This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Tailor made family holidays
What are the main benefits?
A tailor-made holiday is a unique experience designed to match exactly what you’d like to do. For the past 20 years, we’ve specialised in family adventures – so we’re perfectly placed to create a bespoke trip with mum, dad, kids, and maybe even grandparents, in mind. Our dedicated team of specialists has young families, and they’ve travelled with kids in tow – so they know what it’s like and what you’ll need to make your trip flow.
How much does it cost?
A tailor-made family trip doesn’t have to break the bank. We can help you choose the mode of transport, style of accommodation and activities in your itinerary that will perfectly match your budget. Over the years we’ve built our supplier relationships to enable us to get the best possible price for your trip, and gathered a lot of tips and tricks to create a perfectly-balanced journey. Our aim is to deliver authentic travel experiences every time.
How much support is there?
You’ll be accompanied by one of our specially-trained tour leaders during your holiday, who’s there to find that family-friendly restaurant, make the jungle come alive or show you the hidden tunnels at the temple. You’ll be met at the airport on arrival and have your leader’s and our UK office’s full support during your trip, whatever you choose to do.
We think a family tailor-made adventure is the perfect way to enjoy the world in safe hands but with your own stamp of individuality.
Responsible tourism: Family holiday to Jordan, tailor made
The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups, just your family and friends, travelling on an itinerary planned with your needs and requirements in mind, by a team of experts in close collaboration with our in-country team of locals who know the area like no others. Throughout the planning process and during the operation of your holiday steps will be taken to ensure negative impacts on the environment and cultures being visited are minimised and positives are maximised.
Like much of the world, Jordan is a country where water is a precious commodity and you will be encouraged throughout your trip to conserve your water use, from not running taps when unnecessary, to the bottled water you use throughout your holiday. We encourage all our travellers to use refillable water bottles rather than purchasing regular supplies of bottled water. In addition to the water in bottles, the production of a 1 litre plastic bottle takes 2 litres of water and 200ml of oil. Once discarded a large proportion of these end up in limited landfill or discarded in waterways and natural environments and we want to discourage their use. There are various water purification options you can use, alternatively, buy a large bottle and decant into smaller ones carried by the group.
You’ll visit the protected UNESCO deserts of Wadi Rum, where our entrance fee goes towards protecting and conserving this special environment for future generations. For those choosing to snorkel in the Red Sea in Aqaba you’ll be given in instruction on how best to protect the fragile marine environment whilst exploring the stunning coral reefs.
This trip will also work to offset the biggest environmental impact of your holiday, your carbon footprint. We offset the carbon use of all our tours and on this trip that equates to 138kg per person, per departure.
We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment.
Travelling through Jordan is a fantastic opportunity to introduce your family to a culture which may be very different from that which they are used to. Your group leader and driver will both be Jordanian and be keen to share their experiences and answer any questions you may have. It helps give travellers (especially the children) a great insight into life in Jordan as well as providing regular employment with our team ‘on the ground’, all of whom are also locals.
We use local suppliers where ever possible. You’ll enjoy traditional Bedouin hospitality from our local friends in Wadi Rum and can also arrange for you to dine with a local family in Amman. Our visits not only financially benefit the families involved, but also underline the importance of keeping traditions alive, both as a way of life and as a livelihood.
You’ll explore Petra in the company of a local guide and stay in smaller, locally owned hotels. Your group will tend to eat in friendly, small restaurants, favouring traditional dining and supporting local enterprise over larger chains. Your guides will be able to direct you to the best independent places to purchase souvenirs, supporting local artisans and tradespeople All of these small actions ensure that the financial benefits of your visit goes directly where it is needed most, into the local economies and supporting the regions which your family are exploring.
