Tour Thomson Family Adventures Company Reviews

Stride Review

Since 1998, Thomson Family Adventures has been designing trips specifically for families, leaning on their extensive background and experience in the travel industry.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Thomson Family Adventures focus exclusively on family travel. They create one-of-a-kind trips with elements of adventure and education with the aim to engage young travelers as well as keep their parents entertained. They know what matters most to families on a trip together and strive to keep all the hassle of trip planning to a minimum. Groups are limited in size to no more than 25 people. This is large enough that children can often find another child of a similar age or interests, while not being so large that it ruins the fun. All aspects of your travel experience are included in the trip cost, including ground transportation and travel insurance.

Who Travels With Them?

Their adventures go to the most engaging, culturally and geographically diverse regions of the world, and are sure to delight parents, grandparents, and children. They have a unique focus on on the kids attending their tours, which makes the travel experience that much more special for young explorers. Their trips are often scheduled and planned to coincide with summer and school breaks. They also have a comprehensive pen pal program to help kids stay in touch with international friends, and do their best to match similar aged kids in travel groups. 

Where Do They Operate?

They operate trips to 19 destinations on 6 continents and use local partners in their destinations to provide an all encompassing view of the country's history and heritage. From trekking across the Moroccan highlands and visiting the great temples of Egypt, to zip-lining through the Costa Rican rainforest, they create unforgettable, lifelong memories for you and your family.

 Why Travel With Them?

They know family travel and offer multiple options in trip type. They also have an interest in supporting local people, cultures, and economies so it becomes a valuable way to travel with children, providing an education in awareness. They mandate that their in-country partners pay a good and fair wage to those who work with them, and support educational and economic initiatives and opportunities.
