Luxury Family Holidays

Your family are the most important people in the world. And you want them to feel important during your time away. But every family is different, and it can be a lot of work pleasing everyone – especially today. However small or large – from the youngest of new-borns to parents and grandparents – your dreams, your tastes, your history – that’s what matters most.

We know this because we’re families ourselves

Luckily, our family trips are made by families, for families, meaning we know exactly how to take away the stress, the uncertainty, and the ‘are we there yets.’ So, when it comes to curating your family’s holiday, we always begin with who you are and what you want to feel. This approach – tailor-made, tried and true – stems from years of curating experiences not only for other families, but for our own.

And this is exactly why we don’t sell ‘trips’. Not obviously, at least. We’re in the business of creating memories in the making – unforgettable, remarkable, and like nothing else on earth.

Unparalleled luxury for you. Unbridled excitement for them. Safety and security for you all. Easy. But we can’t do anything about the tantrums. Sorry.

Know what you’re looking for? Great.

We believe in the power of inspiration

As travellers, we’ve spent our lives getting deeper and closer to our wide, wild world, figuring out the places and experiences that work best for families of all different types and sizes. This isn’t about box-ticking or completionism. We want to show you and your family the world in a way that works for you, and for you alone.

We’ll save you time, stress, and energy

Our travellers lead busy lives. And as modern life becomes ever more complex, it can be difficult to find the proper time to plan the family escape you deserve – overwhelmed by options and fretting about FOMO. Getting your family trip just-so can feel incredibly stressful. Happily, we’re here to figure out these details on your behalf, to do the heavy lifting and the precision engineering. This is your journey. We’re just here to steer the way.

We’re tailor-made

Most travel companies sell “packages” and fixed experiences. They’re off-the-shelf, and what you see is all that you get. But we’re different. These pages are filled with ideas and inspirations, but their purpose is to do just that – inspire. When you come with us, we’ll build your trip from the ground up – taking all your passions and personalities into account, from dinosaur-obsessed nine-year-olds to adults who’d like a little bit of downtime, just for themselves.

We’re experts

Simply put, we’re experts at family travel because we’re families ourselves. Over the years, we’ve brought together a team of impassioned globe-trotters and destination-obsessives. These are the people who’ll plan your trip, from the smallest details to the most sublime and remarkable of crescendos. And because so many of us know what it means to travel as a family, you can rest assured that we’ll never take this lightly.

What type of family holiday are you looking for?

We want to take you beyond the constraints of packages and cookie-cutter itineraries. We want to show you and your family the world – on your terms. For you, for yours.

Who’s going on your holiday?

Families come in all shapes and sizes. As such, we’ve organized our trips by ages – but that doesn’t mean they’re only for the kids. These finely-tuned forays into the world are designed to strike a balance. They’ll keep your kids in focus, but they’ll excite and entertain you, too. Of course, each and every Black Tomato trip is adjusted to suit the people travelling on it; so no two experiences will ever look the same.

The best holidays for toddlers

Whether you’re new to trips with small children or not, these adventures are designed to take the stress of transfers, timings, and organizing experiences away, so you can sit back and enjoy your trip too.

A good book can really take you places – whether that’s down a rabbit’s hole or all the way to an exotic treasure island. And with these immersive family experiences, we’re celebrating the transformative power of the books we loved when we were young, and the stories our children have come to adore themselves.

A dream come true

“Our Morocco trip was a dream come true – an amazing adventure of sights, sounds, and delicious food in an exotic location. Tailored to exactly our interests, our family was able to experience this delightful country through wonderful guides who shared their knowledge and expertise. We appreciated having a local contact if there were questions or changes we wanted to make and always felt well taken care of.”
