Peta has been a great travel advisor for me. This is the third trip I have done through her and I will do a more. Peta has her contacts in the areas that I travel and puts together a trip very specific to my goals.
My family adventure travel with Custom Travel Adventures have taken me to Egypt with kids seeing the Pyramids, a family holiday in Africa, seeing Gorillas in Rwanda, travel in Tanzania to hike up Kilimanjaro ,we also did a safari in Tanzania to see the most amazing wildlife and culture,travel to Ecuador, cruising the Galapagos Islands, visiting indigenous people deep in the jungle and bird watching in Southern Ecuador.
The highlight for this last trip was the remoteness of one of the areas I visited. But I wouldn’t have been able to see and take full advantage of the area without great guides I had. The three legs of my journey had different guides for each area which made for very knowledge guides in those areas.
Cherie Hershman and Mick Ostroff trip report on their vacation to India with Custom Travel Adventures
Thank you so much for an incredible “family adventure tour of a lifetime”. My parents, husband and I traveled for over 3 weeks all over India, and it was amazing. The itinerary you put together for us was perfect, and when it wasn’t the local agent was very accommodating. We were able to experience the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the country on our schedule, with our private guide and driver. One of our favorite moments was a cooking class we took with a local woman who quickly came to see us as her family and began calling my father, “papa” in the most loving way. We felt well taken care of, safe and respected the whole trip.
Family Adventure Trip — Trip Report from Tracy Moran and David Klim, who traveled to Belize with their two boys.
Peta from Custom Travel Adventures was awesome! We knew we were ready to start doing some more adventurous travel, but we were also nervous about our first big trip out of the country with both boys. I needed help and guidance and reassurance that we were making kid friendly and safe choices on where to go, where to stay and what to do. We wanted to explore the jungle and also enjoy some island time while in Belize. Peta provided several options and helped us select an ecolodge that was kid friendly and an awesome, small resort on ambergris caye where we had a huge bungalow with the amenities we wanted but in a quiet and intimate setting. There was a lot of planning that went into our trip, but Peta made it all so much easier and saved me a ton of time.
There are too many hightlights to list! Cave canoeing, night hiking, horseback riding in the jungle and evening inner-tubing down the river that ran through the lodge – we were literally the only ones on the river each time! – the iguana project and Mayan ruins were also amazing. Snorkeling as a family during our time on the island was definitely a highlight. Getting to know the kind, knowledgable and friendly people of Belize made it hard to go home!
Family Adventure Travel to China report from Bonnie and Robbie Cape, who traveled to China with Custom Travel Adventures with their kids of 16,14 and 11yrs.
We were VERY pleased with the service provided by Peta. She planned an exciting and interesting itinerary with events and activities that were of interest to all 5 of us. We had a fabulous family adventure tour; likely our most excellent vacation ever.
Highlights of our trip
Truly, it was all amazing. We loved the cities. We loved the villages. We LOVED the food!
Our favorite part was the 2-day Tiger Leaping Gorge hike. It was spectacular.
We had a meal with a local village family in Lijiang, which was wonderful.
We loved our day in Xian, especially the bike ride on the city walls.
Volunteering with the pandas was fun, and definitely an experience. We wish we had gotten o see the babies, and we know they had babies, but they said we couldn’t see them
Our tour guides were all local to the cities they toured us in, so that was excellent.
