This tour is operated in partnership with our sister company The Adventure Company (TAC), as such the group may be a mixture of Exodus and TAC clients.
This trip is booked through Exodus and you will receive the same award winning customer service that you are used to. TAC operate with the same core principles used by Exodus and champion the benefits of small group travel.
This is an adventurous tour packed with culture and magnificent sites; aimed at families travelling with older children (teenagers). Expect some culture shock. You'll be exposed to signs of poverty and access to services may be sporadic.
The food will be quite different to home and English speakers harder to find. Respecting the local culture will make it easier to fit in and really experience the location.
There is no global mobile phone coverage in Burma so your phone will not work, however it is now possible to purchase a local sim card. The internet can only be accessed well in Rangoon and Mandalay but is still not reliable.
Although we use internal flights where possible for the longer journeys (to Bagan, Heho and back to Yangon), when travelling by road you should be prepared for slow and arduous journeys on bumpy unsealed roads.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 16, plus leader. Minimum age 12.
Going on a Family Group trip is a fantastic way to meet new friends and create lasting friendships – for parents and children alike! These holidays combine exploration with sociability and fun, as other families will join you. Minimum ages vary across the trip range, but is usually from 5 years old.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
Our Family Group holidays usually cater for children from 5 years old. However, experience tells us that children tend to prefer mixing with their own age groups, especially teenagers. That’s why we’ve designated certain departures on our group trips as particularly recommended for teenagers. Whilst we don't restrict younger kids from joining these holidays, the 'recommended for teenagers' departures means there are likely to be other teenagers to share the experience with.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
All Exodus trips are active but some may have different activities scheduled every day. Activities we offer include kayaking in Slovakia, trekking in the Drakensberg, cycling in the Tuscan countryside or canoeing along the Zambezi River.
