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.

Egypt has been on mine and my wives bucket list since we were children, and to be able to experience it the way that we did was a dream. From arriving to the airport, to our flight back home, we were completely taken care of allowing us to take everything in and enjoy. The people, culture, food, landscapes, and history astounded us. We were able to experience once in a lifetime opportunities from hot air balloons over Luxor, to camel rides in Aswan along the Nile River. Ending our trip for the last 4 nights in Hurghada, was a great way to unwind and relax prior to coming home. One thing that stands out, and truly made this trip an incredible experience was our tour guide, Ahmed Wahab. He was truly all knowing; he gave us history lessons, told us what to look for, catered our stops to what we would value, was our photographer, and most of all became our dear friend. If you have the opportunity to visit Egypt, I would highly recommend Wing Buddy and specifically ask for Ahmed Wahab as your tour guide. I promise you, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Ahmed Wahab and Wingbuddy!!!

So much more than expected. Egypt is not to be missed and Wingbuddy gave us all we could hope for at an incredibly reasonable price. Nonstop flights were hassle free. Great hotels with amazing food buffets. Fabulous Nile cruise with fascinating optional and included tours. The pyramids, Sphynx, and Valley of the Kings was just a warm up for the huge variety of temples that we were privileged to explore. I was astounded by the beauty of the temples and the relatively intact condition they were in. I found them more impressive than even the Greek, Turkish or Roman ruins. So much incredible history in this fascinating country. Our guide Ahmed Wahab absolutely made the trip for us. He was everything you could ever want in a guide and more knowledgeable, caring, patient, organized and fun than any you could wish for. Wingbuddy did a great job with the itinerary, giving us 3 distinctly different experiences: the history, pyramids, temples, museums and tombs; the Nile River cruise with amazing scenery and a more relaxed pace; and then total "catch your breath" at the lovely resort on Makadi Bay on the Red Sea. There were coral reefs within feet of the shore and even without snorkelling you could see the different corals and a wide variety of fish. Lovely rooms, warm ocean water, sand beach, lovely pools and fabulous food. Plus, if you chose more activity, a variety of optional tours driving in the sand dunes, diving and snorkelling trips, a Bedouin village tour, or an amazing spa day, all at great prices. This is a trip that will not disappoint.

I just came back from Morocco - organized tour by Wingbuddy and operated by KTI locally. everything went smooth , except my arrival at the airport. I was not picked up on time. No one was there to pick me up and a s a solo traveller ( female) . I was terrified... Finally I reached out to Wingbuddy through wifi in the airport and someone showed up after 1 hour and half , waiting and wondering in the airport! Also, the fact that I was placed with non English speaking people in the tour. Everyone was from Brasil and Italy! My tour guides spoke English and that was not an issue but no one else knew English except one person in my group! Food was great. People were nice. Hotels were good. Service was good. Marrakesh is beautiful!!! Weather was cold when I was there in Jan. My tour guides in Fez and Marrakesh were very nice and helpful. the bus was clean and comfy but no washroom or TV inside. The tour was organized for the most part and no issues. I enjoyed my stay overall.

      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.
