Although our group holidays tend to reflect the UK school holiday periods, don’t forget that for those families who are not necessarily tied to these dates we offer the Tailor-made option. How about enjoying the delights of South Africa during their summer? Or making the most of Patagonia’s limited tourist season? Or enjoying warm temperatures and clear underwater visibility in the Galapagos? Give our tailor-made specialists a call and see how they can get your year off to a fantastic start.
February half-term break
Jordan and Egypt are the perfect destinations to enjoy in the limited time that half-term offers. It is also ahead of the peak tourist season so sites can be enjoyed in relative peace and before the heat of the summer hits these countries. And short-haul flights from the UK too!
Why not try a real desert adventure with our Saharan Sands tour? Ride camels to our Bedouin desert camp, watch a magical sunset over the dunes and dine under the stars. Plus play at gladiators in the movie set of Ait Benhaddou and bargain like crazy in the souq of Marrkaech. All at a relaxed pace.
Head to the exotic island of Sri Lanka where you can spot elephants on safari, play peekabo with monkeys at our tea plantation campsite, haul in the morning’s catch with the local fishermen and chill out on the beach by the Indian Ocean. Or how about swapping Easter bunnies for orang-utans on our Borneo adventure spending time with these hairy beasts, snorkelling in turquoise waters amongst the sea turtles and camping in the jungle.
Towards the end of May the Mediterranean countries are beautifully warm without being stiflingly hot. So it’s time to get active! Join us in the Pyrenees where you can mountain bike, hike, white water raft and swing through the canopy on zipwires. Or why not pop over to Turkey and enjoy an equally active adventure in the waters of the Turquoise Coast.
For those not confined to school holidays now is the perfect time to visit China. Why not use our Land of the Dragon tour as a sample itinerary and get our Tailor-made specialists to create the perfect Chinese experience for your family.
Make the most of the lengthier holiday period and travel to Latin America. Take the teenagers on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, white-water raft the Urubamba River and mountain bike through the Sacred Valley. Or head to Costa Rica with its explosive volcanoes, canopy walkways, lush rainforest and glorious beaches.
Take your family to THE destination of the moment – Burma. Explore Bagan by pony cart and meet the local children visiting rural villages. As a complete contrast why not join one of our family overland expeditions through Africa travelling on a special overland vehicle camping amongst the incredible wildlife and landscapes. Then your children can really have something to tell when they go back to school next month.
