Small group family holiday

This is a 'small group family adventure' - typically you will join several other families travelling in a group of up to 20 people (3-5 families). The trips are great value, often with lots of included activities or sightseeing and some meals (dependent on the itinerary). They are created by people with families, for people with families, and are a great way for you and your children to meet new people and discover the world together! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of time to yourselves.

On these Family Adventures, families of two will be roomed in a twin room, parties of three will be roomed in a triple room, fours will be roomed in two twins and families of five will have a triple and a twin, etc. This operator tends to use small, locally owned properties throughout their trips and accommodation will be en suite unless specified otherwise. It will be clean, functional, well located for your adventures and most importantly, family friendly. There will be swimming opportunities nearby where ever possible, either in pools or the sea. Some trips contain more adventurous overnights such as jungle stays, camping in the desert, sleeping on deck of traditional style boats or a night in a local homestay – please be aware that facilities will be basic on these occasions if your trip contains these aspects. All accommodation is named prior to travel.

Please check with the operator to confirm the minimum age for this trip.

Responsible tourism: Family teenager holiday in Peru

On this trip: We stay in locally owned hotels and camps and eat in local restaurants. We travel in small groups and we use a local Peruvian agent, local drivers and a Local Group Leader. This fulfils part of our commitment to make a positive contribution to the local economy and is the best way of ensuring that our money reaches as many people as possible. Local overseas leaders offer a great way to find out more about the local culture, speak the language, understand the day-to-day life around them and help to ‘open doors’ to a fuller experience.

Our agent in Peru operates in a responsible manner and is committed to preserving the area in which they work. For every client travelling on any of our trips to Peru we donate £5 to Plan International, a humanitarian charity that helps children in developing countries to realise their full potential. Plan will use the donations to help fund their project to support under-privileged children in Lima. We will also match any donation made to Plan International by clients travelling with us to Peru (up to a maximum of £10 per person).Whilst in Chinchero we include a village homestay, putting money and mutual understanding into rural Peru.

Responsible code: Being Responsible is at the heart of everything our company does - full details of our code can be found on our website. The local supplier for this trip will promote our responsible travel code throughout your adventure. You will also receive specific information on this trip’s responsibility in your trip notes.

Helping to minimise negative impact: All of our customers are invited to offset their international flight emissions. Contributions go to the Blue Ventures Carbon Offset program, a non-profit organisation which provides solar stoves for subsistence communities in Madagascar, benefiting the people and protecting the environment. We also contribute £2 per person towards offsetting of your in-country travel. We fully offset all emissions from our staff travel and run an energy efficient office.

Giving something back: We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. You as a customer choose where these funds are used from a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation.

Partnerships: As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practises throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation. We partner with many small grassroots projects throughout the destinations that we visit - they all share our responsible vision.

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed on 11 Aug 2015 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The camping, food and walking through the Sun Gate and seeing Machu Piccu are a few of my many highlights. Our guide, Reni was terrific and the family we travelled with were super. The holiday gradually gears you up for the big trek, you acclimatise in Cusco before exploring the Sacred Valley and attempting the mountain bike ride.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The accommodation is on the whole fairly basic, with one or two quirky gems, but we weren't expecting the hotel in Agua Calientes to be so dire. As we walked to the end of the railway track after spending three nights camping and desperate for a shower, it was a real let down. It was noisy and uncomfortable with freezing water - but the staff were really helpful.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

There is a benefit to the locals by following the advice of the holiday company and our guide we tipped directly and ate in restaurants that supported their charitable work. The impact to the environment was minimal, we used our own water bottles, took all litter back and followed the rules in order to protect the historical sites.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was a fab holiday, non-stop adventure.
