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.
A fantastic way to experience a beautiful and vibrant country with all the logistics taken care of. We revelled in the crazy traffic of Hanoi, the serene beauty of Halong Bay, the fun overnight train trip to Hue, wonderful wonderful Hoi An, vibrant Saigon and the wonders of the Mekong Delta. We learnt so much about Vietnam's history from our wonderful guides and everywhere we went we had the best food ever. Adults and children loved this trip!!
This was a terrific trip for our family including our 12 year old twins. The pace was perfect. We had time on our own as well as lots of planned activities to keep the kids busy. The guides were amazing, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and organized. Intrepid takes care of all the details so we can just enjoy the experiences. They try to show us the real culture. Sometimes it feels a little "staged" but it is so charming and the locals are so glad we are visiting,
