New Guided Family Tours from Trafalgar Make Europe & Asia Affordable

After 60 years, Trafalgar Tours has become expert at leading touring vacations that include, as they say, "First Class hotel accommodations, luxury transportation by motor coach, rail or cruise ship, outstanding cuisine, daily sightseeing and optional excursions with expert local guides, and the personal concierge services of the most professional and knowledgeable Tour Directors in the travel industry."

For the coming 2010-2011 they have put that expertise at the service of families with special new programs to destinations in Europe, Britain, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South America and China.  With the release of the new 2011 brochures, Trafalgar is also offering an airfare deal that can't be beat: book and pay in full by December 30, 2010 (maybe a family Christmas or Channukah present?) on 2011 Europe departures and the second traveler flies for $299.  Here are three of our picks for families with their descriptions:

Family Experiences -
Trafalgar has done all the research and planning, so you can simply choose from an amazing collection of family vacations to Britain, Europe, the Americas and South Africa. You will experience a myriad of memorable destinations, magical countries and enchanting cities, all featuring specially designed activities for families of all ages. Travel with other families and make new friends. Each destination is rich in vibrant culture, history and tradition and Trafalgar guides will bring it all to life.

At Leisure -
Traveling with teens who may become resentful of all the organized activities and tour bus time? "At Leisure"" is an innovative new style of vacation that combines the very best of expertly-planned, guided vacations with the freedom and flexibility of independent travel. Highlights include average stays of 2-3 nights in each destination (up to 6 nights in some!), late starts (no earlier than 9am) on travel days, and more in-depth sightseeing. If you have always dreamed of taking a journey of discovery through Europe but don't have the time to plan and arrange it all, At Leisure vacations are your perfect solution.

CostSaver -
Trafalgar is also offering a CostSaver vacation with less frills and optional tours, but it does not mean you have to forego quality. Each vacation is carefully designed to include plenty of free time to explore each destination, while still having Trafalgar's professional and experienced Tour Directors and Drivers with you throughout your journey. You'll enjoy the best of all worlds -- all the advantages of an expertly-planned, guided vacation and the freedom to join excursions (at great rates) or explore on your own, and at a price that's considerably less than you'd pay if traveling on your own.

Group tours are not for every family, but they can be a very economical and secure way to sample new destinations and foreign cultures that you might not want to tackle alone with young children. They're especially well suited to single parents and grandparents who want to travel with their grandchildren, without the parental layer in between. 

In our experience, the group dynamic also means you have a "village" traveling with you to help out with the kids, and lots of elders who want them to have a good time. Trafalgar's reputation is stellar, so check them out.
