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.

We safely returned to Luxembourg.

Weather is much colder here, had even snow on Monday, the day we landed in Luxembourg.

I would like to thank you again for all the arrangements you made for us. The trip went quite well without any major troubles.We enjoyed the trip through Vietnam, experienced many unforgettable memories.

The itinerary was very good, accommodations were good, except for one night at the Hotel Serenade (We appreciate very much your extremely prompt action).Location of hotels was very convenient.

We were satisfied with the guides and the drivers. Guides were friendly, helpful and had a good knowledge of Vietnam history, culture, ….

Drivers gave us a very safe drive through your country with busy traffic.

We enjoyed the cruise in Halong Bay.

We love Vietnamese food, even at breakfast.

Thanks for your great assistance.

If we have friends who wish to visit Vietnam, we’ll give them your details.

Dear Trinh,

We returned safely to Luxembourg.
Thank you very much for your good arrangements in Myanmar, very interesting country to discover. We had a quite busy itinerary, but we visited so many interesting places; it was worth to get up early in the morning. They gave us an efficient service; our guides were all very pleasant persons, with a lot of knowlegde; All the drivers gave us a very safe drive.

Hotel in Yangon was very good as well in Mandalay (despite this hotel was located out of the city center) Hotel in Bagan was also nice. Hotel in Pindaya and on Inle Lake were less comfortable, but still it was a very interesting experience. Hot air balloon is a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend the new Golden Eagle company for their great service.

Our pilot was from Zurich and he shared with us his real passion for flying through the air with an hot air balloon. We were only 5 passengers on board. It was just great. The 2 other balloon companies have many more balloons in the air and the capacity of each balloon is much bigger (to 20 passengers / balloon). All local flights were on time, luggages were never lost, despite they were handled manually by airport employees (quite impressive to see in which conditions those employees are working).

We brought many good memories from Myanmar.

Again, many thanks for everything.

hank you and your team for organising a wonderful 4 week trip for us. Our trip was characterised by excellent organisation, flexibility and wonderful guides and drivers and of course a wonderful country with lovely people.

We didn’t have much thinking to do as all was done for us in a very easy and “no worries” way. When we had to change our arrangements once this was handled with much professionalism and ease turning a potential issue in a demonstration of excellence. In this regard our Hanoi (and surroundings) guide Long was quite impressive. Not only did he demonstrate the highest level of professionalism and organisational skills he was just very much on the ball. In addition to providing details about the past he was able to paint a picture of today and the future of Vietnam which made us sit back and take it all in and say “yes that makes sense”. He is definitely an asset for your company and for Vietnam!

There is one item I would like you to improve and that is the security of payment and delivery of the goods or guarantee of your performance. Of course all went well for us but I suggest you make it more clear to potential customers that their payment for a trip is secure. There was not much which gave me a warm feeling in this regard when I booked. If under Vietnamese law there are some guarantees that should be mentioned. Also if your company has some guarantees that payment will result in implementation of the trip this should also be mentioned under something like “payment security” or “no risk with your payment”.

Now with more and more people booking on line their main concern is that the party on the other side will perform and that their money doesn’t end up in a black hole.

Again thank you very much for a wonderful trip and we will certainly use you in the future and recommend you to others.

    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 Insight Asia Travel

    Headquartered in Vietnam, Insight Asia Travel is a premier luxury tour operator, offering trips through Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    They operate personalized luxury tours that explore the culture and history of a specific part of southeast Asia. Group sizes are small (10 max) or private groups, and you have a lot of free time. Having such a strong regional focus means that their travel experts know the countries inside and out and each itinerary they offer is carefully planned out.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Their tours are best suited to families, multi gen groups, and older travelers looking for an easy paced trip and authentic cultural experiences. Trips tend to be in luxury range. They also allow for a good balance of free time for their clients, so if you’re interested in having time to explore on your own this is built into their culture as a company.

    Where Do The Operate?

    Their tours go to Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, or a combination if you’re traveling multi-country.

    Why Travel With Them?

    For a slow paced, luxury small group tour experience. This is a great way to see Southeast Asia with knowledgeable local guides in a comfortable and relaxed way. Their tours focus on special interest, culture,history, and authentic travel. You will find less focus on active adventure activities, but some of their tours do offer more of an outdoors focus, which is great for families.
