The free and easy Nica New Years trip was a total blast! All the included parties were so fun. It was the best New Years I've ever had and I am already planning my trip back to do it all over again next year in beautiful Nicaragua!

Another amazing free and easy trip under my belt, Josh and Ben made Nicaragua (an already amazing place) even more amazing. Any old travel company can take you to a country but at the end can you really say you feel like you have a new family? I doubt it. Free and Easy definitely has the most amazing people running tours. Never a dull moment with these beauties. Cannot wait for my next trip!! Peru 2017! whoop!

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.

    About Free & Easy Traveler

    They provide budget friendly and customizable epic travel experiences for groups of friends and young single travelers.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Backpacker style trips that are budget friendly, adventurous, and easy to customize. The majority of their tours are 20 days, with the minimum length at 10 and the maximum at 40. This is experiential travel at its most extensive. Their philosophy is based on providing fun new experiences, a community where you can meet and make new friends, and encouraging independent exploration.

    Who Travels With Them?

    They cater to young travelers, friend groups, and solos. This might not be the best company for couples. A major focus for them is being budget conscious so they do all they can to keep costs reasonable. If you don’t think you have the money to travel, they might be a good place to look.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They offer trips in Southeast Asia, The Mediterranean, The Americas, and Africa. Trips are typically around 20 days

    Why Travel With Them?

    Flexible itineraries and adventurous spirit. They are a great company to travel with for making new friends and meeting like minded travelers. Every trip has a unique Facebook group created where you can get to know everyone before traveling. And as much or as little that you want to customize your trip and strike out on your own is up to you. You’ll meet multiple kinds of traveler, usually around the same age and the odds are slim that you won’t make a ton of friends during your travel!

    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.
