Family Adventure Holiday Experiences from Cathy, Mark and Tom

The Kingsbury family, Cathy, Mark and Tom are one of our most prolifent family explorers. They have been all over the world and Tom took his first trip with us aged just 6. We decided to quiz them on their adventurous spirit.

Insider's view: An Indian Summer

My name is Sheikh Junaid and I lead some of The Adventure Company's India trips.

Rosie’s blog – Around the Bay of Naples

Let’s start with Naples itself. The third biggest city in Italy, Naples is a long way from the chocolate box that is Florence  - or the ‘living museum’ of Venice. Naples is chaotic, contemporary and lively. It takes you several moments before you remember that this was the original ‘New City’ (Neo polis) as christened by the Greeks. There is of course magnificent art and culture to be found in Naples. On one of our free mornings, I took a taxi (13 Euros)  to the spectacular Capodimonte museum, high above the city.

The things I liked about Italy were these.

Firstly, going up Vesuvius. This was quite scary because you felt like you could just topple off the edge (but nobody did). It was also quite cold, with lots of clouds around, so I would advise you to bring a jumper or fleece! Pompeii was another Awesome adventure. I never knew the Romans cooked fast food out on the streets in stone pots, for example. It was sad to see people who had died in the volcano, lying down looking just like us.

We stayed in three places on this trip, but in Italy, every place is so different. First we went to Naples, which was very busy and seemed quite scary at times but it was exciting. Our guide Davide paid a lot of attention to us. He was more than a guide really. He came with us to every meal and played football with us and never seemed to get annoyed, even when we teased him!

Family Summer Holidays in Andorra

I was under the impression that Andorra - that tiny principality between France and Spain - was great for skiing, but not much else. How wrong I was. Like me, many people hold the false belief that everything in this beautiful part of Europe closes down as soon as the snow melts, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Andorra has plenty to offer people who are looking for the ultimate summer activity holiday, much to my delight.

Wow....

We've just returned from a family holiday to Morocco - Mohamid and Sulimaine we fab hosts and sensitive to our family's needs.  Suiimaine ensured the family were aware of the days adventures/ itinerary - plenty to occupy both adults and children.  During the longer days travelling the children were occupied on the coach and stops were appropriate to our needs coffee and toilets -v- photo opportunities in the snow!  His knowledge and enthusiasm for his country shone through!

Diverse Morocco is the ideal family holiday destination

Selecting a family holiday can be a tricky business if you have children who are still toddling around. As a keen explorer, I had always wanted to visit Morocco in order to scale the picturesque Atlas Mountains but I thought my chances were gone once I started to raise a young family. However, I managed to find a trip that not only gave us the opportunity to head to the fascinating north African country together, but also included a number of child-friendly excursions that would enable us to see various different parts of the nation.

Winter Family Holiday in Andorra, one of Europe's Best Kept Secrets

Tucked away in between France and Spain, the tiny principality of Andorra must surely be one of Europe's best kept secrets. The fact the country doesn't even have its own airport could mean the fascinating skiing destination often flies under the radar of less experienced winter sports enthusiasts. However, for those who have sampled the pistes of numerous different locations around the world, Andorra is a stand-out resort.
