Most enjoyable activity: Abseiling for feeling confident when facing a daunting task!! Least enjoyable: Nothing. Fab holiday enjoyed by all and great to be with similar families.

    I cannot praise Maria and her team enough. We had a very special holiday. Most enjoyable activity: Canyoning and swimming with dolphins. Tea plantation was also fascinating. Dolphins we were lucky with. The other family with us were great fun and we saw common and bottlenose dolphins and a loggerhead turtle at a distance from the boat. Canyoning: I had been a little nervous about but I absolutely

    A review of Lava Lands and Dolphin Swimming in the Azores by The Tutt Family & the Forrester Family

    As we are nearing the end of our holiday I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we have enjoyed it. The activities were really well organised and the Azores is an amazing place with plenty to keep the whole family entertained. We are having such a wonderful time thanks in no small part to our guide, Sandy, who has been quite outstanding and is a real credit to Activities Abroad.

    She is exceptionally knowledgeable about the Azores (well everything actually), good natured and humorous. She is also adaptable, having had to go out of her way to drive to an animal rescue centre to drop off an abandoned kitten that my daughter had found. I speak for the whole family when I say we feel lucky to have had Sandy for the whole week.

    09 August 2016

    Ivano our guide made the holiday extra special as he was such an interesting character who was extremely knowledgeable, generous, enthusiastic and good with all ages of the children who were there, ranging from 8 to 17. He made us all feel important. Also, hotel location and staff were excellent....activities were great. Our boys were exhausted after the week. I enjoyed the day on Ivano's boat

    snorkelling. We were able to snorkel in the bay because there were loads of fish there too. Mount Etna was also very interesting. I can’t think of a day that I didn’t enjoy – I didn’t want the holiday to end.

    A review of Active Sicily: Etna to Isola Bella by Rachel Marsden
    08 August 2016

    The very best thing about the holiday was Ivano. He was absolutely brilliant!!! He is intelligent, informed, interesting, capable, good fun, funny, kind and generally wonderful. He was fantastic with my children and we all became very attached to him. We genuinely got on well. He is a well-travelled and worldly-wise Sicilian which meant we could have great chats about everything. He was organised,

    prompt and very good at communicating with us about arrangements. He was extremely kind and generous and made the extra personal effort to make our holiday extra special. We all miss him and are so grateful to him for making our holiday just perfect. I would thoroughly recommend him as a fantastic holiday guide and I wish him the very best of luck with all his ventures.

  • Surf's up on the Alentejo Coast

    We could not fault the arrangements and planning of activities. The lagoon day was very special and we felt privileged to be able to have such a fabulous time in this secret place.

  • Holiday was excellent

    A review of Surf's up on the Alentejo Coast by The Webb Family
    06 August 2016

    The holiday was excellent. The activity hosts were professional and the organisation and execution of the activities were outstanding. All activities were enjoyed by one or more members of the family. There was not an activity that was not enjoyable. There were some that were more difficult than others to master. Surfing, for example, is very enjoyable but will take significant practice to master.
