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.

I started off my week in Quito with a free walking tour offered by the company Latin Adventures. The meeting point was in the Historic center of the city and easy to find.
I proceeded to do a couple day trips with Latin Adventures as well to the Volcano Cotopaxi and Laguna Quilotoa.

I really appreciated how well-organized this tour agency was, everything was always punctual and consistent with the agenda.
Eventually, I even went on the Amazon jungle tour that this agency offers.
I can't recommend Latin Adventures enough to other travelers of all lifestyles and ages.
Gracias

Antisana Volcano 1 day tour.
We had a wonderfull day with our eminent guide Francisco and a beautifull hike on one of the good trails by the lake (lagoon). Magnificent scenery, wildlife animals and birds. We also had a delicous lunch with 4 courses at a small restaurant in the neighbourhood of the national park. We did not see all the tops of the volcanos, but we still had a perfect day. Thanks a lot.

After trying many atravel agencies in Quito, let me tell you that Latin Adventures is the best one so far. I booked the Cotopaxi Tour with them and I enjoyed every second. The guide was polite and fun.. and most important he was really patient and stimulating during the hike! That day it was really cold but view breathtaking. Really good thing was to have lunch in a really nice and warm place.
Would reccomend everyone to hike the Cotopaxi and to do it with this agency!

      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.
