Jordan Family Adventure (DWFA)
The worst part of resort vacations? Trying to find a spot to lay out your blanket on a crowded beach. Solution: Visit Jordan instead! The beach never ends here (okay, technically it’s the Arabian Desert, but still…), and there’s way more to do here besides laying about and catching rays. Grab the kids and gape at the ancient rock-cut city of Petra one day, hike magnificent Wadi Rum the next, then snorkel the coral reefs of Aqaba and float in the Dead Sea a few days later. Good luck doing all that at an all-inclusive!
Highlights: Arrive at the awe-inspiring sight of Petra, camp out under the stars in Wadi Rum, observe many coloured fish while snorkelling in the Red Sea, float in the salty Dead Sea
Egypt Family Adventure (DPFC)
History class is way more interesting once you’ve stood where it all happened. Treat your kids to an unforgettable journey back to the age of the pharaohs on this incredible ten-day tour of Egypt’s ancient wonders. It begins with the iconic monuments and pyramids around Cairo, Abu Simbel and a cruise down the Nile. Next, it’s three full days in Luxor for temple visits, Karnak and a camel ride. Then, it’s off to the coast of the Red Sea for three days of well-earned downtime before heading home. Ancient history should always be this hands-on.
Highlights: Gazing in awe at mummies in the ancient pyramids, snorkelling among brightly coloured fish in the Red Sea, riding a camel out in the desert
Morocco Family Adventure (DCFF)

Camel rides and campouts in the desert, kasbahs and Moroccan cuisine, the magic of Marrakech and more await. Don’t forget the sunblock!
