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, March 2018
The family holiday was really great. Travelling in a group with other families made the whole experience so much more enjoyable for the kids. Our guide Mohammed was kind and caring and made all of us feel safe and well looked after even during the more 'Intrepid' aspects of the trip. The walk and night stay in the Atlas mountains was a particular highlight for us all.

Morocco Family Holiday with teenagers, April 2018
Short itinary but quite fullfilling physically and culturally. Be ready for exercising your thights horse riding on the beach and dunes followed the next day by many hours of cycling in the stunning mountains of the Atlas and also hiking there the next day. The Hamman will give you the real experience of a scrub and massage! An unforgettable taste of Tajine in Marrakech, on y va!

Great family trip suitable even for grandparents! Children and adults all got on well together like a family - Hany played with children at cards, pool and swimming and gave us plenty of information on all subjects and gave us great care too. Please consider Eygpt for your holiday.
