It’s impossible not to be impressed by the most famous Maya temple site in all of Mexico; even your tricky teens will be enchanted. Marvel at Kukulkan, standing high over the ruins, and then explore a nearby Maya ‘ball court’ with its detailed stone carvings.
If your kids are husky-mad, they’ll love dog sledding through the snow. Enjoy greeting your husky team, who have travelled from the Lower Tatra to meet you, learn how to handle the sled and sip on hot drinks by the fire to warm up after an amazing day.
Prepare for your family to be charmed by the capital of Cuba. From its spacious plazas and glorious colonial Spanish architecture, to its iconic American automobiles and Che Guevara-branded buildings. It’s a city packed with culture, colour and cuisine.
Cambodia was a fabulous destination. Amazing things to see, great shopping and incredibly friendly. This is the perfect destination for children. Ancient temples, henna tattoos, fish nibble pedicures, tuk tuks and beautiful people. Perfect.
This trip was incredible, we couln't have seen as much of Vietnam if we had planned it ourself. It was great value for money, so much fun and full of once in a life time experiences. We felt safe and looked after the whole time. Thnaks Intrepid.
A great trip with a friendly helpful leader - Vietnam can be tricky to navigate but this tour managed to cover lots of space in a fun, entertaining way. Somewhat hectic in parts, this trip is not for those who want to relax, but for those who want to experience the local customs and culture of the diverse Vietnamese people!
