Vacation type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re traveling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Traveling our way is a bit like traveling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Accommodation & meals:

On this trip we visit a couple of small businesses run by community members. They might include a small ‘chicheria’ where a local beer is made using locally grown purple corn, a pottery workshop and a chocolate making demonstration.

In Lake Titicaca travelers will stay overnight in the community of Llachon with a local family in their home. Here passengers will enjoy 3 meals cooked by the family. Ingredients used for the lunch are locally produced and sourced goods where possible. The opportunity to stay at a local family’s house is a truly amazing experience, raw and wonderful. Travelers in the past really got to interact with the family by playing games, helping cook meals and just feeling part of the community, even if it’s only for a short while.

For all non-included meals leaders will generally recommend restaurants that are making a difference to the local community. Often these restaurants in particular will donate a percentage of the bill to the tour operator’s foundation which supports around 50 global projects and has raised just shy of £3 million.

Community

Normally run with minimal power, no hot water this community based lodge in the Amazon Jungle is a real lodge. There’s no point traveling if you can’t experience something different.

This small group tour has a maximum of 16 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. The small number also allows us to stay in a unique, family-run hotel that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to its limited size.
