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, August 2018
Our tour guide, Mustapha, and his crew were excellent throughout the trip, they went the extra mile to make sure that we are all comfortable and safe. Mustapha even arranged a birthday cake to celebrate our 13-year-old son's birthday as a surprise. Highlights of the trip included the homestay in the Berber Guesthouse, the magnificent vistas of the High Atlas mountains, relaxing and beautiful Essaouira, good walking tour of the Medina in Marrakech provided by a very knowledgeable local guide.

That was the trip of my life for my children and I. Everything was there for having great time: wonderful landscapes, received by friendly people and great planning day.

Northern India Family Holiday , August 2018
Great adventure for both parents and kids. As you will be mostly living out of your suitcase, pack as light as possible. Enjoy every thing that is thrown at you and don't engage with local trades that the tour guide advises you not to as they will try to rip you off. Saying that, you will have plenty of good opportunities to engage, haggle and shop.
