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.

Jordan is a surprisingly big country, full of wonders to see. My cultural immersion is what really defined the trip.

Over the course of 10 days, I traveled up and down the country of Jordan, taking in such sights as Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea, as well as lesser known ones like Dana and Jerash. My guide Abdel was a wonderful host, knowledgeable and well spoken. I would highly recommend traveling to Jordan – it's one of the safest countries I have traveled in, and Bestway Tours helped me see it.

      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 Bestway Tours & Safaris

      Originally founded by three brothers in 1978, Bestway Tours & Safaris has been in the business a long time without losing touch on the ever-evolving tastes and trends that travelers want to experience around the world. With headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia, Bestway Tours & Safaris provides both independent and group tours in most major tourism regions –and several that are more off-the-beaten-path.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Bestway Tours & Safaris is completely flexible to customize an itinerary based on the exact travel desires and needs of each person on the trip. Whether you’re looking for a fully-guided experience or one where the arrangements are pre-set but you call the shots, they can provide.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Bestway Tours & Safaris targets travelers who are looking for a luxurious experience but expect to immerse themselves in each destination on the itinerary.

Instead, travelers from any age can find unique tour options, local accommodation, and flexible planning tools to help make their dream itinerary a reality.

      Where Do They Operate?

      While they offer tours across the globe, the primary tour markets for Bestway Tours & Safaris are Asia, Africa, Middle East & North Africa, and Europe. They have particular strengths in itineraries for North Africa, the Middle East, India, and Indochina, due to close relationships with partner providers on the ground in these areas. Some of their most popular destinations include Jordan, South India, and Indonesia.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Bestway Tours & Safaris has a global network of partners that help cover all the essentials – and many luxuries – for a trip to almost any corner of the globe. Their custom itineraries option allow travelers to combine tours and experiences in unique ways that might not otherwise be an option with group tour providers, and don’t come at an exorbitant premium.
