Departure dates for our Family Small Group Journeys are aimed to fit into worldwide school holiday periods. Booking conditions are generally the same as those for our other Small Group Journeys, but please be aware of the following important terms:

  • The minimum age of participation is five-years old.
  • A family is defined as a minimum of two people – one aged five- to 18-years and one over 18 (in other words no children-only or adult-only bookings). Our normal limit is three children per adult (and vice versa).
  • Triple-share is possible and must be requested at the time of booking. Please be clear whether a double bed plus an extra bed is required or whether three separate beds are preferred.
  • Where separate rooms for children are booked, interconnecting or adjacent rooms will be requested (subject to availability).
  • Child prices only apply to children under the age of 12. Children aged 12- to 17-years must pay the adult price.
  • We do not offer ‘Willing to Share’ or “Deluxe’ options on our Family Small Group Journeys.
