Time to spend together is every family's most precious resource. Our Travel Partner's Family Luxury Small Group Journeys and Connections Family Journeys are designed to let you make the most of every minute. Created by their experts specifically for families, each journey is filled with enriching activities, child-friendly hotels and a range of exciting destinations to choose from.

Exclusive, Complimentary Custom Photo Album

Our Travel Partner's are partnering with MILK, creators of immaculately designed custom photo albums featuring high-quality matte paper and fine linen covers, to capture the unforgettable images from your adventure. Assemble a one-of-a-kind gift that will help you to happily remember your trip for years to come.

Unmatched Local Presence

Our Travel Partner's 52 worldwide offices — five in Europe alone — work tirelessly to design unforgettable family journeys backed by the world’s most robust support network. Unlike their competitors, they train and manage their own full-time local staff and orchestrate every detail, from the seamless flow of their itinerary to the prompt attention paid to an unanticipated request.

Days of Discovery

Every itinerary includes daily Family Discoveries, a chance for kids to connect to their destination by interacting directly with nature, culture and local children. Family guests also have fun with a little local language instruction and dining experiences that encourage even the pickiest eaters to enjoy the local fare.

Discover Europe on a Connections Boutique Group Journey

If Europe is high on your list, look to our newly reimagined Connections Boutique Group Journeys, which deliver authentic, immersive family adventures in iconic cities. These experiential journeys feature stays in welcoming, intimate boutique hotels set in fascinating neighborhoods as well as authentic local interactions for an exciting cultural immersion.

Explore the Extraordinary on a Luxury Small Group Journey

Our Luxury Small Group Journeys whisk your family to some of the world’s most exotic destinations in luxury style. Led by a Resident Tour Director, with an intimate group of no more than 18 fellow guests, stay in luxury, five-star accommodations with perks like a Travelling Bell Boy® to transfer your luggage and Traveller’s Valet®, complimentary laundry service.

A New Best Friend: Your Resident Tour Director

Our Resident Tour Directors are year-round residents boasting cultural insight that only comes from being locals themselves. Overseeing your entire journey, they accompany you every day, sharing a beyond-the-guidebook excitement for daily life. The result is a journey that reveals the real spirit of a place and connects your family to its people in a way you’ll never forget.

Safety You Can Trust

Your family’s well-being and safety is always our first priority. Our network of local offices and long-established relationships in every region in which we operate allow us to keep our finger on the pulse of local dynamics and to manage your safety and security. Should a situation arise, our Travel Partner has resources at the ready to allow you to safely continue on your journey.

All Family Journeys Include
