ExperiencePlus! - Bicycle Tours since 1972

Families on Tour

The more the merrier.

Providing a great family vacation is a special joy for us, since we have been a family-run business since we led our first tour across Italy in 1972.  Families are welcome on all of our tours, though of course you’ll want to choose a tour that is appropriate for all ages and abilities in your family.

More and more families are taking active vacations with their children, their parents, and the whole extended family. Exploring a new country or a new culture together can be a wonderful way to develop and renew family relationships or to celebrate important events like graduations, birthdays and anniversaries.

Many customers have told us that it’s hard to find a better family vacation, especially with teenagers.  Once you are on an ExperiencePlus! tour, you’ll let us handle all the decision-making while you just pedal, explore, eat, sleep…and wake to start again the next day!

No “group” decision making.

How old is old enough?

We find that athletic children over the age of ten do well on our tours, and less athletic children over 13 do well.  We often have single parents who enjoy a tour as a quiet vacation with kids, and we often have three generations of family members join us –Grandma, Grandad, Mom, Dad and kids.

Easier tours are often best for families with young kids.  You can  browse our trips, searching for tours rated 101.

Looking for other families who might be on tour?

If you’re thinking of bringing your family on tour with us, call us to learn if others are already signed up for the tours that interest you.  We’ll be glad to let you know how many are considering the same tours, how many kids may come along, and how old they are.

ExperiencePlus! is for older “kids,” too!

Adult children and parents enjoy the full range of our tours.   These trips are perfect for family celebrations such as:

  • Graduations
  • Retirements
  • Anniversaries
  • Family reunions

From someone who has been there . . .

“Todd, age 12, came to know the world on his first bicycle tour - a 300 mile odyssey across Italy, from Venice to Florence to Pisa. Todd's adventures explain why more and more families are vacationing together by bicycle.”
