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 Trufflepig

        Trufflepig takes customized guided travel to the next level.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Their name points to their main offering as a company: every experience, hotel, and local activity you encounter on your custom itinerary has been hunted and uncovered by their travel experts. This is the place to come for individualized and personalized customer service, as well as working with someone who gives travel advice based on actual experience.

        Who Travels With Them?

        They are best for couples, families, and small private groups looking for an expertly planned trip, with all logistics taken care of. Their type of traveler enjoys unique experiences not available to just any tourist, meeting locals, and gaining a new insight into the country through guides, history, culture, and classic attractions.

        Where Do They Operate?

        They can arrange trips all over the world. Their “Where We Go” section is not an exhaustive list, but helps you get an idea of each country from their perspective.

        Why Travel With Them?

        If you’re looking for a superbly researched itinerary, with input from you, and the comfort of knowing every experience you have on your tour has already been fully vetted by their travel experts, look no further. All of their recommendations are based on their own experiences and they strive to help you craft the perfect itinerary based on their extensive knowledge of the industry, country, and type of traveler.

        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.
