Family Experiences

Family holidays with a difference

Tailor-made for families wanting to share time together, our Family Experiences are guided holidays with a difference.

Every element is created for multi-generational families. Of course you get family hotels and child-friendly dining. And we’ve taken away all the hassle so you can just enjoy your time together. But we’ve also created a unique collection of exclusive family holiday experiences – to suit everyone from children to grandparents.

It's insider moments like joining gladiator school and making pizzas together in Rome; meeting Costa Rica's sea turtle experts in Tortuguero National Park; and learning how to hula and make flower lei in on holiday in Hawaii, which bring families together and create lifelong memories.

Mixing entertainment and education, we have Family Experience holidays in Europe, USA, Canada, South America and South Africa.

Gladiators, Gondolas and Gold

"Absolutely the best family trip we have taken! Our travel director, Lidia was wonderful, knowledgeable and very friendly with the kids! The hotels had perfect accommodations kids loved the pools in Rome & Venice, breakfast in each hotel was great. All the activities were enjoyable, from the pizza making, gladiator school, mask making to the gondola rides! We were not disappointed with any part of the trip! My children, 14 & 12, loved it too!! We met some wonderful families and made some new friends for life! We will use Traflagar again when we book our next trip and hopefully get Lidia as our travel director!!" - Patti, June 2013
