(Anaheim, October 2011) "“ With family travel in high demand, Trafalgar has introduced four exciting new itineraries in the 2012 Family Experiences brochure. Now adding up to 18 itineraries, the Family Experiences guided vacations are activity-packed and designed specifically to meet family travel needs.


The four new itineraries invite guests to explore Europe, as well as North America, Costa Rica, Peru and South Africa: Sorrento & Sicily Surprise; Greek Island Hopper; Conquistadors, Sacred Valleys & Inca Mysteries; and Dude Ranchin' Yellowstone & Glacier Roundup. All of Trafalgar's Family Experiences trips are designed with families in mind, customized to captivate travelers of all ages, and with sightseeing selected to fit a family's travel needs so they can enjoy the trip of a lifetime together. On the popular 8-day California Dreamin' trip, families enjoy a barbecue in Yosemite National Park, followed by eating s'mores around the campfire while listening to local folklore. Families on the 11-day Castles and Kilts trip will love that Trafalgar has something for everyone "“ kids can look forward to staying in a fantastic medieval-style castle for two nights and parents will revisit their youth on a day trip to Liverpool, where Beatlemania is still thriving.


"Our Family Experiences have become hugely popular with families looking for a well-organized, hassle-free vacation," says Paul Wiseman, President of Trafalgar USA. "Trafalgar takes care of the details on the trip, so that everyone in the family can relax and enjoy traveling the world together."


Families can also expect the same First Class quality of service on these trips as they would receive on any Trafalgar guided vacation. Guests travel on a comfortable coach with a highly knowledgeable Travel Director and experienced driver. Travelers also rest their heads at fantastic hotels that are located in the heart of their destination, like the Thistle Marble Arch in London and the Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Kids will love Trafalgar's special accommodations on select itineraries, like the lodges they'll stay at inside the Grand Canyon National Park on the 8-day Pioneer Adventures of the Old West and Lalibela Private Game Reserve in South Africa on the 13-day An African Adventure.
