An entertaining afternoon was spent with our guides Kevin & Dylan for the sunset at Uluru on Friday! We couldn’t have wished for more perfect conditions with full Moon & Mars hanging off the majestic rock

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

      About AAT Kings

      Beginning in 1912, AAT Kings has been a pioneer in leading guided bus-tours in Australia and New Zealand.

      What Makes AAT Kings Stand Out?

      AAT Kings operates coach tours through Australia and New Zealand. They offer multiple holiday types including day tours, extensive guided tours, immersive travel experiences, and outdoor adventure tours. See the best of what Australia and New Zealand have to offer, from natural phenomenon, to urban areas, to cultural experiences.

      Their appreciation for the native cultures is one thing that really makes them stand out from the rest. Your tour will include many moments highlighting the Aboriginal culture in Australia and the Maori culture in New Zealand.

      Because they have such a strong and specific destination focus and have been around for over 100 years, they have had many years to hone truly unique itineraries. This focus means they have many strong connections with local outfits, restaurants, wineries, and other key places you’ll visit on your itinerary.

      Who Will Enjoy Traveling with AAT Kings?

      AAT Kings have a wide variety of tours, appropriate for all ages and activity levels. Coach tours are perfect for older travelers or families with young kids. You can cover a lot of ground in comfort and most logistical aspects are taken care of.

      Their tours are best suited to those travelers who want an element of comfort, good value for the cost of the tour, and are interested in learning about the culture in Australia and New Zealand. In addition they also will enjoy an easy tour pace with time to relax.

      Top Destinations

      AAT Kings operates tours throughout most regions of Australia and New Zealand.

      AAT Kings Travel Style

      There are a few different ways you can travel with AAT Kings. Their main offering is group tours utilizing large comfortable coaches - these tours are between 4-22 days. They also offer smaller group tours, known as “Inspiring Journeys” which allow for a more immersive experience, and more premium style accommodations.

      If you’d like a small group, but are less concerned with higher end details, AAT Kings also offers budget small group tours, focused on Australia, known as “Aussie Adventures”. You may find that these tours don’t hit as many tourist sites, but they do highlight the culture in an unforgettable immersive way. Ideally suited to young travelers who love a good time.

      Short breaks and day tours are also available through AAT Kings. Their “Short Breaks” are great for travelers with a sense of adventure and who want to travel with different groups throughout your Australia or New Zealand trip. Perfect for combining independent travel sensibilities with a professionally planned itinerary.

      Why Choose a Tour with AAT Kings?

      Is your next trip to Australia or New Zealand? The unique focus that AAT has in these countries will provide a different kind of experience than a typical itinerary from a global operator might.

      Their tours have a luxury touch without being full blown dress for dinner type tours (and without the luxury price tag!). You might find yourself enjoying a white tablecloth dinner in the Australian Outback, or sipping a glass of wine on a private vineyard tour. These little touches are some of what makes AAT Kings special.

      If you’re traveling with young kids, AAT Kings could also be a great option for you. They have a number of family friendly tours to choose from. If you’re looking for a hassle free, premium coach tour experience, led by dedicated, knowledgeable, and fun tour guides, AAT Kings is the perfect choice.

      About The Family Adventure Company

      Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

      Who Travels With Them?

      A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

      How Does it Work?

      No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

      Why Travel With Them?

      The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
