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.

First time with SDT on stay put tour to Kinetta Beach Resort and Spa in Kinetta, Greece.
SDT make every effort to make the trip as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. Having a Tour Manager makes everything so much easier, especially in a foreign country. Personally, I found that the price of the tour was money well spent....I paid my monies and they did all the work....awesome

Just back from Newfoundland and Labrador this was our first organized bus trip it was fantastic. We will definitely look into more guided trips that Senior Discovery Tours provided. Our tour manger Michael Morton made the extended bus trip adventures, enjoyable and memorable. Barry was the bus driver we felt very safe during our trip with him in the driver seat. We will never forget our trip to Newfoundland and Labrador.

    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 Senior Discovery Tours

    Since 1975, Canadian company, Senior Discovery Tours has operated tours for seniors around the world.

    What Makes Senior Discovery Tours Stand Out?

    Their tours dive into the local life around the world, traveling in comfort and allowing your experience as a senior traveler to be truly exceptional.

    Most of their tours include some level of physical activity (mostly walking), but the pace is designed to be manageable for older travelers.

    A tour manager will accompany you throughout the tour - there to take care of every detail (such as checking in and out of the hotel and managing transportation) so you have nothing to do but enjoy.

    You’ll be visiting classic sites throughout the world, as well as getting an intimate local view through classes and knowledgeable guides.

    Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Senior Discovery Tours?

    Travelers with Senior Discovery Tours are usually 55+, and almost exclusively Canadian. Tours are designed with seniors in mind, and their typical traveler is physically fit, with the ability to walk short to medium distances. They do offer cruises as well, which are a good option for travelers with limited mobility.

    If you are and older traveler interested in meeting like minded travelers, and participating in a fully escorted tour, whether more “on the go” or more relaxed staying in one place, you can probably find something with Senior Discovery Tours.

    Top Destinations

    They have tours all over the world including Antarctica and the Middle East.

    Senior Discovery Tours Travel Style

    Senior Discovery Tours travel style is “slow” - multi destination tours typically include at least two days in each spot - rather than rushing through. They also provide “stay put holidays” for those travelers who prefer an even longer amount of time to explore deeper, with a centrally located home base - this is helpful for unpacking only once and relaxing into the destination.

    Most meals are included as well on Senior Discovery Tours, so you won’t have to be worried about where to go for the best food options. If you’re the kind of traveler who prefers a lot of free time, Senior Discovery Tours is probably not for you. Free time is included on most itineraries, however in less frequency than you might see on itineraries from other companies.

    Why Choose a Tour with Senior Discovery Tours?

    For an adventurous travel experience in comfort and operated by knowledgeable guides. If you’re a senior traveler looking to explore farther reaching destinations, but intimidated by logistics, this is the perfect choice. You’ll work with a tour planner to make sure you select the perfect trip for your travel style and interests.
