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

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.

Nicely arranged tour with good choice of Hotel. The guide was a little old but very sweet with great manners. In Japan if you don't speak or understand Japanese then you will be feeling helpless at times so a tour company is a must if you want to explore multiple cities.

I took my 12 year old daughter to Thailand for spring break and we had a fantastic time! Our guides Poy and Oh were amazing. There was the right balance of organized tours, shopping time and free time to explore. Highly recommend the Thailand trip and Affordable World.

I found Affordable World on Groupons and purchased vouchers. The whole process just felt way to easy. Everything was done online. I was very nervous. Can I say the trip was amazing! We did the Thailand Delight tour. Our tour guide Sharky was so much fun. He provided us with alot of history about Thailand and also made us feel safe in a foreign land. Everything was well organized. I did take an online course to try and learn alittle of the language that was helpful. Thai people are very kind and friendly but most do not speak english. I was suprised that most of the hotel staff did not speak or understand English. Learn how to say toliet paper! Its not always available and even in the hotels its limited. We had a blast. Thank you Affordable World for making my birthday so memoriable and fun!

      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.
