If you're looking for a family holiday with a difference, our family and teen tours cater specifically to families travelling with young adults and children. Each itinerary has been carefully planned with the family in mind with interesting excursions and comfortable transportation and hotels chosen specifically for their family-friendly facilities. All of our family tours include a range of cultural and active experiences to tantalise young travellers - riding a camel at the Pyramids, sailing on board a felucca in Aswan, climbing the Great Wall and flying kites in China and camping out in the Sahara Desert in Morocco to name just a few.
We've carefully planned the pace of our family tours so there's a good balance of activities as well as enough down time for everyone to relax and recharge.
Where possible we've selected hotels with pools, which are great for a bit of R&R for all the family and a perfect way to top off your adventures of the day.
Your arrival day has no scheduled activities, allowing time for everyone in the family to settle into their new environment. Departure days are free too.
You won't be short of ways to keep the kids entertained, from camel riding to meeting panda bears and lot's of interesting local interaction along the way.
Visiting exotic countries, these trips are a great way to broaden your children's minds and introduce them to the different lives and cultures of people around the world.
There may be the chance for the children to socialise with others their own age and make new friends, while also spending lots of holiday time with the entire family.
You'll be shown around each country by our expert and passionate local guides who'll give you lots of tips and provide a true insight into the local way of life.
Travelling to far-flung places across the globe can be daunting but we're on hand, before and during your trip, to ensure that your holiday with us is smooth and hassle free.

This selection of special family holidays cater for parents with young children aged 5 upwards to 15. There's lots of hands on activities, local interaction and educational fun too, where everyone gets involved. On the day you arrive, there are no scheduled activities, so there's time for everyone in the family to fully settle in before the adventures ahead. Likewise, the last day on tour is always free for relaxation, fun in the sun or snow, and any last minute souvenir shopping.
For a real family treat, why not take your tribe out to Africa, nature’s playground and a wildlife haven. On our overland camping safaris there are a number of tours which have family-friendly departures suitable for children aged 6 - 17 years (on overland safari tours in East Africa the minimum age is 8 years old). These trips are not exclusively for families, though there's a selection of dates which families are very welcome to join. Nothing compares to seeing wildlife up close in its natural habitat and these action packed adventures are guaranteed to keep your little monkeys entertained! Our Africa lodge accommodated safaris are also a great choice for children aged 12 and over.
