The company provided an excellent pre tour service and the information sent was accurate and useful. I would definitely look at using them again and recommend them to any family.

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, 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.

It was my first time to go for trekking and was really great experience. The guide with us (Chuda) adjusted our pace of trekking well. Lodging and food were also very nice. I hope i could continue the trekking few days. 3 nights 4 Days trek was too short!!

During the trekking about 2800 m, I felt a light headache due to its hight. Chuda noticed it and helped me to carry my luggage. It was very helpful to me, and I was impressed by his good obesuation skills.

1st and 2nd day were easy. 3rd days were the hardest day for me with long hours walk and climbing down. Which caused horrible ache, over all scenery was very beautiful; especially walking in the forest was pleasant. Chuda san (Guide) had been always very nice, kind, diligent and modest. We are so satisfied with hid accompany, very appreciated. Food was also very good with lots of choices at every restaurant. For lodging , I loked the view of the 2nd night hotel where I was able to enjoy mountains. I also liked the relaxing and beautiful village of the 3rd night. Hotel at pokhara was clean and at a very convenient location.

Our guide Jhanak was amazing. He taught us many things about the mountains, the people and the country. We think that the agency was very helpful for all the logistic and the organization of the trek.
The price is also good and every aspect was above our expectation. Jhanak is rally professional and he showed he controlled the situation perfectly. He was very nice and kind and generous of his time.

The Pilgrimage trek to Damodar Kunda and Lo-manthang in Upper Mustang in Nepal has been exceptional and truly exciting and fulfilling. The trip was made comfortable and enjoyable by the excellent services rendered by the staff of Alpine Asian Treks & Exp (P) Ltd who took special care of each one of us to make it a life time experience for all of us.

            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.

            About Alpine Asian Treks & Expedition

            Trekking tours in the Himalaya’s are the speciality, however cultural tours and family friendly offerings are also available.


            What Makes Them Stand Out?

            Though their name suggests that they are a trekking tour company, Alpine Asian Treks is actually much more. They offer several cultural tours and family friendly tours along with the classic Himalayan trekking experience. They do have a special focus in trekking and peak climbing, so if you’re looking for a this kind of trip, they would be perfect.


            Who Travels With Them?

            Trekking and peak climbing tours are specifically geared toward fit, active, and adventurous travelers. Alpine Asian Treks will be more enjoyed by those who are experienced. If this is less appealing, consider a family friendly tour, or cultural adventure. Their tours are budget conscious without jeopardizing safety.


            Where Do They Operate?

            They operate in the Himalayan regions, primarily Nepal. Treks include the classic circuits and Everest climbs, but they also venture into some peak climbs and treks that may be more unfamiliar.


            Why Travel With Them?

            A lot of choice among treks and climbs, including several that are less well known puts Alpine Asian treks a step above the rest. Their tours are perfect for experienced trekkers, as well as those searching for a beginners challenge.
