As the sun starts to fade and the days get shorter, what better way to extend your family’s summer than with a hot October half term break? If it’s a quick flight you’re after, both Jordan or Egypt are still warm this time of year and the major tourist crowds have now dissipated. If you’re happy to travel a little further afield, Asia in autumn could be the perfect destination. October kicks off the dry season in India and Nepal, bringing with it beautiful, tropical spring flora, fresh from the monsoon rains.

Morocco Family Holiday, December 2017
Morocco is a real experience. If you ARE LOOKING FOR A ADVENTURE WHERE YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND experience a different way of life and culture then this is a journey you will enjoy. Waking up in the Atlas Mountains is a real pleasure and then journeying through to Essouia on the coast and spending time in the Medina is something every traveller will enjoy. A country of contrast and beauty there is something here for everyone.

Northern India Family Holiday , December 2017
This was our first organised tour and we were a bit nervous about whether it would be right for us but the group was small enough to be comfortable in, the kids were all of a simmliar age so had a great time together meaning as adults we had a bit of time to relax and absorb our surroundings and our guide was amazing, energetic, knowledgeable and flexible. We has an awesome trip in a fantastic group of like minded families experiencing India and all it sites, sounds and smells.
