What travelers are saying about their family trips

A Lifetime of Memories for our Family
By first-time traveler Chris H. on 6/28/16
Just returned from our Grand Tour of Europe trip with our family. From the first time we contacted Go Ahead until we stepped on the plane to return home, we were taken care of so well. Our family loved the chance to see so much of the major cities of Europe...
Grand Tour of Europe: London to Rome
Trip of a Lifetime for Mother and Daughter
By 1st-time traveler Amy on 06/25/19
My ten-year-old daughter and I took this trip in Summer 2019. It was our first time to Europe. The pace was perfect for us. Plenty of planned excursions and plenty of time on our own. Our tour director, Lyn, was always available to help and guide us.
London & Paris
Our trip to Greece was amazing!
By 1st-time traveler Andrew
Our tour director was excellent as well as our tour group. We would highly recommend EF Go Ahead tours to our family and friends! We are looking forward to returning Greece to explore new places!
A Week in Greece: Athens, Mykonos & Santorini
Would do it all over again!
By first-time traveler Paulina B. on 8/2/18
This was my first experience with a tour group and I would 100% do it all again. The whole experience from accommodations to excursions were phenomenal. My tour Director Kurt I would recommend to anyone.

3 benefits of family group tours

Traveling with family is a great way to make lasting memories. Here’s why taking your family on a group tour is even better.

You can experience other cultures together
Family tours will bring you closer together in ways you couldn’t imagine. There’s simply no better way to experience other traditions than with the people who created yours.

There’s no stress
When you go on a guided family tour, everything is planned for you—from transportation to activities and even most meals. We do all the work, so you can have all the fun.

It’s not just your family
Family trips with Go Ahead Tours mean your family will be a part of a larger group tour. If you'd rather keep it all in the family, you can also book private family group tours for seven or more.

Frequently asked questions about our family travel packages

What countries are best to travel with family?

While all of our tours are family friendly, Italy, England, France, Greece, and the U.S. National Parks are our most popular destinations for families. Here are a few family friendly vacations that we recommend:

  • London, Paris & Rome: You can see the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, visit Versailles Palace, explore the Colosseum, and drool over delicious pizza and pasta together.
  • The Greek Islands: Relax together in Mykonos, see the stunning coastline in Santorini, and learn all about the characters of Greek mythology like the Minotaur and Zeus.
  • A City Stay tour: Live like locals. Our City Stay experiences offer families the chance to go at their own paces, while having access to a guide whenever they need it.

What are some popular European tours for families?

Any tours highlighted on this page are great tours for families. Some of our best family-friendly tours to Europe include:

Will my family need passports to travel?

If you’re coming from the U.S. and looking at family travel packages to other countries, yes. However, if you’re looking at our family friendly vacations to U.S. National Parks or our Wild Alaska Cruise, you’re in the clear. If you’re traveling from Canada to the U.S, you will need a passport. If you are not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must contact each destination country’s consulate for your specific entry requirements.

What if I only want to travel with my family?

None of our tours are specifically for families, but you are always welcome to bring your family on them! Whether you’re traveling with your cousins, parents, children, or grandchildren, our tours are perfect for families of all kinds. Just know that children must be at least 7 years old to travel with us, and some tours may not have other families on them. Learn more about our private and customized tours.

How do tour excursions work with family travel packages?

Most optional excursions will be available for purchase prior to your tour, online, or over the phone, as well as on tour.
