guide named Jackson from the tour operator. The guide was always there in time and very helpful. (more)Cathrin Skogly
From US $3330 - US $3430 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 $1618 - US $1762 excluding flights
Tanzania & Zanzibar holiday, 12 days
Memorable parts? The company were very flexible when preparing the trip and send us all the information we needed on a timely manner. All the lodges were very nice and the organization was really good. The best part was definitely our driver guide, Hamisi, who explained us so many things about the wildlife and the culture in Tanzania, responded to all our questions, and was really flexible and kind. We made us feel safe all the time and we really had a great time with him. Tips? Local... (more)Marta Miret
From US $3990 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 $1381 - US $1724 excluding flights
Kenya luxury safari and beach holiday, 10 days
Memorable parts? Getting up close and personal with the animals both on safari, especially in Ndutu where it is possible to off road, but also in the tented accommodation where we were surrounded by frolicking vervet monkeys, bush babies, mongooses and even a herd of elephants on one particularly memorable morning! Tips? Opt for the tented accommodation options - they were our favourites. Local benefits? We were pleased that the company was Kenyan-owned, and that we were... (more)Natalie Sayers
From US $1730 - US $1840 excluding flights
Peloponnese family activity vacation in Greece
It was lovely and authentic, not mobbed with foreign tourists, we felt we got to meet local people in their setting. Fabulous part of Greece with so much to see and do. Tripoli is not a tourist destination, which was nice in some ways but we stayed there a little long, the hotel could do with a pool, could be nice to also have a couple of nights elsewhere. (more)Julie Dickerson
Absolutely wonderful. Every day was different, but wonderful. We really enjoyed the scenery, the food, the people and the activities. (more)Angela Terrill
Fantastic vacation. Will certainly go there again. We spend the following week in Creta and enjoyed beaches and diving. Will have to there again to see other Greek wonders, including vineyard and olives trees. (more)Celine Bergeron
From €820 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
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 $1467 - US $1618 excluding flights
Luxury Greek Island vacation
Pretty much perfect!.....The tranquility, the love and care in every detail and the warmth and generosity of our hosts. (more)Michelle Aloof
The wonderful view of the sea from the cottage, and the fantastic swimming in the clearest, blue sea water i have ever seen ... Just go - you will be rejuvenated! (more)Raju Bhatt
The estate is absolutely beautiful and we really did feel at home. Overall - great vacation! The most exciting thing was hiring a boat and exploring and discovering deserted coves in this beautiful, unspoilt island. (more)Francesca Gill
From €2495 - €4950 per week (sleeps 4-6)
Brazil family vacation
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
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 $1762 - US $1830 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 $2412 - US $2729 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 $703 - US $734 excluding flights
Kenya mountain biking vacation, 10 days
Memorable parts? My family really loved cycling with the Masai guides through remote parts of the Kenyan bush, learning about the human and natural environment, spotting animals, visiting villages and camping with the Masai at night. Tips? I would recommend taking a few things to aid the cycling - for example special cycle gloves, proper water bottles, even padded cycle shorts - as it is a pretty bumpy ride in some places. One might even invest in a gel saddle! Local benefits? Yes... (more)Suzanne Franks
From US $2685 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
From £595 excluding flights
Egypt family vacation, Feluccas & Pharaohs
Sailing on a felucca along the Nile, then sleeping on deck overnight was the most memorable part... Excellent. (more)Julie Conder
Sailing from Aswan towards Luxor on a felluca with an over night camp on board was most memorable....My daughter and I loved nearly every minute of it. (more)Nicola Carroll
A wonderful experience for the whole family with lots of variety of activities, culture and adventure. (more)Mariella Gregori
From US $908 - US $1104 excluding flights
Family adventure vacation to Turkey
Memorable parts? Day spent gorge walking, then tubing followed by a quick tour of the ancient sites at Patara then a beer and a swim at Patara beach - it doesn't get much better! Tips? You need water shoes to navigate the rocky beaches and particularly if you want to go to Saklikent gorge, which you should. Local benefits? I think the vacation was as responsible as it could be given that any human contact with these ancient sites and natural environments are damaging. I liked... (more)Sally McEnallay
From US $950 - US $1140 excluding flights
Family vacation cottages in Andalucia, Spain

The vacation was fantastic, and exceeded our expectations in terms of wildlife sightings, activities, organisation and efficiency and even cuisine. Special mention should be made of our guide, Eduardo, who made a huge contribution to the vacation's success. (more)Sara Chanan
