Why take this tour?

Family-friendly itinerary – Our itinerary is thoughtfully designed to be engaging for all ages, so no need to worry about how to keep kids of multiple ages engaged. Your kids will be too busy and having too much fun to have time to drive each other crazy – and that’s a win-win for everyone!

Balance of free time and group time – We want you to go home refreshed and relaxed, so with a few hours of free time built into each day’s schedule, your family will have plenty of time to explore on your own, shop, eat, lay by the pool, or just take a nap without missing anything!

Small group sizes – Our group sizes are at least 8 people with a maximum of 15 people. The average group size is 12 guests. These small groups allow us flexibility and the ability to see and do things bigger groups can’t. Plus, it’s easier to make new friends in a smaller group!

All-inclusive pricing – When we say all-inclusive, we mean it. From your arrival to departure, the only added expense will be your souvenirs to remember your trip by. All tour pricing is clearly stated so you can see exactly what is included (spoiler alert: even a parent's night out is covered!).
