It’s that time of year when families start thinking about where to travel for Summer Vacation. I often hear from clients that they just don’t know where to travel with their family or extended family. There is a whole world to explore and your family will enjoy every minute of it!
The key is ensuring you are selecting the right type of vacation. There are trips to places around the world that are geared to families. Here are a few of my favorites:
Do you prefer to travel on your own and hand-select your hotels and activities? If so, an independent trip would be perfect for you. Our specialty is creating independent vacations custom tailored to our clients’ preferences. Taking into account your hobbies and your dream experiences, then creating your completely handcrafted itinerary. For example, have you been dreaming of visiting the Vatican but are overwhelmed by the images of millions of people waiting on line? We can arrange for an early morning visit before the Vatican is open to the public. You can enjoy a visit with your private guide without the crowds!
Does the idea of unpacking only once and visiting a quaint European village everyday capture your curiosity? A European River Cruise may be perfect for your family. The cruise line we work with exclusively now has a partnership with Disney where they plan family friendly activities on and off shore. Kids of all ages will enjoy scavenger hunts, bike tours, and many other fun filled experiences (with and without the parents!). These river cruises have a strong focus on food and wine experiences including tasting menus and private visits to wineries all over Europe.
Does traveling with a group of other like-minded families appeal to you? Guided Tours may be the best option for your family. Some families make life long friendships with those they meet on these trips. One of my favorite tour companies caters to families. They have a multitude of trips worldwide where the activities are all family friendly and geared to different age groups. The trips are designed with exclusive experiences (like dining in a castle or a hot air balloon ride in the Serengeti) to spark a passion and bring the families closer together.
Do you plan on traveling with your extended family? If you are planning on taking the grandparents or perhaps traveling with other families we would love to customize a private group just for you! You can travel with a guide and have exclusive experiences just with your group.
Travel with your loved ones… whether your interests are in exploring European cities, an African Safari, or the wonders of Central America. Our expertise is matching you with the perfect experience for you and your family.
Let’s face it, we live in a world of busy schedules, iPads, and smart phones that does not leave much time to reconnect as a family on a regular basis. Treasured memories created on vacations will invigorate your family and, I promise, you will reminisce about the special moments for many years to come.
