We slow the pace, minimize long drives, carry snacks and drinks, and make frequent stops for impromptu cross-cultural interactions on our family adventure vacations. We plan fun activities like camel
rides, caving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, swimming in pools or boogie boarding at the beach, and traveling to wildlife or archaeological sites with easy trails and stimulating learning opportunities. Local guides and drivers are often teachers or parents who combine a mastery of their profession with personal experience creating fun family activities and interpretation of local cultures and ecosystems for both kids and adults to learn and enjoy. We use family-style accommodations with flexible room arrangements and menus, and a pool wherever possible!
We know by our own experience, if the kids are stimulated, having fun, and safe while traveling, then parents are usually having a good time too! The better prepared, the more you will all enjoy your trip. We provide thorough pre-departure information for parents and send personalized packets to your children including colorful posters, laminated field guides, diaries, reading lists, and language and geography primers.
Children qualify for discounted vacation prices when sharing a room with parents and usually get a 25-50% discount on international air travel according to individual airline policies.
Plan your own private, custom family adventure itinerary or we can match your family with other kids of common age and interests on designated family departures. Depending on the ages of your children, and the interests and abilities of parents and grandparents, we can plan an itinerary to any of our worldwide destinations.
