    Added flexibility

    Kids are unpredictable. Despite our best efforts as parents, things don't always go according to plan which is why most family tours allow extra time for activities and offer days without a guide. Tailor-made family trips are also a popular tour option for those wanting to guarantee plenty of time.

      Backyard, but better

      Quiz time! What do you get when you let a teenager create their own itinerary on the USA West Coast? I'm not sure either, but something tells me this tour would pretty much hit the nail on the head. Starting in the hyped-up city of Los Angeles, adding on an afternoon in the Californian surf, stopping at the Grand Canyon for your 'been there, done that' moment, and a stop along the Las Vegas strip (family-friendly style of course!) Wait, we're not done yet! Chuck in a day pass to Universal Studios, a sunset pizza dinner, and plenty of time to chill out in Yosemite and you have an action-packed cocktail of family fun! Even if you're from the US, this small group adventure is like exploring your very own backyard, but better!
