Did you know that over the recent years family touring has become immensely popular? The demand has grown so much that the tour companies have pulled out all of the stops in order to craft tours that cater specifically to family travel. With summer vacation just around the corner, family travel planning can be somewhat of a hassle to coordinate activities for every member of the family. Why not let the experts of amazing vacation experiences do all of the planning, coordinating, and activity arrangements for you? Many popular tour companies have done just that while keeping your family in mind. They understand that both children and adults need a good balance of fun activities as well as some down time for relaxation while they are on vacation.
Here are a few examples of what to expect from some incredible family tour packages.
Last year one of our brilliant agents here at AffordableTours.com went on a trip with Tauck to explore America’s terrains. He came back with an amazing recount of his adventures. Read below to see how his trip went!
Touring America’s Canyonlands with Tauck
Written by Robert Blair, AffordableTours.com Travel Consultant
If you’ve ever wanted to travel to see wondrous landmarks just outside your back door, consider a journey into America’s Canyonlands with Tauck. With lavish accommodations and dining experiences in Phoenix and Las Vegas, plus incredible, iconic natural wonders, this escorted tour is an excellent introduction to the best of the U.S. Southwest.
Our first stop on our 8-day itinerary was Sedona, Arizona, known for its scenic red rock vistas and rich history. This beautiful area has long been an inspiration for artists; we enjoyed its great shopping and restaurants. We ended our first full day of touring at the majestic Grand Canyon. From the top of the North Rim, I enjoyed watching the sun set and seeing the layers of rock change colors before my eyes.
After breakfast overlooking the rim the next morning, our tour group learned how millions of years of weather events created the magical scenery. We boarded our motorcoach to head north through sacred Navajo Indian territory, where our guide explained many Navajo traditions and cultures. By this point, I had taken over 300 photographs! I was able to immediately share my photos online thanks to complimentary wi-fi on our motorcoach.
