Hiked Cape Breton Island for 7 days with 14 people of varying abilities. They made it work to everyone's delight! The food was excellent as well as the accommodations. At lunch break on a longer hike they pulled out hot coffee and tea served in ceramic cups. I have hiked with other companies but found Freewheeling the best value...and the...

We joined Freewheeling for a guided cycling trip around the Cabot trail, plus some sea kayaking and bike rental in our second week, with our 12yr old boys. We could not have been looked after any better. From our initial contact, to advice on what to see and do in Nova Scotia and the trips themselves, everything was superb.

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, 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 Freewheeling Adventures

            Freewheeling Adventure is a travel operator designed for cyclists. Some Freewheeling Adventures are designed for expert cyclists and include long distances, steep terrain, and daily challenges. Others are designed to accommodate relaxed riders, or groups with varying desires. To help you choose which trips are right for you, please take note of the difficulty levels that are available for each trip. If you want greater independence to cover the routes at your own pace, choose a self-guided trip and enjoy the privacy and intimacy of traveling by yourselves. You will have a driver to move your luggage, and can include one “boost” per day when your luggage is moved.

            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.
