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.

A glorious trip in a beautiful place led by warm, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible people with a love of life, a sense of humour and a desire to please. I've been lots of places and guided by lots of people. None better anywhere than Caspin.

Beyond the tourist experience in Tuscany, Italy!

My mother and I travelled to beautiful Tuscany, Italy in Nov. 2016 to celebrate my 40th birthday.
I was looking for an opportunity to learn what it FEELS like to live in Italy, rather than just see the sights (which ARE wonderful and amazing!). We booked the cooking/food tour with Caspin Journeys and I could not have been more pleased with my experience.
We began each day of our Tuscan adventure in the beautiful Nobile guest house relaxing with great coffee and delicate pastries from a local bakery. Each day we were guided by either Pino or Antonio & Simona to new towns to view the architecture, hear the stories of old, and learn about the treasured foods and wines. We stopped for Cappuccino (only before noon!) and espresso in the afternoon. We dined in wonderful restaurants filled with the local people, trying something new every time.
We would have a small respite upon coming home to the Nobile guest house. When Luca (our Master Chef) arrived, we could either enjoy watching him at work or dive right in to learn how to prepare some of Tuscany’s finest foods. These evenings were so fun while cooking, feasting, drinking great wine, and enjoying the company of the Nobile family.
For the week I spent in Italy, I felt well-guided, indulged, enlightened, and most importantly welcomed by this great Italian family … it was a trip my mother and I will never forget!

I thought they did a terrific job in accommodating us and ensuring we had a good time! I would like to take another trip with them. I even feel confident that if I asked them to design a trip different from the current trips they do.....would be excellent too! They are a lovely couple and I always felt very safe traveling with them.

      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 Caspin

      Founded in 1992, Caspin Journeys has a unique spin on travel, offering immersive and comfortable walking tours in England, Spain, and Italy.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      They design their tours to be relaxing yet energizing as you walk among historic lands, learning about the culture and background of classic regions of Europe. Tours are scheduled during the peak weather months for walking and all logistics are taken care of, leaving travelers free to just enjoy. They often focus on culture, history, culinary and wine experiences during their walks.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Their trips are best suited to active travelers who don’t mind walking long distances. Tours are divided into 5 broad Activity Level ratings, beginning with Easiest, Easy-Moderate, Moderate, Moderate-Strenuous, and Strenuous. For every tour they suggest doing at least a little bit of training to prepare and get the most out of your travel experience with them.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Their tours are specifically focused in England, Spain, and Italy. In each country they have multiple options - for example in England they have a Cotswolds walking tour, and a Lake District walking tour. In Italy they visit several specific areas, from the Amalfi Coast to Tuscany and Umbria. And in Spain they offer a walking tour in Picos de Europa and along the legendary Camino de Santiago.

      Why Travel With Them?

      For a unique view from traveling on foot through gorgeous landscapes, and the ease and peace of mind from known all logistics are taken care of. No need to book accommodation or worry about meals. Tours are offered in multiple activity levels, so if you are unsure that a walking tour is right for you - this would be a great place to start off on an easy level - flat surfaces and trails. Their moderate and strenuous tours will be appealing to travelers more experienced on walking tours - between 6 to 8 hours of walking and more challenging and rugged terrain.
