Tour Tips
  • Find a tour that focuses on kid friendly activities. Many guided tours welcome children, but not all focus on activities specifically geared toward them. So finding a kid-centric tour can keep them entertained and engaged. And these tours usually try to craft a balanced itinerary so parents get a fulfilling travel experience as well.
  • Cultural tours with a lot of demonstrations and hands on activities are perfect for kids - they help bring the past to life! 
  • If going on a tour that involves adventure activities, such as river rafting or zip lining, make sure to double check all age requirements. These are in place for everyone’s safety and are important to adhere to.
  • Families often get discounted rates for museums, tours, and landmarks, so be sure to ask about this when booking your trip.

Family Magic Rafting Trip

5.0 August 2017 ROW Adventures Recommend: Yes The Family Magic Trip down the lower Salmon River in August was AMAZING! The guides were awesome! So knowledgeable, funny, and resourceful. The food was better than most restaurants and my kids loved it (as did I)! The River Jester (Lily) was such a sweet yet stern and fun lady that kept the kids entertained and they loved her. They setup camp for us each day at these amazing beaches! I have never been rafting, and they were there to make it seem easy and doable! I loved that they taught us about the local history and environments. A stop at Spalding was awesome start to the trip! I enjoyed the paddle boats, inflatable kayaks, and the oar boats. I even became part of the swim team but it was a good experience having the guides there to ensure our safety. I loved cliff jumping, the short hikes, swimming the rapids, and swimming in the river with the kids. The time with friends and family was great. It was so relaxing and good to meet so many different people I feel that I can call my friends now. Best part was sleeping under the stars with my family hearing the rushing river next to us. The guides made the trip so personal and they were caring! Thanks so much Mark, Max, Connie, Jonas, Curtis, Lily, and Bethany! Absolutely recommend going on a trip with ROW and I plan to with my children again, it was worth every penny! Thanks Jason for helping plan the trip for me! Read more

You'll have a trip of a lifetime traveling with Myths and Mountains!

Bhutan: Fall Festivals, Families and Nature

5.0 August 2017 Myths and Mountains Recommend: Yes (Our favorite memories are) attending the Nimlong Festival, being present at the temple when the Master returned from 6 years of meditation on the mountain; walking into the temple where we received prayers and blessings to see a tray that had been prepared for each of us with our photos and placed next to the altar; Kinley and Pema (!!), visiting the READ Center and singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with a little girl there; seeing READ in action; walking on a trail through the rice fields, seeing the women bent over working; watching monks create the masterpiece mandala and then destroying it; the Thai massage on our last night in Bhutan; the absolute beauty, peace and serenity of the country; sitting quietly and hearing only bird song or the bells of a prayer wheel - too many highlights to list!

(Our favorite hotel was) Nak-Sel Resort and Spa - absolutely beautiful, spacious, lovely setting and spa facilities.

Jen (at Myths) took the time to talk with me about spending a day in Thailand, suggesting tour ideas, highlights (and low lights to avoid), warnings about the heat and crowds, etc. It really helped me focus in on what I wanted and then to enjoy my day there thoroughly. Toni painted a picture of Bhutan and the itinerary there. The information about what to expect, cultural norms, food and lodging, the map of Bhutan, the packing list were all very helpful.

(Our guide) Kinley was wonderful - such a sweetheart and he and Pema are a great act together. They worked very hard to make sure that we were all well cared for, go everywhere we needed to go and on time and with the proper dress and gear. I know there were a few glitches, there always are, and we never knew anything was wrong. We may have missed a thing or two because they were closed or inaccessible. That goes both ways in that we were able to return to one of the temples where the Master returned to great pomp and ceremony because of Kinley's diligence and that had to be covered by letting something else go. Kinley was one of the best guides I've experienced in my travels; he was very caring when I got sick and took great care of everyone. He has a very soft spot in his heart for Toni and Myths and Mountains and that showed in all his actions.

You'll have a trip of a lifetime traveling with Myths and Mountains!

(Our guide) Kinley was incredible!

Bhutan: Fall Festivals, Families and Nature

5.0 August 2017 Myths and Mountains Recommend: Yes All of the information (from Myths and Mountains) was very helpful from the packing list to the essential country information. Jen was helpful with everything!

(Our favorite memory was) watching the mandala being made, the various rituals (especially the Dued), the visit to Mebar-tso Lake, Nimalung Festival and Taktsang pilgrimage.

(Our guide) Kinley was incredible! He is so knowledgeable about all things Bhutan, so patient, kind, considerate and thoughtful. Plus, he has a great sense of humor. He is an excellent communicator and was always so helpful with everything from start to finish. I cannot say enough about him. He is a true gem!

Everyone at MM were very helpful and responsive.

Bhutan: Fall Festivals, Families and Nature

5.0 August 2017 Myths and Mountains Recommend: Yes Loved our tour guide and driver in Bhutan, Kin-le and Bema. Great access to cultural experiences, that I felt would be normally difficult to experience. (Favorite hotel was) Druk. Nice hotel with good food. Good location. (Favorite guide was) Kin-le. Very knowledgeable, has great connections to get us access to special activities. Read more

Family Volcanoes Sicily Trip - Warne/Fox Family

Sicilian Volcanoes Family Adventure

5.0 July 2017 Exodus Travels Recommend: Yes Fantastic trip and our guide Frederika absolutely was the best. My 10year old
thought she was 'awesome'.
Volcano and the islands are beautiful and Etna is just another world.
The extra spent to go to the top of Etna is a must. At 3,400m you see how
powerful and alive our planet is - it make you fell very humble to be there.
The Etna Alpine guide was so passionate and informative about his 'island'.


Frederika (FA) was the best. She was informative, engaged with the kids
brilliantly - even on our rest day - and could not have done more for us. She
told us in advance what to expect the next day and couldn't have been more
helpful

She should gain a vote as your group leader


The islands are more hot but more humid than you think. Scarves to cover your
phase in the sulphur fumaroles on Volcano and Etna are helpful -e especially
for the kids.
The Etna Center provides you with mountain boots,gators and fleeced
waterproofs all within the extra excursion cost if you are trekking to the
summit.
Sturdy walking trainers or trail shoes are suitable for all other hikes


Fantastic trip - my 10 year old has voted it his best holiday ever - 8 days
seemed longer when you were there as we we were very active but could easily
have stayed for longer.

Family Friendly Trips & Tour Advice

Multi-generational travel -- when grandparents, parents and kids all travel together -- is one of the hottest trends in group travel. As every parent knows, to have a successful trip, the first ones you have to please are the kids. But that doesn't mean limiting yourself to beach or theme park vacations. Many tour operators offer special family trips -- including adventurous and grandparent-grandchild trips -- that are specially suited to keeping kids (and everyone else) happy travelers. 

Education Meets Adventure

Cultural tours are a fantastic way to introduce kids to the magic of history and give them exposure to other cultures and customs. Hands on museums, activities, and demonstrations are the perfect way to provide a connection with place and past. For kids, as with adults, the intersection between education and adventure is much smaller when traveling- as they discover the world, they will not even realize how much they are learning.

Endless Wonder

For kids, travel is the whole experience, from the moment you arrive at the airport. Through their eyes, even the stress and annoyance of long lines at security and customs can be enjoyable. And as they discover the world around them, soaking in different cultures, foods, and languages, you will gain a new appreciation as well. 

There is some debate as to the best time to start traveling with kids. Is as a baby too young because they won’t remember? Is as a toddler too difficult? Whatever you choose, know that there are several tour companies that cater specifically to families, and will help provide the support you need, as well as fun and engaging activities for the younger travelers.
