Just returned from an amazing trip to the Pantanal in Brazil. The stay at Rita's Baia das Pedras ranch was the best. Rita herself is a wonderful lady who has opened her family ranch to conservation work. Because of her, I was able to see giant armadillos, tapirs, caymans, capybara and loads of birds in their natural habitat. Our guide through the ranch lands, Luis, was a wealth of knowledge and so enthusiastic about sharing his love for the animals were were seeing. He made the trip even more memorable. From our second lodge, we had an expert boat driver and guide who gave us personal encounters with jaguars, giant river otters, hyacinth macaws and more. Such a treat to be able to spend the time we wanted watching these incredible animals and not be rushed to move on to the next thing.

Touring around the Galapagos with Ecotours was more than I had ever imagined it would be! Everyday was packed with outings for the guests which took the stress away from trying to plan excursions yourself. From snorkeling almost everyday (and several times a day) to hiking around the islands I was able to see so much of the wildlife in the Galapagos. The staff on the cruise were wonderful and helped made the trip that much more memorable. Thanks Ecotours for setting everything up for a stress free trip of a lifetime!

I'm a veterinary student at Washington State University that experienced the cruise through the Galápagos Islands in June of 2018. It wasn't until seeing the Galápagos Islands with my toes literally buried in the sand of the beautiful beaches that I finally realized how magnificent a place it really is. The experience, from learning about the wildlife to the excellent service on the yacht was absolutely phenomenal. Between establishing great friendships with other adventures onboard and getting to know the friendly, helpful, and knowledgable staff, the people involved are equally as enjoyable as the wildlife of the islands. From someone who had never seen an ocean before the cruise, the snorkeling & kayaking unveiled an incredible new world filled with an array of creatures from vibrant colored fish to playful sea lions. This experience is truly too outstanding to fully convey in words.

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.

      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.
