Ashley Toft, Managing Director of Explore commented, “We know how integral holidays are to families – with everyone’s busy work and school schedules, we understand that spending quality time together on holiday is more important than ever. It’s for this reason that we’ve worked closely with our suppliers to make our tours better value than ever. We have added many more inclusions into our tours, including quirky new additions such as Thai boxing lessons, skateboarding lessons with local children in South Africa and pizza making classes. Additionally, we have guaranteed departures on all family tours, meaning once your booking is confirmed, your tour won’t be cancelled by us for any reason other than force majeure”.
He continued, “To add more flexibility for families, we’ve also added Private Journeys to selected family tours including The Lost City of Petra and Discover Vietnam. These tours follow the same itineraries but can be undertaken on a private basis on any departure date. Perfect for families whose schedules may not match up with our small group departure dates, and a great way, especially for larger family groups or two or more families to travel together. By offering holidays for all budgets and requirements, we’re positive our newest collection includes something for every family.”
